Revive Your Spring Wardrobe

Last month’s catwalk marathon might have provided us with plenty of brilliant fashion inspiration for AW17, but we’re more into instant gratification (or should that be grazification?) when it comes to getting our shopping fix. Which is why we followed the action off the catwalks and onto the streets, where fashion’s fearless front line have been busy trialling brand new trends for SS17. First up, the five pieces to shop right now, from timeless, transeasonal trench coats and candy-stripe bags to… it-socks. Yes, really – Gucci and Vetements have both done pairs, or try Topshop’s take for just £3.50 (then you won’t mind so much when you find a hole in the toe). Once you’ve bagged you must-buys, it’s time for step two: the three simple styling hacks that will shift your look firmly into new season territory – even if you’re still wearing last season’s stuff. Ready? Then let’s hit the streets…

1. Trans-seasonal trench coats

It’s not every day that a fashion trend actually considers practicality, but the trench coat (as seen on every street style star worth her salt) ticks both our style and substance boxes. Well, who are we to look a gift horse in the mouth?

2. The mini-mule

Part mule, part kitten heel, this is a trend double whammy – and you don’t even need a pedicure. Where do we sign?

3. The tailored trackies

If you were wondering how grown-ups can wear athleisure, here’s your answer. But no matching zip-tops, please and thank you – one piece of kit is plenty.

Solve All Of Your Holiday Woes

Renowned for floral cold-shoulder dresses, minimal co-ords and Instagrammable accessories, it’s no wonder Reformation has amassed an A-list following.

And now, the cult US brand is here to solve one of summer’s greatest sartorial dilemmas. Yes, the fashion label has finally launched a swimwear line just in time for our annual getaway.

And boy, it’s truly something to behold.

We’re talking candy-striped swimsuits, cold-shoulder gingham two-pieces and Bardot-style bikini tops Brigitte herself would be proud of.

And of course, the US brand ships worldwide so we needn’t worry about that minor hinderance.

You’ll notice at most weddings that your lovely bride and groom prove the rule ‘opposites attract’. The same is true for accessories, so avoid matching bags, shoes and jewels to each other and brighten up a simple one-colour dress with bold and bright mis-matched accessories.

Here comes the…

While we want you to be the most stylish guest in the chapel, just don’t upstage the bride. Bad form. Avoid giant hats and statement headwear. And flouro-brights are probably best left untouched, too.
