Shades of May | #Styleguide

April surely went by in a flash! It was a seriously busy month for us! Our popular-demand Ellysage Exclusive apparels like our Fleur Off-shoulder Dress and our Luna Fit to Flare Dress arrived for us to mail out to new homes! We are also currently in the midst of something pretty exciting so... stay tuned!

The Pantone Spring Colour Report for 2015 has recently been out, and it's full of cheery, understated and wearable colours for the season! Therefore, we've incorporated some of these shades in this styleguide, complete with upcoming apparels for the month of May! Shall we begin?

Navy Nabbed

Classic Blue has been true to its name - quintessential. You've seen it on almost everything, from skirts, to tops, and even sneakers. So it's only natural for us to have a little tinge of navy in our May launches! Our Onora Purple Haze Dress is lightweight and airy, perfect for twirling around and beating the heat in! Whereas our Wylie All Blues Dress and our Briar Fair Square Skirt are perfect for more put-together days, where you need more structure and style. A bag is essential for every look, so why not throw your must-haves into our Oralie The Hobo Bag? Go with a bold red lip to compliment the blues, with some silver accessories!

The Fundamentals

It's fun to play around with colour, but we never stray far from the basics! Titanium and Glacier grey are some of Pantone's spring colours, and we totally agree. Grey hues are easy to match, and are a staple to own. Try our Soren Baseline Dress for shape and texture. If you're looking for something preppy and sophisticated, then this is for you! Cardigans are great for Singapore's unpredictable weather, thus we are totally in love with our Elerie Funday Cardigan in Grey! Knits are the texture to go for this season, despite it being spring. Don't fret, wear it without worrying about being too hot and bothered with our Zena Half Time Dress. Sometimes, all we need is a simple crossbody that'll be small and handy enough to carry around, but also spacious enough to store everything we need. In this case, the Snow White Lies Bag is perfect! Go with gold or silver accessories of your choice, and a girly pink lip to add a pop of colour. We also think wearing pretty, colourful shoes are another way of slipping colour into your look!

Seeing Red

Marsala might just be one of our favourite colours this season, simply because it looks good on anything! Jewel tones like this one are great for the wardrobe, especially if you're afraid to go all out with colours! Our Elerie Funday Cardigan in Red is a number not to be missed! Same goes for our Lux Lightfire Top. Knitted spags like these are all the rage these days, and we can see why. The texture is to-die-for, and we love the loose, airy cutting, which makes it perfect for Singapore weather! A maroon-hued bag we are loving this season would be our upcoming Cordelia Crossbody Bag. It's simple, and timeless. Marsala goes extra well with black, so slip on our Emma True Form Shoes in Black for the finishing touch!

Coralled Crazy

Say yay to cute, vivid summer colours! We're definitely jumping onto the bandwagon for this one. Our Atticus Grande Bag is a great way to add a pop of pink hues to your wardrobe without getting too wild! It's wide enough to keep all your bag-essentials and more. That's definitely got our thumbs up! Same goes for our Elyse Handy Sling Bag in Brown. It's really lightweight, and perfect for a lunch date out! If you'd like to even out the bright tones, then throw on our Taye Black Knight Dress and our Riona Rock Em' Boots in Black! They're perfect for neutralising your outfit palette, especially if you're not going for something too daring!

And there you have it! Those are some of our favourite spring colours this year, and a selection of our upcoming apparels and bags that reflect them! We hope you're just as excited as we are for a brand new month. As always, happy shopping, and take care! <3
