Spring Trends with Kaleidoscope | Blogger Expert
This month in my role as Blogger Expert with Kaleidoscope, I am testing out the spring trends. I know it’s not quite warm enough yet but I am getting ready for those clocks springing forward and for longer days and a glimpse of sunshine.
I’m currently working on transitioning my wardrobe through to spring. Here are a few of my spring time transition tips;
- It’s time to ditch the big winter coats. For spring I like to don a blazer with the sleeves rolled up and I layer up.
- The temperature is always fluctuating so layers are the way to go. I will ditch the winter boots and start embracing colour flats to wear with my bistro crop trousers.
- Print is a great way to liven up the wardrobe for spring
I’m embracing the Spring Trends with Kaleidoscope in my outfit selection this month.
Bright floral print kimono
This is a little out of my comfort zone. I love print but I’m not a big floral kinda girl. But the kimono can be great at aiding the transition through spring with layering. It’s an alternative to a jacket and can really add depth to your outfit. Loose layers are the way to lighten the look for spring. I think this will be a mainstay in my wardrobe this season teamed with simple, plain teeshirts and vest tops; to allow the colours to pop on their own.
Bright Floral Print Kimono, Kaleidoscope £35
A key trend this season. Difficult for some body types but I wanted to road test them out. I love wearing trousers to the office and think these will be great for SS15. Plus I have to say, the elasticated waist at the back of the trousers allows for a great fit. It also means when the weather gets a bit warmer and my body temperature rises a little (our office is very warm!) I will still be comfortable in the trousers as the day wears on. This style is new to me. I’m more of a cigarette, bistro crop kinda girl. I’m not sure they suit my body shape fully but they are comfy!

Embellished leaf top
This is all about the blue. A pale blue is perfect for the spring palette. Pastels are still in and with a touch of embellishment adding a depth and texture; giving a strength to spring. Not normally a style I would go for but I love the colour and the sheerness of the upper part of the shell top.

Spring/Summer 15 Trends
Here’s my tips on what is hot for the new fashion season.
- Monochrome is still key. Mixing white into my wardrobe is a new thing for me this season (stain remover is at hand!).
- White with blue is new for SS15, a great way to smarten up your work wardrobe and make a statement.
- Gingham is in. I’m keen to try a gingham print dress. I just need to find the right one so its more “on Trend”, less “grannies tablecloth”!
