We love Spring. It not only signifies the start of lighter, warmer days as the nights get shorter, but it’s also the time of year when nature is at it’s best - blooming with beautiful, vibrant colours.
Not forgetting...Easter! The best time of year for any chocolate fiend.
After those long and dark winter months, spring is literally a breath of fresh air.
But...what do I wear?!
As much as we love spring, it can also cause havoc with our wardrobes.
Often described as that awkward ‘in between season’, too cold for the summer clobber (no matter how hopeful you are), but too mild for those thick winter coats we've been hibernating throughout winter.
It doesn’t require a brutal revamp of your everyday wardrobe, but more of a spring clean to make room in your wardrobe for those seasonally appropriate pieces.
Hello lightweight sweaters, my dear friend.
Here at Letter Clothing Company, along with our simple and stylish hand lettered designs, we also offer the fact that our scoop neck sweaters our made out of 100% organic cotton. Cotton is the best choice of fabric to keep you cool whilst still covered, this is because it is breathable, but on that note, it’s also insulating as cotton doesn’t conduct temperature well - you get the best of both worlds!
Get the look this spring...slogan pieces are in.
We’ve been keeping our eyes peeled to see what's been hot on the runway this season and we are happy to announce that slogan pieces are IN! As seen in non other than Christian Dior’s, Stella McCartney’s and Sacai’s runway looks.
But what to wear with these statement pieces? The 80’s called, they want their shoulder pads back.
This season boxy, loose fitted, over sized garments are what’s in, so why not pair your Letter Clothing slogan grey scoop neck sweater with a black, heavy-shouldered, over-sized blazer coat? To finish off the look, but also but keep with this season, why not add a pair of straight leg ripped light blue jeans, teamed with a pair of grey mules. To complete your look, you can try adding a cherry on top with an over sized baby pink shoulder bag - almost every shade of pink is popping this spring.
