Spring has finally sprung! You know what that means – you can finally unearth all your favourite flirty and feminine frocks that have been lying low for the winter. While some classics never die, it’s also the perfect time to spice up your spring wardrobe with some fresh, new seasonal pieces.
Not sure where to start? Spring 2015 is all about embracing soft, romantic colours and retro detailing. To achieve this look, we’re going to combine a dash of old, a splash of new and, most importantly, a touch of you!
Whether you’re planning to hit the Spring Races or heat up your love life this season, we’ve you covered with a fab new outfit that’s sure to set hearts racing.
Let’s get started!
To set the romantic tone for this look, we started with a traditional peach dress. The Greylin Finley Lace Up Back Skater Dress (ASOS – $123) is a great choice, because it marries a modern skater dress cut with 90’s lace strip detailing to create an innovative, fashion-forward combination. The dress is brought together by a classic sweetheart neckline that will draw just a hint of attention to your décolletage without being too cheeky.
It wouldn’t be an Australian spring outfit without a pair of sandals. But sandals don’t have to be daggy, and these Orange Barely There Sandals (River Island – $60) serve as absolute proof! Decked out with a sexy, stiletto heel and trendy horizontal straps, these dramatic sandals will elongate your legs to create a slimming effect. Their eye-catching hue is caught between strawberry ice pink and tangerine orange – two of Pantone’s hottest colours for Spring/Summer2015.
Let’s face it – spring weather can be unpredictable. One minute you’re basking in the glorious sunshine and the next you’re quivering like a leaf in the breeze. Fortunately, the Spring/Summer 2015 runways heralded a huge comeback for one of our retro favourites: denim jackets. Not only will this dark wash Marley Denim Jacket (OASIS – $75) keep you warm, it’ll also provide a touch of edgy contrast to your otherwise romantic look. Wear it open over your gorgeous peach dress to frame your figure and create a stir.
Another trend making a serious comeback is sheer tights for spring. We love the Pretty Polly Open Sandal Toe Tights (Miss Ruby Legwear – $13.65), because they make it so easy to rock open toed, summer shoes without a visible pantyhose line. Sheer tights are also perfect for disguising any discolouration, blemishes or spots you missed while shaving. But if you really want to get those pins noticed, opt for the Pretty Polly Just Oiled Sheer Pantyhose (Miss Ruby Legwear -$13.50) – they’ll give your legs an unbeatable, silky glow.
Finally, it’s time to accessorise. The Kardashian Kollection Sunner Nights Oversized Clutch (Ever Me – $69.99) in melon pink is deliciously en vogue. The juicy shade pays homage to Pantone’s favourite strawberry ice shade for spring 2015, while the gold detailing adds sassiness to this otherwise sweet design. The optional chain strap also means you can instantly transform this versatile clutch into a bag.
And there you have it! That completes our take on a fresh, romantic outfit to wear out on your next spring-fling!
