First up are a new classic: mules. Although they might have been in for a while now, they’ve had a transformation just in time for Spring. While still as comfortable as ever, peep toes and points add a touch of glamour, making them the perfect shoe for holidays as well as nights out. We love Steve Madden’s versatile Rosella Block Heeled Mule Sandals, found at John Lewis, on the corner of South John Street and Paradise Street. Dressed up or dressed down, these shoes go with everything!

Denim is a staple of any Spring/Summer wardrobe. Topshop, Keys Court, have just released their S/S ’17 jeans and we can’t get enough. This season the focus is on championing individual style – ankle grazer, distressed, high-waisted and boyfriend jeans. Whether you rock a retro or relaxed look, this collection of jeans caters for all – there’s a reason Topshop jeans form the basis of women’s wardrobes the world over! For denim jackets, take a trip to Levi’s on Paradise Street. Their women’s Type III Trucker Jacket is a true icon. Featuring Levi’s signature orange tab, it’s flattering fit and rich blue tones make it the perfect jacket for evening drinks at Wahaca’s rooftop terrace.

The 80s is back. Okay, at least for this Spring/Summer. We’re talking power shoulders, brooches and colours louder than Brian Blessed. Topshop and Zara have a great selection of throwbacks, including power suits so sharp they should be illegal. If you’re looking for punchy prints though, Flannels on Peter’s Lane is the place to go. We love Dolce & Gabbana’s Maiolica Cropped Jacket. Pair it with its Rose Chain Purse for the ultimate 80s look.

Another Spring fashion trend we can’t get enough of are embroidered clothes. Simple pieces brought to life with pretty, floral embroidery – what’s not to love? Head to Zara on South John Street and seek out their Plumetis embroidered jumpsuit. It’s delicate embroidery and cool, flowing fabric is the perfect festival look. Wear it with Zara’s embroidered velvet bomber jacket for a more relaxed look, guaranteed to up your cool factor.
