Spring has officially sprung, bringing new fashion trends and an excuse to revamp your wardrobe.

This spring, classic looks seem to be the go-to, which is perfect for a capsule wardrobe and can be easily dressed up or down.


Crochet is in, and we’re not talking about your great grandma’s doilies. In preppy meets sexy, these semi see-through pieces should be a staple for your spring wardrobe.

This cool take on a classic shirt (1) from H&M would be perfect worn over your new favourite pair of mom jeans (2) from Select - an effortless look that can be easily styled up.

If you’re not into the preppy style, a simple patterned t-shirt (3) could work too, like this bee embroidered one from Next.

To make this outfit go from morning hot cross buns with the family to a Sunday pub lunch, pair with some heeled mules (4 - New Look) and a funky, oversized blazer. (5 - River Island)

To add to the outfit’s texture, add a straw style bag (6 - Next), (an influencer must-have) which will go with every outfit you put together.

Gold rather than silver jewellery is the most popular choice this spring, and Next has some beautiful spring options, such as these bee earrings (7).

Spring can sometimes be awkward weather-wise, so with April showers approaching, we recommend investing in a waterproof spring themed jacket (8), like this one from USC, just in case.

On the lucky days when jeans may be a little too hot, a satin slip dress (9 - Quiz) with a denim jacket (10 - Roman) and white trainers would be perfect. You can pair this with the bag and heels mentioned before too!

To add the final touch, spritz yourself with a spring-summer scent. Why not try CK One Summer from The Fragrance Shop (11) or River Island’s Hello Petale (12)? 



This year’s Grammy Awards showed that wide-leg trousers for men are back. We saw the likes of Justin Bieber rock the loose fit look, but for something more wearable day-to-day, Frenchgate has loads to offer.

In New Look, there is a range of loose-fitting jeans (13), or for something more high-end, USC has you sorted with this pair of Dickies jeans (14). As the weather is still a bit bleak, black jeans are great when the rest of the outfit is lighter.

You can’t go wrong with a good-quality white t-shirt from River Island (15), worn under an open shirt (16 - H&M) for a casual yet stylish look with a darker pair of jeans.

To keep the look laid back, pair with these cool Keith Haring inspired high-tops from H&M (17), alongside some silver chains and rings (18 - H&M) if you’re into jewellery - and if not, why not give it a go? Spring is the time for a fresh start, after all!

To make the outfit a bit more formal, ditch the trainers for a pair of classic leather chelsea boots. (19 - H&M)

This outfit would be perfect for anything from Easter Sunday lunch to a sunny walk in the park.



All in one outfits paired with a jacket are an easy option for the kids.

For girls, Next have a range of summer dresses in funky animal prints (20) that work great with a jacket (21 - River Island) and sandals (22 - Next) or trainers (23 - River Island), depending on the weather.

For the boys, H&M’s two-piece (24) sets are ideal. Pick these up with ease, without worrying about finding something to match. A set such as the cotton T-shirt and jeans (25 - H&M) can be worn on its own or with a jacket (26 - River Island) to make it a little more formal. Pair with white trainers (27 - USC) to complete the look.

Frenchgate is the place to be for your spring wardrobe. So why not treat yourself to a bee-utiful new outfit?
