This season, add easy-to-wear updates to your wardrobe that work perfectly for any Easter outing. The ‘it’ piece of the season for ladies is elegant yet practical, and can subtly take you from work to play, or day to night. Enter the ‘cold shoulder top’! Look for this unique, open-shoulder style in feminine florals, crisp whites and laid-back stripes to nail the trend.
Add a touch of glamour to your look with carefully curated chain necklaces and bracelets, which can add a gentle femininity or smart, androgynous tailoring. Forge a little drama, or aim for a more casual, laid back style with stacked rings and chunky bangles in metallic shades.
Sunglasses can finish off any striking look, no matter what the season! Find a shape that suits your face rather than following too many trends – the perfect eyewear is all about confidence. Once you’ve found your shape, be it aviator, wayfarer or cat-eye, seek out metallic or tortoise shell frames, or go bold with a pop of colour to match your outfit.
Having to fit the family’s essentials in your bag can be a hassle, but a classic tote will stand up to even the longest list of day-to-day essentials. Start off with a neutral shade that’s easy to work into your wardrobe palette for the ultimate versatility, before working your way up to colour blocking your styles. Coral and peach hues add warmth, while aquatic turquoises and striking cobalt blues give a subtle yet cool edge.
Accessorising top tip:
choose an accent colour from your outfit and carry it through in your accessory choices. Hot palettes to watch this season are burgundy, tan and earthy forest greens.
You can’t go past the timeless investment of quality denims. The universal off-duty texture, denim translates across any outfit combination – a great pair of jeans will never go out of style. Get playful with your use of denims, too. Look out for denim shirts and jackets for an autumnal hat-tip to the bygone summer, and dress down smarter staples by carefully pairing light wash hues with classic whites, blacks and navys.
The strappy, lace-up gladiator style in a stiletto, block heel or flat continues to head up the must-have list in footwear this season. For a laid-back, weekend shoe, the versatile ‘slide’ will be your go-to. Keep an eye out for neutral tones for a dressed-down style, or ramp up the drama with a metallic shade, perfect for building depth into your looks.
And for the kids...
It’s blue for the boys this season! From deep navy denims to pastel mints and sky blues, this easy-to-wear colour is your go-to. Pair with sturdy, sporty sneakers for action packed holiday fun, while a water-friendly pair of Crocs will leave the lads puddle-ready for the total splash factor.
For the little ladies, a palette of gelato-inspired pastels will turn heads this season. Muted tones of salmon pink, mint green, lemon and apricot will work well with light, fresh cottons when it comes to creating comfortable, holiday-ready outfits.
Head to Casuarina Square this Easter and give your wardrobe a style shake-up. With plenty of stores to suit all tastes, you’ll be the best dressed guest at your next social occasion.
