Put some ‘Spring’ in your step

Every day the light is fading later and later and winter is almost finally behind us. I am embracing spring with both arms and with that in mind I have picked some of my preferred key looks for Spring 2013 straight from the catwalk. Simply adapt these looks to your taste and budget by keeping your eyes peeled on the high street or DIY.

metallic stripes

Stripes are ‘in’ this spring and bold geometric shapes but dont worry about everything matching up, a little colour clashing is good although I think subtler shades with a pop of strong colour as above works best. I also love the chiffon and pearl cuff…

striped skirt

For daytime pair a nice loose shirt or cotton t shirt with a tight fitting pencil skirt and finish with chunky jewellery and colourful nails.

dress

Florals are also in and while the catwalk is dictating strong floral colours I love the classic cut and delicacy of this beautiful fifties style oriental silk dress and will be keeping my eyes peeled for a high street version.

lanvin

I couldnt resist including this silk knit Lanvin dress in blush – just so pretty but so unaffordable.

yellow

Love this pop of colour for spring by J Crew, could see it paired up with jeans and a Breton top.

sass

This embroidered clutch by Sass and Bide is another lovely piece which would be a wardrobe staple for night time.

classic

If it’s classic everyday elegance you’re looking for this spring then look no further, I love this two tone nude and black tote bag.

cuff

Finally, am coveting this Kate Spade NY ‘Be Art and Part Of’ idiom cuff, alas only available in Bloomingdales but it looks like a Frey Wille with a significantly lower price tag <covet>
