Thanks to our friends at SABA
It’s fair to say that the events of 2020 sent us into a style rut.
But with the weather warming up and restrictions slowly lifting, we’re beginning to see the light at the end of the fleecy tunnel. To celebrate our recent date with Queer Eye’s chief fashionista Tan France, we called up our friends at SABA to give us their hot take on all things Spring fashion.
SABA have just released their new collection, and it’s the inspiration we needed to get out of our comfy WFH clothes and into something resembling fashion. They have spring (and beyond!) covered, offering everything from timeless midi dresses for special occasions, feminine prints in floaty silks, and tailored shorts that will take you from dining room desk to weekend.
We spoke to SABA Senior Buyer Hayley Perren about making the transition to Spring dressing, and rediscovering your style.
How do we make the transition to Spring dressing, and rediscover our style after months spent in track pants at home?
After all these months couped up, Spring is the perfect time to make your fashion debut back into the world. Moving into the warmer Spring/Summer months, we are still all about comfort (tight fitting, uncomfortable clothes are a thing of the past), and instead making a statement with bold colours & prints in easy to wear silhouettes. Flirty printed dresses are a must have and require minimal effort and thought, but pack maximum punch.”
If we were to invest in one item from the new collection, what would you suggest and why?
Everyone should have a printed silk mini dress in their wardrobe. Whilst investing in a print may not seem the most practical, the mileage you will get out of a printed silk mini dress will prove its worth. Wear to the office with a closed toe heel and blazer, then switch straight into a strappy heel and add some earrings for a post work event. You can even take your printed mini through to a weekend lunch by toning it down with a fresh pair of sneakers. We offer two different printed silk minis for Spring/Summer with slightly different necklines and sleeve lengths. Both styles feature a wrap style skirt with tie which is perfect for adding a little extra coverage around our mid-section, as well as giving you the option to tie tighter if you want to really show of your waist.
What are the key trends we can expect to see in this new season?
Outside of bold, printed easy dresses, we are also seeing a resurgence of the short suit. Suiting has been big for some time, but moving into the warmer months we see trousers traded in for tailored city shorts paired back with their matching blazer. Shorts are slightly longer in length and feature tucks, pleats & self-belts. Layer underneath with a ribbed racer tank (the seasons absolute must have basic) or a silk cami to take it into the evening.
