STEPPING INTO SPRING
It’s time to banish the roll neck jumpers and long sleeves to the back of the wardrobe and start shopping for pieces that are perfect for those warm hazy evenings and sunny weekend getaways. Our new collection of seasonal favourites will have you stepping into Spring with style. Here's a round up of some of our most loved new arrivals that are sure to leave you cool as a cucumber this Spring / Summer.
If you are looking for transitional pieces that will see you through the seasons, then you needn’t look any further, as we have the coats and jackets that are going to keep you covered as well as chic. When it comes to Spring, versatility is key - you never know when you’re going to get caught in a shower or a heatwave (we wish!) so opt for styles like macs, bombers and trenches at this time of year.
This gingham number by English Factory is a mash up of a modern silhouette and a traditional check - the perfect balance for work and play. Wear buttoned up to the collarless neck over white trousers and snakeskin courts for office attire or keep it casual and let it hang loose over a white sundress, ideal for a weekend-worthy look.
Here’s a trench coat, but with a twist. Freshen up your classics with this updated version of your everyday trench, ideal for highlighting your most flattering part - your waist. Use the cropped length to pair with high-waisted separates such as mom jeans or midi skirts. And what’s more, the tonal hue of this version makes it easy to pair with pretty much everything.
The bomber jacket is hailed as the 2016 hero piece, the staple that made being comfortable, cool. This geometric, power pastel 2018 take on the original bomber is not only smart thanks to it’s versatile colour way, but adds a forward-thinking element due to its crisp white panelling. It can be worn over a midi dress with heeled boots to smarten up the silhouette or perhaps with a graphic tee and straight leg jean for a more casual look.
We couldn’t count the amount of times we’ve heard the same answer to the question “what are you wearing tonight?”. We’re all guilty of it - the answer? “Oh, just jeans and a nice top”. Now don’t get us wrong, you can’t go wrong with a great top and jeans, but we want to give your look a little something extra, with some of our most playful yet fashionable new season tops.
Ensure you are the hottest dog in town with this adorable tee by Blake Seven. The uplifting colour palette and fun print ensure things aren’t taken too seriously so why not keep the rest of your look as fanciful? Add some metallic shorts and slider sneakers for a sports-luxe inspired look or give this tee a new era and pair with a pink pencil skirt and strappy stilettos.
How do you like your eggs in the morning? Us? We like them just where they are - front and centre. Don’t be afraid to make a statement with your style and what better way to do it than with this egg-cellent t-shirt by Compania Fantastica. Dress this version up with a pleated mini skirt and ankle boots but for a more off-duty look, all you need is white denim and slider loafers.
We’re all for business in the front and party in the back and that’s only one of the things we love about this gingham top from Elli White. The sky blue hue, dropped peplum waist and tie details at the back make this our summer essential that’s going to keep on giving. Wear with white, blue or black denim and keep your locks tied high to show off that back.
We know it can be intimidating but there is no time like the present to embrace the brighter skies and reveal those pins. Yes girls, those that have been in hibernation since Sep 17’. Springtime is all about the midi so take a breath as we introduce you to the three styles set to cover all your upcoming occasions. From lunch with the girls to wedding guest attire, there’s a midi for us all.
Stripes? Check. Silk? Check. Bows? Check. What more could a girl ask for. With a dropped waist and asymmetric hemline, this midi makes looking cool, easy. Doing all the work for us with it’s tonal colour palette and draped fit, simply pair this style with sneakers for an off-duty look or barely-there heels and a clutch for cocktails in the city.
Looking for something with instant fash-points but without the fuss? We’ve found the answer to those prayers with this two-in-one striped version by English Factory. With an adorable 60’s inspired sweetheart neckline, button up front and candy-coloured hue, we didn’t think this dress could get any cooler - but it does. The white tee that’s layered underneath brings this style into the noughties and gives us ultimate day-time goals. Pair with white sneakers and a denim jacket for easy-breezy dressing.
Who said tea dresses were boring? This vibrant version by Skeena S will leave you feeling anything but blue with botanicals by the bundle. The contrasted fabric of chiffon and silk give off a luxurious finish whilst the collared neckline and frilled hem adds interest to an otherwise ordinary shape. Set to make hearts swoon this wedding season, ideal for church, garden party or chateau.
We love nothing more than an outfit where you don’t have to overthink - cue, the jumpsuit. Once on, you really don’t have to do much more than accessorise, and thats the best part, right? Whether you’re looking for something for your 9-5, your weekend or after dark, this trio of trend-worthy styles will have you ready in a one hit wonder!
Work appropriate jumpsuits are a no brainer. Granted, they aren’t easy to come by but we aim to please here at OTL, so say hello to your new boardroom ready all-in-one. Complete with a structured finish, contrasting sleeve and a wide, cropped leg, there is no better way to do workwear in style. Highlight your smallest part and pull in the waist of this version and don’t forget to pair with some killer courts. Preferably, silver.
We can’t get enough of girl gang gingham. It might possibly be the most-loved print of the season and works well beyond the school playground. For summer days in the city, opt for head-to-toe check with this navy and white version from English Factory. The bandeau body and tie-detail straps provide just enough “cutesy” to a daring shape. The winning factor? That tee comes with it - win, win!
The most chic way to do cocktails in the sun is with a jumpsuit and when it comes with an off-the-shoulder bardot neckline, slim fit and kick flare, we couldn’t deliver more sass even if we wanted to. Due to the striking yet simplistic shape, go extra with your accessories including loud and proud earrings and a printed heel.
