THE STRUCTURED CROP TOP
You've worked hard for that toned bod, so why not show it off? A sculpted crop is the perfect way to bare a bit of flesh and still keeps things classy. Look for boxy, structured silhouettes and to prepare yourself for the warmer weather, opt for light and luxe materials, like silk, that won't be too heavy on the body. Wear it with a pair of high waisted pants or skirt and your most lady-like heels.
THE WHITE SHIRT DRESS
The ultimate spring piece and a wardrobe staple. It's simple, put together and can be dressed up or down for any occasion. The best part is that there are so many styles and lengths available, so there's something for everyone. Wear it on its own with a pair of sandals for a girl's day out, or take things a step further and use it as a base to play around with bold accessories, like a vest or sweater, for dressier occasions.
THE PLEATED SKIRT
Breezy and barelegged, this piece has spring written all over it. It was all over the SS/14 runways earlier this year and for good reason. It's sweeping, clean and oh so easy to wear. Opt for skirts in light colours or shades of white in statement fabrics like chiffon for an ultra-crisp look. Pull on an oversized tunic top, or pair with a tailored button down, and your office look is sorted.
They may have once been the it-shoe of the 90s and typically associated back in the day with the over sixties, but for spring, the mule has gotten a chic makeover. Whether it's in the form of a wedged bootie, strappy black stiletto or chunky white heel, mules are a versatile buy now-wear forever addition to your wardrobe. It'll work just as well with a pencil skirt for the office, or with a pair of boyfriend jeans for a casual weekend outfit.
THE LIGHT SWEATER
It may seem basic, but spring is one of those seasons that sometimes can't decide if it wants to sit on the warm or cold side of the fence. Cue this sweater! Opt for high, crew cut necklines that you can easily pool over a tank top or a dress in the evenings when the temperature drops. I love stocking up on neutrals or monochrome shades, like grey or white, so they can be easily matched with most items in my wardrobe.
