Technically, Spring should already have sprung, but here we are, still wearing our winter jumpers and feeling thoroughly sorry for ourselves. Meanwhile, you want to go shopping, but the shops are full of summer dresses and short shorts that you just can’t imagine you’ll get the chance to wear any time soon. This calls for a bit of smart inter-seasonal shopping; choosing key quality pieces that you can rock in this harsh extended winter and the warm summer, if it ever materializes.
The key to a good inter-seasonal look is to pick a fabric that will provide a layer of warmth in winter, but which is also cool and lightweight enough for warmer weather. Dresses are the easiest item of clothing to reboot and when it comes to fabric, jersey is a classic choice. This chic See by Chloe shift is a strong transitional piece. The brightness of the print will perk up a drizzly day and will also work in bright sunlight, and the pixelated cobra print is a great update on the ubiquitous animal print trend.
For cold weather, throw on a pair of tights, some sturdy boots, a lightweight knit and a leather jacket, and then simply update it in summer with a pair of flats and a statement necklace.
Maybe you’re sick of waiting for the sun to arrive, and you’ve decided to jet off to warmer climes and get some sun. We don’t blame you; swapping a soggy commute for a sun lounger and a cocktail is a no brainer.
Looking your best by the pool or on the beach is no mean feat. Of course you’ll need a great bikini and a pedicure, but you’ll also want to make sure your make-up is working as hard as you play, which means choosing waterproof products that give maximum effect with minimum effort.
The whole point of holiday glamour is to look effortlessly chic, so you really don’t want to be performing poolside touch-ups every time you step out of the water. Keep it simple: a pop of lip colour and sweeping lashes will give you a great holiday look with a low-maintenance air. Dab some waterproof concealer under your eyes if you’re feeling a little jet-lagged.
A white bikini is the best way to show off a tan, and is pretty much timeless, think Kate Moss on a St. Barths yacht and you’re there. Curvier girls can’t go wrong with a more retro shape, and strapless styles eliminate the dreaded tan line issue.
