As we welcome in spring, it’s a perfect time to refresh our personal style and wardrobe goals. This season, fashion offers us a vibrant collection of prints, textures, colours and new takes on classic wardrobe staples, making many of this seasons trends wearable pieces that can add real value to our existing wardrobes.
I feel spring is the season of refreshment, a stark contrast compared to the months just passed and known to lift our mood, enhanced by what we wear. It’s a time to define what you want from your wardrobe, get clear on your personal style goals and your individual style direction.
A new season brings new options that we might not have had access to explore before. Often these can be labelled as fashion trends or trend based items. It’s extremely common to shy away from items outside of what we’re used to, in fear they will only last one season and lack the longevity we want.
But, through understanding your current wardrobe and which trends truly encapsulate your personal style direction, you’re able to make mindful shopping choices and successfully introduce these trends into your wardrobe for years to come. You can still maintain a classic wardrobe and a capsule approach and have elements of trends present across your outfit mix.
Experimenting with new season items is a great way to grow your personal style, further define it and really allow yourself the option to explore and experiment with items you may not have been open to before. There’s a lot you can learn through the process of experimentation.
Remember, style is subjective, your personal style doesn’t have to reside within one style, you can venture outside of this and introduce new items that will work within your wardrobe. If you really find yourself drawn to certain items, cuts, prints, colours or textures this season, give yourself the opportunity to give it a go. It could become another layer to your personal style, giving you more variety and adding real value to your existing wardrobe.
So, happy spring everyone, enjoy this energy shift and let this reflect in what you choose to wear this season.
