GETTING READY FOR SPRING
What a great time to clear out all those clothes you haven’t worn for years. Wash them and take to an OP shop before you change your mind. It’s called “The law of vacuum” once you have created a space you then have room to fill it.
Spring is the season of new beginnings and renewal, so step back and look at what you have left in your wardrobe and let us help you match it up with a few new pieces that are versatile and will compliment your wardrobe.
The ladies in the Ebony shops will enjoy working with you to create a new fresh look with quality and reasonable priced pieces.
Try adding the delicate Threadz Foil heart 2n1 knit top. This looks great with any colour and style, or the lovely Threadz 2n1 Animal stripe print top. These tops are light and very easy to wear.
Have you always worn trousers? Why not try a dress this year for something different? It will keep you cool as the weather warms up and if you’re in that age group that still gets those nasty flushes, a dress in either linen or cotton is a must.
And of course, no Spring wardrobe would be complete without a denim jacket. With or without a collar these Threadz, Home-Lee and Elm jackets are your go to for comfort and style. Super light weight and stretchy, it’s your perfect trans-seasonal cover-up and makes it that ideal piece paired with a summer dress or Tshirt for any of your casual outings.
Don’t forget those feet either. White sneakers are all the rage this year and compliment any outfit for a casual look. Check out the Sara White beige with some nice bling to dress them up. These look great and comfortable to wear.
Of course, another must is a matching handbag, maybe you have a wardrobe full of black or brown bags, check out our selection of the beautiful Louenhide bags in a huge range of colours, shapes and sizes, there’s sure to be something in that range that you just must have.
For a real statement this Spring put this bag together with the Mazie Sweat, 100% cotton, which is an update to a regular fleece. It’s pigment dyed for a washed look and hand feel. With a hem band and pockets this sweat not only looks good but is also functional and very easy to wear.
If you are of the shorter stature, this style is very flattering and can be worn with a merino underneath while the weather is still a bit chilly and then looks great on its own with a statement piece of jewellery. These tops have been extremely popular through the shops and come in range of colours. Everyone will want to know where you shop.
Team up these Gordon Smith Floral Printed Pant GSM39607 and Frilled Hem Top GSM39037 with a Louenhide Charlie Bag in a beautiful Nutmeg colour LOU155NU. Complete your look with a pair of Reality Mullholland Sunglasses REAMULLHOL-TUR
This Gordon Smith top is made of linen which is perfect for spring and summer wear.
The ¾ - length pants are super comfortable and have an elastic waistband.
Use your lockdown time wisely. Think about decluttering your wardrobe ready for new additions. I’ve been going through mine and have found a number of articles I no longer wear. Off to the Hospice shop they go.
If you’re still feeling a bit dowdy after winter a new hairdo always helps and lifts the spirits, a new style or add a bit of colour if it’s in the budget. And if you can get out for some walks or bike rides, you’ll feel totally refreshed.
