Oh how we love the weekend, two full days away from work (apologies, if you are one of the many that have to work this weekend, but this is relevant to you too, so keep reading). If you are planning a shopping trip, you may come home a bit disappointed, with cries of “It’s just so summery, I couldn’t find anything…”
It’s not just you so don’t worry. It’s that tricky time of the year between winter and spring. Americans call it ‘Transition’, we just call it ‘Difficult’. We never know quite what to pick from our wardrobes or buy from the shops. Even though the crocuses are popping up and we may have seen the last of the arctic weather, there is still a nip in the air and we need to dress accordingly.
Pepperberry, our clothing brand, are on hand to bring you our essential guide to dressing for ‘right now’. We have selected some of the best pieces from our current collection that will look great whether you are working all weekend or whether you are out and about.
Biker Jackets are a classic, a great investment and will never date. Pepperberry’s Leather Jacket is a jacket that you will never want to part with and it is also perfect for this time of year. This one has ribbed panels at the sides, so it will stretch and fit perfectly over your boobs. The two rows of statement buttons give it a military feel. This jacket will look great with skinny jeans, a bodycon dress, or pencil skirt.
The Printed Cardigan is the perfect spring buy, available in a floral print, it has an extra wide ribbing which will create a lovely nipped in waist. The Printed Cardigan looks great buttoned up with indigo bootcut jeans or with skinny jeans. Try it with our Coloured Skinny Jeans in camel or navy or with the Drape Capped Sleeve Dress, as shown.
The Blue Stripe Shirt is a classic tailored shirt, with a pin tuck detail running down the front. Pastels are big news this spring and the pale blue pinstripe follows this trend. This shirt looks great with skinny jeans and knee high boots, add a blazer and a scarf and you have a great spring look.
The Big Button Coatigan is a great buy at this time of year, the current weather is not cold enough for a big thick coat, so the Coatigan is a perfect solution. It is available in navy, it has super flattering ribbed detailing down the sides and around the waist, ceramic buttons and it is fully lined in a contrast colour. A great cover up for spring.
