With Valentine’s Day officially behind us, we’re now in the weird part of the year. Winter is just about over, with no more holidays for the season to look forward to. Still, spring seems so far away. In the doldrums until the warmer weather arrives, now’s a great time to reinvigorate your wardrobe with some hot Shop Splash picks.
Let’s begin with a scorcher, Alice McCall’s Mystical playsuit in a vintage wash denim blend. This 60s styled romper has long sleeves and short shorts. The wrists and shoulders both have elasticizing so the sleeves puff out dramatically. Oh, and the button closures and pockets are both functional. The brassiere-style front with the sweetheart neckline is quite sweet, as is the square-shaped cut at the back.
Breathe in spring with every step you take in another pick by Alice McCall, this time the designer’s Incantations dress. Colored a bright terracotta peachy-orange, this short-sleeved dress is made of real leather. The skirt includes leather shorts underneath so the thigh slit isn’t so revealing. Contrast stitching and a leather waist belt also add structure to this supple, pretty dress that will have you shaking off the winter blues ASAP.
Valentine’s Day may have just passed, but there’s no need to retire the pink from your wardrobe. C/MEO Collective’s Early On mini dress will have you calling for Cupid all over again. The funky woodgrain style combined with the electric pink hue makes this number one big head-turner. Also making this mini a winner is the flattering gathered material throughout, the adorable balloon sleeves that give way to ruffles right above the elbow, and a small front keyhole beneath the breasts. The back, which also has a square-shaped cut, features shirring. Since this dress is made of woven, mid-weight fabric, you can wear it from winter to spring easily!
For those days you want to strut your stuff, reach for Alexis’ sequin pants in a delicate light tan. These high-waisted trousers slip right on so you spend less time getting ready in the morning. They’re partially lined, so don’t let their white hue scare you. The lovely leaf pattern throughout is a nice touch, as are the slits you’ll find on both legs.
When the weather gets a touch warm, show off some shoulder in the Caspian dress from Significant Other. This tropical midi dress zips at the side, but don’t worry, as the zipper is hidden. A geo print with tropical leaves will get you in a summertime state of mind early. The one sleeve you do have in this asymmetrical dress is overly large on purpose. Your opposite hip will also stand out due to the gathered material at the waist tie. This midi comes lined so you show off only the skin you want to.
Another classy pick perfect for the last weeks of winter also comes from Significant Other. It’s their Sabine dress in a seasonally appropriate cream. This long-sleeved flowing midi dress is made of a generous stretchy fabric that feels great on your skin. A thick front waist tie provides some shape and structure to this simple midi, which also has gathering at the high neckline and a small, triangular cutout mid-back. You can only find these chic late winter looks on Shop Splash!
