Read on for our top tips for giving your style a quick and easy update this spring...
It's the season for stripes
Nothing says spring like a classic Breton stripe - this look returns every year and will always be a spring staple.
How you wear stripes will depend on your body shape. If you are a...
A Neat Hourglass - your top and bottom are in balance so you can wear stripes anywhere. Have fun!
A Triangle - horizontal stripes are a great way of drawing attention to your upper half. Always wear plain colours below the waist.
A Rectangle or Inverted Triangle - opt for vertical stripes to follow your straight body shape and show off your flat hips and bottom!Curvier body shapes like
A Full Hourglass or Oval and you are better wearing stripes as accessories - opt for a fabulous statement bag, scarf or other accessory.
Step out in new shoes
The season’s footwear options are many and varied, from chic flats to lace-ups, platforms to bright statement shoes and everything in-between, whether you're a Classic, Natural or Dramatic, there's plenty to choose from!
While we're waiting for the weather to warm up choose a closed toe that can be worn with trousers or a skirt at the office, or with denim for a more casual look.
These silver pointed flats from Next will add a sophisticated edge to any look - a pointed toe will elongate your leg but beware of the ankle strap if your legs are shorter, opt for a classic ballet flat or a brogue-style shoe if this is you!
Go for the chop!
If you fancy a real change this spring then why not try a new hairstyle?
Changing your hair is one of the quickest ways to refresh and update your look and with celebrities including Cheryl Cole (above), Myleene Klass, Alexa Chung and Caroline Flack all opting for the chop, now is the time to shed the tresses!
The hairstyle of the season is either a 'lob' (a long bob that sits on the shoulders) or a blunt bob - both can be worn both sleek and straight, or with waves.
Be sure to discuss your new hairstyle with your stylist. Make sure that the style you're going for will suit your face shape and style personality - although short hair can look like it would be low maintenance, it often requires daily styling and more frequent trips to the hairdresser.
