This is actually my very personal wish list ‒ you know how it is, you come across certain pieces and it just feels like this is you. I like this year’s spring, and not just because it’s quite proper. It makes sure there is a sophisticated elegance, suitable for work, spending quality time with your friends and lifting your spirits, which is always great. The colours alone put you in a good mood, which is very dear to me. I am completely in love with these pieces at the moment, and couldn’t be happier to share them with you.
New ballet flats
I still like them, even though almost every man hates them; they’re a combination of comfort and style and the new models have a rather pointy tip and come in vivid colours. I adore my electric blue ones, but I still want some other wild colours as well, such as fuchsia, golden with glitter or green.
Pink cropped pants
I already have pink jeans in my closet, but I’m still waiting for the cropped pants to arrive. I like them because they remind me of Jackie O., the ultimate elegance icon. I would wear them with a navy T-shirt or a white blouse, but I wouldn’t match all pink from head to toe, I prefer to break up the whole with a contrasting pattern.
Pleated powder skirt
I am quite fond of this colour, and the same goes for pleats, which are still trendy. It has to be of the right length, which means midi, because it looks the best. I like this neutral tone, because it goes well with any colour and I believe it’s 100 % wearable. I would wear sandals with a very high heel, a small handbag and, of course, sunglasses.
A good piece of big jewellery
Statement necklaces are still very in trend and this time around there are many flowers, although I’m not entirely sure I would choose the latter. I would definitely opt for something big and noticeable, it could be earrings or rings. I am a fan of colours, because they make even a basic white T-shirt look lively, and that is the allure of this type of jewellery.
All white everything
Lately, there have been so many white sets, even suits, that I quickly became hooked. I like that it’s fresh and always seems new, summery and elegant, and it doesn’t take much to be simply flawless. There is never enough white, and cropped pants are the piece I want the most.
It’s plaid, but it’s not sporty like you see in the winter on flannel shirts that came out of men’s wardrobes. The dark blue and white pattern is so French, my mind goes to Cannes or Nice, and I’m immediately content. In short, Vichy is what we really need to add to dots and stripes.
Classic black and white
This is where we get to experiment, because there are so many sets out there. Black and white are so close to each other they cannot do without one another. I enjoy the air of timeless wardrobe, because while fashion keeps changing, this style is completely unchanged. I’d wear black shantung silk trousers and a white Victorian lace and tulle blouse.
We have almost completely forgotten about it, but it’s back. I know, it’s been seen before, but everything comes back, plus it’s a set I have always been fond of. I like how wearable it is, simply beautiful, yet special at the same time, transcending the limitations of an ordinary sweater. A short sleeve top is ideal for spring or early autumn days, when it isn’t hot nor cold, but somewhere in between.
Again, reminiscent of the past, it made me remember the movie Grease, in which Olivia Newton John wore them and they were gorgeous! A light coloured sweater, light as a feather in pastels (mint and pink are top choices), styled with jeans or summer pants and nice sneakers.
We don’t go anywhere without it, and it’s a good thing to have several different blazers in our closet. They can be similar in cut (I like the longer ones), but not in colour. There are other tones besides the classical black, powder and dark blue, but do avoid wearing same colour pants. Even though matchy-matchy is trending (can’t help but remember the Prada runway …), I believe it’s better to break up the whole ‒ it just looks a bit younger and fresher.
