The warm weather we have recently experienced has made it feel like spring is well and truly here. But don’t be fooled, it’s not time to store away your black tights and winter woollies just yet! It is notoriously difficult to dress appropriately during British springtime thanks to the unpredictable weather – who could forget the arctic temperatures we endured this time last year? A classic fitted shirt is a wardrobe must-have for the smooth transition from winter to spring. Dressed up or dressed down, cotton shirts are smart, flattering and can be worn during all seasons.
For a fresh spring look, choose ladies shirts in candy colours such as pastel blues, pretty pinks and mint greens. It wouldn’t be spring without flowers, so incorporate this perennial pattern into your outfit with a sweet ditsy print floral blouse. Cotton shirts with three-quarter length sleeves will see you through the summer and can be layered under jumpers during chillier spring days. Satin shirts are a luxe alternative to classic, cotton button downs. They can be styled with jeans for smart, casual occasions or can be dressed up with a suit for a polished and professional look. This sumptuous fabric looks best in rich jewel shades such as purple, red, fuchsia or turquoise.
A splash of colour will instantly refresh a tired wardrobe for the new season. Traditional Jermyn Street shirt maker, Hawes & Curtis, has a stunning selection of cotton and satin shirts for women in a variety of beautiful colours and prints. Their ladies ranges are separated into three main fits so you are guaranteed to find one to flatter your figure.
