Spring is in the air and, af­ter a fairly mild win­ter, it’s al­ways ex­cit­ing to see a change in sea­son and the clothes that ac­com­pany it.

This spring is pretty with a punch – bright colours of candy pink and yel­low to make you look twice, while graphic prints, stripes and flo­rals are back with bite.

One of the most wear­able trends this spring is stripes, and they’re a cinch when it comes to styling. You’ll be spoiled for choice in bright and bold colours from skinny to wide bands.

For a fresh take on the clas­sic go-to blue and white, try an off-the-shoul­der dress which eas­ily tran­si­tions from mid-week to week­end – just swap your ac­ces­sories.

You’ll find stripes in crisp, de­con­structed shirts and soft flare sleeve blouses. Try them with high waisted denim jeans or a skirt. And, as the tem­per­a­ture heats up, turn to a flowy maxi dress with chic san­dals.

The pret­ti­est pal­ette of the sea­son comes in an ar­ray of pas­tel shades, sure to soften any wardrobe.

Build­ing an out­fit with colour is easy with the right foun­da­tions. Mix a soft pink denim jacket with white, boyfriend jeans and add a tee in pink’s best friend, grey. Punc­tu­ate sor­bet-toned sep­a­rates with a black and white printed piece.

Look for ac­ces­sories and shoes in blue, mint and lemon tones or try a soft pink nail pol­ish.

Spring brings a change in prints – flow­ers are bloom­ing and eye-pop­ping fruits are mixed with an­i­mal prints and colour­ful birds. It’s a happy re­minder that sum­mer is on the way.

If you dare go head to toe blooms, then opt for a sub­tly em­broi­dered jacket or full printed skirt with a plain tee and denim jacket. Or try a flo­ral cami over block colour pants with a pair of slides.

Still not ready? Add a fun shaped ear­ring or neck­lace to your favourite out­fit.

To keep you in­spired dur­ing your work­out why not give your ac­tivewear a spring clean? Work­out clas­sics are get­ting a chic up­date with luxe fab­rics, mesh pan­els and del­i­cate em­bel­lish­ments.

Prints are flow­ing through your work­out too with trop­i­cal prints and flow­ers on crop tops and tights. Try colour-block­ing in joy­ful bright pieces to up­lift mono­chrome clas­sics.

A light­weight jacket in a block colour will freshen up your trusty black tights or lift your heart rate with a new pair of sneak­ers in a fun colour.
