The arrival of a new season is a great excuse to experiment with colour and leave your beloved black ensembles for rainy days. When creating your outfit, bright colours should take priority. They can easily be worked into your everyday style and help breathe new life into your existing wardrobe.
It's almost time to put away your thick woolly coats and heavy parkas to make way for lightweight coats that help with the transition from winter to spring without a complete wardrobe overhaul. Here's the styles that should be hanging in your closet to ensure you're fully prepared come rain or shine. Buy now and you won't regret it later.
It's time to sail away from the classic Breton stripe. This season we're celebrating the power of stripes but in its most modern form. Stripes are colourful and bold and are moving in all directions. It's a look that has always worked in fashion and keeps on giving whether you're dressed for day or night.
When a celebrity with as much influence on fashion as Victoria Beckham ditches her high heels for comfortable flats, it gives us normal folk the seal of approval to wear trainers in place of skyscrapers. And how grateful we are too. Years of balancing, sore feet and too many blisters to count, may now have come to a close.
It's not often I will allocate space to write about a trend that is so fashion (darling!) that you need to be in the business to pull it off, but outdoor boudoir elegance is huge this season and can't go unnoticed.

Although there is still a chill in the air, the days are getting noticeably longer. This means one thing: spring is in the air. Well, almost. This is the time to consider rethinking the all-black winter uniform you've lived in for the past six months and to inject some subtle colour into your look. Pantone hits of sherbet shades are high on the menu for next season.
Like most trends these days, it begins with the Kardashian girls. Highlighting or strobing, as the beauty pack like to call it, became a craze in 2015 set off by Kim Kardashian's Instagram post of her make-up being applied with a map of colours to emphasise specific areas of her face.
When questioning a group of friends about what they associate with the colour red, love was surprisingly low on the list. However, power, danger, passion and stop were all words that were brought up several times over.
One wouldn't normally choose extra-padded jackets and oversized goggles as a look for the sophisticated, let alone the minus temperatures that play havoc on your skin and hair. Mountain style takes some planning. So before you jet off to white snow and beautiful surroundings, ensure you're kitted out like a pro, but a fashionable one.
