Spring has arrived. Usually, when this season comes along, we associate it with pastel colours, however, current beauty trends are still obsessed with darker colour palettes. Most celebrities are opting to wear wine, mahogany, deep purple, and velvets. I love autumn because these shades are on trend, so I’m ecstatic that everyone is still buzzing about the darker shades. They get more airtime which I’m happy about, but there are other benefits such as making great base tones for the transitional period where we begin changing our styles to accommodate the warmer weather and new fashion trends. As spring is among us, and lust lists are all the rage, I’ve decided to pair the two together and share this seasonal spring lust list.
Hoppen Quilted Shoulder Bag in Wine by LYDC
I find the colour of wine a symbol of class, sophistication, and suave. Easily paired with most outfit choices, whether dressing up or down, it works wells. Whilst we’re at it lets pair it with a wine pom-pom, reminding me of the fluffiness of spring. Although the colour suits autumn, if paired with a white or pastel sundress, the wine duo will be seen as statement pieces as they contrast the outfit.
Alice And You Black Eyelash Lace Slip Dress by Dorothy Perkins
Slip dresses are definitely in fashion for the upcoming seasons, they were spotted on the runways of SS16 fashion shows, as well as documented in popular magazines, such as Glamour or Cosmopolitan. This Dorothy Perkins slip dress is basically a simple little black dress (LBD), rather than most I’ve seen which resemble lingerie. The lace detailing at the bottom gives it great sex appeal, whilst remaining conservative, I love the simplicity of the dress.
Wide Fit Tan Suedette Ghillie Wedges by New Look
Heading towards the common spring shades, I’ve been lusting over some tan wedges. When it comes to shoes I’ll usually be wearing wedges, chunky heel boots, or booties. These shoes remind me of a pair of sandals that I owned when I was much younger, plus these wedges are simple yet cute. Hmm, anyone seeing a common theme here, simplicity? or perhaps a minimalist approach?
