Even though today is the official first day of spring, it certainly doesn’t feel like it in Vancouver. Normally Vancouverites have the luxury of taunting various Canadians across the country with our temperate weather, and it looks like we are finally getting some payback. White other provinces have been experiencing above average temperatures, Vancouver seems to be perpetually stuck with winter accessories like hats, scarves, and of course, the signature Vancouver umbrella.
If Vancouver can’t participate in the warm weather, we might as well dream of it, and we only have to look as far as the Vancouver Holt Renfrew. Their latest window instalments, Planting Season, are full of bright colours, outdoor adventures, and spring fun.
Each display depicts various springtime activities, and is lighthearted, playful, and full of vibrant colours. Both the window scenes and fashion focuses on minimalism, with clean lines, simple silhouettes, and flirty prints.
Among neon wheelbarrows and indigo blue wellies are simple spring styles that can be pulled together in a matter of minutes. Patterns of all types were used to add contrast and depth to an overall effortless look.
The scenes feature a number of variations on a spring essential for both men and women: the perfect lightweight cover-up. A striped cardigan, cargo jacket, versatile blazer, or fitted rain jacket are easy closet staples that can be used to transition from one season to another.
Spring is the start of something new, fresh, and lively, so why not coordinate your wardrobe (and your mindset)?
