Happy New Year everyone! Did you enjoy the festive break? We certainly did.

It’s business as usual now though… Christmas is out the way and we’ve kickstarted 2013! However, we’re left feeling like our wardrobes could do with a facelift… does anyone else agree? When you hate everything you own and want to start afresh? Yep, that.

We may have experienced (and still be experiencing) the second wettest year on record, but that’s no reason to don our drabbest, most uninspiring clothes! Spring/Summer is ALLLLL about the bright stuff and though you may not be able to galavant around in a flippy skirt and floppy hat right now – you can still incorporate this season’s hottest trends into your transitional wardrobe.

Ward off the cold in one of Spring/Summer’s must-have items, the biker jacket. This PU Biker Jacket, £55 is a firm favourite of ours and is a move on from the standard black version. While the weather’s still cold, wear over a chunky knit and oversize scarf! Likewise, this Military 4 Pocket Jacket, £45 is a great way to layer up if you’re bored of your heavy winter coat. We suggest teaming it with a slubby tee and cute jumper, boyfriend jeans and Converse trainers – not to mention the essential beanie hat and knitted scarf.

Another great transitional piece is this Embellished Peplum Sweater, £30. It’s cute and girly, while smart enough to wear out in the evenings. And don’t forget, it’s a sweater – so extra warmth too! We also love this Button Back Soft Shirt, £25-£26, the long sleeves make it more transitional and the monochrome stripes are bang on trend! And finally, this gorgeous Print Textured Crepe T-shirt, £32 will add much more than just a pop of colour to your working wardrobe. During the colder months, layer under a smart cardi and pair with a leather pencil skirt and black tights – swoon!
