Here at The O&P we are very excited to welcome spring - sunny days, warmer weather, and the promise of enjoying an al fresco lunch with our girlfriends at a restaurant is in sight. Finally! Now we are in exactly the same boat as you - for the past few months we have practically lived in cosy loungewear and are now starting to think it's time to get the jeans out of hibernation - along with the rest of our 'outside world appropriate' clothes! And our wardrobe needs a little refresh - we're thinking bright colours, fun patterns, clothing we can wear in many different outfits. We have put together a spring must have fashion items list from our latest collection to inspire you to do the same - let's step into spring with plenty of style (as well as comfort!).
This beautiful pink leopard print jumper from Sugarhill Brighton is the perfect colour for spring/summer! Pure cotton ensures its longevity and softness, while the classic details like ribbed cuffs and hem and round neck make it a wardrobe staple. Looks awesome with jeans & trainers for a casual look, or you can pair it with a pleated skirt and ankle boots to enjoy lunch with friends in a pub garden once they reopen!
At the O&P we love it when you can create multiple looks with a key wardrobe staple and this shirt is a definitely one for your capsule wardrobe! Wearable all year round, the Catrina cream shirt from Sugarhill Brighton features a hand-drawn Rainbow Lightning print in candy tones. In addition to a hidden functional button front, the Catrina comes complete with a removable neck tie, giving it an optional 70s vibe which is very in! Retro, relaxed and so easy to wear with jeans, a pleated skirt, or wide legged trousers.
One of our spring/summer favourites here at The O&P - this Reva midi shirt dress is simply fabulous! The bright giraffe print adds a modern twist to a classic shirt dress shape. The Reva shape is our new go-to, the bracelet length sleeves, button front, pockets, and longer length make this the perfect day dress. Wear with trainers and a leather jacket for casual cool; pair with sandals and oversized sunglasses to welcome the sunny days. The beauty of this dress is it's wonderful pattern which means you can get away wearing either minimal jewellery to let the dress to all the talking, or team it with statement necklaces, bracelets and rings for eye-catching glam!
A spring wardrobe essential is a lightweight, long pleated skirt with elasticated waist - you can wear it with virtually anything. This pleated skirt from Sarta is made in Italy and is so versatile - perfect for the school run, popping to the shops, casual lunch with the girls or a cracking evening out! Our favourite ways to style this skirt are with a pair of snazzy trainers, plain white t-shirt, statement necklace and a leather jacket; or glam heels, printed shirt, and statement glitzy jewellery.
We couldn't let a spring edit go by without adding a pop of loud colour and our pick is this gorgeous yellow knot twist headband from Caroline Gardner. Ochre yellow cotton look material twisted into a stylish hairband makes it THE accessory of the season. This will look perfect paired with any of the items from the above edit, or if you're more into darker colours - yellow and black look wonderful together. So easy to wear - this headband will be your best friend on days when your hair is not your best friend!
