Spring is here! Dig up your favorite clothes out of storage and start mixing and matching, as you no longer have to hide yourself in thick long coats and chunky scarves that cover your pretty face. We have selected 10 items to dress you up from head to toe for an entire week.

 

H&M Knitted Cardigan

First, you will of course need a simple and comfortable cardigan. This spring weather changes as quickly as a teenage girl's mood, so having an extra warm layer will be useful.

Chiffon Long-Sleeved Blouse

A white shirt is always nice and matches with almost everything. And you will always look professional in it. Make sure to wear a nude bra underneath!

ZARA Wide Leg Pants

A nice bright pair of pants will lift up your mood, even if you got up on the wrong side of the bed.

ZARA Women's Long Dress

Mix your look up with a professional, but not boring black dress. It will not only bring you the joy of comfort, but the power-look as well.

Women's Skinny Jeans

We often hear that jeans are not welcome in strict offices, but nowadays you’ll find them in many work places. Match them with shirts and blouses to keep your look professional, yet casual.

ZARA Stiletto Shoes

Stilettos, what would we do without them? They are not the most comfortable choice as we all know, but they are so pretty, and they will bring your outfit to a whole new level of stylish and chic!

PUMA Women's Casual Shoes

A pair of pure white sneakers will help you recover from the stiletto days. Your feet will love you and your style will still be nice and work-ready, with a touch of casual. Sounds perfect, right?

C&K Small Square Bag

Women love bags. It’s a fact, but it is also a fact that you will forget something important in the “other bag”. So keeping one bag for the week is a good idea, as you won't have to spend 10 extra minutes every morning just to assure that your keys, your favorite lipstick, your cards…etc. are with you.

Statement Earrings

Accessories are a must. If you’re not keen on accessories, or have no time to choose or untangle the mess of a necklace, earrings will be your best friends.

Leopard Earrings

They stay on all day, they don’t mess with your hair, they don’t get stuck anywhere, and they add that chic look to your style.

A qipao (also known as the cheongsam) is a traditional Chinese feminine and slim-fitting dress that is believed to have originated during the Manchu reign in China.

History

Qipaos began to grow in popularity in the 1920s and was worn by socialites in Shanghai up until the 1950s, where it was considered unacceptable during the Cultural Revolution. In the 1980s it rose back to prominence, making appearances in films, the runway and is even accepted as formal attire.

Design

Most of the qipao styles on the market today take inspiration from the style worn by Shanghai socialites in the 1920s and 1930s, considered by many to be a symbol of female liberation. They have a high collar and are slim and form fitting. They typically have a slit on the side and the sleeve length and style varies.

Color

For everyday, more casual wear, women generally choose light colors or subdued floral patterns. Red, bright yellow and purple are traditionally worn by royalty or for special occasions. In China, red qipaos are commonly worn for weddings, and white qipaos are worn for funerals.

Material

Qipaos are typically made from linen, polyester, cotton or silk. They can also be embroidered with pearls and other decorations.

How To Transition To A More Adult Wardrobe

When you reach your mid-twenties, you might find your miniskirts, crop tops and bandage dresses pushed to the back of your closet while you desperately search for something nice to wear to a job interview or meeting. Transitioning from a younger, more casual wardrobe to one that is a bit more professional and adult can be tricky, but we've put together some basic essentials every grown-ass woman needs. Check them out below!

Dresses

Replace any see-through, extra tight or cleavage heavy dresses with something more versatile. A good dress will take you from a busy day at the office to a classy date with the right accessories.

Blazers

A blazer instantly makes your look more professional and put together. Say goodbye to your loose-fitting, oversized jackets and opt for something that is fitted just right on your shoulders and torso.

Blouses & Shirts

It's time to move on from crop tops and that t-shirt you have with the sassy quote on it! A nice blouse is great for any professional setting, and they have a loose yet more structured fit if you're feeling bloated but still want to look put together. A crop top won't be quite as forgiving...

Pants

We all love our worn-in jeans and leggings, and there's no reason to say good bye to them just yet. But there are many situations you'll encounter as an adult where you can't wear something so casual. A pair of fitted dress pants will instantly elevate your outfit, and are the perfect alternative for any occasion where jeans just aren't appropriate.

Bags

Donate sparkly handbags, bags covered in brand logos/names, shapeless backpacks and tote bags to a teenage girl in need. It's now time for a chic, timeless bag you'll own for years and can fit all of your essentials in.

Shoes

Make some room among your sneakers, combat boots and those sky-high heels you bought for clubbing for more professional, classic footwear that won't get you a weird look at the office.
