Dreaming of warmer climes is well within reason now that spring is on the horizon and with that in mind, it’s time to identify the styles to know now and invest in the season’s key building block pieces.

Suede is the order of the day. For an elegant take on trend-led styling, wear it head-to-toe, accessories included. Adding a crisp white shirt to a statement skirt will capture preppy polish meets safari chic.

Shift silhouettes have long since carried the torch for pared-back minimalism but this season’s colour-block heroes will re-charge your dresses rotation and hint at the new season without giving too much away.

This season, why not eschew classic suiting for a more modern alternative? Adopting a relaxed bomber in lieu of a blazer will set the tone for an effortless and on-point tailoring refresh.

Colour play is key to making a stylish transition into spring. A single statement piece in a rich, can’t-be-missed hue will make a confident statement and offset between-season styles in the most relevant way.

There’s a strong focus on texture play this season and with this comes new incarnations of the wardrobe staples we love. A semi-sheer sweatshirt and languid pencil skirt, for example, make for an especially dynamic duo.

It’s common knowledge that the trench coat is a classic but those truly in the know take theirs with a twist. Imagined in sumptuous suede, this season’s hero is a marriage of utility luxe and premium fabrication.

 Power dressing meets androgyny in a double-breasted blazer so make it your evening uniform – the more oversized the better. Worn against slim-leg tailoring and feminine accents, it’s a sleek and sophisticated failsafe.

Cropped lengths bring a new purity to the timeless trench coat and when ruched at the sleeves, it’s a contemporary way to cover up between seasons.

Fluid, clean lines and a decided softness transform wardrobe classics into elegant, trend-led looks and offer a wearable way to celebrate tailoring’s sensual new mood.

 Soft shades stay in favour for spring and translate well for now, so investment wisely. A suede dress in a tried and tested silhouette proposes a new kind of chic that will set the tone for a season in style.
