8 Spring Trends You Can Wear Now
Comfy, versatile and effortlessly cool, boilersuits are often made of a thicker cotton or denim fabric giving you all the utilitarian vibes come rain or shine. Layer with a bright roll-neck and boots to beat the chill, or pop open a button or two when it's warmer for a glimpse at a sleek silk vest underneath.
The White Shirt
If you don't already own a crisp white shirt, now is the time to christen your wardrobe with one of the most versatile pieces you’ll own. Not only can they smarten up cut-off jeans and trainers, or bring together a well-tailored suit, they can also be layered under chunky knits for extra warmth. Check, check, and check!
The Stonewash Jeans
Yes, stonewash jeans are back! And, before you panic, we're not talking about digging out your old acid-wash jeans circa 1980, but instead opt for these much more wearable styles that will see you through endless smart-casual looks from winter through to spring and summer.

The Flamenco Skirt
Even if you're not planning on joining a dance class anytime soon, the flamenco skirt is one of spring's most playful trends, and one we can't wait to wear. Whether you opt for a detailed maxi dress, like this gorgeous floral number from Rixo London, or a more classic ruffle skirt, style them with a big chunky knit and boots to balance out the practical with your inner senorita.
The Maxi Dress
Another gloriously easy-to-wear trend making a comeback is the boho-style maxi dress. Often floral and floaty, these feminine pieces are great for work, evening drinks or shopping at the weekend. Layer up with neutral polo-necks underneath, thick tights and a pair of boots for a chic little-house-on-the-Prarie look.
The Silk Piece
Introducing spring's most sophisticated and sultry trend: silk. We love the gorgeous range of molten metal hues like gold, gun-metal and deep navy currently making the fashion rounds. Update your wardrobe with luxurious separates – be it slip dresses, midi skirts, or pyjama-style shirts that can be layered with more masculine pieces in your wardrobe. Or, if you're feeling bold, fully embrace the trend with a fab silk suit.
The Power Blazer
This spring, tailoring is taking a turn for the bright, bold and beautiful. But if a full head-to-toe '80s fuschia suit isn't your thing, a stylish power blazer is a slightly more subtle way to tick off the trend. Choose a block colour to wear with your everyday basics, or brighten up denim with a stylish check or tartan.
The Cargo Jacket
With a nod to the emerging safari trend, the cargo jacket is making a return for spring. Great for layering under big winter coats on particularly cold days, or over cosy knits and floaty dresses; they're the perfect transitional piece. We'll be wearing ours with a lot of animal print.
