The fine print

Wearing prints can often be a daunting prospect so don’t feel alone if you’re hesitant – confidence is key. By all means, clash patterns but be sure to keep them in the same colour palette to avoid looking too try-hard.

Fashion’s obsession with pyjama-style dressing is another look to experiment with this season. Wearing head-to-toe prints guarantees a statement but if you’re looking to pare it back slightly, wear one or the other or slip on a navy trench to strike a balance.

Show off your tan

The shade that suits every complexion. Whether you’re fair or dark-skinned, tan will instantly warm up your skin tone to flattering effect. For an effortless take, try a tan biker jacket and pair with tonal separates for a fresh spring palette.

This suede sleeveless jacket is a key layering piece for the modern wardrobe. If you want to keep your arms covered, simply layer it over a long-sleeved body or shirt. Wear cinched at the waist with coordinating trousers for a modern spin on tailoring.

Khaki rules

As versatile as black, consider khaki the ‘new neutral’. This quilted jacket is a cool addition to your spring wardrobe but the real selling point is that it will go with absolutely everything, from denim and leather trousers to an LBD.

What about a khaki leather dress? Not as scary as it might sound. Thanks to a loose-fitting silhouette, this Autograph style, which lands in April, is easy to wear and will also skim over any problem areas. A true throw-on piece, just add flats or heels depending on your mood.
