What to wear now

Although the sun has been making an appearance (hooray!), the weather can still be a little unpredictable with April showers and chilly spells. Stay prepared with these transitional pieces that will see you through spring and into the summer... 

Women

 

Ruffle-hem shorts and open-toe mules may not be designed for chilly spring days or April showers – but that doesn’t mean you can’t start to incorporate some new season trends into your every day look.

Layering is key for the seasonal shift, which means it’s possible to make some pieces work from now through to the height of summer. For example, a punky floral dress can easily be teamed with tights, boots and a jacket on cooler days or worn with a pair of sandals when the weather warms up. Think about how the new items you buy can multitask!

Make sure you have plenty of jacket options for the unpredictable weather - we recommend investing in a lightweight, longline trench and a denim jacket with embroidery or ruffle detailing.  So 2017!

Men

 

Hold the beachwear and short-sleeve shirts for now! Focus on the other big menswear trends for SS17, such as neutral hues and bomber jackets.

Stone coloured hoodies are everywhere at the moment and will become a staple in your wardrobe during the spring. They go with everything, look effortlessly cool and play into the athleisure look that’s still firmly on the fashion radar.

On days when you need an extra layer, a bomber jacket is the perfect option. Bomber jackets are super versatile, as they look great with jeans, joggers and shorts. Pick one up now, and wear it all year round!
