Transitioning, Winter into Spring

Transitioning, Winter into Spring.

With the clock brought forward I think it might be safe to say it’s officially Spring unless if we get a surprise snow fall like last week.  AnyhoO positive thinking only, I’m here to show you how you can shift your cozy Winter looks into wearable Spring trends.

Now let’s face it although it’s officially Spring the air is still quite chilled so put aside your double breast coats  and opt for a wrap around wool coat. It’s lighter in weight, keeps you warm when there’s a chill and looks great opened up with a T-shirt or blouse teamed with Jeans or Khakis.

I love wearing lighter tones in the warmer months so when I spotted this lovely 1960s checked coat in my local vintage shop, it was love at first sight. I teamed this coat with an oversized acrylic neck piece from Marks and Spencers, a chocolate brown vest top and a caramel bootcut and black patent shoes. A casual smart look to combat the chills and welcome in the warmth.

Hey Fashionistas!! Its been a minute, how are you all doing?? My first blog post of 2018!!! I know I know forgive me.

So this time last week I looked at my 3 invites, and was trying to decided where I could squeeze in a show or two. I’ve been very busy lately however I was determined not to miss Fashion Week, I was going to see some shows no matter what.

Well I was late to 2 but managed to see 1 and it just happened to be one of my favourites. 1 out of 3 isn’t bad!!

London Fashion Week for me is all about the creativity, the undiscovered, the young bloods who are hungry for the spotlight the ‘Off Schedule’ shows. Please read my piece on why I love the ‘Off Schedule’ shows.

Apu Jan is one of my favourite labels and every season feels like a continuation of the one before. Unlike other young labels Apu Jan’s brand identity is very strong. They know who they are and are consistent every season. Their colour palette never really change from season to season, they’re very consistent and creative in the textures they use, the shape, and scale they create. They’re playful with their materials and always use juxtapose fabrics and textures to create elegance, and timeless pieces. There’s always an element of the Far East cleverly woven through the collection.

Here are a few that caught my eye tell me what you think below.   Rx
