I am itching to wear brighter and lighter clothes. I am so bored of my winter garb, everything looks so tired and dull. I am craving colour and light fabrics.

With my less is more and buy less and better, I have tried to focus on the best quality and price points in my review of what is out there.

I have scoured all the highstreet brands to try and bring you the pieces which won’t break the bank, are wearable and capture the trends.

I am loving the trenchcoat ( more of this in a later post), the cropped jeans, floaty dresses , loafers , statement tops, boiler suits and off course you all know how attached I am to a good jumpsuit.

 

Spring 2016 Best of the Highstreet

 

  1. Lets start with my current obsession the trench, it just is the best transitional piece. You can wear it now with a sweater and with a t-shirt, once the weather gets warmer. Mango, is so strong this season and I adore this structured trench. It is just more flattering that a lot of the very floaty ones on the market. It comes in beige and black. Finery have a fabulous longer calf length one, which is what I have my eye on.
  2. Jumpsuit are not going away as they are so easy to grab and go, this year the trend is more to a fitted boiler suit look.I have found one at Topshop but if I am also tempted by this flared and fitted one by ASOS. I am throwing  my oversized coat over mine now to keep me warm.
  3. I have long been searching for a great red jumpsuit and both Zara and Uterque have nailed this trend, image these with a denim shirt or jacket in the  Spring, or paired with a trench.
  4. The statement shirt cannot be avoided, be it off the shoulder, shoulder free , or the side knot Marks and Spencer, H&M, Zara and Cos have the best selection.
  5. Just buy a colour, yellow is huge this season and I adore the simple one above from Topshop. Finery are noted, for a great use of the perfect hue and the cornflower blue sweater above is something you can wear now .
  6. Bodies are back, they just go so well under dungarees and flared denim, the one pictured above is from Mango.
  7. Breton tops, you can never have enough and I have bought this one from & Other Stories, the fit is great and I love the emblem detailing and side buttons.
  8. A great pair of cargo pants for me are one of the first things I turn to once the weather gets warmer, there is no need to invest as Gap just do the best ones.
  9. We have already spoken a lot on the blog about the cropped flare, the highstreet is full of fabulous options such as the pairs above by ASOS and Topshop.
  10. The floaty dress is something I pull out as soon as we get to March, with a pair of boots and a oversized cardigan thrown over, you cannot help but feel that Summer is around the corner.  Free People, have this trend covered, I am so tempted by the black maxi above which is in the sale at ASOS.  I always find great dresses in H&M and this pink floral number is a great length.
  11. I have invested in the Topshop Unique kimono top to wear over my cropped jeans but this one from Zara really embraces this trend.
  12. Shoes well the high cut, round toe balled flat is huge, Celine kick started the trend which I spoke about last year but you can find them everywhere now from Topshop to H&M.
  13. A Gucci loafer is on my wish list but these from Zara are the perfect shape and shade.

I have tried to choose classic pieces with a twist and ensure that you can mix and match all the items, to create great outfits.

Please share with me any great Highstreet finds and we can feature them.
