Curated by those in the know, discover our modern style must-haves.

Welcome to Style Guide. 

For the first instalment of this video series, style influencer Nadia Baker takes us through her picks for a spring wardrobe refresh, with looks primed for warmer weather and a season of celebrations.


Build up from the bare essentials

Enhance your feminine form with subtly sculpting undergarments. Look to bras with wide straps and adjustable hook and eye fastenings to offer great support for all bust sizes, and high-waisted briefs that won’t cut into skin. Fill your drawer with Fantasie’s nude wireless bra and full brief to wear underneath warm-weather whites, or Triumph’s fashion-meets-function co-ord in deep maroon and lace.

 Find your dream linen dress

No spring wardrobe is complete without a breezy, wear-anywhere dress. Commonry’s geo print midi-dress in 100 per cent linen, for ultimate warm-weather breathability. For a long-lunch ensemble, add a belt to free-flowing styles like this, and team with vibrant sandals. Or, when the occasion calls for weekend comfort, trade heels for white sneakers and grab a holds-everything tote.

Trends of decades past reign supreme this spring, with baggy dad-style jeans by Levi’s on our denim radar. Nadia’s tip? Make trends your own by styling them however feels most comfortable to you. Here, she opts for a mid-rise fit to show just a little bit of skin.

Treat yourself to lace details

For a confidence boost from the inside out, treat yourself to a lace set. In the David Jones styling suite, Elomi’s briefs give Nadia a little extra coverage, while the adjustable underwire bra delivers a comfortable and supportive lift. And for elegance personified, opt for soft shades of seafoam, pink or lavender by Fayreform.
