Try a more contemporary twinset
Twinsets are making a comeback in time for the milder weather.
The two-piece top and jacket combinations were made famous back in the 50s, as part of a kitsch all-American look and 60 years on they're still in style.
Rather than relying on cardigans, the more contemporary way to wear the twinset is with a box-style jacket, adding some retro chic and top-class feminine tailoring.
The Angela jacket epitomises this new look, with its short sleek design made from modern tweed fabric.
Woven in rich mix of colours it comes in either camel hue or purple multi-tweed blend, meaning that you have many options when it comes to complementing it with a blouse underneath.
The round-neck design is not suited to collars or geometric necklines but the soft ruched neckline of the Delos top makes it a perfect pair for your fitted jacket.
Why not match the champagne-coloured top to the camel jacket and the violet option with the darker jacket?
The beauty of a cropped jacket is that it needn't impact on the rest of your outfit, meaning that its shorter length allows it to work well with any shape of skirt or trouser.
Complementary colours worn on your bottom half help to create a workwear look, eschewing classic confidence through your on-trend spring wardrobe.
The new-look twinset also works wonderfully when used as part of a smart casual look, especially when paired with some comfortable courts or cute kitten heels.
To match in with the camel-cream twinset option, it's all about mixing together slightly different hues to create a multi-tonal effect.
This could be a top opportunity to try out some spring-time pastels in the form of the Becca rose pointed kitten heels, adding a little lift and an injection of girly glamour.
