Springing into a Wardrobe Make Over!






Well, Hello there!

Its officially spring and in the true spirit of spring and spring cleaning and all the things bright and merry, we are so totally ‘springing into action’ with a wardrobe make over!

Tag it telepathy or brute intergalactic  forces from another dimension( I might have watched Interstellar an obnoxiously high number of times! ), I can most certainly hear your wardrobe spirits saying pretty please ! So Read on sista!

From flabbergasting-ly awesome bikers to the mighty come back of the 1940’s asymmetric one shoulder we’ve got It all covered and as always we are getting to the nitty gritty of the matter and starting at some good old wardrobe staples!

The WARDROBE Essentials!
Leather Jacket - Zara  
Cashmere Sweater - Boden
Silk Scarf - Mango
Basic T's -Uniqlo
Loafers- Office
Blazer-Zara
Denims - Mango Lighter boy friendDarker Denim 

The one and only Biker Jacket
Now, Arnie’s infamous ‘I’ll be back’ dialogue, doting an ‘all black look’ was a style cult statement right there   or my all-time favourite Maverick in Top Gun with  his ultra-swag leather jacket with military patches, there is much to be learned from historic Hollywood times and an investment in a leather jacket will do you much wardrobe wonders!



A Blazer??
Yes, the smirk, I see it ;) I did warn you about the telepathic forces at play!
If I took any cue at all, from recent dramatical political times, it had to be the suave pant suits worn by US Presidential candidate, Hilary Clinton.  It certainly was the metaphorical power dressing at its best, and tapping into, ‘enclothed cognition’ as called by Dr Adam Galinsky encompasses the mighty influence of clothing on the wearer, Ms Clinton successfully captured the fancy of many across the world. And If pant suits are a bit much by your wardrobe standards, a blazer for the wardrobe will be the step in the right direction to embrace enclothed cognition and to tap into that flamboyant, at times lost, self-confidence .I rest my case.



Basic t’s
Now let’s face it, an off shoulder number for the milk-run, as fashionably sassy as it sounds, is only a distant dream! So flood up your wardrobe with some quintessential t’s and you’ll be forever grateful!


Cashmere Sweater
Like any other real life observations, wardrobe goals are an absolute must! I am off to save for my Cashmere Sweater, I’ll get there some day, Whilst I dream away my Ralph Lauren light and lofty sweaters in prettiest pastel shades, a thrifty h&m knock off might do the trick for now!



Denims –Duh!
Finding a well fitted denim is like picking the right partner.  You most certainly have to wade your way through the stragglers, the nonconformists, mildly cuckoo- ones out there and in the end you just find the right person-who likes you for your crazy and live happily ever after or something like that! SO yes, take your time to know your denim- it’s a life choice
After all;)

Loafers!
Effortlessly chic ! Just slip into those and Wa-lah  be it smart work wear or smart casuals, I can think of more than 5 effective use of loafers in your life, a good wardrobe choice is all about optimization!
  
Some Spring Inspo
Now since Makeover is the theme of the day, we couldn’t do without a round of Spring Inspiration! If you haven’t taken the shimmer skirts plunge, now is certainly the time!


And Ladies,this season celebrates the comeback of PINK! WUHooo! Pastels, Fuschia,Magenta – it’s an absolute Pink immersion and in all honesty, there is no other colour that can quite exude elegance and effortless fun as pink does , So a big FAT YES to PINK this season! And as we slowly make our way to sunnier, (well its relative), let’s make some way for some strappy punk shoes and Mules maybe?
