Spring is all about new beginnings and revitalising yourself, and there is no better way to do just that than by adding a little something new to your wardrobe and beauty regime. This season vibrant colours and bold prints have been taking over the runway, setting the perfect tone for a bright and beautiful spring season. Here are some of the best fashion and beauty tips to wash those dark and stormy winter skies away, making room for a new, fresh you.
Everyone likes to indulge during winter, when it’s cold and miserable outside there is nothing more comforting than a big plate of carbs, meat and cheese, followed by chocolate. There is nothing wrong with indulging every now and then, it is important to enjoy food and not deprive yourself of the things you love. But if you are looking for a change this season, try your own six month food transformation. Cutting out dairy, replacing carbs with whole wheat pasta and quinoa, as well as adding a healthy portion of salad to every meal can really make a difference.
Changing your diet can be hard, and it’s easy to fall of the wagon. There are lots of different health and lifestyle blogs out there offering tips and advice on living a healthier lifestyle. You could even start you own blog to track your progress, and share your story with a global audience, there is no going back once you’ve declared your new healthy diet in a blog post! Starting a blog is pretty straight forward too, especially when using WordPress package like this one, which you can easily maintain without getting too bogged down in technical details. Writing about your food transformation will help you stay motivated, and might even give others the inspiration to follow in your footsteps.
Once you’ve cleaned up your diet, next step is to revitalise your wardrobe with beautiful floral prints. Floral prints are definitely not just for grannies this season, with designers like J. Mendel taking inspiration from the traditional floral prints of kimonos for a seductive ultra-feminine look, and Chloe getting baking to nature with long sweeping, flowery skirts in their spring 2016 ready-to wear collection. Flowers aren’t just making an appearance in the wardrobe – tulips, lilies and peonies are decorating our beauty products too. I especially love Givenchy’s magnolia printed lipstick, and Jo Malone’s petal printed glass perfume bottles. Adding a touch of blossom to your wardrobe and make-up bag will definitely get you in the mood for a spring party.
Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney and Christian Dior have all updated the classic stripe with brightly coloured, wide and bold stripes. From statement coats in red and black, to a subtle yellow and white striped tank top there are many ways of incorporating stripes into your spring outfit. The selection chosen by Glamour Magazine has it all. Just remember that stripes do tend to be a bit boring if they’re not in striking colours, so don’t be afraid to be colourful. After all, spring is the perfect time to look bright and beautiful so go for bold yellows, blues, reds, and pinks.
