5 Spring Essentials – what I am buying for my clients this month.

May 02, 2019

Dressing for Spring days is like stepping into the unknown – have I or haven’t I got it right temperature wise? Today I sat in the garden eating my lunch in the sunshine and this afternoon I am reaching for a jumper. So what are those in-between items that will see you through to the summer and beyond. Here’s what I am buying for my clients this month:

  1. Summer knitwear – the Aussie in me sees this as an oxymoron but I am quickly brought to reality by my London existence. Lightweight knitwear is a Spring must have as it keeps you warm but feels light to wear. Look for cotton, linen or finely woven merino wool or cashmere.

    Brands: ME+EM, Max Mara Studio, Joseph, COS, Uniglo

  2. Long sleeve dresses – The Jewel of the Nile… well that’s how I see it! Infinitely versatile, they work with blazers, denim jackets, cardigans, trench coats and makes you look like you have made more effort than you have.

    Brands: Equipment, Ulla Johnson, Ganni, & Other Stories, Arket,

  3. Summer coats – Choose your style from the classic trench, the functional parka or the light weight wool. Think about your lifestyle and what would work for you – a trench over workwear, a parka on the weekend and a double faced wool for evening.

    Brands: Harris Wharf, Rains, Sandro, Joseph, Whistles, Arket

  4. Jackets – I’m buying mostly blazers and leather for clients at the moment but I also love safari jackets, army jackets and denim jackets.

    Brands: Blaze Milano, Anine Bing, Zadig and Voltaire, Mango, Whistles, Massimo Dutti

  5. Casual trousers – You’ve spent your winter in denim and you are not quite ready for skirts so in steps the casual trouser. Dress it up with shirting and a blazer for work and with a knit and leather for the weekend.

    Brands: Isabel Marant, Masscob, BA&SH, J crew, ME + EM, Hush, & Other Stories, Zara
