Spring Style Inspiration.


Spring fashion has officially sprung! Although the weather has been frosty over the past few weeks, it’s definitely starting to pick up. The elves have been taken down off the shelves and replaced with Easter eggs, so we thought we’d release our inner Gok Wan and give you a little spring style inspiration.

Give Winter The Boot.

The sun is peeping through the clouds but that doesn’t mean it’s time to break out the flip-flops.
But it also doesn’t mean the only shoes you can wear are your clumpy winter boots because let’s face it, they’ve probably taken a beating in the latest weather.
So we’ve had a little browse around Schuh and we were speechless. All we can say is they’ve really pulled out all the stops this year. From Kim K styled ankle boots to flower power doc martins, their spring shoe collection is stunning. They have something for everyone, for the simmered stylist to the full blown fashion icons, you’ll 100% find the shoe for you.

Bag it.

An outfit is all about the accessories and this spring, we’re all about pops of colour and florals! Bright greens, yellows and pinks are definitely on the seasonal menu. We couldn’t believe our eyes when we stepped into New Look and saw the array of colours surrounding us!
From stylish back packs to WAG bags and clutches, there’s a bag to fit every occasion just in store for you.

Get your coat…

We know it’s spring but we’re still in York, so lets face it, it’s still going to be chilly – they don’t call it April showers for nothing! But that doesn’t mean you’ve got to trek about in a big parka all the time, H&M’s men’s jacket range is amazing. From sleek going out jackets, to casual day to day, their collection is perfect for any man with any price range!

Seasonal Skirts

It’s time to whip out your skirts girls, because we’re all about flowers and frills in the spring.
Topshop’s collection is perfect for a quick photo opp in the street – whether you prefer a fitted mini skirt or you want to channel your inner princess in a long flowy maxi, we’ve got you covered.
