10 Style Swaps to Make Today || Wear This Not That

Spring is almost in the air and before you know it you’ll be pulling out your past season pieces and deciding what you need to buy. This season is all about style swaps, nothing particularly new, just reworked. Here’s what you need to know.

The Pinstriped Shirt is Replaced by the Blouse

This Spring the look is more feminine which means blouses, not so much shirts. Whether they are ruffled, polka dot or a Victorian collar style, this the way to go this season.

The Cropped Pant is Replaced by the Wide Legged Baggy Pant

We have worn this style for a few seasons now and its now time to lay it to rest. The wide-legged baggy pant in soft and floating fabrics are the way to go this Spring. Wear them with sneakers if your tall enough or some funky heels.

The Color Red is Replaced by the Color Pink

‘Pretty in Pink’ is all the rage this Spring/Summer 2018. From the top to bottom tailored pant suits, handbags and of course shoes!

Bold Florals are Replaced by Delicate Smaller Floral Prints

Well let’s just say that Laura Ashley replaces Marimekko this season. Gentle pastel floral motifs have taken over from the bold and bright florals of past seasons.

Brights are in but Pastels are All the Rage

Pastels are having a serious moment and although you can still wear your brights, color blocking pastels are equally modern.

The Slipper is Replaced by the Strappy Flat Sandal

There is a new sandal in the house. The flat, thin-strapped sandal, or what we like to call the modern gladiator is all the rage. So farewell Moroccan babouche, for a little while at least.

The Square Handbag is Replaced by the Round Bag

The tambourine handbag is the ‘it’ shape of the season. Regardless of the style, circles will trump squares and rectangles this Spring.

Round Sunglasses are Replaced With Angular Shapes

Well one department where circles don’t reign is the sunglasses department. After seasons of round sunnies it is now time for the more angular shapes. Think square and rectangular frames as seen at Dior and Saint Laurent.

Mirror Sunglasses are Replaced with Tinted Shades

Last season we wore them tinted and mirrored. Well that ship has sailed, this season whether you are wearing wire or acetate frames, make sure they are tinted but not mirrored.

Raffia is Replacing Everything!

When in doubt wear raffia… Whether its a pair of earrings, a beach bag or even a head band raffia is the go-to texture of the season.
