Top 4 Picks for your Spring Wardrobe

Top 4 Picks for your Spring Wardrobe Today is a very special day for me in so many ways. It’s a Sunday (duuhh), the beginning of meteorological spring, the start of a new sartorial season, and the first official day at my new job here in Germany (although I really only start tomorrow). To commemorate all those wonderful beginnings I created a look with my top 4 picks for a banging spring wardrobe – one pick for each special occasion.

Top 4 Picks for your Spring Wardrobe If you’ve followed my blog for a while now, none of the chosen items should come as a surprise to you. They’ve been firm favourites of mine since last spring, and are, luckily, still as trendy this year as they were last year. So if I ever had to commit to wearing only one style per clothing category it would be the following…

Top 4 Picks for your Spring Wardrobe Top – Turtleneck: I can’t get enough of the turtleneck. Whether long-sleeved, short-sleeved, without sleeves, made of silk, cotton or chunky wool, the turtleneck is that one item in my wardrobe that is always appropriate and fabulous. There is something about a high neck top I just cannot resist…especially after seeing Portia de Rossi’s Character Veronica in Better off Ted. Her high neck game is so strong!

Top 4 Picks for your Spring Wardrobe Trousers – Culottes: Ahh…culottes. Is there a better feeling than generous legroom in cropped trousers? After wearing culottes all summer it has literally become super difficult to force myself into skinny jeans; mentally, not physically, I might add. They’re just too restricting…ok, I feel like I’m sounding like man with huge junk right now, but fact is, I love the mobility and flexibility culottes provide. Over and out.

Top 4 Picks for your Spring Wardrobe Footwear – Sneakers: Sneakers are a no-brainer. They’re comfy, they’re cool and whenever a situation gets uncomfortable, you can just run away without looking super awkward…possibly…

Top 4 Picks for your Spring Wardrobe Outwear – Boxy coat: I love the silhouette boxy coats create. It’s so high fashion. Although the coat I’m wearing is boxy and kinda flowing at the same time, it will be my go-to outwear piece in spring. It literally goes with everything I own, and if that isn’t reason enough to love it, I don’t know what is.

    Love turtleneck tops… but in Athens you can wear them only in Winter time!

    • http://whatdefinesus.com/ Jasmin

      Yeah…I can imagine! Although white silk turtle necks without sleeves should work in Greek spring too, no? 😉 xx

      • Beauty Follower

        Yes, that kind of top works in Athens even in Spring 😉

  • Ivana Džidić

    What a fabulous outfit! Did Spring really start? How did I miss that?:=
    …and I must say I really like your 4 picks…they’re all very trendy right now (high neck, culottes, sneakers, boxy coats) and seeing them all in one outfit makes me love them even more.

    I did notice I’ve started to wear sneakers more often. Perhaps now I can run away from bad situations without being awkward:) Well, at least one can do it fasted in sneakers.

    I think I would have guessed the 4 without reading it here 😀 They are indeed your signatures and very timeless. I am still discovering the culottes after seeing you inspiring looks every time. When the weather will be a bit nicer, I will pick that up again 😀

      Hehe…am I really so predictable? I’m already sporting culottes all the time again. I luckily hardly ever feel the cold on my legs 😉 xx
