Outfits for spring: Tops

Some of the key trends this spring when it comes to tops are oversized menswear inspired shirts, tie-dye, bold graphic patterns, and florals.

A top can be an easy way to update your closet – as you can simply wear with your jeans to look instantly on-trend. If you opt for the oversized look, think about keeping the rest of your outfit in balance. You could wear with your leggings or skinny jeans, for example.

Recreate her outfit with this similar shirt, wide leg pants, pumps, handbag, necklace and bracelets.

coat and jackets

Designers for spring put a lot of emphasis on the coat – perhaps because so much of the world has been in “lockdown” over the past year and everyone is looking forward to getting out and about again.

Choose a coat in a statement color or with bold patterns. Or, of couse, you could choose classic outerwear such as a neutral blazer.
