5 style statements for Spring

I’ve been anticipating the warmer weather for a while now and I feel as soon as I think it’s arrived, a cold spell decides to take over. However, it is Spring and everything is blooming apart from my very ‘winter-themed’ wardrobe. Despite the weather I have decided enough is enough, and I’ve been searching far and wide for my Spring wardrobe inspiration. I’ve come across some key trends and statement looks that I am totally in love with – here are my 5 style statements for Spring!

1. Cut-offs

I never thought I’d see the day where I: a) referred to a trouser as a ‘cut-off’ and b) actually want to wear one. However, this jumpsuit is a massive game changer for me. The gorgeous blush pink, the texture and cut out style is just stunning. But most of all, I can actually dig the shorter leg with this piece. Needless to say, I am working my butt of in the gym so my abs look good enough to wear this!

2. Cold shoulders

Tops with no shoulders are a total winner this season. There are some really nice styles out there. I try to find the most unusual piece, rather than a plain top with cut out shoulders. I’ve featured a top I found on ASOS this week, I love the mesh stitching and the way it drapes on to the arm. Again, I’m all over blush pink colours this season.

3. Plunge necklines

So, I confess, I already have this top. In fact, I bought it last month because as soon as I saw it I wanted it! As a ‘bigger busted’ lady, I struggle terribly to find a plunge neckline that I can actually wear with a decent enough bra. Nobody wants an unexpected ‘reveal’. This top from River Island is perfect because of the covered back and ribbed material. I wore this on a night out and no boob drama – win!

4. Espadrilles

The 90’s shoe seems to have made a dramatic comeback. I’ve always hated them. Literally never owned a pair. BUT. I was browsing on my beloved Kurt Geiger website and decided to scan their espadrille range. That’s when I came across these beautifully bright and summery pair. After more scanning, I came to the conclusion that the majority of espadrilles I do not like, however, there are some really nice styles and designs which I can dig. Also, with age comes the need for comfort – just sayin’!

5. Off the shoulder, floaty tops

Back in the day, I had loads of these ‘gypsy’ style tops. I loved them then, but I was unsure when my sister came to see me recently wearing one. After 30 minutes, I totally got it. Even more so, when looking at the ranges on the high street. I love the one I have featured, which is available on ASOS. Plain and simple sometimes does it.

So these are 5 style statements for Spring, which I’m sure will continue on in to the Summer. I think we can all agree that anything that doesn’t feature shoulder coverage is a winner at the moment!
