After adding colour and print, there's another fun way to switch up your minimal spring style: by playing with proportions. It's probably the most tricky one, especially if you're a fellow flat shoe lover, as things can quickly look rather unflattering. That's why it's important to pay attention to the fabric. Especially with this season's trend piece - the culotte - I would always opt for flowier, lighter versions to wear with flats, as it adds movement. When fabric moves it will show a hint of your actual silhouette, which avoids that "chunky" look.

To be honest, my first thought was to pair them with some heeled sandals (because: see above + I like an elongated leg), but since I hardly ever wear heels anymore I figured I should stick to the shoes I actually wear regularly. The bluchers and the trench are menswear inspired, but the tight crop top and sliver of skin add feminity. It's the perfect balance!
