Everybody seems to be excited about spring and despite all of this the weather has not been so good to us. I walk pass flowering trees in my winter coat in gloomy London and in my mind I am wearing my best spring outfit and grabbing takeaway coffee.
Well even if the weather is not giving us what we want we can still think about spring looks and what to wear. I don’t how about you but spring is one of the seasons when I love to refresh my wardrobe as London can be strange. You sometimes end up wearing your spring jacket in the summer so for us Londoners it is clever to splurge little bit on these pieces.
So what to wear this spring?
Oversized blazers and wool blazers
Oversized blazers are not going anywhere. Think YSL or Isabel Marant and million other desingers and brands that incorporated this trend to their collection. One brand I love that does this so well is Marcela London. Frankie shop is another winner and to be honest if you look at their outerwear you will see pretty much all the spring jackets I am talking about in this article. And let’s face it a good wool blazer is an investment for life.
Trench coats – Play with fabrics
This classic will hopefully never come out of fashion. A classic trench should be part of your capsule wardrobe however brands are bringing exciting cuts, fabrics and shapes. I love what the aboved mentioned Frankie shop is doing and so many fabulous brands. If you give me oversized leather or faux leather trench I will be a happy lady.
I love a good bomber jacket. I am dreaming of a YSL one but adore brands like Allsaints, Anine Bing, Frankie shop, Sezane amongst the more affordable. Of course high-street players like Zara or H&M are not behind. As a matter of fact I ordered this H&M one that is exclusive online and it looks like a dream. It also comes in black and looks so much more expensive than it is. And to be honest even both my kids have a bomber jacket so spring we are ready for you.
Cropped jackets – Play with fabrics
I love cropped jackets at the moment and you can see here why. It looks so cool and chic and just perfect for those spring days when it is not overly cold. Oh yes sometimes girl has to stay warm right? I say play with fabrics as leather is not the only option. I love tweed models, teddy fabrics, wool and more. These jackets can be fun but yes leather is a great investment long term.
Spring may be still weeks away but I personally love to save fashion ideas in advance. Firstly I love to have my wardrobe ready so it is always good to do review in case you need to update your capsule wardrobe. Also it can help you to declutter and only keep things you resonate with you. New year new you attitude is always a great idea.
Well, spring break outfits may look differently in London to the rest of the world. One thing I love though about spring trends and style is the fun. I am thinking light layers, cute jackets. You can also combine lighter blazers but still use scarves. You can wear cute shoes whether it is the trending Adidas Samba or some cute pair of sling back shoes. And if you fancy different pair you can explore sale up to 75 % off at Schuh.
SHOP THIS TREND
Red is still going strong during spring 2024
One of the trends that is still staying is touch of red. You may have seen all over social media but a cute red bag, shoes or even pair of tights is a sensible investment. And if you feel like that this trend is not worth to spend that much think outside of the box and maybe invest in nice red socks that can peak out of your loafers.
SHOP THIS TREND:
Chic tailoring and pencil skirts
Whilst some may be searching comfort and leggings kind of outfits there will be surely lovers of this trend. Elsa Hosk as always mastering stunning two piece and we also gonna look fabulous in pencil skirts. If you still love the maxi skirts keep them but do not be afraid to wear your midi pencil fits too.
Net-a-Porter is one of those shopping destination where shoppers may think they cannot afford even pair of socks. However the website stocks so many great pieces even as low as 50 £. You can really upgrade your wardobe and get the luxury shopping experience.
Another thing I love about them is that in some locations like London for example you can get the items on the same day which is amazing. Their return process is also fantastic.
You can shop more affordable of course when the sales hit but also so many of their New IN are well priced. Their buyers are fantastic as they really hit the nail when it comes to the stock. If you are looking to upgrade your capsule wardrobe you can do that and if you want trendy you can also find incredible items.
If you are thinking also to invest in a new bag but do not want to spend much I have great tips for you. Some of the bags would work incredible well with these picks.
I personally would love to get more of the capsule wardrobe items that are good for every day. If I think about it I do school runs the most and usually opt for very low key outfits like t-shirts and leggings with trainers or cosy tracksuits.
However, I love the idea of dressing up for events, lunches with friends or perhaps dinners so I wanted to include few more dress up items.

If you are like me then after Christmas you start to dream of spring. So here I am sitting on the sofa in January dreaming of warmer and longer days but also about all those coffee breaks outside.
THE SAMBA OBSESSION CONTINUES
And what better time there is to plan your spring wardrobe. I am not a somebody that builds up a brand new closet each season however I like to get few new items to spruce things up. Adidas Samba is a trainer that I actually thought was hideous last year but it really starts to grow on me. I was not getting the whole Tiktok viral obsession but do you know what sometimes I wait and wait and eventually end up liking the item. I actually love it not only with cool looks like you can see in the first picture but also certain type of skirt. Leopard print is another big trend and yes there are super cute YSL heels but this is more about updating your wardrobe under 100 £.
WHAT TO SHOP? YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO BIG
So bring some colour in, get that faux leather trench or cute patent loafers. You will also wear over and over cute sweatshirt or knit. Check your wardrobe and make sure you have enough of capsule items like jacket or skirt that goes with everything and invest in accessories. Even a small item like sunglasses can really be a nice touch. You can play with colours and texture. I am definitely thinking of investing in croc leather pants or skirt.
And if you want to splurge more and maybe invest in the bag to go with these more affordable outfits you have my support.
