Hey spring, you there? To kick off the rise of temperatures and blooming of flowers around the city, we’ve partnered with mytheresa.com to bring you the key styling tips for SS18. From updating your classic outerwear to accessorizing with ease, here are the six steps to transition into the new season in style.
Go Back to Basics With the Right Denim Jacket
With the rising popularity of sportswear, a blue jean jacket has become the new wardrobe staple on the scene. Take your pick from Balenciaga’s oversized style or Unravel Project’s acid-washed 80’s inspired shape – complete with shoulder pads. You can’t go wrong with a classic, and a true blue mixes seamlessly with any ensemble.
Add on Your Favorite New Accessory, The Neck-Tie
The simplest styling trick for Spring is tying on your favorite scarf. Take a colorful kerchief or a large silky square and fold it into a neck tie – giving your décolletage the attention it deserves. We love vivid options that pack a maximum punch, like this cactus print from Dolce & Gabbana or Gucci’s logo-emblazoned style. This easy step ties together your look.
The Easiest Update is a Pop of Color with Retro Sunglasses
Hands down, this is the sunglass style we’re seeing everywhere. From the street style set to our favorite celebrities, the retro-meets-90s-minimalist trend is universally flattering and equally chic. Adam Selman x Le Specs created our perfect pair in punchy, lipstick red. The Lolita inspired shades will add an instant pop of color to even the drabbest of days.
Show Off Your New Personal ‘It’ Bag
The new designer name on everyone’s lips? Danse Lente, meaning slow-dance in French. Their architectural styles made of slick leather in neutral shades compliment any springtime look with ease. The best part? These statement bags won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Emulate your favorite street style looks for a fraction of the designer price. Grab yours before it’s gone!
SS18 is all About the Straight Skinny
The mom jean, the girlfriend, the relaxed-fit – whatever you want to call it – the straight skinny is the jean you need now. Sitting somewhere between a skinny and a boyfriend cut, this style is figure flattering and comfortable, the best of both worlds. Tapered at the ankle, the straight skinny is extremely versatile, pairing easily with heels, flats, or an ankle boot. This pair from The Row feels laid-back, but still polished (which is your Spring attitude, to a T)!
A Timeless Trench: Update Your Old Favorite
Something old, something new…so the saying goes. Thanks to Christopher Bailey’s genius at Burberry, the classic British staple has been given a new a lease on life. Call it the chicest all-weather hero this season, the trench will take you from April showers to May flowers. For a fresh feeling, throw it on over your jean jacket, left tied back and open. The look has editor-cum-street style star written all over it.
