Spring Time In The City

It's that beautiful time of year again. Flowers are blossoming, new born lambs are pottering around farms and the delicate aroma of romance is swirling through the air. It's wedding season; meaning we have the perfect excuse to buy a new outfit.

Avoid the wedding guest cliche and step away from the floral tea dresses - instead modernize the look and place some elegant flowers in your hair. A simple pink dress will look gorgeous in wedding photos; the girlie colour injects a flirtatious amount of romance in to the look while still remaining glamorous. This sophisticated mini dress is the perfect day to night dress. The flattering, yet understated shape glides over a multitude of sins - meaning you can indulge in as much wedding cake and Prosecco as you wish! To avoid risks of upstaging the bride - keep accessories simple. Rose gold jewels look gorgeous against any skin colour; style with a simple pair of earrings, an elegant necklace and an oversized clutch to channel the hopeless romantic in us all.

Hyper Floral

Pack a punch with some hyper florals this Spring. Flowers are everywhere we look; they're blooming in our gardens, weaved into hair garlands and cascaded over our manicures. It's now time to take the trend one step further and inject some flower power into our wardrobes.

This New Look jumpsuit is the perfect transition piece to keep you looking fresh through the summer drizzle. The loose fit keeps your silhouette looking sleek while the long leg length means you can team it with a pair of killer heels to fake super model pins. If you don't want to lace your entire body in the earthy print - break up the design with a belt. This gold chain belt adds the perfect amount of glamour to the look while clinching in your waist creating enviable curves.

Transform the look into a 70s masterpiece by teaming your jumpsuit with an over sized floppy hat and brown chunky wedges. If you don't want to work such a strong vintage vibe - simply drape a gold necklace on your chest, slide some sunglasses through your hair and smile like a Bohemian goddess.

Tropical Heat

After an array soggy bank holiday barbecues and rainy weekends, the sun has finally made an appearance. It's that glorious time of year again; meaning our wardrobes have suddenly got a lot more interesting. Drab shades of grey and black have been replaced with a rainbow of  luminous brights, sumptuous prints and strappy sandals.

For a fresh look this season, invest in a chic pair of printed trousers. This tropical Miss Selfridge pair make for a vivid summer look; the floral print injects splashes of neon and evokes images of sultry rain forests and scorching summer heats. Over load on colour and team your zesty prints with a bold crop top. This acid yellow beauty is a spring time staple. The high neck line adds an elegant touch, while still allowing you to show off your tanned midriff. Team your outfit with a block heel, gold accessories and a massive pair or sunglasses to keep the look catwalk cool.

Prom Perfection

Dresses are the easiest way to add a feminine touch to your day time attire. This stunning party dress is perfect for SS14 - the baby blue hue and gorgeous shape make this a wardrobe essential. The adorable skater design gives the look a soft edge while the bustier front vamps up the look for added impact. Keep the look simple and choose delicate accessories; strappy heels and a clutch compliment this look beautifully.

If can't leave the house without lashings of jewels laced over your fingers and drizzled on your neck - hunt down a pastel statement necklace. Miss Selfridge and New Look do some dazzling floral beauties. If you want to inject some more pizazz into the outfit - slip some floral rings on your claws and add some omph to your locks. Tong sections of your hair and leave the rest to dry with a natural wave.

Sumptuous Wristwear

For an outfit that really dazzles - you need accessories. Whether your layering on lashings of midi rings or draping your midriff in Rhianna inspired body chains - these are the pieces that make your look stand out from the crowd. After all, imagine Glastonbury without a hair hiding trilby, a gig without metallic jewels cascading up your arms or god forbid - slipping into your trusty LBD and not having a statement neck piece on.

Glamorous wrist wear is having a moment this S/S. Whether your flicking though a magazine, catching up on Made in Chelsea or simply grabbing lunch with the girls - your bound to spot some jewels wrapped around someones wrists. Thomas Sabo and Pandora bracelets are everywhere - but if dainty charms aren't your thing  invest in a oversized Watch. This rose gold Marc Jacobs beauty adds the perfect amount of grown up glamour to any outfit. The masculine time keeper has an array of bronze rhinestones scattered around the watch face and a shimmering finish which compliments tanned skin perfectly. 

To add a girlie edge, check out Monica Vinader's friendship bracelets. The jeweler has a wide range of adorable string designs with engraved gold or silver panels. These are the perfect way to rock the 90s trend and bring back memories of weaving friendship jewelry from scoobies and our mums sewing box.

The friendship bracelet just got a whole lot cooler.
