Wear now, wear later: uncover how to layer spring’s new arrivals in our latest style video, exclusive to Monsoon. Providing endless ways to outsmart the weather, our hand-picked pieces comprise the season’s must-have dresses, jackets and separates, expertly paired with essential knits and accessories for luxe looks that you can add to your wardrobe rotation now.
1. The Statement Jacket
Soon to be synonymous with our warm-weather favourites, the statement jacket also has relevance now. Showcasing an intricately embroidered design, this reversible style in soft ivory makes the perfect plus-one to this season’s key knits and dresses, as well as the lighter layers of the months that lie ahead.
2. The Tonal Separates
Rust-on-rust has been highlighted as a key style story for SS19 and there’s no reason why you can’t start championing the trend. Opt for tonal peg-leg trousers and a crisp linen shirt that’ll see you through spring and summer, and ground the look with earthy strokes of colour, from the camel roll-neck to the leopard-print bag.
3. The Tea Dress
How to wear spring’s floral tea dress in winter? Flatter its v-shaped neckline by layering it over a luxe grey roll-neck, accentuating the cosy-chic aesthetic with a nude-hued boyfriend cardigan. Crafted with a long-line fit and oversized horn buttons, this knitted design complements the colour palette of the print underneath, while keeping you suitably warm as we wait for the weather to warm up.
4. The Shirt Dress
*Bag coming soon
Save the style combination of shirt dresses and trainers for spring – for now, a little layering is required. Start with a long-sleeve tee to wear underneath a utility-inspired design, belting it at the waist for a cinched-in effect. Continue the tonal palette with heeled ankle boots in soft oatmeal and a colour-block bag that you’ll be wearing all season.
5. The Trench Coat
Renowned as a closet classic, the trench coat is back for SS19 with a whole new guise. Coloured in rust, this spring-proof style makes the perfect lightweight layer to next season’s fashion staples. Until then, wear yours with off-duty knits, denim and trainers, adding on a leopard scarf for a pop of print.
