Okay people, we’ve got some great news.

Not only is today the first day of spring (yay!) but Zalando.ch – a site that we wholly recommend for their easy (and free!) return shipping – wants to help one of our readers get inspired to update their wardrobe with a 75 chf giftcard good for any purchase on the site!

As Lausanne residents know all too well, spring can be a difficult fashion season – we want to pick up on the fresh, colorful trends and lightweight fabrics that we see in ads, but the truth is, it can remain chilly well into June. We’ll save the skirts for summer and stick to striking pants (trousers for our British friends) for the time being!

We took a gander on Zalando and put together a wishlist of our own. Here are a few of the looks we would pick if we were lucky enough to win Zalando’s giveaway (…wait, we can enter, right? ;)…)

1. 7 for all mankind 2. Anna Field 3. Clarks (you know we love a comfortable wedge) 4. Michael Kors 5. Replay 6. Crosby Derek Lam 7. BOSS Orange

For a chance to win, leave a comment below telling us what spring trend you are looking forward to incorporating into your wardrobe. Share the post on social media (Twitter and Facebook) for additional chances to win! Winner will be announced on Wednesday March 26.

Good luck! And here’s to being fashion forward this spring!


  1. Less black, bit more colour (maybe?!)…
    But definitely lighter fabrics and (getting ahead of myself I know, but) summer dresses 🙂

  2. Love spring dresses with a cropped leather or jean jacket. Can't wait 🙂

  3. I can't wait for flirty skirts with bold & fresh colourful tops (I'm loving the pastel trend too – it is very fresh!). I will complete the look with comfy sandals and sunnies!

  4. I love your initiative! I can’t wait to get new ideas 🙂

    For me, spring is colour colour colour!

    Loose airy shirt that slides on the skin http://fr.zalando.ch/patrizia-pepe-top-noir-p1421d02k-q11.html
    Time to put away those dark coloured jackets and go for total white! http://fr.zalando.ch/mint-berry-manteau-court-blanc-m3221h02n-a11.html
    and of course, sunglasses to welcome the new light!!
    (and why not play with them like here? http://fr.zalando.ch/prada-lunettes-de-soleil-marron-p2451e008-t11.html )
    and sometimes a sexy dress to show off without coats 🙂 http://fr.zalando.ch/lipsy-robe-fourreau-beige-li721c055-916.html

  5. I'm looking forward to getting out the shorts and t-shirts for cycling and running 🙂 Bright colours to contrast the blues of the lake/sky and the greens of the vineyards. And Zalando.ch have a great colection of sporting wear.

  6. I can't wait to get my hands on a pastel coloured bag!
    All I see is these collections of oh-so-pretty pastel pink/green/yellow bags which would fit perfectly with pastel ballerinas and a summer dress! 🙂

  7. I am excited about mixing up the sporty spring trend, combining things like sweatpants and nikes/new balances with other pieces!

  8. To me, spring fashion is like a blooming flower; at first you pair up your coat with brighter scarfs and then, as the sun gets warmer, you peal off jumpers, trousers and boots to reveal twizzling pastel midi-skirts, light romantic blouses and peachy-coloured lips that make freckles pop!

  9. I'm sooo excited about all the S/S 2014 fashion trends: all those delicate and romantic pastels; the bright neons; all of these colours paired with my fav navy stripes (nautical is going to be a big trend this season) and some very feminine sandals or wedges (S/S 2014 is the come back year for sandals)!! Let's not forget the midi skirts and oversized tshirts coupled with very feminine accessorizes (delicate or statement)!

  10. looking forward to wearing floral tops, pastels and summer dresses!

    I think it's all about going bright and wild with some daring combinations. Get ready for bright orange meets bright pink, and electric green and blues will merge to show spring we are ready and waiting!

  12. I'm looking forward to wear cute (perhaps flowery patterned) bright coloured dresses, flowy light coloured skirts, comfortable flats and a good pair of shorts.

  13. I'll add more ethnic stuff. Just to get some more colors to my summer wardrobe.

  14. Can't wait for lightweight dresses, sandals, and wedges (just a bit obsessed 🙂 )
