Today officially marks the first day of Spring in the UK (finally)! And although warmer weather still feels distant on the horizon, we’ve rounded up the best spring fashion arrivals to bookmark for when it does come around. From longline denim and pared-back tailoring to golden goodies and puff-ball dresses, here we present your weekly breakdown of investment-worthy newness…

Welcome Spring! A quick pop into &Other Stories right now will bring you face-to-face with a multitude of lightweight linens and romantic florals. Designed for spring’s social circuit, this versatile two-piece forms a sleek look while cut from an airy, easy-to-wear fabric, whether beach or city bound. Embrace the dreamy aesthetic of ballet-core with some pointy slingbacks for an outfit that is en pointe.

Every season, designers entice us with new and exciting ways to wear classic jeans, but the recent shows have been all about the longline maxis. Graze the floor with this denim number by Tibi, a brand fresh to MatchesFashion’s site (what took so long, is our question?!). As shown by many designers this season, denim maxis offer endless styling opportunities. Go formal with Jigsaw’s Hopsack blazer, collarless to add a modern twist on a classic, and round off with Mango’s leather sandals and clutch bag for added elegance – the perfect allies to complete every look for your events this season.

If you’re contemplating ways of introducing a metallic shade into your wardrobe, gold should be it. For a more refined look, opt for JW Anderson’s signature-style knotted bag; an &Other Stories necklace and Victoria Beckham’s gilded shades to embellish your ensemble. Offset the shine with Ceffin’s cotton blend knitted vest and low-rise slouchy jeans – chic but understated for a more muted take on the loud trend.

For those with an impending event requesting a cocktail dress code, a solid choice is this monochrome & Other Stories baby doll ruched midi dress. Bonus: it’s made from pulp-formed Lyocell, making it a conscious addition to your wardrobe, sure to be worn for seasons to come. This billowing number is perfect for spring weather, contrasted with a chunky heel sandal and sleek structured sunnies. Top the look off with Anya Hindmarch’s fish-shaped mini clutch, for added wit no matter how formal the event.
