The idea of spring capsule wardrobe essentials is a topic which is quite subjective. Some people define it as being made up of a select few pieces, such as a white t-shirt or black cigarette pants, which are seasonless and always have a place in your wardrobe. But others use the definition in order to include trend-driven items of clothing and accessories which suddenly feel like they are everywhere.
This spring, there are some fashion items which fit in perfectly with other pieces and some which are individual and should be paired with plainer items. Whether you are ready for spring or not, there are some glamorous pieces and trends which are sure to be everywhere this spring, so it’s time to add some glamour to your spring capsule wardrobe.
Printed midi dresses have recently emerged as the number one dress trend in recent months, thanks to the latest catwalk shows. It is the perfect item of clothing to add to your spring capsule wardrobe, as it can be used to transition between the cool winter weather and warmer spring days. Whether you’re wearing one to work or as part of your casual weekend wardrobe, one or two will fit into your wardrobe perfectly.
No matter whether you love or loathe this trend, the fashion-forward are continuing to wear the athleisure trend for as long as they can. Oversized hoodies are another huge feature in this spring’s trends, so if that makes being cosy and warm on those cooler days fashionable, then everyone should back this spring wardrobe trend.
Polka-dots were a huge style trend last spring/summer and they’re set to be bigger and bolder this season. They’re the perfect addition to a spring capsule wardrobe, as they can be dressed up and down, no matter how you wear them. From culottes to blouses, dresses to headbands, they can be seen almost everywhere this spring, so get ready to rock some polka-dots.
What better way to brighten up a plain outfit than with a pair of statement earrings? Gold is a much-loved colour this spring as it can transform any look instantaneously, but crawler and ear climber earrings are also set to be huge thanks to their stylish designs and colours. The more quirky the design, the better, especially when wearing with other pieces from your spring capsule wardrobe.
Another look which featured heavily on the SS18 catwalks last year, the straw bag is back and is bigger and better than ever this spring. Whether you go for an over the shoulder shopper style or a small cross body bag, no matter how you style it you’ll be bang on style. One thing to be aware of is to ensure that the weave is smaller than the items you put in it - no one wants to lose their favourite lipstick!
