Step Into Spring With Collectif!

Written by La Petite Pinup

Long awaited, Spring has finally sprung and the warmer weather is almost within reach. To transition through the season with some vintage flare and provide some outfit inspo, let’s have a look at the fabulous new range of spring time favourites.

PRETTY IN PASTELS

The blooming marvellous Hortensia print oozes springtime feels with its luscious array of blue and purple hydrangeas. The Caterina swing is a really easy shirt dress to wear which can be dressed up or down. Pair it with the effortlessly cool Outlaw glitter jacket in lilac to add a little pastel sparkle to your day. The Berry Delight earrings continue to pick out those purple tones perfectly and the Georgia baby blue heels, Luiza bag, and Freda hat complement the blue hues, keeping you comfortable and safe from springtime sunshine while out and about.

For the perfect ice cream sundae palette, try the Titta Humbug dress in mint with the Charlene Rockabilly cardigan in a delicate rose accent. This retro style dress features a candy striped print with crossover straps and a full swing skirt which looks great with the Banned Retro, Starlite petticoat in light green for extra swoosh when you walk. Accessorise with the Pauline carved bangle and Tara rose bag to compliment the look. The Mary block heels have such a 50s inspired feel to them and the cutest bow to the front to step glamorously into spring!

BOLD & BRIGHT

With blue skies ahead, make a statement with this colourful Dolores top featuring rows of rainbow dots on a bright yellow base. Pair it with a block colour picked out from the top, like red, and wear with the Matilde skirt (which is a great staple to have in the wardrobe) and Banned yellow petticoat – they look great together and so vivid! Cinch that waist in with the Elza belt with the Felicity bag and add the Lila heels to step out in classic vintage style. Wear with the Korrina trench with its full swing skirt to protect you from any April showers on the horizon and banish dreary days with a look that’s bright and fun!

Pinks and red clash magnificently and look spectacular on this Frances swing dress and Banned Retro petticoat. The burgundy tones and bright pinks work so well together and transition into Spring perfectly. Add the Kimberley bolero and gorgeous Zara trench coat to keep a little warmer on cooler days. Zara is a fabulous new design featuring turned up cuffs and a pointed collar – so reminiscent of retro coats of the era. Complete the outfit with the Amber T-bar heels in the contrasting colours and accessorise with the Pearly flower studs in the same shade.

SPRING GREENS

This sweet outfit in soft greens and white is so pretty and fresh. The Katrina skirt’s delicate leafy print is light and has an elasticated waist for comfort. Pop the Maddy petticoat underneath for a little extra volume, and add a Lorena top and Jeanie bolero for an enchanting daytime look. The Erstwilder Sweet Like Honey set with its subtle white flowers and green leaves from handcrafted resin makes the ideal vintage accessories and the Malia heels with their beautiful floral accents perfectly enhance this spring outfit.

Green can be gloriously bright as well as muted, so why not try the Caterina pencil dress – a midcentury shirtwaister style with a cute polka dot print. Red and green compliment each other so well, so accent with the Lucy cardigan with its darling strawberry button detail and the Dina bag, comprising a novelty wicker bag adorned with strawberries! Add the Jemima heels and swap out the existing belt for the Gloria belt to really pull the red together. Bangle stack to your heart’s desire with the Simone and Dotty bracelets in green and red to complete the overall look.

SUNSHINE & SASS

Beautiful sunny Spring mornings need gloriously sunny attire! The Cordelia top radiates that glow and paired with the Polly lemons skirt, it adds some fresh, fruity, zing to the day too! Keep cosy in the Linda cardigan and feel effortlessly elegant in the Jeanie heels with their dainty ribbon ties. Accessorise with the polka dot bandana and matching Lois studs to pick up the details from the skirt, and the matching Rosie lemons bag which is super cute but practical too with lots of room for essentials.

The Bright & Beautiful Penny trousers are an absolute delight! Such a charming 60’s inspired print of yellow and white flowers with green leaves. Wear with the Paula top to accentuate the green; the bardot top works so well with the overall look and light knits are a great Springtime essential. Bring on the Flower Power with these earrings and add the Erstwilder Dandelion broochand Tara bag to continue to tie in the yellows and greens of the outfit. The Malia shoes are a comfortable choice for shopping days and look absolutely adorable with the white daisies running over the strap.

CASUAL BUT CUTE

Keep it casual but fun with the Serenity cardigan and its amazing diagonal rainbow stripes. Wear it with the Eugenia capris for classic but laid-back styling. There’s a big beautiful bow to the front which lifts them from a regular pair of capris to something a little more special, but still great every day wear. Indulge that rainbow life and fill your world with colour, adding the Sue wedges and Melly bag to accessorise this fabulous ensemble! The Porsha earrings and Carrie bangle continue the vibrant and fun theme for this comfy, colourful outfit to see you through the Spring.

Casual with a nautical nod, this outfit is great for a dress down day without giving up that retro aesthetic. The Taci jeans have a wide leg and cool anchor buttons to the front, and goes great with the Carina striped t-shirt. It may still be a bit too cold to dazzle in just a t-shirt though, so pop over the Brooke jacket to keep you warm. A vibrant red is always a great addition for this kind of look and the jacket has a really lovely curved lapel and cinched back detail. Continue the red accents with the Gaia trainers which are great for running around in everyday and the lobster earrings to really bring out those kitschy seaside vibes. For more rockabilly feels, add the Regina bag which has a nifty embroidered tattoo heart patch on the front.

So whatever the weather, and whatever your style, there’s an outfit for you this Spring with plenty more inspiration from the new collections on the website too. Rediscover the fun of putting your outfits together and enjoy a safe release from lockdown as you strut your Collectif style down the streets and aisles of your favourite places.
