Despite frigid temperatures outside, spring is just around the corner (we promise). And with all the social occasions that come with it, it makes sense to start thinking about your warm(er)-weather wardrobe. We might even go further and say, that you should already be searching for the perfect dresses and skirts to see you through until next winter. And while we don’t want to blow our own trumpet, these new creations from HUGO Womenswear will leave you looking the part, whatever the occasion. Read on to discover the five dresses and skirts to own this season and what to wear them for.
Lunch with the girls. A denim dress is a classic piece and a great option for laid-back spring outings. For instance, if you’re grabbing a relaxed bite to eat with your girlfriends, a cute denim dress will do just the trick. This belted A-line creation from HUGO will look great on just about anyone. Style yours with chunky boots or sneakers to give the look a tougher, cooler finish.
Shopping in the city. When you’re popping in and out of different shops, you need an outfit that works on the go. A leather skirt may sound like an unusual choice, but this one is easy to pull on and off and elevates your look without making it look like you’ve made too much effort. Add an element of comfort to your outfit with a statement sweater and shoes that you won’t mind walking in all day.
An outdoor concert. Spring and summer are when festival season kicks into full swing. If you’re planning to make the most of it, you’ll want an outfit that’s cool and comfortable at the same time. Take this minimal white dress and add bad-girl edge with a leather jacket that you’ll be able to throw over your shoulder during the day, and slip on when the temperature dips at night.
Hanging out in the park. The first sign of good weather, and the picnic blankets are out. Summer isn’t complete without at least one al-fresco hangout – but with seating always an issue, you’re not going to want to wear something too limiting. With this in mind, HUGO’s knee-length plissé skirt may just be the perfect pick. Keep things relaxed, and pair it with a simple T-shirt and sneakers (preferably ones you don’t mind getting dirty).
Drinks at sunset. As far as spring activities go, rooftop drinks are up there with the best of them. Whether you opt for something printed or plain, bold colour is the way to go – especially if you’re going to stand out against the backdrop of a summer sunset. Neutralise the look with black accessories: a leather bag or boots will bring subtle polish to an otherwise bright outfit.
