This May we’re turning up the romance with a fun and flirty approach to spring style. Think soft colours like light pinks and blues, dove grey and creams. Flirty fabrics like lace, velvet and chiffon. Floral prints, delicate details and ultra flattering cuts. That’s right ladies, it’s time to show your love for fashion!
Whether you go pretty in pink, pick florals and swish in chiffon – or if you’re more of a jeans and t-shirt kinda of girl – remember, embracing this quote-unquote “girly” fashion in no way speaks to the kind of woman you are. Just because you wear flowers doesn’t mean you’re a wallflower! We all know that there isn’t any one way to dress “like a woman”.
Not a fan of pink – opt for soft blues or greys. Florals not your thing? Skip ’em. This look is all about celebrating the woman you are and the season ahead (if spring ever actually shows up).
Our “Girl in Focus” Bianca, however is a fan of pink, floral and lace. See how she embraces these trends.
