Guest Post / Spring Style: Essential Must-Have's

Hi everyone, so this week I have something a little different for you, a guest post!  This is something I've been wanting to do on my blog for a while now, so after being approached a couple of weeks ago by Peter Minkoff who is a fashion stylist and blogger from Australia, I thought it would be a great idea.  So for this post, Peter tells us all the essential pieces we'll be needing for perfect style this coming Spring, I'm in love with the suede skirt and cream lace dress already!  So if you fancy updating your wardrobe with the latest trends, keep on reading :-)

"Spring is already knocking on our doors, and it is about time to start thinking about the unavoidable spring cleaning. We are of course not referring to the dark corners of our homes, but the suspicious dated corners of our wardrobes. Every spring, the drill is the same: out with the old and in with the new! Why would it be any different this year? There are some essentials you should acquire as soon as possible, in order to stay on the top of your fashion game. To do that, you will need to know what is brewing on the fashion horizon and what will be the must-haves of the season?

Lace Blouse/Dress
See through lace will be all the rage this spring, as we had the chance to see on various runways. Keep up with the trends and get yourself one or two sheer blouses or dresses. Just remember that in this case, you should wear bikini underthings. You can combine your lace dress with an unique denim jacket, oversize coat or vest. 

Low Rise Trousers
Recently we have seen the affinity for high-rise trousers, a trend brought to us by ‘70s nostalgia. Now the pendulum is swinging the other way, and this spring everyone will be wearing a ‘90s-like low rise trousers. That is, if you trust renowned designers such as Rosie Assoulin, Tibi and Derek Lam. So, fill your wardrobe with a pair of wide leg jeans, board shorts, etc.

Suede Pieces
Speaking of the fashion pack’s love affair with the ‘70s... Suede is known for being one of the favourite fabrics of the hippie movement, but it is in fact, so much more. The fabric itself is very flattering and figure embracing, so the pieces made of it are always sexy and feminine. Olivier Rousteing, Alberta Ferretti, Jonathan Saunders and other designers are recommending suede shorts, dresses, skirts and shoes, so if you will not listen to us, than take your advice from them. 

Net Pieces
Spring has got us all caught in designers’ net. Proenza Schouler, Tome, Dion Lee, Alexander Wang, Marchesa and many other names from the fashion world showed us how amazing it can look when a net is turned to dress, t-shirt or a blouse. These are great pieces not only for spring, but also for the upcoming summer, when they can be ideal for beach. Think of that ahead, because this is the best time for swimwear sale

White Button down Shirt
We know what you are thinking how can this be a new trend when it is here for ages? Well, ladies white shirt is getting a makeover. The simple oxford classic will challenge the way how you wear your shirts, this spring. Zac Posen, Monse, Delpozo and others vamped up the appearance of classic shirt, by turning it into a dress, buttoning it down differently, etc.

Stylish Flats
Yes, heels are great, but can you really endure an entire day in them or a whole night dancing? Not exactly. Until recently, flats were considered unstylish and too casual to wear to some formal events, but designers such as Alexander Wang, Edun and Victoria Beckham, realize that women should be granted the privilege of wearing comfy shoes while still looking breathtaking. 

The Half-Moon Bag
Now, let us move on to woman’s number two best friend her bag. Last year we had the chance to see the rise of bucket bag. This season half-moon bags are taking over the fashion world by storm. It is sufficient to say that Michael Kors is one of the main names pushing the half-moon bag on the scene. Other names of the game are Victoria Beckham and Mansur Gavriel. Wishing you had one of those babies already?

No time to wait. Update your spring style with these essentials and turn the world into your runway."
