Transition your Wardrobe from Winter to Spring
– by Park Royal
Ahh..those cold winter days are behind us! Wait..not quite yet. During the month of March it’s hard not to shop for spring and look ahead to warmer weather, but when planning your outfits remember that some days still feel like winter!
Wardrobe Staple – Black Turtleneck
The first wardrobe staple that we love is a turtleneck. Try a ribbed knit turtleneck by Simons’ TWIK like this one!
Culottes and other wide leg pants are on trend this spring, and these flowy black culottes with a side vertical stripe are very flattering and pair perfectly with a tighter-fitting or more structured top! Like a ribbed turtleneck for example!
One telltale sign that spring is fast approaching are the cool mornings giving way to warmer afternoons. Start the day with a classic black leather jacket, this one by Simons, to complete your look. It’s a closet staple that you will want to pull out over and over again this month.
Spring 2019 – Cropped Jacket
Crop it like it’s hot! Switch out your knee length parka for a jacket that sits at waist height. Whether you prefer the structured look, or a little something fleece-y, we’d like to present you with two ways to honour the cropped look of the season (or in-between season).
First is the Cropped Faux-Leather jacket by Simons’ ICONE. This jacket is a more structured look and can be used to dress-up an outfit for work or play. Oh ya.. and it’s pink! If that doesn’t say spring is coming, we don’t know what will.
The second jacket is a softer touch and keeps your outfit a bit more casual. This Polar Fleece Shacket by TWIK is as warm as its name predicts and helps to add a pop of colour. While the material is not structured, this jacket has clean lines and a defined collar to give it shape.
We paired these jackets with a knee-length black denim skirt from Simons. This skirt is a nod to summer days, but its length and colour make it more formal and fitting for the current temperatures. On days that feel more like winter add skin colour stockings or opaque black tights to keep your legs warm. Tip: for the most flattering look choose a hemline that hits either just above or just below the knee.
Spring In Our Step – Babydoll Dress
This is the look for those bluebird days that we get every now and then during this time of the year. The geometric shapes pattern on this Fine Arts Babydoll dress by TWIK is a spring style that we love! This shirtdress is made with fine cotton. Make it weather-appropriate by pairing it with black leggings and a classic leather jacket. The last thing you need to tie this look together is a smile! We promise spring is coming soon, but until then don’t be afraid to embrace spring fashion and remember to stay warm!
