Hello Spring, oh so good to see you! After a long and treacherous winter, the Spring Equinox of 2022 took place last week on the 20th March and thus new life, new beginnings and a new wardrobe are calling our name! If there’s one thing that can be relied on along with daffodils, Mini Eggs, lighter evenings and a classic Spring clean to add a pep into our step this season, it’s an easy-breezy new item of clothing that makes mornings of ‘what to wear’ a thing of the past. The simple but mighty, humble but quite honestly chef’s kiss addition in question? A linen-blend shirt.
It may seem basic, but let us not overlook the importance of your wardrobe fundamentals, the pieces you may not have realised you needed but now can’t imagine life without. Dopamine dressing and finding joy in a colourful ‘fit is this season’s MO, as we continue to seek joy in abundance after a draining 2 years, and shirts of every colour way and print are making their way into high street windows and the ASOS ‘new in’ page daily.
Today Team Zoella are styling an anticipated sellout H&M linen shirt, coming in at under £20 and available in 5 colourways, grab yourself a slice of this season’s easiest and comfiest trend, looking perfectly in place at brunch, as a casual beach coverup or layered for some extra warmth whilst we wait for the annual one week of heatwave weather- welcome to England!
I love a simple shirt to complete an outfit, it’s effortless style and even better when you can own the same shirt in different colours! I’ve gone for your standard white shirt as I am off on my holidays soon and I think a white shirt is a staple for a holiday wardrobe. I’ve styled it with an orange mini skirt from Mango which is super cute, I’m obsessed with orange this year! I’ve paired it with some strappy black sandals, a simple shoulder bag and some big sunglasses for an easy holiday look for evening or daytime!
In true Brit fashion, I’ve gone full-blown resort wear at the first sign of spring, teaming the beige linen shirt with tailored linen trousers and chunky sandals. I’d wear the shirt open with a plain tank top underneath for an easy-breezy spring outfit that feels relaxed but still considered. Finish off with a cap and boom: spring mode activated.
As your resident pink lover, I couldn’t help but choose this pretty pastel umber with a white stripe! Cargo trousers are EVERYWHERE at the moment and I think this pair from River Island are the perfect option for nodding to the trend without re-living a full 00’s fantasy. For a real spring/summer vibe I’ve picked woven style shoes from Dune (this sandal comes back every year!) And a clutch bag from & Other Stories in a similar texture. Finish the look with a gold necklace, I love the mixed metal from this Mango option.
I am LOVING this trend of coloured shirts at the moment- I feel like they’re in every shop I walk into and I love that this H&M offering has a colour way to work with every wardrobe. As Spring is here I’ve gone for a light blue shade which feels super fresh and perfect for the sunny days we’ve been having. I’ve added a playful tee underneath for an extra dose of colour, some classic New Balance trainers and a pair of basic straight leg jeans for an easy-breezy spring look you could throw on in a rush and know will look great!
