Your Takapuna spring fashion guide

Spring has well and truly sprung out there, and with warmer days and lighter evenings, you may well be thinking it’s time for a wardrobe refresh. Celebrate leaving hibernation by getting some sun on your skin and your knees in the breeze. Here are our top fashion picks for the 2022 spring season.

The short and short of it

No matter who you are, shorts are one of your absolute warm-weather-wear essentials. Comfy, versatile, and they don’t blow up around your ears when a frisky spring breeze swishes by. Federation’s range of bright and bold kid’s shorts brings all the joy to your next warm weekend, and we are absolutely loving the skirt-but-not-a-skirt vibes of this gem, the La La Short.

Amazon’s selection ranges from board and swim shorts to fashion shorts. We love this comfy and classy high-waisted cotton pair of Nunui Today Shorts, and men can rock a low-key ‘60s vibe in these bad boys, the Billabong Sundays Low Tide Boardshorts.

Barkers takes shorts fashion up a notch with like these classic tan Kingly Chino Shorts, and Sutton Dress Shorts perfect to wear to a spring wedding, the races, or a company barbecue. 

Sun’s out guns out

It’s time to start braving the short sleeve and letting the sun hit our forearms for the first time in months. Federation has some of the hottest tees around, like this super cute puff sleeve number perfect for the office. 

Feel perpetually in the picnic mood in this Gingham V Neck Puff Short Sleeve Blouse from Glassons, and this tropical Scotch & Soda short-sleeved shirt from Life for Men is everything we want in a springtime look.

Dress to impress

The best part about dresses is their adaptability. Try something with a sleeve for cooler evenings, like this ultra-chic Asymmetric Neck Dress from Cue, or celebrate a balmy spring day with this joyful green Louise Dress from Kilt. A good maxi dress like this one from Country Road will put you right in the holiday mood, while this denim shirt dress from Decjuba will take you right through to a night on the town.
