After a long winter inside, it’s strange to think that we’re going to be taking the first steps towards summer socialising this month. Of course, the reopening of pub gardens and the ability to have group picnics doesn’t change anything in regards to our favourite accessory (a mask) but the prospect of hanging out with our friends is turning our thoughts towards outfit planning – namely, wearing proper clothes again.
If you’ve spent the majority of your essential walks and trips to the supermarket in the same pair of jeans and an old jumper over the last few months, the idea of having an occasion to 'dress up' for is likely pretty exciting. The weather isn’t exactly balmy just yet but the mere sight of blossom on the trees has us turning our attention towards some sunny springtime looks, with broderie anglaise dresses, double denim and sleek trench coats all making an appearance on our April agenda.
This influx of new styles has us planning our spring cleaning weekend already, with wardrobe clear-outs top of the list. Whether you're planning to upload some old favourites to your resale app of choice or donate clothing to charity shops once retail begins to open, there's plenty to be done to make room for a new-season purchase or two.
