It’s time for a fresh start and new beginnings. Discover our new season's wardrobe heroes
After what seems the longest winter ever, spring is finally here, with the promise of long, sunny days having fun with friends and family. It’s a time for fresh starts and new ideas, for casting off winter’s heavy layers and embracing the warmer weather. Investing in a new dress is the perfect way to welcome in the new season and will give you an instant post-winter pick me up. Layer up for now with knits: a classic roll neck worn underneath nineties-style, or a sweet cashmere cardigan for a luxe feel.
Don’t fancy a dress? This striking floral co-ord is a great alternative. The floral shirt and matching trousers are available separately but wear together for maximum impact.
Spring means playing outside after school, trips to the park, walks in the woods, or hanging out den-building in the back garden, so having the right kit is a must. Kids need comfortable, sturdy clothes to pull on, that can survive the bumps and scrapes that serious play brings with it – but that look good too. This sweet fresh-as-a-daisy green checked blouse is the perfect mix between comfort and style, team with everyday blue jeans to toughen up for after-school games. Spring still has its chills, so layer T-shirts for added warmth and keep a hoodie or lightweight jacket close to hand.
Switching to lighter colours is a great way to shrug off winter and to dial down to a more spring-like way of dressing. Swap black and navy for neutrals such as stone, ecru and light grey to ring in the seasonal changes. A blazer is an effortless way to nail the smart-casual dilemma and it doesn’t have to feel stuffy, leave the tie and formal shirt at home and embrace a pop of invigorating print to boost your mood. Layer a trusty white tee underneath for a welcome extra layer when the sun disappears behind a cloud.
