The return to normality sure is sweet, isn’t it? As we return to a life of socialising we’ve realised our wardrobes need a little TLC. Whilst we have our picnic and park style nailed, we’re struggling to dress for cold evenings, knowing what to wear on formal occasions (excuse us, it’s been a while), and how to dress for a heatwave – whilst still looking good, too. Worry not, we’ve got all the premium pieces you need in one place, and the best brands to curate the perfect spring wardrobe.
Serving style, even on brisk evenings
Whilst we’re relishing the opportunity to dine out with our friends of an evening, we have to admit it’s a little too cold for the outfits we originally planed for our post-lockdown resurgence. Fortunately, Mint Velvet is here to save the day with trans seasonal essentials that will have you looking great, and feeling cosy as well.
Outfits for special occasions
After a year’s hiatus, wedding season is back, with plenty of reasons to get (finally) dressed up upon us. Over the past few years, Phase Eight have cemented themselves as the place to shop for formal pieces. The best part – they’re exceptionally versatile, meaning you can dress your purchase up or down and seriously reduce that all-important cost per wear total.
For the sudden heatwave
If there’s one thing you can count on the UK for, it’s dramatic weather. With the possibility of a heatwave around the corner (at pretty much any point), it’s important to have high-summer fashion on retainer at any point. Our signature go-to? Why, Melissa Odabash of course.
With beautifully crafted pieces adorned in elegant prints, you can always count on Melissa Odabash for your spring wardrobe to craft show stopping styles that’ll have people turning heads (in all the best ways). Best of all? They’re lightweight and loose fitting, showcasing comfort as an equal priority to glamour.
For refined finishing touches
Charlotte Olympia has landed back on site at BrandAlley, and it’s just in time for the resurgence of ballet pumps and elegant flats in the style stakes. When it comes to handbags to complete your spring wardrobe – is there anyone who does it better than Coach. Perfectly polished and effortlessly pretty, they’re the ultimate extras.
