Spring is finally upon us so there’s never been a better time to brighten up your wardrobe. The fashion you see on the catwalk can seem a little overwhelming, so we've compiled a handy list of high-street spring styles to keep you on trend through the Spr

All you need to update your look is a few staple items which you can pair with your existing favourite pieces and our top picks are a great place to start. What’s more, the spring sales are on now in many high-street stores so it’s the perfect time to grab a bargain.

April Showers

Although we're enjoying sporadic spots of spring sunshine, we still need to be prepared for the inevitable showers. What's British spring/summertime without a bit of rain anyway? Pick up a waterproof rain mac so you can face those showers in style; in our opinion, the bolder and brighter the better.

Hooded Rain Mac, £55 from Topshop

Marvel in Monochrome 

Bold, eye-catching prints are all the rage at the moment. Stand out from the crowd whilst keeping your look classically cool with a fabulous monochrome print. To ensure you’re totally on trend why not select a design adorned with a fabulous floral pattern.

Flirty and Floral

Pretty floral prints are dominating the high-street this season. Best teamed with pastel tones for a flirty feminine look, these tapered trousers will carry you from work to weekend and will look great with both heels and flats.

Floral Print Slim Trousers, £35 at River Island


Patterned Shirts

The patterned shirt - once a dreaded item you begged dad not to wear, now the pinnacle of men's fashion! Pair with jeans and polished brogues for a smart look, or shorts and plimsolls if you're going for a casual look. Opt for as many colours and patterns as you dare!

Patterned Cotton Shirt, £19.99 at H&M


Short Shorts

Another year on and classic denim isn't going anywhere. We love how versatile and how effortlessly cool it is. Opt for a more washed-out look for summer and sport your shorts above the knee if you’re not afraid to show off those legs.

Bleach Stretch Denim Shorts, £25 at Burton

Fancy Footwear

Trainers are no longer confined solely to the gym and sporty styles are everywhere this season. Not only do they provide all day comfort, surprisingly we’re seeing how they can make a fail-safe addition to heaps of outfits. Keep it classic with black or brave it and go for bold and bright.
