Mothering Sunday falls three weeks before Easter. A time we would like to think of as Spring. Not this year!
Thankfully the Beast from the East has finally lessened its grip, for some of us anyway, and the resilience of the daffodils reminds us that Spring is around the corner. Personally, I can’t wait for the longer days, leaving the house in less than five layers and not always having to cover up in a heavy winter coat – although this does mean you can get away with wearing anything (or nothing?!) underneath. But beware, this ‘in betweener’ period does not come without its sartorial pitfalls.
It’s all about the layers – as my mother has often said – at this time of changeable weather. And layers we are good at!
Let us guide you through our key pieces to make your Spring transition effortless.
Style Tip 1: The key to stylish layering and to avoid michelin man chic is to mix colours and textures. Be proud of the layers. Even show them off.
Style Tip 2: Layer our sleeveless cashmere collection over a long sleeved tee or a shirt in classic plains or with bold prints.
Style Tip 3: The perfect ‘in betweener’. Our reversible cotton cashmere Flora poncho offers double the wardrobe options. In warmer weather a poncho ticks all the boxes as that extra layer and is the perfect seasonal update from a coat.
Style Tip 4: The delicacy of cashmere makes it ideal for all seasons. Our collection of classic crews with neon stripes and motifs will carry you effortlessly through to Spring and beyond.
Style Tip 5: The ultimate layering tee. Wear on its own, layered over a contrasting colour or under any of our designs. Being lightweight and long in length our tees are the key to successful layering.
Style Tip 6: Team our jumpers with the ‘bottom’ of your choice: jeans, skirt, shorts or layered over a dress. Versatility being key.
Style Tip 7: Last but absolutely not least, wear something that makes you happy. Happiness and confidence are the ultimate style booster.
Moral of the story? Listen to your mother and layer up!
