We’re not going to lie, this is a pretty tricky season to buy for...
With the return of the 90s comes a lot of throwback fashion that we would rather forget (bike-shorts, we’re looking at you), but ultimately, you can pick and choose which nostalgic trends to add to your wardrobe this Spring. The hero pieces we’ll be adding to cart – think adorable smocking, pretty spots, wearable satin and flattering minis – are giving us all the right vibes for a truly fashionable new season, and the best part is you can find mini, midi and maxi silhouettes to suit all body shapes and moods. In the mood to shop? Your online shopping carts await…
1. A Shirt Dress
A wardrobe staple that suddenly has a place from work to weekend and everything in between. Just swap flats for a block heel when the opportunity arises.
SHOP: Zara shirt dress, $99
2. Colourful Checks
This dress ticks two Spring trends in one – checks and linen. An easy, throw-on dress that looks much more polished than its comfy silhouette suggests.
SHOP: Mango dress, $99.95
Think smocking is solely reserved for the little people in your life? Well think again.
SHOP: Ganni dress, $295.23
4. Polka Dots
It doesn’t get more flattering than an A-line silhouette with a high waistband, and the polka dot print keeps this skirt from being too formal.
SHOP: Zimmermann skirt, $450
5. Kitten Heels
Are kitten heels the modern mum’s shoe saviour? We think yes.
6. Satin Dress
If Spring were a dress, then this would be it. We’re all about the feminine silhouette and soft pastel hues.
7. Classic Denim Skirt
The new season of denim is decidedly uncomplicated and fuss-free, just like this simple yet perfect-in-every-way skirt.
8. Ribbed Tee
It doesn’t get more 90s sitcom than this, but that’s kind of the point. Wear with an A-line skirt and don’t look back….
SHOP: STAUD t-shirt, $165
9. Animal Print
A truly wearable version of a sometimes tricky trend.
SHOP: Whistles skirt, $177
10. Denim Shorts
After a small hiatus these guys are back with a vengeance. We love wearing mildly distressed styles with feminine blouses for a distinct point of difference.
SHOP: RAEY shorts, $133
11. A-Line Mini
It really doesn’t get more simple than this, but trust us when we say a simple A-line mini can pull together more looks than you ever thought possible.
SHOP: POSSE skirt, $139
12. A Beaded Bag
The sweetest addition to any Spring outfit, we can’t get enough of these embellished miniature handbags (that feel worlds away from oversized baby bags!).
SHOP: STAUD pouch, $235.70
