What is Spring Launch, you ask? Well, it’s all about newness. We welcome spring with open arms; finally, the days stay lighter for longer, the harsh winds of winter become more gentle, and perhaps most wonderfully, the glorious colours of the spring buds start to break up the grey gloom. Yes, despite Storm Doris, there are things to feel excited about – and it won’t be long before we’ve all got a bit of spring fever! Whether it be freshening up your wardrobe or home – it’s all about adding some new life into your surroundings, and as always, Littlewoods has it all!
Let’s start with some fresh looks for your wardrobe. The only possible downside to spring is: what to wear? It’s not quite cold enough for your winter togs, yet not warm enough yet for proper summer garb. The key is to look for versatile between-seasons pieces that will work perfectly throughout the spring months. Look for neutral tones, medium-weight fabrics, and just enough coverage to keep you warm. Take this fun stripey blue dress from River Island, for example. Pair with leggings and a blazer for a transitional look now, then lace up some strappy sandals and go bare-legged in summer. Accessories are a great place to start adding some warmer colours too. Check out this fabulous Bairo studded clutch from Dune in pale pink reptile – incredibly chic – or the Nine West block heeled peep-toe boot in a warm tan hue and a snakeskin-effect finish.
Turning to the latest trends for Home… Metallics are still trendy as ever, but copper will be the metal of choice for 2017. It brings such warmth and texture to any space, and catches the light so beautifully. Especially as the days get longer, imagine coming home from work and seeing the sun’s last rays glinting off this quirky-cool copper lamp in the shape of a pineapple – a symbol for welcome, appropriately enough! Adding light colours and strong prints as accent pieces, like this Oslo cushion, can also go a long way towards giving your lounge a chic makeover. And why not fully embrace the spirit of The New with the inspirational Imagine, Believe, Achieve wall art?
The season of longer days and blooming flowers means that it’s also time to start thinking about sprucing up the outside of your home as well. Does your garden need a re-vamp? Why not have a nosey around the Littlewoods Garden Shop? We’ve got some fabulous garden furniture, décor, picnic-ware, and so much more – you’re sure to find something that will make you think spring!
Whatever you might need to help you turn a new leaf, shake off the winter blahs, and spread a bit of sunshine – we have you sorted!
