Capsule Wardrobes Essentials for April

April has started with the promise of sunshine and some lovely mild weather. I may be being optimistic with some of these but here are my must haves for the month…

Milder weather means lighter knits like this slouchy linen sweater in the prettiest blue – also in a fiery red.

Spring flowers are starting to appear so a tote covered in them seems appropriate!

I’m feeling the need for a Spring makeup update so a sheer red lipstick and a light bronzing powder should give an early season glow.

I may not be able to afford any of the clothes from Tom Ford but if I say it quickly is £200+ too much for a stylish new pair of sunglasses? Probably.

For the days when optimism isn’t enough to keep me dry a lightweight packable mac is essential.

On the other hand when the sun is shining the first pair of sandals of the season should be on trend tan wedges.

And finally two floral additions – a flippy skirt and something in must have yellow – these trousers caught my eye, first for the colour but also for the first glimpse of bare ankles.
