Investing in key pieces and wearing them alongside old favourites is key to echoing effortless, casual styling for spring. Or take the plunge and up your outfit game with this season’s new take on stripes, bold colours and desert-inspired clothing...

Check in with the tartan and update your plaid this spring with the new season collections as showcased by Fendi’s SS18 collection. Opt for lighter fabrics than the tweed of AW to bring a new lease of life into your spring wardrobe. Classic shades with pops of colour and large graphic, open prints are key for nailing this look. Your must-have pieces are the faithful structured trouser suit and the addition of lightweight jackets. Team these with sharp luxe accessories including leather belts, sleek briefcases, and relaxed loafers.

Look to cool earthy tones with this season’s sway towards safari styling with an ode to urban desert camo. Opt for a palette of crisp stones, and camel tones, with leather footwear and luxe accessories for that clean-cut finish with functional detailing. The key pieces to invest in include chinos, relaxed linen shirts and military-esque field jackets.
Going For Bold

Make this spring brighter and bolder with an influx of Crayola colours. As seen across the runways of SS18, including Tom Ford and Kenzo, colour blocking is set to update your wardrobe with oversized blazers, trousers suits and updated loungewear. Be brave with your colour choices and commit to bold key pieces by wearing them with more subtle, neutral hues.

Bring on the denim with designer jeans and structured jackets. For SS18, thanks to the likes of Oliver Spencer, denim takes on a raw approach with deeper shades of mid-wash blue and indigo, with simple stitching and boxy cuts.These loose fit styles are easily worn making this trend work well with everything from box-fresh trainers to timeless tan loafers. Look for sporty details for a more casual outfit, and avoid bold patterns for a more sophisticated take on this season’s hottest denim.
