The wrap skirt
We’re so happy that the wrap skirt is sticking around! It’s super flattering and versatile too, dress it down during the day with sandals or amp up the glamour in the evening with a pair of gorgeous heels. This style, £55 from Topshop, incorporates spring’s pastel trend and allows you to show a little – or a lot – of leg!
The striped trouser
Stripes have had a fresh update with stronger, bolder designs. Opt for vertical lines which will elongate your figure and slim your frame. We love this pair from M&S, they’re £35 and come in three leg lengths. Team them with a neutral top and let the trousers be the statement piece.
The saddle bag
It’s the must have handbag for spring combining fashion and function…it doesn’t get much better! There are lots of shapes and colours available on the high street but for a classic design that won’t date try this chic grey, cross body style, £25 from Very
The shirt dress
It’s a wardrobe staple and a real figure flatterer. Belted styles nip in the waist and skim over the hips and thighs, whilst bold printed designs like this one from Zara, £39.99, are great at disguising any lumps and bumps.
It’s the shoe of the season and a great transitional piece as we head into the warmer months. This pair, £50 from Next, have a covered toe and a low heel making them great for work or the weekend.
The Statement Earring
Accessories are an easy and inexpensive way to update your look. Don’t be afraid to make a statement with your jewellery during the day, this pair, £5 from ASOS will look great worn with a crisp white shirt and jeans.

The khaki cargo pant
These are a great everyday trouser working well with the basic pieces in your wardrobe – think knits, shirts, & denim jackets. Khaki is also big news this spring and the cargo pant is an easy way to try this trend. This slim leg pair, £39.50, from Per Una at M&S, are a flattering fit and also come in three leg lengths – so no alterations required!
The floral blouse
Florals are a given at springtime and high street clothes are currently packing some serious flower power. We love the darker tones of this beautiful blouse, £69 from Warehouse , it’s a little unexpected and toughens up a traditionally more feminine style.

Suede is everywhere at the moment – from skirts, to dresses and even tops. We particularly love the classic suede jacket and will be investing in this minimal style, £59.99 from Mango. It’s the perfect light cover up for the new season, just watch out for those spring showers…we recommend protecting your suede with a suitable protector spray!
