Stepping into Spring with Dove

This year, Dove showcased a celebration of colour with its flaunt 100 Colours with Confidence campaign.

The campaign embodies ‘Dove 100 Colours’ - a line of Dove products that has been tested on 100 colours with the claim of leaving no white marks on garments.

Now, all women can flaunt their 100 colours with confidence without the fear of white deodorant stains on their favourite garments, thanks to Dove Invisible Dry.

Not only is it the perfect companion to your vibrant spring wardrobe, Dove Invisible Dry helps empower every woman to feel confident in their 100 colours.

Blogger and ‘mominfluencer’ Thando Naves, and fashion and lifestyle extraordinaire Ms Paula Bee, have been using Dove Invisible Dry as their go-to fashion accessory, allowing them to make colourful wardrobe choices whilst providing their underarms with superior care through Dove’s ¼ moisturizing cream product technology

Each with their own busy lives and careers, these women know how to look stylish on the go. With a new season upon us, we collaborated with Thando and Paula on their most trusted styling tips, fashion trends, and favourite wardrobe staples and essential items for Spring.

Ms Paula Bee

How would you describe your personal style?

My style is minimalist and chic with a hint of edge. Although I keep it neutral, I experiment within that colour palette, and that’s what makes it edgy too.

With Spring upon us, what are your favourite fashion trends for the season?

I am loving loose dresses for spring. Anything that is free-flowing and has bell-sleeves will be my go-to. Linen sets are a yes from me, and I think they’re going to be everywhere for spring and summer. Lastly, I think Adidas Sambas will still be trending this season. They pair well with linen pants and denim maxi skirts.

Do you have any tips for trans-seasonal dressing?

Keep your colour palette simple, that way you can mix and match all your items. I also think that trench coats are the perfect pieces for trans-seasonal dressing because you can pair it with anything, and it’ll do the job of elevating your look while keeping you warm. LOVE a trench coat all year round.

Do you have fashion tips for busy women on-the-go?

Having a good outfit foundation is key for when you’re on-the-go. Make sure you bring along a blazer and a change of shoes, and that’s all you need. You’ll be able to elevate your look from day to night, or casual to formal in a minute.

What are the must-have items in your handbag for Spring?

  • A soft yet feminine perfume.
  • Vaseline petroleum jelly (always!) as it keeps my lips hydrated in all seasons.
  • My Dove Body love cream.
  • I always make it a point to include my Dove Invisible Dry Deodorant.

What are three wardrobe staples you’d recommend for anyone?

A great pair of jeans that suits your body shape, a trench coat that is in a neutral colour so you can pair it with everything. And lastly, a great pair of comfy sneakers that you can wear all day.

Is there a current fashion trend you can’t seem to get behind?

Bermuda denim shorts. I can’t get behind the trend only because it doesn’t suit my body shape. They look so good on some people, but unfortunately, I’m not that girl.

What do you love most about Spring fashion?

The loose-fitting clothes and beautiful pastel prints. I also love how girly spring can be - maxi dresses and pretty prints filled with hues of pink, lilac, and white. Gorg!

What does your ideal Spring Day look like?

Who doesn’t love a picnic? My ideal Spring Day would be on a wine farm - a picnic basket filled with my favourite charcuterie board and some yummy bubbles/rosé. I’d love for it to be a group of friends all dressed in stunning Spring-inspired outfits and soft music playing in the background. At this point, I am just describing the perfect Bridgerton day. Haha!

How would you describe your personal style?

I would describe my style as constantly evolving as I grow into myself. Now I find myself enjoying a simple and feminine personal style.

With Spring upon us, what are your favourite fashion trends for the season?

I’m going to be embracing lavender as a statement colour in my closet this Spring. It’s both fresh and calming. Joining that will be sculptural bags, skirt suits, and pocketed dresses.

Do you have fashion tips for busy women on the go?

  • De-clutter your closet regularly so you can keep track of what you have and keep only what you need.
  • Schedule regular trips to the tailor and dry cleaner. That way, your clothes will be ready to wear when you need them.
  • Always prepare your outfit options and accessories the night before.
  • Keep a jacket, accessories, and a versatile pair of shoes in your car, in case you need to switch up your outfit at short notice.

What are the must-have items in your handbag for Spring?

  • A fresh fragrance like Christian Dior’s Dioriviera
  • My Dove Invisible Dry Deo for on-the-go freshness.
  • Wet wipes
  • Mint
  • An SPF50 sunscreen and hand lotion

What are three wardrobe staples you’d recommend for anyone?

  • A crisp white shirt that can take you from the boardroom to dinner with the girls or date night.
  • A fitted blazer that compliments your body shape and multiple outfits in your closet.
  • A pair of flattering high-waisted trousers that you can mix and match for both formal and casual looks.

What do you love most about Spring fashion?

Returning to colour, it’s an instant mood lifter. I love the lighter fabrics and the opportunity to have fun with layering for the cooler days and evenings.

What does your ideal Spring Day look like?

It would start with a yoga class outside, followed by brunch in a sunny spot and an all-day picnic with my girlfriends!
