YOUR NEW-SEASON PREVIEW

Five easy trends to try this season, from wear-on-repeat dresses to luxe leather midi skirts. Your spring wardrobe refresh starts here 

Tropical deluxe

Thanks to Jennifer Lopez and that dress on the Versace catwalk, leaf prints are seriously in demand right now. But you don’t have to be a red carpet regular to tap into the trend. Keep things simple by investing in wear-anywhere tops, floaty midi dresses and eye-catching accessories. A breezy button-down, like this Per Una number, will earn its keep during the warmer months.

Hell for leather

Not just for winter, leather proved in high demand as a spring-summer staple on the SS20 catwalks. Our tip is to invest in versatile hues such as tan, burgundy, chocolate brown or failsafe black to eke the most all-year-round mileage out of the trend. For a chic workwear look, try a sleek pencil skirt paired with knitwear on chilly, not-quite-spring-yet mornings, or team with a floral blouse and block-heel sandals as seen on the catwalks at Givenchy.

Full-on florals

We are firm believers that floral print is a never-out-of-fashion style staple but this season, Marni, Marc Jacobs and Richard Quinn upped the ante with a ‘more is more’ approach: think voluminous puff sleeves, frou-frou layers and sweetheart necklines. For a real-life look that still packs a punch, try a floral jumpsuit paired with crisp white trainers, or a retro-inspired mini dress with cream ankle boots, as seen on Holly Willoughby.

Hug a hoodie

Reflecting fashion’s enduring obsession with streetwear, the layered-hoodie look is plucked directly from those in the know at Fashion Week. Instagram influencers may flock to Sandy Liang and Alexander Wang for their sports-luxe separates, but you can recreate the look for the school run with our ultra-wearable options. Take your pick from designs made of recycled polyester through to plush 100% cashmere styles. And with several months of nippy weather still ahead, this is a styling hack to master now.

Denim for days

As seen at Khaite and Celine, Seventies-era denim is key this season, offering an effortless take on practical-chic. A pair of high-waisted wide-leg jeans (coming soon) is your best buy: not only are they flattering on all figures, they also have potential for fuss-free outfitting – team with a skinny-rib polo neck and leather loafers for day, and dress up with a feminine blouse for evening. Similarly, a flattering midi skirt will add a subtle statement to your working wardrobe and look great with tan sandals come summer.
