Transition to Spring

Ditch those winter doldrums — we’ve made it halfway to Spring!

 

We’ve survived snow, ice and frigid winds, and the light at the end of the tunnel is growing brighter every day. We don’t think we’re the only ones excited for stronger rays of sunshine, pretty blooms and singing birdies!

Here at This Beautiful Dust, we’re gearing up for our New York fashion trip and to help get you ready for the upcoming season, we’re going to give you a bit of advice from our resident ethical fashionista, Linda!

 

Tips to Transition your Wardrobe 

Winter ———> Spring

  • COLOR PALLETTE
  • PRINTS     
  • TEXTURE
  • LAYERS

New England seasons can present a challenge in terms of keeping your wardrobe functional and fashionable, but no mountain is too high! 

We believe in you! And we have all the new pieces to help you along the way. 

 

According to Linda, the easiest and first step to transition to the lighter feel of spring when the mercury is still frightfully low is by adjusting your color palette and playing with textures. 

Adding creams and pinks to your outfits will evoke a lightweight feel. 

Reach for fabrics that are soft and embracing. 

 

“We are super excited about Emerson Fry's pink velvet piece! The shade lends a care-free spring vibe and the velvet hints at the softness spring brings, yet it's still warm enough to be practical,” Linda explained.

She advised wearing Fry’s velvet number as an open jacket by day, then buttoning and belting it as a dress for nighttime fun.

 

TBD will also be adding some new Father’s Daughter frayed denim in some lighter washes. These will be your new favorite pair to wear with short boots now and then flats, heels, or sandals when all the ice melts.

The palette at TBD will shift from blacks, purples and maroons to softer shades of pink, blues, grey and whites. Linda hinted at stripes and other fun patterns to play with. 

 

TBD is also happy to introduce Emerson Fry’s “Curation” spring capsule features heirloom Indian printing and dying processes. Long sleeve tops in gray and white will eventually be joined by blue and patterned caftans to breeze into the summer months.

Linda advises layering these pieces with warm soft sweaters, jeans, and boots currently, and then shed the sweaters, swap the blue jeans for white denim or linen, and free your toes with some open mules or sandals. 

 

We are excited to introduce two new designers that incorporate lots of blues and whites for spring. Furo was created by Californian fashion showroom owner-turned designer Lisa Elliot-Roaas. The line’s name is taken from the Japanese word for “flow”: this reflects in Elliot-Rosas new collection which is populated by pieces that seamlessly take you from day to evening and translate well to both city and countryside activities.  

 

Porcelain & Stone will also be gracing our shelves with nautically inspired porcelain and fine metal pieces.

The designs are sculptural and minimalist, the palette white and blue: sure to make a statement for the new season ahead!

 

 

We’ll have more news to share following our trip to New York!
