Easter break

Now’s the time to pep up your wardrobe with some colour – from sweet pastels to primary brights, says Beth Dadswell

Written by Beth Dadswell

Spring has finally sprung. The daffodils are in full bloom and the magnolia trees are blossoming. So why not take inspiration from nature this Easter, and introduce some spring pastels into your wardrobe.

Start with a pair of coloured jeans or a pretty floral-printed dress, then add a long-line cardigan, fitted jacket or belted trench coat for warmth. On cooler days, a pair of charcoal-grey wool tights will keep the chill at bay, while a pretty printed scarf thrown nonchalantly around your neck will look stylish, too.
