It's Spring, Let's Party!

It's Spring, Let's Party!

Whether it’s fashion, toys, tech or beauty there’s plenty of fun to be had during a spring party. We recommend the types of looks and fun you can be having as the weather starts to change. From gilets and parkas to keep the remnants of the winter out, to boosting the tan you’ve missed over the colder months, to great family activities: it’s all here for you in our handy guide.

Just like a newly budding plant we're beginning to poke our heads out of doors and glance at the sky. It looks like Spring is shaping up nicely. With temperatures getting bolder, the sun getting a wee bit less shy and lambs gambolling in the fields, it's high time we joined them for our own bit of March madness.

As we come out of our Winter hibernation, we've taken stock of what's going on around Ideal World and hand-picked the best products that make it easy to enjoy yourself as the weather gets warmer

First thing's first, if you're stepping out, you need to look the part. Start with these:

What to Wear

  • Puffa Gilet: It's the perfect weather for a sunny country walk, or a trip out for Sunday lunch. It might not quite be t-shirt weather yet but you can still stay snug by popping on our Puffa Gilet. Born of function but remaining popular in style, you can wear just about anything under a gilet, and it'll keep your body warm against a stiff breeze. Also perfect for accompanying kids to the park, or rambling through the fields as it allows a greater range of movement than a heavy jacket.
  • Luxe Parka: If you're planning for a more robust walk or a different look, pop on a parka. Our Luxe Parka has large pockets, stylish gold buttons and detailing, waistline seaming for a flattering look and a matching bag if you decide to go jacket-less.
  • What if it gets really bright, or you're traipsing home during the sunset? Nuspecs has you covered: any of the wide range of Nuspecs prescription glasses can be converted into sunglasses by choosing their sunglasses "tint" when ordering.
  • To complete the look, we recommend the Daisy Eldridge Dip Back Viscose Top, Cushion Walk Leather Loafers, and accessorise with a Floral Print Scarf.

Feel the Part

Winter can be fun: soups, sledges and snow, but months of heavy clothing and lots of indoors-time can sap the glamour out of anyone. We've got some tips to put it back.

  • Accelerate a healthy glow with Zhuzh. It Works with the natural melanin in your skin to boost your tan without looking fake or tacky, whilst moisturising at the same time.
  • Give yourself luscious legs: Cougar Airbrush Stockings are freedom for legs that have been locked away during the colder months, and makes them look perfect. Simply spray on and look like you're wearing stockings all day.
  • All over body: Finally, add a touch of sparkle with the He-Shi Luminous Shimmer for an all-over tan with that sun-kissed look.

What to do

  • Play in the Park: Taking a Mini Drone Quadcopter, some inflatable rockets or a catching game to the park can be a great way to pass the afternoon in the newfound sun.
  • Clean the Car: Or if you're the kind that likes to get chores done, you can use our excellent range to clean the car. We've got a Tyre Blackening Kit, Waterless Wash and Wax and get a super-shiny interior with the Cockpit Shine. All from Williams.
  • Have a BBQ: Our Patio Bistro Gas BBQ is a lightweight, portable way to get a real gas barbecue in your garden and start off the garden party season.
  • ...and don't forget dessert: With our Sweet Spot Ice Cream Maker you can make delicious ice-creams, frozen yoghurt, sorbet, gelato, slushies, margaritas and more.
