4 steps to getting your wardrobe ready for spring | EQVVS
Will it rain? Will it be sunny? We’ve got you covered, because it’s going to be both.
With lighter nights setting in, you’ be forgiven for thinking it’s time to ditch the jackets and bust out the t-shirt. The truth is we’re still a long way from summer – this time last year we were caked in snow (remember that?). So it’s not quite time for those coveted pub beer gardens just yet, but have patience, you’ll be there soon enough. Until then, it’s time to layer up, and never stop looking stylish.
Refresh your basics
There’s no substitute for a good quality t-shirt. They’re the backbone on which all good wardrobes are built. But while winter has seen them hidden with chunky knitwear and padded jackets, spring is the time to set them free.
Take advantage of unique logos and bright colours that will pop through your other layers. Basic shirts and polos will work wonderfully underneath jackets in the spring, and will see you through summer as stand-alone pieces. Invest in a good quality top now, and you’ll be set for the rest of the year.
Stock up on spring shades
The subtle art of the spring shade. Time to ditch the khaki winter parka but not quite time to unleash the neon swim shorts. Instead, gentle injections of colour will help re-invigorate your spring pieces.
There are exceptions, of course: white is seasonless, yellow and pink should be worn sparingly and black will never go out of style.
Luckily we’ve set up a handy page to guide you through what’s available. Aren’t we helpful?
Life-saving lightweight layers
We really don’t need to lecture you on the unpredictability of the British weather. Lightweight layers are going to be a mainstay throughout the year, but never more so than spring.
Think hoodies, overshirts or easy-wearing hooded jackets. There should definitely be a waterproof in your collection too. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Never neglect footwear
If you read our blogs or follow us on social media you’ll have noticed that one of our essential pieces of advice is to never neglect your footwear. It’s the difference between an average outfit and a great outfit. The difference between getting in to the club, and getting turned away at the door. The difference between handsome eligible bachelor and ‘yeah he’s nice but his mum still buys his shoes’.
Spring is the perfect time to add some fresh kicks to your rotation. The Nubikk Scott Phantom Trainers have just landed and they’re bang on-trend, while the Filling Pieces Low Mondo Ripple Trainers provide the perfect neutral, but extremely stylish, base to build any outfit around.
