Welcome to Style Guide.
For the first instalment of this video series, style influencer Nadia Baker takes us through her picks for a spring wardrobe refresh, with looks primed for warmer weather and a season of celebrations.
Build up from the bare essentials
Enhance your feminine form with subtly sculpting undergarments. Look to bras with wide straps and adjustable hook and eye fastenings to offer great support for all bust sizes, and high-waisted briefs that won’t cut into skin. Fill your drawer with Fantasie’s nude wireless bra and full brief to wear underneath warm-weather whites, or Triumph’s fashion-meets-function co-ord in deep maroon and lace.
Find your dream linen dress
No spring wardrobe is complete without a breezy, wear-anywhere dress. Commonry’s geo print midi-dress in 100 per cent linen, for ultimate warm-weather breathability. For a long-lunch ensemble, add a belt to free-flowing styles like this, and team with vibrant sandals. Or, when the occasion calls for weekend comfort, trade heels for white sneakers and grab a holds-everything tote.
Opt for a great pair of jeans
A well-fitting pair of jeans is an essential component to any capsule wardrobe.
For comfortable, size-inclusive staples, we’re coveting Good American. Nadia balances this season’s most sought-after cut, the high-waisted bootleg, with a seamless square-necked bodysuit. Add accents of gold jewellery and a colourful heel for easy elevation.
Play around with 90s nostalgia
Trends of decades past reign supreme this spring, with baggy dad-style jeans by Levi’s on our denim radar. Nadia’s tip? Make trends your own by styling them however feels most comfortable to you. Here, she opts for a mid-rise fit to show just a little bit of skin.
Treat yourself to lace details
For a confidence boost from the inside out, treat yourself to a lace set. In the David Jones styling suite, Elomi’s briefs give Nadia a little extra coverage, while the adjustable underwire bra delivers a comfortable and supportive lift. And for elegance personified, opt for soft shades of seafoam, pink or lavender by Fayreform.
Master work-to-weekend style
The best spring styles work across multiple occasions and dress codes. For a chic office look, opt for timeless tailoring to transform versatile dresses. Then, for an easy evening transition, simply swap sandals for heels, and a tote for an elegant cross-body bag.
Reach for multitasking accessories
Level up with luxe textures
Nadia elevates monochrome ensembles by pairing lightweight lace with luxurious silk. This date-night ready outfit by Estelle is the perfect springtime take on a chic, all-black look. Finish the ensemble with a crystal-encrusted clutch and super-shimmery shoes, for a pop of sparkle.
