It's the most wonderful time of the year! And I'm not talking about the festive season - I'm talking about the multitude of sartorial options that this warm transitional weather allows us to explore.
Even more exciting is the fact that in 2019 we no longer play by the rules, and being offbeat has gone mainstream. The comeuppance of 'ugly' sandals, hiking shoes and dad jeans is all the proof you need to confirm this.
But even so, hyperfeminine pieces - fit-and-flare skirts and knee-length cascading dresses - have also secured a comfortable spot in the street style scene for two Spring/Summer seasons running now.
These observations should therefore inform your upcoming fashion purchases, making for quite a fun approach to this season's shopping list.
With that said, these are my top picks for anyone who wants to stand out this spring:
