2. Statement Outwear

The parka is back: this Dries van Noten rainjacket nods to another of this season’s trends – the big, bold print. A patchwork of 200 individual cloth fragments, it’s patterned with floral tapestry and camouflage.

3. Off-Duty Suit

I Never knowingly overdressed: this versatile cotton suit in charcoal will see you through any number of occasions this spring. The relaxed, slimfit shape lends itself well to Oliver Spencer’s modern British aesthetic.

Acne Studios Antibes Pop Cord Beige Cotton 2b Sb Jacket (£550), Acne Studios Boston Pop Cord Beige Lightweight Cotton Slim Fit Trousers (£280), Max Pittion Sunglasses Bigsby D-frame Acetate Sunglasses (£385).

4. Bold Prints

Ostrich Leather Bomber (Poa), Military Band Trousers (£350), Savanna Sandals (£750).

5. Muted Tones
