Spring Styling | How To Get Creative With Your Wardrobe

Styling Gingham Check Trousers For Spring
Let's face it, here in the UK over the past week we were spoilt rotten with the weather!  Sunshine, warmth and smiles all round.  And then it disappeared.  But hey, nothing stays the same forever, right?  Thankfully, it will no doubt return soon and see us all strip down once more to bask in the sun, but for the time being... we need to get creative.  Creative with the ways we embrace the season, creative with lifting our moods on cloudier days and above all else, creative with our wardrobes!  I've got so much love for transitional styling, because it allows us to mix seasonal pieces and get away with more unusual combinations.  Frilly dresses paired with biker boots, roll neck jumpers layered underneath linen pinafore dresses and my personal favourite, denim jackets paired with printed trousers and sandals.

How to Style 2018 Minaudière Trend
Nordgreen pink and rose gold infinity watch blog review
Ah, denim jackets.  The saviours of Springtime wardrobes.  I never thought I'd be one to wear such a bold shade of pink, but the colour has absolutely grown on me over these past few weeks.  It's a major colour this season and sure, it's pretty easy to find right now as well.  Most collections can be found with at least a handful of pieces washed in the colour!  Like I mentioned earlier, a fave go-to of mine right now is pairing denim jackets with patterned trousers.  The trick is to pick one of them to be in a bright colour.  Bright jacket vs. dark printed trousers.  Colourful printed trousers vs. plain jacket.  You get the gist.  Another fabulous way of crossing over seasonal styling is to pair ruffled, ethereal dresses with biker boots or trainers, and fierce accessories.  The contrast can be pure magic.  Speaking of accessories, I've pretty much fallen in love with the minaudière trend; elaborate, flamboyant, luxurious and chic.  What's not to like?!
How To get Creative With Your Spring Wardrobe
Another accessory I'm attached to right now is this Infinity Watch from Nordgreen, a new Scandinavian brand championing minimal design and pure functionality.  I chose a blush strap to help it become a versatile piece in my spring/summer wardrobe.  For once a brand has included many holes in the strap to accommodate varying wrist sizes - so definitely a brand to look at if you're also struggling to find well-fitting watches!  Plus, the icing on this blush-and-rose-gold cake is the inter-changeable strap design.  I also have a black leather strap ready and waiting for when I want to switch things up again.  Perfect!

So, remember I enjoyed afternoon tea with Pandora Jewellery last month at The Ritz?  Well, the bracelet shown in this post is the gorgeous gift that was nestled inside the secret gift bag!  The Moments Silver Sliding Bracelet has been paired with the Promise of Spring Charm.  A gorgeous duo that you'll no doubt see plenty more of within outfits here on the blog this season!  If you like the style but fancy doing a little more browsing first, be sure to take a peek at their other silver bracelets.

This really is a lovely time of year and even more so when it comes to our wardrobes.  Of course I'm excited for summer (hello to the other summer babies reading this!), but these temperamental months can be a fun opportunity to get creative with our wardrobes in the meantime.  I can't wait to read your thoughts on this look; are you a fan of patterned trousers?  How do you feel about pink denim - love, or hate?  Let me know in the comments below!

  5. It was like summer here for the last 8 days, so hot that it didn't even cool off at night. But today we had clouds and rain, so i think it will get back to a more seasonal appropriate weather soon.

  11. I LOVE this outfit! The combination of the pink jacket and gingham trousers is a win! And that bag definitely just went into my shopping bag (oopsie!) I love how you matched your nails, jacket, and watch (also a love) all in pink! Super cute ;) And I totally know what you mean about the weather. Only Saturday did the weather here in NY actually feel like spring!

  12. I love pink, so when I hear the phrase 'pink denim', I think to myself- Why not? That pink denim jacket is very cute. You know as they say- pretty in pink. I do like how you styled it with those pattered pants. The contrast between the pink jacket and the monochrome (black and white) print of the pants is so lovely. All in all, it's such a beautiful spring styling.


    Great outfit details as well. The Nordgreen watch is gorgeous. The simplicity of its design it very appealing. The Pandora bracelet looks nice as well.

    I'm a big fan of transitional styling. It gives us a chance to get really playful with layers. Spring (and perhaps early Autumn) is the only time we can wear boots with bare legs, pair them with shorts/mini skirt and don't worry about getting a cold. We can wear sweaters with dresses, dressed up items with casual ones...We can wear sandals with jeans and not worry about being too hot....the opportunities are endless. Spring rocks!

  14. Ahhhh you always have the best outfits. I love that jacket! We definitely got tricked with a few days of sunny weather. Apparently, it's SNOW for tomorrow *eye roll*. I can't wait until summer, you've gotta give us some great sundresses when it rolls around!

  30. I love the pink denim jacket! I often think I need to update my current denim jacket, and I'd like to try get a different coloured one, but haven't found the perfect one yet. I definitely do want to add more printed pants to my wardrobe this winter though! :)

    Hope you are having a nice week so far! It's a good one for me as we have a day off here and I'm planning to relax a little, as much as the kids allow, ha! :)

  41. The weather in the UK sounds so similar to what we've been experiencing in NYC. I go back and forth with whether I can finally pack away my coats. Anyway you're looking fabulous as usual Gabrielle! The transition seasons really do offer so much possibility for freshening up our looks and we should just have fun with it :)

  50. Ooh, I bought those same gingham trousers from Zara and absolutely love them! I’d been keeping my eye out for a pair for years and never really found the ones that were right, but the Zara ones are perfect! They have the right amount of stretch and come up to the right height and hold everything in without being uncomfortable either. Basically they’re perfect – clearly great minds think alike!
