As the days are starting to stretch a bit (we’re not enjoying these dark mornings much!) and the daffodils are poking through, we can feel that spring is not that far away and boy are we ready to get outdoors again, and enjoy some warmer weather. So, if you’re thinking ahead to the Easter holidays and sitting out in your garden admiring the pretty spring flowers, don’t forget about your wardrobe too.
Now’s the time for a little refresh, to brighten up your look with some vibrant colour and print, and what could be better than gorgeous spring florals for a fresh update?
Maxi dresses are perfect for spring/summer and a printed one really makes an impact. Onjenu offer a fabulous selection of printed designs and we’ve picked out two of our favourite dresses. This Joni dress has such a bright, cheerful floral print and a high, round neckline with a nipped in waist. It’s so flattering and will look great with heels for a special occasion or just with flat sandals if you’re out to lunch with the girls.
The Onjenu Lauren dress comes in a fabulous tropical floral print with bird accents, which is so striking and perfect for warmer weather. The high neckline and long sleeves really give it an elegant look. Try it with metallic heels and a block colour clutch for a summer party.
Mix and match
If you’re not quite ready for head-to-toe florals, then just adding a pop of print works just as well. This gorgeous Greta dress from Ghost is just so chic. The colourful floral print against the black background really makes a statement and the details like the long sleeves with tie cuffs and the high neckline make it extra special.
We love putting together a smart printed blouse with our favourite jeans and this stylish Together top is a must-have. The pleated detail down the front and button fastening gives it a smart look that you can easily wear to work or dress down with trainers when you’re out shopping.
Nina Leonard style
This flattering dress is ideal for hot summer days with its loose fit and relaxed patch pockets on the front. We love the contrast of the floral print against the spotty background too. It would look great teamed with strappy flat sandals and an over-sized sun hat.
Another favourite of ours is this bold floral print top with 3/4 length sleeves and a tie front. The loose shape works well with fitted trousers or skinny jeans and makes it so comfortable to wear too. Try it with classic blue jeans and crisp white trainers for a fresh spring look.
A pair of printed trousers will really brighten up your wardrobe perfectly for spring/summer. These stylish ones from Denim & Co. are ankle length and have a stretch waistband making them so comfy and easy to wear. You can mix and match them with plain tees or a simple block colour blouse and you’ve got the perfect outfit for day or evening!
This printed jersey Harbour top is a classic Joules design. It has 3/4 length sleeves with a boat neckline and comes in a choice of prints. We love the striped option with a scattering of flowers across the chest – such an effortlessly chic piece that adds a feminine touch to everyday looks.
We hope this has inspired you to get ready to ditch the chunky knits and freshen up for spring!
