Oh spring – every year you tempt us with a veritable bounty of fresh fashion offerings, and every year we are forced to wait (and wait… AND WAIT..!) until it’s practically summer before we can partake. The good news is that spring is a vegan fashion lover’s dream. Wool-free knits, cotton dresses and denim jackets – there’s no better time to shop if you’re on the lookout for animal-friendly clothing. The bad news? It’s not quite summer yet. Here’s our guide to the little extras that take your wardrobe from snow days to spring chic.
Go for a versatile dress
The right dress is the perfect transitional piece – paired with tights, it can help you stay toasty while looking spring-ready. Layered underneath a light jacket and accessorised with sleek boots, it provides the ideal mix of laid-back boho and feminine elegance. Our new-season favourites: the Perla Dress from Reformation (1) and the Stormy dress by Faircloth & Supply at One of a Kind (2).
Top off with a denim number
For those days when spring is in the air, toss an carefree denim jacket over your all-weather dress to add an air of nonchalance. Denim is one of the season’s biggest trends and this Free People piece (3) adds a rock edge thanks to its buckled detailing.
Cover your feet
The days where socks with sandals were considered a fashion faux-pas are long gone. Can’t wait to premiére your new sandals? Want to wear your most delicate heels with a skirt but don’t want to get frost bite? No worries – just pair them with socks! From your most whimsical to the most boring of basics, ankles to knees – find the right pair that sets off your shoes. We love the Zoe sandals from Beyond Skin (7) and the Arden Wohl x CDC Eastlake Stilettos from Cri de Coeur (4).
Choose a pair of eco sunnies
Welcome back, sunglasses. How we have missed you. This season, see the world through rosy shades with SOLO’s Maverick pair (5). Crafted from metal and recycled bamboo, this handmade pair is prescription-friendly and spring-perfect.
Carry a cover-up in an oversized bag
When you’re dying to break out that new dress but aren’t quite ready to go bare, bring an extra layer in your bag. A thin cardi to throw on if you get chilly is a versatile solution – stash yours in this spacious Jill Milan Wianno tote (6), which is also a great way to introduce a new-season colour palette into your wardrobe.
