As we’ve been reminded over the past week, you can’t predict British weather. One minute the skies are blue and the sun is peeking through, the next snow warnings are being issued. This is why it’s always important to be sartorially prepared – rain or shine. Here’s some must-have pieces that will keep you covered when the weather can’t make up its mind.

The Trench

A short trench such as Jeymer is perfect for spring. Light and tailored yet ideal for when it rains, a trench coat has the sought after mix of style and practicality. Wear yours over a waffle knit, chinos and slip on loafers to stride effortlessly from one season to the next. A loose Mac such as Southall is also a go-to during the spring months.

The Bomber

The next essential piece for the erratic weather has got to be the bomber. Versatile, contemporary and on-trend; opt for an opulent bomber jacket to nail sports luxe with ease. This unique stone style from our SS13 Nineteen Seventy-One collection will look great paired with slim-fit charcoal jeans and tasselled loafers.

The Cardigan

No transitional wardrobe is complete without a stylish collection of cardigans. Perfect for layering when it’s cold or wearing alone over a plain tee on cool summer evenings, Sammy in rose is an absolute must-have. This perforated style is also ideal for the spring/summer months, as the holes will allow air through when it gets hot. Team with a bright tee, pastel chinos or jeans and sneakers.
