Wear It Out: Spring into summer with style

Spring is in the air – time to start thinking about our summer wardrobes. Model and student Kate Valk shows us her transitional pieces

 

February marks the start of the industry fashion weeks – everywhere we look there is spring/summer inspiration. It’s now time to liven up our wardrobes, add some colour and pray to the gods of summer. If we wear the clothes, the weather will follow.

This week we meet model and student Kate Valk to check out some of her transitional spring pieces.

The top featured was made by Kate’s mother Annika Udu.

For those of us not lucky enough to have a super-talented mother, Asos have a great range of tees with sheer panels.

I always think the bigger the better with gold jewellery. Release your inner Jenny from the Block and rock your big gold hoops for summer!

90s platforms are refusing to stay in the past. We will forever be influenced by The Spice Girls. A much better option than stilettos, as you get the height but can still run around gracefully on your platforms.

Platform boots, Motive, Ilac Centre, Dublin 1.

Bag

 

Adding a bit of bling to your look with your bag is a great way to dress up a casual outfit. The gold studs on this bag are the perfect way to also give your look some edge.
