When it comes to fashion grievances, this annoying in-between weather as winter turns to spring is right up there with the worst. (Beast from the East anyone?)
In Northern Ireland you can live through four seasons in one day – not to mention office air-con and central heating wreaking havoc with your style choices.
To help speed up your morning routine it’s all about key pieces that you can pull together for that tailored workwear look or to set off a casual but chic weekend vibe.
I love a simple neutral coloured top with blue or black jeans, paired back with a quality leather jacket. Leather is the simplest way to toughen up a look in the spring and can be a real head turner.
If you want to keep your wardrobe reasonably muted inject a splash of colour with an infinity scarf or one of our coloured statement earrings.
For mums on the run or for your weekend casual look the Amie sweatshirt is a must. Sheer lace sleeves make a flirty feminine update to a classic crewneck sweatshirt. Just add jeans!
Moving into the spring also offers the chance to bare a little skin and the Ren Slouchy knit top is just the tonic. Cosy and comfy are on the top of every girl’s ‘must have’ list and the Ren ticks all these boxes. I love that it can be dressed up or down. Top tip girls: Add a long layered silver necklace to finish the look.
I don’t know about you but for me Breton stripes scream spring time and the Kara knit top with its simple navy and white pattern features the most fabulous boat shaped neckline. Team it with mint or red statement earrings for that instant pop of colour.
