FOUR EASY WAYS TO UPDATE YOUR WARDROBE THIS SPRING

So, the UK is currently experiencing a heat wave and
if you're anything like me, you've suddenly panicked
that you have N O T H I N G nice to wear
in your wardrobe, so you instantly trawl ASOS
in the hopes there is something you like enough to
buy OR you do what I've also done in the past -
have a complete melt down that you're a
sweaty hideous mess, nothing looks good &
you're also a lil bit poor so you refuse to leave the house.

But have no fear lol. I've spent the last month or so spending and putting together S/S outfits, so that you don't have to.

So here's Four easy ways to update your wardrobe this spring.

Nothing screams summer quite like cute dresses and they don't have to be floral either! The range on the high street is usually outstanding every season and this year its no different. You can go for striped, frilly, polka dot or plain and the style can differ too. I usually opt for a midi dress, with either long fluted sleeves, or short sleeves with a bardot cut. Whatever style tickles your fancy, dresses are a sure fire affordable way, to update your spring wardrobe.

Tip:

If your strapped for cash you can always just recycle your winter floral dresses. Pair them with strappy sandals or lace up wedges to turn them into a more summery vibe.

Lightweight jackets are my go to when it starts to get warmer, as I still enjoying layering even during S/S. I am particularly obsessed with this khaki one from River Island. The fit is bang on and at the moment, I'm reaching for it everyday (defo need to get it in black too). Lightweight jackets are comfortable and stylish & are great for British weather because although it may be warm, it could also possibly rain lol.

I wear mine with dresses, denim, jumpsuits, skirts, and trousers. Its the most interchangeable jacket I own.

Tip:

Add some cute badges to make your jacket more individual.

Khaki khaki khaki. A colour I gravitate towards as soon as the sun starts to shine. There are lots of different ways to inject khaki into your wardrobe, from jackets to trousers, bags to shoes. I recently purchased a pair of khaki cargo pants and I am utterly in love with them - post on those badboys coming soon.

Khaki is great for those who are scared to wear colour. It's not monochromatic but its not completely in your face and I think thats why I love it so much.

A plain khaki jacket is also a more sophisticated twist on the camo jacket!

I love colour! It makes me feel happy & sassy and the easiest way I inject it into my outfits, is with my accessories and sometimes even my makeup. As I've got older, I am trying to invest in more pieces that will last me years, and buying a bright yellow dress just isn't always justifiable. However, a bright yellow bag IS!

Tip:

Go all out with statement, bold accessories. Big, garish jewellery is bang on trend this season, with the likes of Mango & New Look absolutely killin' it. I personally love bright and busy shoes too. ASOS and Office are great for this.

    Love the layout of this post! You gave some great tips btw, I literally felt slightly panicked when I checked the weather forecast. But luckily I was able to recycle most of my autumn/winter wardrobe with some S/S updates 🙂 x http://www.justsavxnnah.com

    This dress looks so pretty on you, Gracie! Love this whole look! I definitely wasn’t expecting the heat wave this soon, such lovely weather in May is such a rarity – so I’ve literally had nothing to wear these past few days! The good thing is I have the perfect excuse to get hauling! Love your tips and picks 🙂
