We are starting to see some signs of spring emerging, so it’s time to ditch those heavy coats and jackets in exchange for some lighter outerwear.


Yes, you read that correctly. Fabulous capes were featured on several autumn catwalks in 2019. Celine had a beauty in camel with a single chain clasp. The high street has been quick to follow as always, so we can look forward to seeing this style all over the shops this spring.

The cape style is not just for coats, but evening gowns, dresses and jackets as well. Valentino’s bright yellow cape coat was hard to miss when Melania Trump wore it on her visit to London.

Capes can be found with slits for arms or sleeves, and the beauty of this is you can throw a cape over whatever you are wearing, especially if it is classic knee length.

On the high street, Zara has a fancy tiered cape for £77, and also offers lovely mid-thigh length capes in classic shades of black or beige. They fasten at the neck and are reasonably priced at £49.99. Not a huge investment for a look that will update any wardrobe.


Most of us think of cardigans on the older generation or old school uniforms. Well, think again! Cardigans are back big-time in every conceivable shape, colour and style, and with a pair of jeans or skirt, no one will think you are wearing your Granny’s cardi.

The coatigan is useful if you do not want to wear a full coat. As its name suggests, it is a cross between a coat and cardigan – a useful addition to any wardrobe that will never go out of style. The length gives you a little more coverage and will see you through the slightly cooler weather until we hit summer.

Again, Zara spoils us for choice. They have a great bright pink cardigan for £25.99 and this pop of colour will brighten up any outfit. Animal print is still everywhere and TopShop have a great animal camel print cardigan for £39.

Perhaps if you are lucky you might have some cardigans in the back of your closet. Dig them out, dress them up with a sharp scarf and you’ll be right on trend.


I’m not talking about sportswear to work out in. No, this trend is now so popular for both men and women that active wear is being worn out of the gym for everyday activities. Expect to see dressy jogging pants and tops wherever you go.

The polyester look has been replaced with every imaginable fabric – even glitter tops. As so many A-listers are now wearing this look, it’s difficult to think of many places where it wouldn’t be accepted; except of course the Royal Enclosure at Ascot. Some standards must be maintained!
