Texture is the name of the game this season. Juxtaposing chunky knits with slinky silk skirts; luxuriously soft cashmere with heavy duty leather and feminine sparkle with every day denim is all the rage. Basically, anything goes. It's almost fair to say, the stronger the textural or pattern contrast the better.
With this very much in mind we have designed jumpers to suit all occasions and styles this season. From chunky ribbed knits to luxurious cashmere layering pieces, this season's knits form the basic building blocks for endless combinations.

It is very easy to compartmentalise our wardrobe particularly in the effort of saving space and to pack away our winter woolies with the promise of warmer times and vice versa. Jumpers being a prime example of this.
Maybe it is a statement we make to convince ourselves that summer equals warmth. Although how many times are we caught short when the weather doesn't quite conform to our childlike description of the seasons? I, for one, never pack away my jumpers and definitely want them easily accessible throughout the year.

Blue and all its hues (oh, I do love a rhyme!) is at the forefront of our minds at the moment. Not least because of the glorious bluebells carpeting our woodland but also because of the exciting arrival of Baby Sussex, Archie. Are Royal baby boys double blue?
We make no secret of the fact that blue is close to our hearts here at Cove. Navy, denim, royal, powder, cornflower and cobalt to name but a few are a collection staple. Blue is a chameleon of colours and with its various different shades there is a colour that suits all skin types, ages and colours.
Well, what an amazing weekend. Wall to wall sunshine and the hottest Easter Monday on record*. Is it fair to say, out loud, Spring is finally here? The sunglasses and bare ankles certainly say it is. But then it is April and as we know this is synonymous with showers so it may be prudent not to get too carried away in wearing our floaty Spring dresses on rotation.
This aside, there is no denying that the evenings can still be a little chilly and when the temperature drops you want to have a cosy jumper to hand. Even with bare legs, throwing on a warm jumper seems to do the trick once the sun goes down. That, and a large glass of something.
For us, International Women's Day is all about supporting and inspiring one another; not only in the world of business but in every day life. There is no denying that women deserve equal recognition and gender parity but just a mere act of kindness to each other epitomises the message behind IWD.
Instagram, whether you love it or hate it, has been a great platform to meet, connect and support other women in business. Those squares are proof of the hugely talented women out there who have grafted, made sacrifices and overcome challenges to be where they are today.
