Spring in 3 words? Feel good fashion! But how do you create the ultimate Spring capsule wardrobe? The foundations of our wardrobes. Here are the top picks from Stringers for staple items that you can buy now and simply style up or dress down for that effortless look throughout the seasons.

Whistles Leather Jacket, £330; Boss Orange Jeans, £129; StringersWhistles Leather Jacket, £330; Boss Orange Jeans, £129; Stringers

The leather jacket is an all-time staple; throw a reworked classic over a crisp shirt or an elegant bat wing tee and jeans combination to add a bit of edge into an outfit when it isn’t quite cold enough for a coat.

Moda in Pelle Chelsea boots, £139.95; StringersModa in Pelle Chelsea boots, £139.95; Stringers

TIP: Try rolling up your jeans if wearing Chelsea boots to really draw attention to intricate detailing.

Whistles Dress, £95; StringersWhistles Dress, £95; Stringers

A great transitional piece, a floaty black dress can be paired with tights, statement boots and a clutch bag for the evening, or completely relaxed with bare legs, trainers in the warmer seasons to channel an effortless sports luxe feel.

Taifun Quilted Jacket, £140; StringersTaifun Quilted Jacket, £140; Stringers

TIP: To add a bit of grit to a simple black dress, throw on a leather jacket and keep accessories minimal; let the statement of block colour outfit do the talking. Alternatively, take sports luxe to the next level by adding a quilted jacket to the mix – this will add texture to your outfit, when in reality it’s just a simple addition.

Gant White Shirt, £80; Part Two White Shirt, £89.95; StringersGant White Shirt, £80; Part Two White Shirt, £89.95; Stringers

For instances where you want to balance a relaxed look with smartness and comfort, wear a boyfriend style cardigan over a staple white shirt and black jeans complete with a statement black bag; a muted colour palette and trainers keep it fuss free and understated, with a zip detailed bag is an easy addition of glamour.

Superga Pumps, £60; StringersSuperga Pumps, £60; Stringers

TIP: This is a great transitional outfit, so why don’t you switch the trainers for buckle boots to inject a little bit more glamour into a laid-back look, or create a softer feminine look with metallic silver pumps?

French Connection Striped Shirt, £75; StringersFrench Connection Striped Shirt, £75; Stringers

When it comes to shirts, sometimes it pays to borrow from the boys and this season it’s blue and white striped designs being coveted. For a lesson in laissez-faire attitude, keep it classic paired with pumps, but if your look errs more on the side of girly, French Connection has the answer with their new season take, made modern with a stylish frilled grandad collar and lightly frilled cuffs, while white crochet applique draws the eye to the front of the shirt which will make you the envy of all your friends.
