Braintree Rachel Spring Outfits

At this time of year, it can be really difficult to know what to wear. It’s still chilly – even cold at times – yet the days are getting lighter, longer and we can almost feel the promise of warmer weather.

So with this putting us in an outfit tight spot, we asked Rachel, our Creative Director, to share five pieces that make putting spring outfits together just that bit easier. The best bit is that every piece she picked can be worn now and for seasons to come. Over to Rachel…

1. THE RHONA RAE TUNIC

Braintree Spring Outfits - Top Picks 2

I love, love this tunic, it looks and feels fresh and comes in a soft and pretty shade of blue. Plus, anything with pockets always gets my vote. Wear it now with a pair of our beautiful bamboo leggings and throw on a Hip Zip Throw to keep chills at bay. Wear it later with bare legs and super-cute brogues when the weather is hot.

2. THE DIXIE DENIM SHIRT DRESS

Braintree Spring Outfits - Top Picks 1

Denim is having a real moment this spring and I think our Dixie dress not only embodies this trend, but is a really comfortable, practical style as well. I love it styled as we have in this shot – with our cute dot footless tights (made from bamboo, of course!) I sometimes wear my Dixie dress as a top-to-toe denim look, layered over our organic cotton jeans. Don’t laugh… double denim is a fashion dream!

3. THE ZEPHIRA ORGANIC CARDI

Braintree Spring Outfits - Top Picks 3

A splash of colour is always a good idea and especially so for spring. Any of our knitwear styles are a lovely way to introduce colour to your outfit, but the Zephira cardi is my favourite. There are four shades to choose from and each one is soft, pastel and pretty. Being made from our organic cotton means that the yarn is particularly soft and satisfying on the skin too. My sand-hued Zephira cardi fits snugly into my handbag so it’s always within reach.

4. THE ALWAYS-INTERESTING SCARF

Braintree Spring Outfits - Top Picks 4

I love, love, love our bamboo scarves and we have so many pretty colours and new patterns to choose from. Scarves are an affordable, cheerful way to update any outfit, which means you can keep collecting and interchanging them. I love the bohemian, Stevie Nicks-inspired feel of draping scarves in my home too, over lamps, as a table cover and on the side of mirrors!

5. THE DASHKA THROW

Braintree Spring Outfits - Top Picks 5

This is the ultimate in layering – this style is part of our loungewear range BE but I wear it all the time, seriously all the time. It comes in my favourite fabric of ours, bamboo stretch, which is a little bit thicker than our regular bamboo jersey and has that slight give so it just feels gorgeous on your skin.

I have this throw in both the indigo colour and the print. The indigo hue goes with everything and I take it everywhere with me. I wear the printed throw for yoga, but it also looks great with my jeans and a long vest underneath. Layer these throws up, wear them your way, but trust me; you will live in this style!
