Ice Cream Colours: Spring / Summer 2018

It is almost April and Easter, and I don't know about you, but this year has really seemed to have flown over so far! It feels like only yesterday that we were cheering in the New Year and in a sudden flash, here we are, almost four months into 2018 and summer so close you can almost smell the coconut scented sun cream in the air! With that in mind, I wanted to shine the spotlight upon a statement piece which will be most certainly be featuring in my spring / summer wardrobe and jetting off as part of my capsule wardrobe come the summer holiday season in a month or two's time! Spring is the perfect time to cast of the dark colours and reinvent your wardrobe with some new vibrant, happy pastel colours. This season, the gelato tones are making a come back and I for one am so pleased about this as I personally love wearing soft shades that can mix and be easily co-ordinated with loads of other garments, especially when you're on holiday as lugging twenty completely different outfits halfway across the globe really isn't space or cost efficient if you're requiring extra luggage weight for your suitcase full of different shoes! I recently purchased a top from Hollister which is exactly what I need come the summer. It is a cold shoulder top in thin pastel duck egg blue and crisp white vertical stripes and it has a-mazing sleeves! If you recently saw my blog post featuring this Zara jumper which I am the proud owner of, then you will already know that I love a good unusual sleeve, it completely reinvents the way a garment looks in my opinion.

Whilst I was trying this top on, I knew it would be perfect on either those warm evenings abroad where you want a cover up but it is still warm enough to wear shorts and a top. I also thought it would be perfect for days where you go exploring the cultural parts of your holiday destination and would look rather chic with a wide brimmed sun hat. That's my outfit vision! I love that the sleeves are a statement and 'floaty' fabric always looks really nice when it is caught in a light summer's breeze too! Paired with white denim shorts and golden sandals, it's a completed look that is effortlessly stylish. 

Dressing against the norm can make people perceive you as more fun-loving, eccentric and more creatively minded. Charles Tyrwhitt have a large selection of men's shirts and other classy and decorative accessories from socks to ties that can add a flash of pattern and colour to really enhance a traditional suit for either the work place or a special event such as a spring wedding or anniversary celebration or even a more relaxed gathering with friends, where you want your fashion to make a positive statement and reflect the fun side to you personality. For the spring / summer 18 season, a light pastel toned shirt or one with an ornate floral design is eye-catching and can really lift a look from being plain to really fashionable and more uniquely on trend for the current season. The Charles Tyrwhitt range is smart and sophisticated, so a signature shirt from their collection would make a fabulous and well considered gift as well.

Have you started your new season wardrobe or holiday shopping yet? (It's a great way of getting in the mood for holidays I think!) What are some of our personal favourite transitional pieces that work well for both the spring and summer months and which pastel tones are you loving? Let me know! Bilgi   x
