Payday is just around the corner, and so is springtime. It's time to update our wardrobes the high street way
February is the strangest of months. It's short - but mighty. A whole lot happens in this mini-month; your social life gets back into order, you're settled in the new routine you started for the New Year (or you've accepted that it's never gonna happen); and the weather is slowly turning.
Well, when I say the weather is turning, I mean the days are getting longer and flowers are beginning to bloom. The temperature is actually dropping - but we won't let that get in the way of our SS18 outfits, will we?
Yesterday, I reminded you that's it's time to purchase your annual spring dress. Today, let's look at more essential pieces to add to your spring wardrobe.
You can never have enough white button-downs and this one has a cute back-tie detail which makes it lovely for work OR holidays.
Blazers are your best friends at the best of times, but especially at this time of year. This one looks busy with the double-breasted style, stripes and buttons but it will go with everything.
Plain white runners are still in. Alexa Chung is launching a collection with Superga in March with runners that look sneakily similar to these ones. Get them for less in River Island.
Forget band tees, it's strong female singers we want emblazoned on our fronts.
It circle handle is the It detail of 2018 bags. This one is handy because it will hold a lot and you'll be subtly on trend.
Wide, striped and you can wear with runners? These trousers are three trends in one.
Christopher Bailey has just left Burberry, but his legacy is going to be everywhere for the rest of the year. Nod to it with this checked coat.
Mules were made this season for the working woman. You know Zara has you covered.
It's a plain jumper but not as you know it.
This is just lovely. And versatile. And just so lovely.
Possibly the only new pair of jeans you'll need this year.
You still need jumpers in spring (and summer); this one is nice and warm but in a bright weather shade. And it will go very well with your camel coat.
