I am getting excited and all ready for Chinese New Year that is approaching in just a few more days (3 more days to be exact)! Just the thought of the sumptuous meals and snacks is already enough to make me salivates, it is definitely a joyous occasion for everyone. As Chinese New Year approaches, it also signifies that spring is approaching. Gone with the cold and harsh winter and comes with the cooling weather. Spring is all about flowers, colours and more colours! It is definitely my favourite season of all. I love to embrace all the bright colours like yellow because it just fits right into the sunny Singapore! Thus get ready to put aside your black, grey and dark coloured clothing as it is time to introduce some floral and colours into your wardrobe (or just simply sell them away on Carousell).
But do you know exactly what are the must-have items for Spring 2016? Oh well, i have a guide for you here (it’s time to get all dolled up for spring!) So what are we waiting for, lets get started!
- Rose Quartz and Serenity Colour
Rose Quartz and Serenity colours have been seen widely on the runways and major fashion brands since November last year after it has been announced the colour of the year 2016. It being a first to having 2 colours for the colour of the year is rather special and intriguing . The significant meaning behind this occurrence is to promote equality in the world, be it gender or race or other aspects, it is seen as a movement to encourage the minimisation of the gap between inequalities. This is actually a very beautiful and meaningful effort.
Among all the black and grey clothing in stores this season, you can often see a few pieces of rose quartz and serenity coloured clothing popping up. I love how it actually slip its way into being one of the colour of Spring 2016. The soft and graceful look of these 2 colours fits right into the Valentine season too (the season of love). My current favourite is this Floral Bralet from Bardot. Just imagine how pretty your Instagram photos will be with you wearing a Rose Quartz or Serenity coloured outfit, standing infront of an endless bed of spring flowers. I know it will look amazing!
- Lace, Lace and more Lace
There are lace everywhere (from clothing to bags to shoes) this season and it is sometimes too much for my wallet to handle! I have so much love for lace because they are so romantic and soft and sexy at the same time. If you shun away from lace thinking that it reminds you of wedding dresses or that they are too dressy for casual days, you are definitely wrong! The lace this season shouts boho chic, making a resort getaway in Bali almost a need more than a want for Spring 2016. My current obsession is Fortune Baby Doll Dress by Jen’s Pirate Booty (love that the lace is hand drawn and it is in black!). Lace just gives off that romantic feel and almost always makes your outfit resort ready. Definitely a must-have for Spring 2016.
- Skinny scarf
OH EM GEE. Who would have known that the skinny scarf can be so chic and hot? Ever since i saw Gigi Hadid wearing one of those black skinny scarf with a basic top and a killer pair of jeans, i know that this is what i gotta have for spring 2016. It has become an obsession of mine to own one of them in both black and nude colour! Before acknowledging this trend outburst, i saw plenty of skinny scarf in Zara Barcelona. Thinking of it now, I constantly regret not buying it back then! Skinny scarf can instantly makes your boring outfit appears sassy and chic. How amazing is that?! And yes it is still not too late to get them now before the trend dies off. The great thing is that you can purchase them at ASOS for as low as SGD$11 (they are having a major price down). I would say gotta have 1 and gotta have it fast!
I hope that i have given you some inspiration as to where you should spend that ang pow money of yours! Being trendy can be inexpensive, all you gotta do is to look out for good deals constantly and check back for my updates on where to get them!
I wish you a Happy Chinese New Year and a prosperous year ahead!
