The countdown has officially begun and the early spring flair is definitely in the air. What spring does come with though is the unpredictability of what the weather will bring. So yes, bring out your colour dresses and shorter sleeves but know you are going to need a few essentials to get you through the season in style!
The best way to go into the season with style and confidence is to make sure you have the basics in the bag. In this way you won’t have to fret over the details, as long as you’ve laid a really good foundation.
Meet your spring essentials:
1. Lightweight jacket
Personally I think a trench coat/blazer is not only an investment piece that can transition you into any season but it is also such a style staple to elevate any look, writes stylist Rojaun Devos. Whether you pair it with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, or a simple top and show-stopping shoes seen on media personality Aisha Baker, or even over a cocktail dress, the trench/blazer always creates a look of sophistication without necessarily having to break the bank.

2. White Sneakers
A white sneaker is such a timeless piece to have in your wardrobe. You could never go wrong with it (as long as at has clean lines, and is a nice crisp white) it is one item that could go with almost everything in your closet, being the ultimate shoe for multi-purpose endeavours. We love the shoe in its simplicity as seen on our August cover star, Miss Lorna Maseko who rocked her white sneakers with a simple half-buttoned-down dress and statement bag.

3. Maxi or midi dress
Honing in on multi-functional, a maxi/midi dress can take you from day to night and even smart to casual depending on how you style it. Whether you opt for a longer sleeve for those cooler days or short sleeve for the days where the sun is doing its best, this investment piece is a simple throw-on that oozes effortless glam. As seen below on digital creator Aqeelah Harron Ally, she layered her dress with a white shirt underneather – perfect for the cooler days.
