Spring is here and theres not a sign of black in sight. I know I’m kinda shocked myself, the colour black feels comfortable, it’s safe and you can’t really go wrong with it. For SS16, the monochromatic uniform of last summer has been long forgotten; replaced with a hue of pastel shades.
Taking style tips from the scandinavians, I have curated my current favourites for this post; to show you what I’ll be taking inspiration from in the upcoming months. Whether worn together or mixed with existing items in your wardrobe, this set of classic Spring items would make great additions to anyones wardrobe. So let’s get started..
First up are these simple tees from MHL. and Our legacy in mint and pink. I don’t think I have ever worn anything in either of these colours before, I’m not even sure if I could pull off a pink shirt but these shades are fairly washed out and not garish in anyway, so who knows. Even if it’s just for a hint of colour under the A.P.C Novak sweater, these tees are certain to brighten up your wardrobe.
Next up are the light wash jeans from Topman. I’m not opposed to blue jeans, my blue Nudie jeans are the comfiest pair that I own, I just go for a black pair 9 times out of 10. I’ve been searching for the perfect pair of ripped, washed blue jeans for a while now. Although these Topman ones don’t feature any rips, they are the closest I have found to the colour I am after and I’m sure I can achieve the look I’m after with a pair of scissor and some sand paper.
As for shoes, the Common Projects Chelsea Boots have featured on previous wishlists and I’m still pretty much in love with them, but at £315, I’m yet to take the plunge as I know I will probably ruin them on first wear!
I have also included pairs of ‘white’ Converse and Vans as they’re summer staples. Although described as white, they’re more of a vintage off white colour and will look great whether dressed up or down.
Last but not least I really want some slim fitting, cropped navy chinos for smarter occasions, they’re not pictured above but I already have this pair in black and they fit great!
What do you think of my Spring picks?
