Ask the stylists: How to get your look ready for spring


Fingers crossed that the weather forecast is correct and we should start to see some sunnier weather. As the temperature rises, our personal stylists Florrie Dunn and Tim Benns have put together a checklist of the items you need for your summer wardrobe.

How many of you have been dying to get into your spring attire? Us too! According to weather reports warmer weather is on its way, so let us help you make sure that you are ready with our guide to your new season wardrobe.

Here are just a few items available from our spring and summer collections. Each gives a nod to the trends of the new season so that you can add two or three pieces to your existing wardrobe to bring your look up to date.

Camouflage is back and a lightweight camo jacket will give your look an instant spring and summer update. Wear with everything from jeans to layering over your summer dress for an edgy look. 

Mint Velvet Camouflage Pocket Jacket



Once again florals are big for spring and summer. From tropical prints to more ditsy patterns, pick your print and wear for any occasion. A floral blouse will make you feel like spring is here.

Esprit Floral Silky Blouse



Lilac and purple is a big trend for summer. If you find this colour hard to wear, why not add this hue through your accessories?

Radley Pocket Essentials Magenta Pink Large Zip Top Tote Bag



The gingham check is back for its second summer, especially with the Western trend bringing back the 90s look of checked shirts and jeans, fringing and mini dresses worn with cowboy boots. This dress may seem a litle short for some, but worn over a pair of skinny jeans or shorts, it makes a stylish top too.

Tommy Hilfiger Gingham Check Seersucker Dress



One of the key pieces you need this summer is the sweatshirt. Perfect for covering up on cool summer evenings, keeping warm on the beach and layering over your festival outfit, make sure yours has your favourite brand's logo on it.

Levi's Graphic Crew B Sweatshirt



Update your denim with a denim skirt. Look for a pencil style, which will streamline your shape and will be smart enough to dress up or down so that it is versatile enough to be worn with most items in your wardrobe.

Gerry Weber Vintage Finish Denim Skirt



Shorts are making a comeback in a big way this summer. From short shorts, to capri pants and cropped jeans, invest in a style that suits you and you will be wearing these all summer.

Esprit Soft Capri Jeans



Free your feet from tights and boots with a pair of flat sandals. Look for a style that mixes colours or textures and you can step into summer in style.

A pair of stylish sunglasses are essential for any summer wardrobe update. This year the classic wayfarer style meets pastel hues for a softer look. 

Powder Designs Adele Cream Gold Sunglasses



The cardigan is another staple piece that is back with a bang this season. Choose a cropped style if you want to emphasise your waist or a long style if you want to appear taller.

Luisa Cerano Tie Front Cardigan



A pair of short shorts is a great addition to your summer wardrobe as not only can you wear them on the beach or on holiday, worn with a long tunic, under a short summer dress, or with a sweatshirt and ankle boots you can style them to suit days spent in the city too.

Calvin Klein Denim Shorts 



It's all in the detail this season with shirts, t shirts and knitwear featuring buttons on the sleeves, ribbons on the sleeves or knotted at the waist. 

Gerry Weber Striped Knot Detail T Shirt



Primary colours are one of the summer trends with red, blue and green featuring in many of the season's collections. Wear one statement piece or wear two different primary colours together.

Jack Jones New Raffa Logo Tee 



Beige doesn't have to be boring. Invest in a pair of beige jeans or chinos and wear with any of summer's looks from tropical prints and bright colours, to stripes or checks.

Levi's 511 Slim Fit Bi-Stretch Jeans



Denim is your wardrobe staple for any season, so for summer why not mix it up a bit with a pair of denim colour shoes? Wear with jeans for a twist on the double denim look and with shorts.

A lightweight blazer will see you through the wedding season and those occasions where you need to be smart/casual. Wear with suit trousers, chinos or even a pair of tailored shorts. 

Hackett Delave Blazer



Tropical print is the pattern for spring and summer 2018. Look for palm tree prints to get this look down to a tee.

You should always have a check shirt in your wardrobe whatever the season. Versatile to be worn with a suit or with shorts, this will be your go to item this spring and summer.

Khaki is another colour that is hot for spring and summer. From shirts to shorts, why not inject a bit of khaki into your accessories too?
