The fresh new horizons of spring are starting to show signs from new buds appearing on the trees to birds busily tweeting in the air. Yes we can officially talk about your spring summer wardrobe as winter sales start to draw to a close.
2014 Spring/Summer is bringing us a delight of sugar sorbet tones from dusty light mauves to the sweet soft tones of peach, pinks and corals. As the evenings stretch and everything becomes a little brighter so too should our wardrobe.
Invest in pieces that can be worn or layered with your current heavier winter wardrobe; pinks with soft greys for example are a great way to start introducing the fashions of the spring into our current wardrobe without feeling you are inviting a cold to come stay. It is these subtle introductions that will enable us to welcome spring / summer without giving us a shock.
The soft and elegant tones from Ti-Mo, available at Utopia, Dunshaughlin are stunning but maybe rock it with a tougher shoe or boot to give it that edgier feel.
The sophisticated tones in this seasons Marc Cain collection, available at Jennys, Ashbourne, welcomes spring sorbets without you feeling like you are in kinder-garden.
Sorbet tones can be difficult to pull off, so ensure that the colour is good for your skin tone and if you still feel it is not for you introduce it with accessories -the easy way for staying bang on trend.
