Introducing New Look’s latest Spring Collection!
Girls can never have enough clothes, can we? But moolah is always not enough. The best way to make the most out of our wardrobe is to invest in multifunction and seasonless items so as to ensure that we get the most out of every piece we buy. Think about what you will wear it with and where. Something that can be worn with many items in your wardrobe and easily transitions from work to weekend or a night out is a wise investment.
Let’s see how you can put together 3 fabulous looks with just one great trend item.
Bright & bold colours are all the rave this season on the runways. The Spring staple from New Look we are going to style is this electric blue t-shirt dress, $73.90, an absolute must-have for the season.
It’s the weekend and you want to hit the town with your girlfriends. Turn this simple t-shirt tunic into the ultimate party outfit by accessorizing! Ah….the power of accessories! Pile on some accessories for that extra feminine touch like a gold drape necklace ($19.90). For a sexier silhouette, cinch at the waist with a leopard print waist belt ($19.90). Finally, show off your amazing legs with a pair of two-tone stilettos ($53.90). This pleated satin clutch ($19.90) goes very well with this outfit too.
Meeting your best pals for a coffee or heading to school? Pair your t-shirt dress with a grey cardigan ($59.90) and canvas pump wedges ($69.90) for a preppy look. Not forgetting, a knot necklace ($19.90) and you are all set!
Going for an interview to nail your ideal job. Who says you have to dress in dull colours? Wear your t-shirt dress as a blouse and pair it with a cute pencil skirt ($53.90). A pair of loafer platform heels ($59.90) and a mock croc satchel ($33.90) will help pull your look together. A corsage necklace ($13.90) adds a sweet touch and now you’re all set to land that dream job!
With every new season comes new fashion trends and the irresistible urge to revamp your closet. This Spring, it’s time to be a fashion rebel and break some fashion rules!
No Denim on Denim
The 70’s look is a sure-hit this Spring and denim is key for this trend. The trick to pulling off denim on denim is to pick different shades. Remember to keep it simple so you look more sophisticated and less tacky.
For example, pair off your skinny flare jeans ($59.90) with a denim vest ($53.90) of a lighter shade. Choose a tie-front blouse ($63.90) for that hippy look and match them with sky high raffia wedges ($69.90).
No to print clashes
Mixing prints has become a major trend and big fashion names are all following suit. Yes, it can be quite a mess if done wrongly so here’s a trick on how you can mix patterns without looking silly.
The trick is to keep colours within the same tonal family. Make sure the dominant colours of the two prints are the same.
Try it out with this striped red jersey top ($19.90) & cherry-print skort ($49.90). The dominant colours for these patterns are red and off-white. To blend the two patterns, use a brown waist belt ($19.90). This look is super chic when paired off with cut-out leather heel ($69.90).
Shoes & bags have to match!
Although matching the two can result in a more classy & coordinated look, there is no need to match your shoes & bag. So long as both of them go with your outfit, breaking this rule can help enhance up your look.
A brown satchel ($63.90) can match a pair of coral & gold ballet flats ($39.90) since both items complement the pussybow chiffon blouse ($49.90) and navy high waisted shorts ($49.90).
We hope that with these fashion tips, you’ve learnt how to make the most of your wardrobe without breaking the bank & tackled some tricky Spring trends!
Woo hoo! You are on your way to being more fashion savvy! 🙂
