With the change in seasons inevitably comes a change in how we approach our wardrobes. In winter, I’m all about those cosy layers, rich jewel tones and fancy textures. 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 white, and my beige blazer switches out for prints and pastels.
It will probably still be a while until we're in top-to-toe linen, but for now, as we transition through the great British springtime, I find picking one or two fresh pieces and layering them up with a trench or spring jacket does just the trick.
