Outfit Ideas: Spring Outfits

With spring starting to bloom, we’ve put together some outfit ideas to welcome the long awaited warmer months. This year’s spring catwalks have seen a rainbow of bolder hues; out with the washed out pastel and in with daring and deeper colour – from day to night wear, one thing is for sure, colour is key.

Outfit Ideas: Spring Work Wear

Spring Outfit 1 - THEN AND NOW SHOPDon’t let the office hinder your spring fashion expression. Pick a bold skirt with colour block shades or a floral print and pair with a plain shirt. Here we’ve combined the Confashion Pleated Blue Skirt with the A-Line Silk White Shirt to create a clean, modest, but bright look to keep you cool and collected in the office. Keep the shoes neutral and let the bag do the talking. We’ve opted for the De Siena White Mules to complete a matching silhouette. We adore the new Clemence Flane Satchel Bags in yellow – this bag couldn’t be more perfect for spring if it tried. Throw on some Established Sydney Vintage Sunglasses and you’ll be sure to look chic and professional for any office environment.

Spring Outfit 2 - THEN AND NOW SHOPSpring brings a flurry of garden-esque event invitations; Polo, Ascot, Garden Parties, the list is endless. To ensure that you’re event ready this spring, have a look at our new Sarah’s Bag Frangi Pani Clutch. Paired with an ivory ensemble, the green and yellows of this bag pop beautifully. We’ve chosen the Antipodium Culotte Trousers in Ivory and the Yuzzo London White High-Neck Top to create a retro glamour feel that will contrast with this admirably edgy clutch bag. Pop on a pair of Duke & Dexter Turquoise Loafers to keep comfy throughout the day; the luxe turquoise colour will also peep through under the culottes as you walk. To complete the look and keep prepared for any blinding sun, wear the Established Amos Green Sunglasses.

Outfit Ideas: Spring Casual

Spring Outfit 3 - THEN AND NOW SHOPFor those comfy days in spring spent shopping or running errands, this outfit is practical and stylish. Opt for shorts and espadrilles for an effortless look. We’ve picked the Hoss Intropia Black Crepe Wide Shorts and the Ori & Occi Domino Linen Espadrilles, keeping with a monochromatic theme to allow the Alesya Orlova Shopper to contrast against these black and white blocks. The Less Is More Shopper is ideal for carrying around during the daytime and in this block orange hue, it will brighten up any simple outfit. Throw on the Antipodium Washed Silver Metallic Bomber Jacket to nail another two trends for this season: the bomber and the metallic. There is something about this jacket that just oozes cool.

ANTIPODIUM – WASHED SILVER METALLIC BOMBER JACKET

Outfit Ideas: A Night Out In Spring

Spring Outfit 4 - THEN AND NOW SHOPDare to be bold this spring. When treating yourself to a night on the town, why not try mixing bold colours and patterns. Keep the base simple; we’ve opted for the Hemyca Black Leather Peggy Dress. By keeping the base one block colour, you are then free to experiment with bold colour in the accessories. We love the Oysby Decollette Orange Pumps: everything about this shoe is unusual; from the gradient colour to the geometric heel, this shoe is sure to be a spring hit. Drape the Av By Adriana Voloshchuk Structured Jacket in this striking lime green over the top of the leather dress, and pair with Sarah’s Bag Hibiscus Clutch to tie all the colours together. For that extra finishing touch and sparkle, indulge in Afew Jewels Oulu White Gold and Black Rhodium Earrings.
