When first approached to take part in this event, I was immediately excited to participate. Spring fashion is always full of a wide variety of fun colors and styles. But because pastels are not always my first colors of choice, I decided to stick with shades of blue, white, and khaki, as they portray the “fresh” theme of this event. I also wanted to show how you can use the same color scheme for several different looks while still maintaining the same theme.
Hoorenbeek’s new mesh line includes these white slacks (also available in other colors). They come in a variety of sizes and rises and with different belt options to suit each avatar’s preference and stature. These pants are paired with a cool and breezy shirt from Mr. Poet that I tinted to my color of choice.
SHIRT: Mr. Poet – Loose Shirt – White (Tinted)
PANTS/BELT: Hoorenbeek – Mesh Pants – White (Low Rise/Fabric Belt)
NECKLACE: Rustica – Antique Cabochon – Turquoise
WATCH: Chronokit – Watch No.36 Dio – Silver
Redgrave always has a great selection of apparel in many different colors. For a long time, this jacket was only available in black, but the recent release of several new colors makes this the perfect light jacket for spring. Pairing this jacket with other newly released polo, pant, and shoe colors from the old Redgrave El Ganso, makes this an easy one-stop-shop for a fresh spring look.
JACKET: Redgrave – Suit Jacket – Creme
SHIRT: Redgrave – Classic Polo Shirt – Light Blue
PANTS/BELT: Redgrave – Herringbone Pants – Creme
SHOES: Redgrave – Classic Sneakers – Creme
After styling two looks that could either be dressed up or dressed down, I decided to go with a very casual, outdoorsy look. Spring is a great time to unpack your shorts and polo shirts and just have fun. These shorts from NSD paired with a white polo shirt from Aoharu make a light and airy addition to anyone’s spring wardrobe. The sweater is from Gizza’s new mesh line that has just been released, while the shoes are a favorite from FIR&MNA.
SHIRT: Aoharu – Simple Polo Shirt – White
SWEATER: Gizza – Jacket for Shoulders – Ice
PANTS: NSD – Tour Boas – Tan
SHOES: FIR & MNA – Gumshoes – Cream
