The moment the temperature rises above 10degrees Celsius – I’m ready to get a head start on my sartorial spring wardrobe. The Spring/Summer 2016 runway was a visual feast. From romantic ruffles & lace to glitzy lamé and shiny textures. It’s really time to elevate & experiment with your style.
Shop my top picks for Spring from Shrimpton Couture below & really heighten that wardrobe by investing in some stand-out pieces!
All things feminine really ruled the runway. The mix of ruffles, metallic threading & pale pink chiffon really make this 1980s Judy Hornby dress such a must have. Personally, it’s something I would wear not only on a night out, but to the office - dressed down with a denim jacket & little beret.
Embrace the grunge & inject some sheer, lingerie-like pieces into your wardrobe. My favourite: this 90s Vivienne Westwood’s Gilt Painted Knit Skirt & Tank. This look is so cool & current.
From Marni to Marc Jacobs, sequins & sparkle never looked so good. I’m obsessed with this 70s Nina Ricci sequin corset top (or micro mini, if you’re feeling dangerous). Wear with a pair of adored high-waisted black jeans & strappy heels, or be daring and pair with some on-trend fishnets.
Denim is huge for spring! For me, mixing similar blues to create a Canadian Tuxedo effect – always looks fashionable. This 70s Adolfo blue & silver knit jacket would be the perfect sartorial choice to be paired with your favourite denim.
A colourful, artful accessory is very on-trend for 2016. I love to experiment with my choice of accessory, whether it be footwear or an interesting bag. Currently, I’m coveting this incredible handmade Dior fabric clutch. The colour combination & print is perfect for Spring!
