20 pieces we want to buy from the online high street right now

They say April showers bring May flowers and they also say (although not as vocally) that it is the perfect month to do some online shopping.

A new month brings new beginnings. The seasons are changing and these shifts cause our sartorial choices to transition too. We are slowly moving away from the layers of winter and looking for pieces which herald the incoming warmer months, but we also want pieces that will work for us until that time comes.

Colour and print

The online high-street is sparkling this month.

There are pops of colour and print on everything from dresses to mules, and fabrics are slowly but surely getting lighter, with linen and cotton pieces becoming more predominant in stores.


However, if the weather decides to take a chilly turn, pieces such as the Topshop slip dress below can be beautifully layered with a light knit polo-neck or T-shirt. The leather-look trench and colour-block blouse from Asos will be perfect when worn with a pair of jeans and white trainers, with the trench ideal outerwear for cool nights.

The open collar white shirt from Cos gives an elegant yet directional twist on a classic. And the leopard-print mules from Zara will bring a point of difference to any outfit, putting some of Carrie Bradshaw's Manolo's to shame.

So go forth and celebrate the beginning of a new month.

There may be showers, but the sun is most certainly on its way.
