The Edit: Spring Must Haves on Laura Rebecca Smith Fashion Blog

THE DRESS - Whistles Stripe Midi Dress
Nautical is a one of the key trends this Spring/Summer and I welcome it with open arms - I love anything stripped, navy or reminiscent of South France. The size of the skirt and pocket details add glamour and fabulous-ity - just add a red lip and floppy hat.

THE SKIRT - H&M Short Skirt
This catagory was a choice between the suede skirt or the denim. Suede wins because we see denim most years where as 2015 is all about embracing the 70s shapes & textures. Make the most of it and bring down your cost per wear - I want to see yours worn about by the time September rolls around!

THE JACKET - Cos Long Belted Coat
Whether it's sleeved or sleeveless the longline belted coats are perfect for the transitional weather (and the unpredictable nature of the British weather). Throw this over any outfit and it'll be elevated by the sleek tailoring.

THE JEANS -ASOS Bell Flare Jeans
You'd have to be blind to not realise Flares are the must have denim shape this season. A pair of cork wedges, flatforms or platform heels will give you the height to show off the wide bottoms without sacrificing height.

THE TOP - Warehouse Off Shoulder Top
Peasent blouses are so gorgeous and reminds me of summers when I was a little girl. The off shoulder detail adds femininity to your outfit and allows you to show off your sun kissed, freckled skin.

THE TROUSER - Topshop Stripe Wide Leg Trousers
Wide leg trousers are seen everywhere - palazzo, flares, culottes - but staying true to myself I prefer the more tailored version. The print fits the Nautical trend perfectly and the material is light enough to wear in the sunshine (if it ever appears).

THE SHOE - Oscar De La Renta Brouges
This shoe is perfect for Spring! The pastel colours are really fresh and the tassels add some fun to a formal and structured shoe. (Plus they'll keep your feet dry from the unpredictable rain).

THE SHIRT - New Look White Shirt
I don't think this needs explaining. You can wear it with just about anything, for any occasion, in any weather...

THE ACCESSORY - Accessorize Wide Leather Belt
Belts are an essential accessory which were seen all over the catwalk shows. Pop a thin rope belt into the waist band of your flares or tie a thicker one into a knot around your waist with a cold shoulder slip dress.

THE BAG - Miss Selfridges Envelope Clutch
The simplicity of the shape and clean colours makes this the perfect companion to some of the more intricate and busy designs you'll be wearing. And the leather detail makes a nice change from the popular suede texture.
