For those of us in the Southern Hemisphere, spring is just weeks away and I’m sure I speak for the majority of us when I say, we cannot wait. I don’t know about you, but I’m over the rainy days and the shades of grey – bring on the colour and sunshine!

It’s an exciting time when SS14 runways are happening each week, with images of Australian designers showcasing their take on the seasonal trends dominating your instagram feed.

What’s even more exciting however is seeing these trends appear in store, ready for you to purchase your first outfit for the season.

From pleated skirts and sheer fabrics to crop tops and floral hues, below are my top 3 picks for the first purchases to your spring wardrobe by some super talented Australian brands (and shoes you just gotta wear them with).

1. Wallflowers Column Dress – Manning Cartell.

This dress is the perfect party dress for the SS14 season; the pink tone adds a feminine touch while the cut-out provides a racy edge. Pair this look with the timeless (and totally worth the investment) Saint Laurent Jane leather sandals from net-a-porter for a bang on trend look. 

2. Vector Dress – Camilla and Marc

Spotted on the likes of Jessica Gomes, this dress is a spring staple. The beautiful contrast of florals and snake print makes this dress like no other, and the small cut out at the back provides the perfect amount of skin for this look. Add some Valentino Rockstuds from net-a-porter for the ultimate spring look.

3. 'The Twiggy' Sheath – Carla Zampatti

The little white dress is just important as the little black dress, so why not invest in one while the sun is out. This dress is the perfect work to drinks number and will get you through many seasons with its timeless design. Add your favourite black pumps for the perfect monochromatic look, or add some colour with a pair of bright sandals like these Sophia Webster stunners.

Add your gorgeous smile, unique personality and bring on the sunshine baby!
