Lisa Fitzpatrick’s Spring Tips with Navan Town Centre
The arrival of spring means that we can say goodbye to wooly jumpers, warm tights and dark colours. With spring comes pretty florals and of course pops of bright colour to bring some life back to our wardrobe. I’ve had a look at some shops in Navan Town Centre to see what the biggest trends of spring are. I’ve pulled a mix of my favourite accessories, clothes and home ware items. So, begin your spring clean of your wardrobe and treat yourself to some pieces I’m coveting!
Pretty in Pastels:
We’ve spent most of the winter wearing a lot of black and while I do love some classic black clothing, it’s time to put some colour into our wardrobe now.Pastel colours are perfect if you want some colour in your wardrobe but nothing too bright. Pastels are quite versatile and look lovely paired with white and grey.This Escandelle PU Leather Jacket from Carraig Donn is the perfect pop of pastel while keeping you warm during those spring chills. I also think this Vila top stocked in Lipstick is beautiful. This top would look great paired with white jeans or black leather look trousers. The frill on the bottom of the top makes this a perfect, flirty top for spring outings.
Leather Jacket €74.95/ Collar Top €19.95
Like every season there are some key pieces that are essential in our wardrobe and spring is no different. Key pieces are items of clothing that will form the bones of your wardrobe and will be the most important items. They are versatile and can be mixed and matched with other pieces meaning you’ll get plenty of wear.
First up, these ripped white jeans from River Island are a spring must. As I mentioned above pastel colours go wonderful with white jeans. Spring and summer are really the only times we get to wear these type of coloured jeans, so they are perfect for any events or parties you may be attending.
This khaki coloured embroidered jacket also from River Island is another must. Embroidery is a huge trend this season. While we don’t need to continue wearing our winter coat, there is usually still a chill in the air. This jacket is stylish, yet practical and will keep you warm throughout the spring.
A new season calls for new clothes for nights out. Continue the pastel look late into the night with this velvet pastel pink dress from Belle Amour. I love the structure on this dress, especially the high neck. If you’re looking for something a little different, check out this playsuit also from Belle Amour. The V-neck style is very flattering and the style of the top combined with the long black trousers.

Special Spring Occasions:
Spring marks the start of the wedding season, along with plenty of communions and confirmations to attend as well as of course, Ladies Day at the races. Attending any of these events? Prepys have got you covered for all your accessory needs.
I love fascinators to add some extra style to my outfit. There is such a variety of style that you are always bound to find something to suit your taste and of course to match your dress. I’ve picked out some of my favourites from Prepys. Simple yet stylish this blue fascinator with feather details is not too overbearing and would look lovely with hair styled to the side. I also love this fuchsia coloured fascinator also styled with a feather detail. I could see this winning best dressed prize at the races!
In order to compliment your outfit, clutch bags are the way to go. Prepys have a wonderful Lulu Guinness style lip shaped clutch bag.
