One of the most versatile fashion pieces this spring is the statement sweatshirt. It’s not as heavy as a knit and not as light as a T-shirt. It’s perfect to snazz up a pair of jeans with some heels or you can wear it with a skirt (pencil, A-line, full and mini). Mixing this sports-luxe look of the season with the ladylike trend creates a nice ‘relaxed-feminine’ look. It is the perfect top to see you through from an early spring chill to a summer cover up.
The new look slouchy trench coat will look chic as well as keeping you dry in unexpected rainfalls and cooler evenings. It is less structured than the traditional trench so it is better suited to milder weather when you want lighter layering and more breathable fabrics. Wearing it open and loose as if you have thrown it on at the last minute will look effortlessly chic.
Neat ankle boots are the ideal, versatile footwear for ‘in-between weather’. They will work for both rainy and sunnier spring days too. In milder weather, team them with sheer or light opaque tights (because the legs aren’t quite ready to go bare yet) and a skirt with layered tops. If you buy a really smart pair they will be acceptable for work (depending on the company and sector, of course) and you will be spot on trend too.
