Timeless Spring Style Essentials from Luisa Via Roma
As we move into a new season, we look to those key pieces in our wardrobes that will transition our outfits seamlessly into Spring. As ever, I always look to invest in more classic and timeless styles, that will remain key parts of my wardrobe for many years to come, and at the forefront of my mind is the price per wear. Yes, my favourite equation of the price I pay, divided by the number of potential future wears – the more versatile an item is, the better, so I opt for pieces within a fairly neutral colour palette that will work perfectly with the majority of my existing wardrobe.
What better way to celebrate the start of the new season, than with a sale! Hurrah! We can choose those beautiful investment pieces from designer online retailer Luisa Via Roma, and enjoy a 15% discount using the code APPRL15. I’ve chosen a selection of my favourites to inspire you (including my favourite boots of the moment; the (6) Prada Riding Boots!) , all of which I believe to be the kind of staple pieces to invest in now, and cherish for many a season.
A ruffle knit is perfect for transitioning into the Spring months, you could wear this Zimmerman Ruffle Knit (1) with the leggings you’ve been wearing all Winter to give the outfit an instant uplift, or perhaps over that floral silk dress that you’ve been desperate to wear, but you need just an added touch of warmth. A classic bag roomy enough for all of your Spring and Summer essentials, is the Loewe Pochette Raffia Shoulder Bag (2), coming in at under £500, it’s on the more affordable side of the scale when it comes to designer bags, and yes, you can get 15% off on top of the already tempting price! I’ve been a fan of the Zimmerman shorts (3) for years now, and if I treat myself to this pair of floral embroidered linen shorts, they will be my 4th pair! The silhouette and cut of them is so flattering and elegant, and they work so well with a variety of blouses and top styles during the warmer months.
A large tote bag will come in handy for all of the outdoor explorations we will enjoy in life after lockdown, and I’ve had my eyes on the Saint Laurent tote (4) for a little while now, and this discount is the final push I needed to finally make the investment! Roomy enough for everything I need for a day in the garden or in the park with friends, or perhaps even a glamorous day to the beach! Something else that’s seriously tempting me is this elegant pair of wool and silk crepe shorts from Valentino (5) – seriously – how elegant are they!! I just adore them and would wear them with knits during the cooler start to the season, and then with elegant billowing blouses as we enjoy the warmer summer months.

Now, this Zimmerman Ruffle Top (7) looks like a real statement piece, but let me tell you – the amount of times that I have been putting an outfit together and wished for a top like this, I have lost count! Whether pairing with the Zimmerman shorts, or with jeans for a truly fabulous take on ‘Jeans and a nice top’ – it’s a piece that instantly adds fun and personality to the most simple of outfits.
The cross body bag is a favourite style of mine, choose your daily essentials and then go about your day hands free, with this elegant finishing touch to your outfit. The Prada styles are on my wishlist this Spring season, this Canvas and Leather bag (8) is one which will work with every outfit on rotation, from my elegant shorts and blouse combos, to my more relaxed countryside attire outfits, for mornings at Soho Farmhouse or at the farmer’s market!
Last but not least, a pair of brown leather boots with a small heel is so incredibly practical; an elegant ‘lift’ and yet still comfortable enough to walk in all day, and again work to elevate those more casual outfits, this pair from Salvatore Ferragmo (9) ticks all the boxes.
So, what will you be investing in for your Spring wardrobe?
