    It’s that time of year again, where it’s out with the winter wardrobe (we’re not sorry to see the back of those black tights, let us tell you) and in with the fab new spring clothes.

    But don’t fall at the first hurdle. While investing in a few choice trends is a great idea, the key to building the perfect spring wardrobe is investing in the style staples that’ll see you from season to season.

    So we teamed up with Amazon Fashion to reveal the key items that need a starring role in your new-season wardrobe.

    The 24 hour dress
    Make that dress work extra hard: the perfect style will take you from office to party without so much as a change of shoes. With that in mind, you can’t go wrong with a classic shirt dress. Go for a tailored striped style or a simple white shirt number.

    The jeans update
    It’s official, skinny jeans are out. Instead, invest in some flared jeans (best worn with a pussy bow blouse or high neck top) or the ‘new’ boyfriend jean, a slouchy yet flattering style that is best rolled up at the ankle.

    The wear everywhere boots
    Ankle boots are idea for that transition from winter to spring, and come in styles to suit all tastes. We love a pointy flat worn with frayed ankle grazers, and heeled tan boots are stunning worn with a floral midi dress.

    The classic cool shirt
    Much like the shirt dress, the classic white shirt will never go out of style. But that’s not to say you can’t experiment with different cuts and styles. Try a sleeveless pussy bow shirt with some flared trousers, or a cropped one with a midi skirt.

    The modern hoop earrings
    Hoop earrings are getting a makeover for spring. Forget delicate hoops, this is all about making a statement with oversized, geometric and embellished designs.
