Today is officially the first day of spring (Yay!), which means that sunnier days are on the way. So pack those coats and boots away and get ready to transform your wardrobe with our 5 must-buy pieces.
Accessories are a great way of injecting sugary spring pastels into your wardrobe, particularly if you don’t fancy trying head-to-toe hues like Rihanna in her pink ensemble. Thankfully, Topshop has some classic courts to rival RiRi’s Holly Fulton beauties, and we’ll be rocking them with everything from jeans to midi skirts.
No longer just for school kids or backpackers, rucksacks have been given a glam metallic makeover, and are quickly becoming the must-have arm candy on the high street. We love blogger Audrey Rodgers’ New Look metallic zip front backpack and the way it adds a contemporary twist to her skirt suit. And, the spring version of this arm candy comes in glitzy gold or cool blue. Which one to buy?
A classic Burberry trench is a fashion fail-safe, and thankfully the high street is currently stocked with macs aplenty to help us nail this new season essential. Topshop’s purse-friendly piece is a no-brainer thanks to its designer vibes, and trust us when we say this is a staple you’ll be digging out time and again.
The skirt of the season sits mid calf and flares out with a lovely full circle shape. Dress it up with a cami for a glam night out or pair it with a simple white shirt for a relaxed off-duty look. We’re loving Daisy Lowe’s take on the trend. Her simple polo neck gives this ultra feminine look a contemporary update that we’re dying to recreate ourselves with this gorgeous Coast number.
If you don’t have a denim dress already then you’d better get your skates on. A tailored jean frock can easily be worked for most occasions, as is evident from the hoards of celebs we’ve spotted in this new ‘It’ buy. Head to Miss Selfidge for a dress even Alexa would love.
