Knitted sweater vests are trending for a reason – they are the perfect layering item for this time of year. Wear with trainers and, of course, accessorise with the largest bunch of flowers you can carry.

Upgrade white jeans to pleated trousers: they’re an elegant alternative to denim that look perfect teamed with shades of tan and toffee brown.

A leopard print miniskirt and black patent Mary Janes are a very French nod to summer dressing. Finish the look with a pinstriped blazer and a white T-shirt: easy and elegant. 

It’s officially white blouse season! Whether you go all out with lace, take the vintage route with a frilled style, or try a trendy puff-sleeve iteration, it’s a quick and easy way to embrace romantic dressing.

Embrace joyful dressing by clashing colours and textures. We love how Sarah Corbett Winder mixes high shine, velvet and knitted fabrics all in the one outfit.

A white cotton poplin skirt and red ballet flats nod to spring’s microtrends. Layer up with a knit and a cropped jacket to keep warm between showers.

A pair of Bermudas are a perfect stopgap between trousers and shorts. Team with kitten heels and a rugby-inspired stripe top for Saturday brunch.

If you’re going to go monochrome (that is, dressing in just one colour) embrace cream on cream, it’s a classic combination that always looks ultra-expensive. Look for a silk or column skirt in the shade, as seen on style influencer Anouk Yve.

A silk or satin camisole, with sheer detailing, and a black tuxedo jacket are an infallible pairing for when you want to look polished: whether it’s for summer cocktails, or simply enjoying a coffee and some people watching. Add a zinging red heel for a pop of colour.

A quilted spring jacket – this one is by SEA but shop an edit of ones we love here – is a fail-safe staple for this time of year. The style you choose can be as bright and bold as you like, but if you’re feeling shy of colour opt for one with a white background and flashes of delicate detailing.
