With the change in seasons, inevitably comes a change in how we approach our wardrobes. I, for one, am a particularly seasonal dresser— in winter I’m all about those cosy layers, rich jewel tones and fancy fabrics. As soon as the sun starts to shine in spring, however, I feel myself getting drawn to light, bright and breezy pieces.
My denim choices change from black to blue and camel blazers are switched in for my pastel jackets. Of course, not all change happens instantly, and for now, whilst we’re in the transition between seasons, I find picking one or two pieces that lighten up your look layered up with a trench or bright jumper does just the trick.
The below 40 pieces are some of the most simple but effective throw-on styles that will freshen up your wardrobe instantly and make it a much more enjoyable experience getting dressed in the morning. We’ve looked to some of our editors’ favourite brands for understated classics like Marks and Spencer and Vince, whose light linens, soft denim and simple shirtdresses are not only timeless but also do the perfect job of making you feel put together with minimal effort made.
