April is so much about transitional dressing that we’re hunting down practical and pretty pieces to see us through till the sun starts shining (we’re eternal optimists here at IMAGE). From nautical cover-ups to alternative suiting ideas, here’s what’s top of our shopping list this month.

PREPPY FOR SPRING

High street stalwart Massimo Dutti has teamed up with Vogue photographer and best friend of Kate Moss, Mario Testino, for its SS16 campaign. Models Anna Mila and Jon Kortajarena feature and have us frantically propping up our wardrobe with Massimo’s cute preppy classics. This cute nautical outfit from their SS lookbook is a classic spring/summer look that every woman should own.
