fashion jacket


Tip 1

Rediscover an old jacket or blazer and team it with a pair of jeans. This outfit will take you pretty much anywhere and a jacket looks so much fresher and more pulled together than your winter anorak! If the spring sunshine goes in, add a scarf!

fashion shoes


Tip 2

Swap your winter boots for a pair of flats – point toes, ballerinas, plimsolls, you decide – just make sure you flash your ankles!

Tip 3

Forget about winter black and instead choose blue as your base colour. Add spring tones such as yellows, greens and pinks to lift your look.

fashion summer skirt



Tip 4

Midi or below the knee skirts are good for covering up pale winter legs. Juxtapose a skirt you would usually reserve for high summer with a thick knit and a pair of ankle boots.

Tip 5

Try the fashion editor semi tuck. Literally tuck half of your shirt or jumper into the front of your skirt, skinny/straight jeans or fitted trousers for an ultra-casual fashion editor chic look. Blouson the tuck to give balance and team with a pair of mid heels to elongate the figure.
