Spring brings the shedding off of the last layers of winter blues and also the layers of clothes that come with it. And while there still is a certain chill lingering, there is also pleasantness and the spirit of romance filling the air. H&M seems to have caught on with the nuances of fresh blooms and pastels to tell the tale of Spring 2019 through their latest collection. Let’s sneak a peek at some fashion and beauty looks to welcome the season of blossoms.
Look 1: Monochromatic Minimalism
A pair of slim-fit ankle length jeans with a loosely knit pastel sweater top emanate a cosy yet stylish vibe that is a perfect transition from winter to spring. The contrast of the blue of the denim against the pastel of the sweater top feels just right and the almost off-the-shoulder slouch of the sweater brings a touch of oomph to the whole look. Paired with pastel pumps and a half-up-half-down hairdo, this minimal yet chic ensemble is perfect for dewy spring brunches or crisp evenings sipping some exquisite wine, al-fresco. The classic black or even brown liner and natural lips complete this look with style.

Look 2: Colour Pop!
You can glide through winter into spring with pops of colour too. Although pastels take centre stage this season, don’t be afraid to experiment with bright colours for statement eyes or lips. Add a ray of sunshine by packing your lids with a chrome yellow shadow and a swipe of moss green on the lower lashes, that make walnut eyes stand out. Apply lashings of mascara for the perfect flutter. The nude lip adds balance to make the eyes the defining statement of this make-up look. The half-up-half-down hairstyle frames the face beautifully, while also revealing the dewy high-points.

Look 3: Vision in Lilac
Nothing embodies romance better than some lace and soft curls. This lilac V-neck spaghetti dress is a bit flirtatious and the pastel hue adds innocence to the entire look. Perfect for date night, this piece is sure to make heads turn as you twirl in this fitted waist and flared skirt dress. The pastel pumps elevate the silhouette, even with the monochromatic theme. The intricacy of the lace throughout the dress and the frayed detail at the hem are what make this outfit unique. The ivory pearls on the collar necklace, which emulate the dew drops of springtime, and the matching bracelet, bring elegance to the look. The romance continues with a pop of brightness in the form of a stained, yet, saturated rose pout and nails to match. They mimic the freshness and blooms of spring. Add a little bit of mascara to frame the eyes and a highlighter on the high points for that glow. Hair flips with open soft curl tresses are bound to draw the attention of everyone who beholds this look that exudes romantic, angelic and spring vibes.
