The world of fashion is constantly in flux; something that is in vogue one year is unlikely to be so well loved the next. However, there’s a few things in fashion that are just timeless. So, as you begin assembling your Spring wardrobe, it’s worth thinking about the following trends to make sure you’re looking and feeling great all the way through to summer. Follow these basic steps, and your Spring/Summer wardrobe will be brilliant in no time.
Why stick to block colour when you can pick clothes with great patterns? And what better time to show off your bold fashion sense than the Spring and Summer? Floral prints and patterns are in vogue at the moment, as are marbled patterns. What better way to celebrate the flowers sprouting back up than to wear a few of them on your hijab or dress? If flowers aren’t your thing though, there’s a whole world of patterned modestwear out there for you to try. If you’re looking for some inspiration, take a look here.
Shades of summer
As the weather starts to brighten, and the days start to get warmer, it’s time for your wardrobe to get lighter. Lighter in shade, that is. If you don’t have any already, you’ll be glad to know that there’s plenty of choices of colours out there, so you can pick what suits you best. That’s probably the best thing about pastel colours; they’re versatile enough for you to express yourself, without being too overbearing or loud. Depending on the fabric you choose, pastel colours will be suitable for a wide array of occasions too. Whether you’re looking for something for work, something for leisure, or something for everyday use, pastel colours are a safe bet.
Just because the sun is out doesn’t mean you get to stop going to work, unfortunately! Because of this, you need to make sure you’ve got smart clothing in your wardrobe that looks the part in a professional environment. Smart tops and blouses in pale or pastel colours are exactly what you need, and many are available in a fabric that will be suitable in the summer months. To this end, make sure to buy items that are thin and airy enough to be comfortable when the temperatures really hit their peak.
Spring and summer materials
If you only take one thing away from this article, make sure it’s this; material thickness is very important. Make sure your wardrobe has a variance of a few different material thicknesses, the thickest for winter and the thinnest for the summer heatwave. Being lumbered with thick clothing in the summer months can be quite uncomfortable, and you’re never going to look and feel your best when you feel uncomfortable. Linen based materials are a great choice for the hotter months, and will provide some respite from the heat!
