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.
