It might not yet be the time to put away your winter coat for good, but as the sun makes its appearance more and more each day, it is hard to not want to throw on some of these gorgeous new summery pieces! When will we be able to make that transition from many layers to few? Why not begin a few projects already in anticipation of warmer days? The creative and crafty community will always make sure it is not defenceless when the time comes!

 

Midi Skirt and Tank

Jupe légère et t-shirt vitamines - Burda Style avril 2020

 

This breezy skirt in pastel vichy with full-length placket is adorned with pretty pleats to give it its full volume. It is a nod to the casual chic of Brigitte Bardot and the fashionable fifties. The bright yellow top to the right is the emblem of joy and sunny skies! We love its loose fit and easy-going style. The twisted straps add just that little extra detail, making this tank super charming.

 

Halter Top and Flowy Blouse

Top dos-nu et blouse vaporeuse - Burda Style avril 2020

 

Bare your shoulders this spring! And you’ll be keeping it classy thanks to the delicate criss-cross bodice and figure-flattering darts. The result? Simple, pretty and polished. Also, the stunning semi-transparent blouse to the right is a flowy dream. We love the tiny gathers around the cuff and bodice as well as the full-length placket from top to bottom!

 

Fit for Frolicking?

Dansante ou fourreau ? - Burda Style avril 2020

 

Or fine for catwalking? Why not both? Either are perfect for springtime follies! To the left, the dress in light viscose crepe with elastic waist is ideal for dancing! The simple cut and multi-coloured optical art pattern make this a great piece for work or play. And we are simply swooning over the bubble-gum pink bib dress to the right. It hugs the hips, flatters the figure and is furthermore embellished with a sweet back slit. Wear it solo for an in-vogue look or keep it causal by throwing it over a t-shirt.

 

Striped Dress and Patterned Tunic

Robe à rayures et tunique imprimée - Burda Style avril 2020

 

Prints and patterns are a preference for the spring season. The long, striped frock to the left slims any shape and the muted colours bring the elegance of this piece up just a notch. A simple belt around the waist pulls it all together. It is easy to make and can be fashioned together in an afternoon. The relaxed cut tunic to the right is also a stunner. The slightly gathered sleeves and tying band are two exceptionally beautiful details.

 

Bermudas and Stunning Frock

Bermuda à pinces et robe chic - Burda Style avril 2020

 

The perfect blend of sporty and chic. These bermuda-style shorts in muslin are adorned with darts along the leg to emulate the look of classic muslin slacks. The fun wide waistband and lovely looped belt are two details that make this model so unique. The dress to the right may look like a wrap, but surprise! It is a pencil-cut sheath. The simple wool fabric in grey and beige as well as the inlaid pleats at the waist give it a chic and refined look.

All of these models can be found in the April issue of Burda Style, in shops since March 13th!
