Smart spring dresses

With a colour palette inspired by the Chloé SS19 show, this look feels incredibly premium – making it ideal for your working week (and any weeknight engagements, too). Think tonal shades of khaki and beige, coppers and mustard hues. Don’t forget the print of the season (or should that be decade), too: animal print.  The Mango wrap dress (modelled above) has an elegant side split and is made from a slinky fabric, so it’s great for layering as it won’t look bulky at all. Pair it with a classic trench coat – it’ll see you through spring and beyond, and work with every outfit imaginable.  Feeling the chill?  Knee-high boots are back, and we love this white pair from Mango. Along with a layered cotton roll-neck, the hits of white help keep the look fresh. This quirky lattice bag is an absolute find from M&S, and adds a statement finishing touch.  Things warming up?  Ditch the roll-neck and swap your boots for block heel courts or Mary-Janes. Take advantage of the dress’ V neck and pile on some necklaces. Sun’s out, sunnies on: grab some tortoiseshell ones to compliment the outfit.  Main image: Whistles Imra balloon sleeve trench, €229,
