Spring fashion for a Europe trip

WITH ALL THAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW the only thing that keeps me sane while in quarantine is online shopping (not necessarily buying). I buy the majority of my clothes from second hand and thrift stores but online shopping is like therapy to me. Scrolling through pages of items, putting them in the shopping cart and thinking about whether or not they should go into my wardrobe.

I think the most important part when buying new items is quality and fit. Right now all I can think about is soft fabrics and knitted sets that are cozy to wear at home. I think we should all invest in at least one stylish loungewear set and a pair of slippers to make the time spent at home a bit more comfortable.

There are so many amazing loungewear sets out there and just think about when you are able to fly in one of them! I don’t think it gets more comfortable than that. Maybe leave the slippers at home though. But back to spring, as temperature begins to rise and you can see warmer days ahead on your weather app. Just imagine when we can walk around in floral dresses and bare legs – can’t wait!

I have found some easy, basic and chic looks that you can wear all season while traveling around Europe. These are my favourite pieces that I hope will inspire your spring wardrobe as well:

Black high-waisted jeans (adlink) (+ also in love with this wrap blouse (adlink)), lavender button-up silk shirt (adlink), a mini crossbody bag for carrying your essentials and timeless espadrille sandal wedges (adlink)

Simple combinations are key when traveling. A classic pair of black jeans can be combined endlessly. Why not throw in a bottom-up shirt in the mix that you can either dress up or dress down. I personally love pastels for the summer months and particularly this lavender colour because it gives that lovely spring feel.

You will need a practical bag that holds all your essentials when strolling around. This crossbody bag from RAINS is waterproof which makes it perfect when the weather can be a bit unpredictable. It is also time to dust off your leather heel mules and ballerina flats and start to show off some skin. This pair with a little bit of heel works well with pants, skirts and shorts.

Loose-fitting white denim (adlink), striped tee (adlink), cat-eyes sunglasses, high-waisted leather pant (adlink), embroidery and ruffled dress, a pair of statement trainers (adlink)

When you bring out your sunglasses you know for a fact that spring is in the air. I personally love these classic Ray-Ban shades. If you are heading to south of Europe, don’t forget to bring sunscreen and a swimsuit. Swap your sweaters for breezy tees in different colours and shapes. This striped bubblegum pink is timeless and will work well with a pair of white wide-leg denim jeans and a bucket bag.

If you want a bit more edge to your look why not pair it with a pair of leather pants? I think the pants would look amazing together with an old band t-shirt when getting lost in a new city. Why not throw on a warm button cardigan when it gets colder and add a layered necklace for a more put together look.

I just can’t get enough of all these voluminous dresses that is taking over the fashion industry – and a dress is a must on any trip. This oversized silhouette trend is screaming spring and this white one is both feminine and bold. Think puffed sleeves and a billowy skirt and you are ready to go. You can wear it both exploring a new neighbourhood with a pair of chunky sneakers. If voluminous dresses are not your thing, why not pack down a classic wrap dress instead? You can easily pair it with some strap heeled sandals for a late dinner at a cozy restaurant.

I have had my eyes on the perfect trench coat for a while now and I feel like this one checks all the boxes. It got a nice camel-colour, chic belt, cropped nicely at the top, double-buttoned and had that perfect length – if I only had the money. Trench coats are perfect for European spring weather, but so is a classical jeans jacket too. When the temperature drops at night – tie a silk scarf around your neck.

I think a midi jeans skirt and a white lace top are spring essentials because these items are so versatile. You can combine them with your favourite white sneakers (why not a pair of Veja), flats or heels to bring your outfit to the next level. Add some jewellery or a print that brings a bit of wow and you can transform the whole look (even your sweatpants).

I am not gonna lie, I love neutral colours and classic lines. The good thing is that it creates a good base that you can play around with to transition pieces from season to season. Spring is all about light layers and fabrics, it’s warm one minute and chilly the next so think about bringing a light jacket and a warm knitted cardigan onto your trip.

When packing for any trip, think about how you can mix and match your pieces together in advance to avoid over-packing. With that said, are you ready to head out and explore?
