Spring looks like it could be here, sunny but still a bit cold is acceptable and if you have been shopping this weekend, you may have noticed that the last few winter coats have been reduced and will soon be gone forever, (NB now would be a good time to get a winter coat for next year).

If you are in the market for some new clothes for spring, what would be the wise thing to shop for right now?  In my opinion the best investment is a shirt. Spring will be the ‘season of the shirt’ you mark my words! Shirts and blouses are everywhere on the high street, they are easy-to-wear, you can find great printed styles for going out and more subdued options for work and… they are fantastic for hiding lumps and bumps. They can be layered under knits, worn under a pinafore dress  or tucked into a full skirt or pencil skirt, or just worn with jeans, (flares, boyfriend or skinnies take your pick) If you were watching Zoe Ball on the One Show last week you would have spotted her wearing this lovely swallow shirt by The Kooples  a similar one can be bought from Warehouse (pictured below) and for even more affordable options try H&M and Primark and of course, charity shops are a good place to look.
