The need to throw on a crazy amount of layers just to stay warm no longer seems necessary, and that can only mean that Spring is that much closer to becoming a reality. I've recently had the pleasure of updating my wardrobe with a few vintage pieces from Rokit–perfect timing in the come up to Spring, as the wardrobe has been in need of a refresh! For those who don't know, Rokit is a vintage clothing brand, which specialises in hand-picked fashion from the 1930s to 1990s, with a mix of every style from military to festival– a perfect destination for the style savvy.
When picking out favourites, I had in mind what particular pieces in my current wardrobe were in need of an update, and it boiled down to my blazers, jeans and shirts/blouses.
Blazers have always and will continue to be a thing for me. There's no denying that they can take one from basic to chic in a matter of seconds. The style options are endless and I've been particularly drawn to those with a checked print at the moment, so I knew that this grey number with red and black details was the one as soon as I laid my eyes on it. The oversized, boxy mid-cut fit is something I haven't seen anywhere else in a while!
The Denim Jeans
You can never have enough jeans in your wardrobe. Lately, I've been trying to steer clear of continuously wearing blue denim jeans. Having opted for this vintage straight leg style in an acid grey wash, I'd like to think I'm moving in the right direction...
The Pretty Blouse
I've always been a fan of the 'jeans and nice top' movement', a super stylish and easy outfit option for day and evening plans. My favourite type of tops/blouses are those with a silk or satin finish. They always look more expensive than they are worth and so easy to style. Rokit have a ridiculous amount of gems when it comes to satin and silk blouses!
