Despite the cold weather, the fashion season has changed and Spring/Summer collections are arriving in store now. You can easily add a little spring to your wardrobe with a new-season print, even if you're not ready to pop on a floral dress and run barefoot through the daffodils just yet.
I am already plotting to wear this WORLD look - the beautifully structured Dolce Vita blazer with matching Trevi trouser, and the fabulous Fellini shirt featuring a French bulldog print and metal collar tips. Also embracing the full outfit contrast print look are these amazing options from twenty-seven names, Ruby and Pardon My French.
Or you can simply add a new season print to your everyday dark colours to brighten your outfit. These three fantastic print T-shirts from Ingrid Starnes, Staple + Cloth and Julian Danger are my picks.
Check The Line Up for accessories that will put a spring in your step, much like these floral Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses from their Almond Leaves collection.
Harry & Co is a local label handcrafting beautiful leather goods and their aptly named Stevie bag is to die for.
And finally from Beau Coops is their Edie loafer with its punctured hole treatment, iridescent leather and perspex heel. Without doubt this is one shoe this fashion queen will be wearing be wearing this season.
