The biker jacket
A biker jacket is a classic, but styles are constantly being refreshed. Update yours for spring buy ditching the basic black and opting for a bright hue such as yellow.
The off-the-shoulder top
Channel your inner Bridget Bardot with an off-the-shoulder top. Be brave and bare a bit of flesh on your top half, then team with some wide leg trousers and floppy hat for a seriously glamorous look.
The striped trousers
Striped trousers are going to be a big hit this spring! If prints on your bottom half scare you, then wear with a plain tee or a simple sweater, vamp them up for a night out with this season’s favourite, the blouse, and add pointed heels for legs that go on and on.
