Stripes for Spring

As spring/summer edges closer, now is the time to start considering new-season style. Enthral passers-by with entrancing super-sized stripes, whether they be vertical, horizontal, or a mix-match of both.

The new collections are zinging with seafaring stripes of all shapes and sizes – for all shapes and sizes. Horizontal, vertical, on ribbed jerseys, billowing silks, for night, for day, and layered too. The simplest ideas are always the best. Dip a toe into this trend: try a Breton tee worn under a crisp white shirt. Consider it a fresh start to the new season.

Plazzo Pants

The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining—it’s safe to say that spring is really here. With hot days on the horizon, it’s time to invest in staple pieces that will work just as well for weekend jaunts as they do at the office. Up next on our list: palazzo pants. The forgiving, easy-to-wear trousers are known for their waist-whittling fit and bold colours. They’re the perfect piece to add some liveliness to your wardrobe this spring when you’re sick of jeans.
