In Full Bloom
With the weather hovering in that grey area (literally) of muggy spring warmth and that chilly residual winter breeze, now's a better time than ever to trot out lighter versions of some tried-and-true silhouette classics in of-the-moment colours and fabrications. Think traditional garden floral prints married with city-chic colour blocking, acid-trip brights and delicately opulent inspirations hailing from the far eastern orient. While designers of the haute stuff frequently churn out elaborately in-your-face toppers, we have the deities of high street fashion to bow down to for similar versions that won't break the bank. Throwing one over your usual 9-to-5 uniform is easy peasy; it's taking it off upon arrival at the workplace that'll be the problem.
