David Jones: Carla Zampatti what to wear this Spring 2021

David Jones, Level 1 & 2

As Spring blooms, your seasonal wardrobe selection is due for a fresh over-haul. Curating your spring outfit options will call for lighter fabrics, softer hues and delicate floral prints that will replace your structured winter selects. Inspired by seasonal colours and destinations, Carla Zampatti offers a fresh collection to inspire the season of growth and vibrancy.

Introducing Spring '21, a collection focused on optimism and the beauty that exists in our lives every day. Dressing in Spring is made easy through the collections focus on bright colours and statement prints.

SS21 Inspired; La Vita è Bella

SS21 is inspired by beauty; the soft light at sunset, silence before a performance begins, the anticipation in the morning of a special day. Spring Summer '21 is focused on vibrancy - with new Apple Green hues setting the tone, this collection is here to be seen & celebrated.

Spring calls for brightness; long lunches, garden weddings, lusted after holidays and evenings spent by the sea. Careful tailoring, bold colours and endless elegance encapsulate SS21.

Defined by decades of expert knowledge and deep passion, Carla Zampatti suiting features impeccable lines and an extraordinary fit. The Dramatic Entrance Coat is bound to make a statement with bold shoulders and cape sleeves.

How to transition your wardrobe from Winter to Spring

Each season, you will likely reach for the same staples; such as a wool coat in winter to layer over most of your looks. With the transitional period between seasons, your go-to’s will require a rethink. Here are a few key tips that can help you adjust your outfits with the new season:

  1. Choose a coat or blazer in a looser fit than your warm winter coat. This will allow more breathability and the ability to layer your look until the temperature rises.
  2. Swap a chunky knit scarf for a silk scarf or cover-up. Choosing a less bulky option will instantly transform your look from Winter to Spring attire. As the evenings get slightly warmer, having something to cover your shoulders may still be necessary, so this is a great way to transition.
  3. Reach for wide sleeves and v-necklines instead of polos. Spring exudes a more casual vibe than Winter – this is evident in both the colour palette and the seasonal silhouette. Instead of a high-neck polo top, a button down shirt or wide arm kimono style top is a more laid-back, easy option, more suited to Spring.

The difference between Spring and Summer Fashion

As many designers release Spring/Summer collections simultaneously, it can be hard to define what is Spring fashion and what is Summer fashion. There are a few key factors that differentiate the seasons, and how you can style your look. The practicalities of the seasons call for Spring fashion to be transitionary, as the Winter fades into a more temperate climate, a chill can nonetheless linger. The ability to layer your outfit is a key element to Spring dressing, alongside silhouettes that gently skim the figure instead of being too tight. Summer dressing calls for airy georgette pieces that are breathable and light-weight on the body, while the ability to throw on a blazer or jumper is not a necessary precaution.

What to wear to a Spring Wedding

Choosing an outfit for a Spring wedding will call for light colours, including pastels, or bold hues in bright green, yellow or red. The season of abundance and vitality, it is essential to lean towards brighter colours for daytime and night-time events alike. The usual wedding guest faux pax’s apply regardless; avoid white unless a specific request has been announced by the bride and groom. It is normally pertinent to avoid black at weddings, but this has become more relaxed over time, but best to avoid black for a garden wedding.

Spring Workwear

Curating your Spring work wardrobe is an opportunity to make a statement and add some colour into your daily routine. Bold suit sets such as the Apple Caped Jacket and Apple Oh So Slim Pant are one of the best options to look smart in the office while also remaining on trend and on season.

One of Carla Zampatti’s signature looks is a well-tailored pantsuit that features statement shoulders and a streamlined design. A well fitted pantsuit can be worn with a simple camisole top underneath to stay cool as the temperature rises. Pairing statement jewellery in elongated and elegant designs was a design staple enjoyed by Carla Zampatti herself. A simple pantsuit was almost always accompanied by a gold necklace.
