#MondayMotivation: Versatile pieces you’ll love for the early days of spring

Well hey there, spring! It’s great that you’re here. Most of us are beside ourselves with excitement because spring offers longer, warmer days and endless opportunities to show some skin and shop for cute swimsuits.

However the days that are less balmy serve as a reminder that it’s only the beginning and summer has not fully emerged.

With that being the case, and the reality of two seasons in one, transitional pieces are all that you need to make your life as pleasant as possible.

So here are some of the best picks to keep your looks practical and ever stylish:

The Blazer Dress

A dress that will give you all the right feels. It's a vintage treasure characterised by bold masculine tailoring but also with an elegant touch of femininity is everything that the blazer dress represents.

A perfect dress for a spring day or evening especially if the sleeves are a three quarter length or full length, or better yet a bardot option to show off your shoulders on a warmer day.

It so happens that kimonos are the new black in outerwear and we're more than okay with that.

A knockout robe will keep you more than just covered, especially when you’re feeling a little lazy.

This contrasting patchwork kimono from Zara is a must-have.

Socks have taken first place as the ultimate accessory in 2017, and they have no rival. Rihanna’s recent Fenty by Stance collection was yet another confirmation of this.

Pair them with your platform sandals and heels, or in whichever way. Remember: there are no rules.
