BC 303 SS16 A4 300dpi 39L

While recent appearances from the sun have been suggesting spring is on its way, the odd rainy, cool English day can still make getting dressed a challenge.

Enter Betty & Co, the casual, everyday brand from Betty Barclay that's here to solve your problems. With a young and feminine smart-casual style, be inspired by our favourite looks including on trend colours, wardrobe basics and transitional accessories that will allow you to layer up in style this season...






Russian Bohemia


While the weather is still on the cooler side, go bold with a darker, Russian-inspired colour scheme of greens and greys.

For true bohemian style, opt for abstract, soft prints in dresses and shirts. For a piece you can wear forever, we love this soft cardigan, perfectly paired with a striped scarf.





Sip of Orange


Channel a breezy, sunny spring afternoon (with or without a tropical cocktail in hand) with a colour scheme of wheat, Scandinavian birch green and pops of orange.

Folk-style embroidered blouses, tasselled scarves and t-shirts decorated with lace can brighten up even the darkest days as you head into summer.







For modern, individual pieces that work with each of the themes from the collection, go for Betty & Co's NOOS range.

Each piece has a special detail to make it stand out while still fitting with the colours of each season. We're lusting after the comfy, worn-in jeans, striped tops and clean-cut blouses in shades that remind us of clear blue skies that are headed our way.





Almost There


While not-quite-yet-summer outfits are incomplete without a cardigan or cosy wraparound, as you get further into the season, feminine and airy blouses, shirts and scarves will become your new best companion.

Cloudy, feather-light prints are the focus of this collection, with pastel blues, beiges and berry reds that will perfect even the most windblown look.





All Tied Up


Better weather often means a boost in energy, so why not reflect this in your wardrobe?

Spring-inspired blouses, playful overalls and modern denim designs are our picks from this collection, paired perfectly with graceful tile prints in soft oranges and subtle blues. All you need to do is grab your favourite pair of sunglasses...
