British Summertime officially kicked in yesterday, and though we don’t have the sunshine to prove it this morning, we sure have the bleary eyes (we want our hour back, by the way).
But what this means, of course, is that spring has officially sprung, and to get you in the mood for the sun-filled months ahead, our editor’s been compiling her list of new-season must-haves to make sure you’re on your way to style stardom this summer.
See below for her top picks that’ll have you walking on sunshine, even when the sky’s a little cloudy.
Boutique by Jaeger stripe scallop dress, £130, available at Jaeger. BUY NOW!
I’m all about detail this season, and I love Boutique by Jaeger’s scallop trim on its stripe dress – it’s the perfect way to add subtle interest to a simple spring staple.
Tangerine pleat shorts, £30, available at Topshop. BUY NOW!
A pair of softly tailored shorts are one of the most versatile pieces you’ll own. Topshop’s tangerine pair will put a zingy zest in my step all season long.
Peacock dress with embroidery, £195, available at Reiss. BUY NOW!
A white lace dress is my wardrobe fail-safe. I’ll be wearing this one from Reiss throughout spring while I attempt my best Gisele impression, and I’ll take it with me to autumn with the addition of black opaques – my staple wear-everywhere piece.
See by Chloe navy cut-out platforms, £267, available at my-wardrobe.com. BUY NOW!
I can’t get enough of chunky shoes – the higher the better. See by Chloe’s navy cut-out sandals will provide a vibrant splash of colour, but their wooden block platform will prove ever-versatile. I’ll wear mine with cute ankle socks and a simple dress for a preppy edge come summer.
Thierry Lasry Lingery handmade sunglasses, £300, available at Browns. BUY NOW!
Add a retro vibe to your spring style with a pair of rounded tortoise shell sunglasses – I love Thierry Lasry’s throw-back sunnies; ideal for adding extra edge to the simplest of outfits this season.
Bex Rox wolf ring, £195, available at Browns. BUY NOW!
A statement gold ring can transform your look from bland to bling. Bex Rox’s gold wolf ring is the perfect partner to this season’s brights with a splash of whimsy thrown in for good measure.
A-line denim skirt, £32, available at Topshop. BUY NOW!
Give staple denim a new season twist by means of a skirt this spring – it’ll work wonderfully with a silk blouse to channel sweet Seventies style and it’s more forgiving than a pair of shorts. I’ll wear this one from Topshop with everything from tees to evening tops all season long.
Deborah Lippmann Supermodel nail lacquer, £14, available at House of Fraser. BUY NOW!
I love making a statement with painted nails. Deborah Lippmann’s red-orange is just the colour to make a vibrant splash this season.
French Connection weave mini bag, £62, available at French Connection. BUY NOW!
French Connection’s mini weave bag is a great way to add texture to spring outfits. I love its neutral colour and materials; a contemporary update on a classic style.
Jaeger London pleat suede skirt, £460, available at my-wardrobe.com. BUY NOW!
Leather doesn’t have to be restricted to winter. Jaeger’s suede skirt is unbelievably soft, and its flared, pleated shape provides plenty of breathing space. Now, where’s my cowboy?…
