The Boots Lace-ups give the impression that this girl will party on no matter what the weather or terrain.

Patrice Jackson, Student Web Editor

The Top A frilled sleeve adds instant girlishness to a simple tee. This one’s vintage and brings a light touch to graphic prints and clompy boots.

The dress Patrice’s boutique-bought dress taps into summer’s global traveller trend and slips effortlessly into festival glam.

The boots Wellies are so over…(at least when the sun is shining). Chunky vintage boots look extra cool with a midiskirt.

Daniela Cicelo, CEO

The jewellery Layering gold jewellery is a confident style trick. The pieces are solid and retro, taking Daniela into fashioninsider territory.

The patchwork jeans How to nail a unique denim look? Customise! Daniela patchworked these Levi’s and added turn-ups. She’s made a wardrobe staple into a statement piece. Bravo!

The mules These slip-ons from Céline are minimalist perfection. On trend yet evergreen, they announce Daniela’s style credentials from a mile away.

Aymie, Stylist

The Coat Aymie’s micro-hemline works because her Topshop Unique trench is long and louche. Her dark hair echoes that, too.

The Bag Aymie isn’t all about utility wear. This lustrous leather Givenchy Antigona shopper makes her monochrome look polished.

The Dress An Alexander Wang T-shirt dress is the most relaxed way to bare lots of leg. In clean white, it’s simple and casual, and would work nicely as a tunic over trousers, too.

Gemma – Freelance Creative

The Breton This is the epitome of French style, and Gemma’s Rodarte For Target top is effortless but a little cooler with those scrunched sleeves.

The Pinafore The modern shape of this denim Asos number is a grown-up way to do dungaree dressing.

The Dr Martens Brogue DMs are the clompy shoe to wear if you’re not yet ready for a chunky sandal. They add the perfect tomboy edge to Gemma’s
schoolgirlish style.

Philippa Bloom, Stylist

The top A figure-friendly approach to the current crop-top trend? Simply wear with a high-waist skirt. Sweet as candy, this marshmallow-pink H&M top is oversized, so a cool way to work pastels.

The accessories Glossy black leather keeps the edge on a soft palette. Office boots and a Sophie Hulme tote with gold-metal hardware show Philippa means business.

The skirt Scuba skirts like this Zara number hold great shape, looking bold, fresh and not girly in the least, whatever their colour.

Rachel Ingram, Fashion Editor

The coat Choose light and bright for a spring segue. A low-cost option from Zara is perfect, lifting classics like a Breton and boyfriend jeans.

The ripped jeans The knee gape has been spotted everywhere since the shows, and this style from Paige offers ventilation as the weather warms up. Nifty!

The sneakers Box-fresh, all-white adidas Superstars are shoe porn for the trainer obsessed. They’re the smartest way to work the tomboy trend.

Sophie Ball, PR Manager

The jacket Pastel snake + white denim on a waistcoat = Parisian rock meets Dolly Parton. This Sandro jacket adds a slick touch to an all-black ensemble.

The sandals Block heels are the best shoe for athleti-chic.Topshop’s fringed glossy leather sandals keep Sophie’s look work appropriate.

The culottes Smart chiffon All Saints culottes are cool, where a skirt would have been obvious. This is how to nail sports luxe.

Valentina, Blogger

The Dress Valentina’s Just Cavalli dress is super-spring-like. Multicoloured leopard print is a fun alternative to florals and just right for this time of year.

The Belt A vintage daisy belt brings extra personality to an already eye-catching frock. It’s skinny, so it’s subtle.

The Accessories Teaming autumnal accessories with bare legs and bright colours bridges the tricky transitional season. This Fendi Owl Baguette and those black heels do the job perfectly.

Rachel, Stylist

The Sunglasses Super-round sunnies are the eyewear statement this spring. Rachel’s Topshop pair makes that mismatched slouchy vibe look purposeful.

The Skirt Colour-pop neon lace is undeniably cheery. This feminine sporty when worn with layered sloppy sweaters and trainers.

The Converse An eternal sneaker classic adds a dash of old-school cool to any outfit, especially when mashed-up like this.

As the sun comes out, as usual, our eagle eyes are peeled for spring style inspiration. It's not just tricky transitional dressing we're trying to master though, with a glut of Coachella selfies and belly buttons on show across Instagram this month, we're also planning our festival wardrobes and beyond. For such important needs, plenty of London scouting is supplemented here with a trip to Austin, Texas (home of last month's SXSW festival) for festi-spiration. 

From darker hints of grunge and leather to pastels aplenty and denim, denim, denim, there is so much to learn from spying on the stylish. Light and bright make the perfect spring coats and be sure to start fraying your denims in order to stay on trend this season like the savvy sartorialists above...
