Spring

Many of my fellow style bloggers are excitedly heralding Spring as time to bring out the linen suits, straw hats and deck shoes. For those of us in London, the main difference is that some days I might be able to get away with not wearing a scarf and gloves. Still, given the beautiful weather for the last couple of days, it's hard not to look forward to the new style options that warmer weather will bring.

The biggest difference is in changing colour tones to suit the brighter weather. This can be changed without necessarily affecting the warmth of your clothes, which is nice over here where the longer days and bluer skies do not necessarily bring increases in temperature.

Brown, cream, light greys and light blues all suit the sunnier weather well, and now is an especially good time to start ocasionally swapping a suit for odd jackets and trousers. This gives you the chance to introduce small amounts of cream tones or linen fabric to your outfit without looking as if you've stepped out of the American deep-south.

  1. Whilst looking like you've stepped out of the deep south is fun, when it rains you feel like a fool. As here:

    Soon it will be warm enough to wear that suit again.
