Yes. It’s official. If you live on the beautiful island of Ibiza you can feel it already, spring is here and as the islanders say – the spring in Ibiza looks a lot like summer!
After the beautiful Almond blossoms it’s like if the islands comes back to life – the days are getting longer, morning temperatures get higher and people start to bid farewell to their winter clothes – bye bye dark coats and winter boots, hello bright colours & sheer fabrics!
If you live in a beach town or on an island, you can see people start enjoying the beach life again – getting tan, having lunch at the seaside. If you live in the city, you probably can’t stop dreaming about and planning your next spring getaway.
So how do you prepare your wardrobe for this? When it comes to preparing your wardrobe for spring and summer, it helps to keep in mind what pieces you may want to wear in the near future and what clothes instead you can do without for the next six months.
As such, today we’ve come up with a fail-proof guide to knowing exactly what those items (in both categories) are. Of course, we have some style tips involving kaftans too.
STORE: coat and down jacket. KEEP OUT: leather jacket, the timeless trench and the classic denim jacket.
While storing away jackets after winter sounds like a no-brainer and space-saving idea, we recommend to keep out certain styles such as jeans and leather, to throw over spring outfits for an eye-catching added layer.
STORE. Winter accessories. KEEP OUT: Soft and colourful scarves.
It’s time to say goodbye to gloves, woolly hat and winter scarfs, instead we recommend to accessorise your look with soft and colourful scarves. Wrap it loosely and go with it day and night matched with any of your outfit.
STORE: Thermals and long sleeves t-shirts KEEP OUT: Kaftans and sheer t-shirts.
Unlike overly warm thermals, your light kaftans will serve you (and your outfits) quite well in spring, whether you layer them or wear them alone with leggings. If you opt for a casual look you can go with a mini kaftan, if you are seeking an elegant one, you can pick one of our beautiful long kaftans. To find out how to style them you can have a look at our previous post “Simplicity and versatility for your wardrobe”.
STORE: thick jeans KEEP OUT: Leggings.
I know what you’re thinking: ‘as if you can’t wear jeans in spring too?’… However, when the weather starts to get very hot, you don’t want to be in tight jeans. Leggings, though, are more versatile and fresh, so keep those within reach in any season.
STORE: Heavy boots, KEEP OUT: Suede boots.
When you’re putting away your winter footwear, keep the suede boots out for spring. They will look perfect styled with dresses, skirts and even shorts.
