“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.”
So said Pablo Neruda, and indeed, this weekend’s onslaught on the senses reminded us that the Great British weather is more than capable of pulling a double digit-er out of the bag. We were left stunned in the face of the sunshine, scrabbling through our wardrobes in a vain attempt to pull together a look from the great unknown. We questioned whether our now go-to uniform of ankle boots, skinny jeans and oversized jumpers could still work for our new Spring wardrobe. Pondered over whether we could realistically swap boots for flats. Questioned the suitability of fur in the heat… so many questions, so few hours of sunshine to make the most of! As we take our first tentative steps into the new season, join us to round up the hottest Spring picks from some of the lesser known Mallzee HQ favourites to carry your Winter look through the tender days of Spring…
Swop your chunky oversized knit for something lighter and brighter to welcome in the first days of Spring. Liberty lead the way with their blossoming collection; treat yourself to this punchy pink Carven floral print if you’re feeling feminine or stick with classic stripes courtesy of Sessun.
Keen to free your feet from Winter boots but can’t bear to sacrifice their comfort levels? Plump for the footwear choice of the season, slip on sneakers, to combine comfort and style perfectly. Throw in a jazzy print, such as this classic leopard print from Glassworks, and you’re onto a sure fire winner.
As we edge away from ankle boots, it frees us up to the possibility of, deep breath now, not having to tuck our jeans into boots. In such a world, 7/8th jeans suddenly become our new BFFs. This Pull and Bear pair are just worn in enough…
For a more pulled together look, Oxygen Boutique’s monochrome tuxedo pants offer a chic alternative. Subtle style features such as leather belt loops elevate these trews into a new level of subliminal style.
Finally, no Spring look would be complete without a lightweight jacket to see off those pesky April showers; this American Vintage beauty from The Dressing Room is the ideal style to top off many a laid back look. As the days grow longer, reach for it in the morning to see you straight from work to bar, too.
