Dressing for that awkward period between the freezing depths of winter and milder late spring months can be a nightmare. Rather than splashing out on a whole new closet, accessorising is a super easy and affordable way to transform any outfit. These timeless Aran accessories are key spring wardrobe staples that will provide longevity by being mixed and matched year after year.
Pantone Colour Of The Year 2017
Fashion critics wait with bated breath each January in suspense of the Pantone Colour of the Year announcement. This year’s revitalising shade couldn’t be more in keeping with Irish heritage and the Aran Sweater. Introducing greenery; a refreshing shade of zest-yellow green that is symbolic of new beginnings – the perfect hue for sprightly spring. The Ladies Tweed Newsboy Hat in light green or 100% Wool Forest Green Celtic Scarf will be the perfect on-trend addition to your wardrobe this year.
Combat Temperamental Weather
The months from February to April are renowned for those notorious spring showers and blustery winds. It can be hard to prepare for the temperamental Irish weather upon going outdoors. A honeycomb shawl or light cape is the ideal cover-up to store in your handbag in the event of an impromptu downpour. Light and compact, they can be folded and carried easily with minimum fuss.
City Break Chic
Jetting off on a romantic city break over Valentine’s Day or during the Easter holidays? Of course you must look the part darling! Imagine how chic you will look as you stroll beneath the Eifel Tower whilst donning a feminine and classical Fisherman Beret. Don’t forget to pack like a pro by stowing a trusty blanket scarf in your hand luggage. This will fight off the in-flight air conditioning by keeping you warm and cosy.
The Big Spring Clean
Out with the old and in with the new. Nothing cleanses the mind like a big spring clean. Whether it’s your diet or your closet that needs revitalising, you can’t beat that sense of satisfaction on completion. Begin by clearing out your makeup stash; clean and sterilise your brushes, check expiration dates and whittle down to your most-used products. Afterwards, treat yourself to a brand new Book of Kells Cosmetic Bag to keep them in mint condition.
Elegant Office Wear
2016 saw the comeback of the choker, and this 90’s trend looks set to stick around for the foreseeable future. Model a more sophisticated grown-up look in the office by opting for a graceful silk scarf with chic side-knot. Choosing a colourful Celtic print will instantly add a bold statement for the confident working woman.
