How to create a versatile wardrobe for Spring

How to create a versatile wardrobe for Spring. We are finally beginning to have more freedom to get out and about and meet up with our friends and family. Although not fully back to normal we are beginning to progress in the right direction. I am getting requests from readers about advice on what to wear when we are able to socialise and ideally towards the end of May travel to certain destinations.

So today I am reviewing the early Spring collection from HopeFashionuk. Above I am wearing their longline linen cardigan in navy. This is such a versatile item. I have teamed it here with a foundation body in bright indigo blue which teams perfectly with a contrast hem pleated skirt in the same beautiful blue. You can see it teamed with their denim trousers below.

In my survey at the beginning of the year I had several requests for covering the challenging subject of sustainability. For me the most sustainable way to dress is to shop carefully, wisely, look after your clothes and choose styles that you will be able to wear for years to come. If you are a regular reader of my blog you will be aware that I regularly feature items that I have had in my wardrobe for many years. I also choose to spend my money with brands that I trust.

Today I am reviewing items from the HopeFashionuk new Spring collection. Nayna McIntosh founded Hope in 2015. You can read about her philosophy here. Hope is truly a brand for “Grown-up women”, she really understands us and what we want from our clothes. Every item needs to work hard, wear well and integrate easily into our existing wardrobes. I have two Hope sweaters from their first collection which I still love and wear often.

    I appreciate your approach to sustainability by choosing clothing from brands you trust, choosing carefully and wearing the pieces for a long time. I love the long linen cardigan. I am short and might not choose one quite so long but I am on the lookout for a relatively long one in linen. Seems like it would be really useful when it gets hot here.

    I love that view of the Thames, from Richmond. Gorgeous. Equally gorgeous are your outfits. I particularly like the bright blue, top with pleated skirt and navy longline cardigan. You look so elegant and relaxed. Ideal for now. Thank you Josephine for your energy, enthusiasm, inspiration and guidance. Karen

    Indeed, this outfit with the blue pleated skirt (and yes, similar to my red one), looks wonderful on you. The cardigan is a great item with it.
