This week’s top picks include an assortment of items for a range of climates and colours because Spring weather is varied and unpredictable. Sunny and mild one day, grey and chilly the next. Hot sun, wet rain, hail or snow. Spring can be four seasons in one month. It’s the most unpredictable season in Seattle, and I find myself wearing a bit of everything until July. At the moment it’s alternating between a cold and a mild Spring here in Seattle. I hope it warms up more soon.

1. ASTR Tiered Short Sleeve Dress

This dress looks good in every colour. It’s lightweight, drapey, and lovely in motion. The puffy sleeve makes a statement, yet collapses to relax the volume. It looked great on my curvy client with a medium sized bust, who twirled around in it for a while. She will wear it with sneakers, sandals, and combat boots, and bought two colours. It’s crease-resistant, not see-through, and runs big.

2. Caslon Stripe Split Neck Long Sleeve T-Shirt

Striped tees with V-necks are elusive, and this one is soft and comfy. The fit is gently fluid, and the neckline looks tidy. The stripes match at the side seams. It’s a fab simple item with a bit of pizazz. Lightweight, versatile, and easy to wash. Might run a size big.

3. Madewell Washed Leather Motorcycle Jacket: Brass Hardware Edition

This is a beautifully made modern classic which will last for years if you take care of it. It’s pricey, but you can get 20% off. Its gorgeous antique brass hardware makes a subtle and unique statement and adds a dressy touch to the topper. Wear it with anything from jeans, leggings, utility pants, shorts and joggers, to dresses, skirts, cocktail wear and ball gowns. Make sure you assess the fit with the correct layers underneath. It’s lightweight and can work as an indoor jacket.

4. M&S Collection Denim Jacket with Stretch

This is a neat and tidy denim jacket that’s offered in five Spring and Summery colours at a good price. It’s not soft, but harder like regular thick cotton twill. It has a robust utility vibe to it. It has a 1% stretch component so it’s not as stretchy as you might prefer. It has a fab tailored fit and is sufficiently short if you like short jackets like I do. It’s a slam dunk with dresses, skirts, and wide pants and jeans with higher rises. The mint green is more mint in person and the pink is like a very soft lilac. It runs narrow so you might need to size up if want a more fluid fit.

I am always on the lookout for denim jackets because I wear them a lot in the late Spring and Summer. The shocking pink earned a place in my wardrobe because it creates a fab matching complement with two old pairs of shoes, a bag, and a few guitar straps. I’ll wear it with the Summery dark blue, white, orange, blush, red, citron and light blue in my wardrobe. With a pair of olive carrot pants too. The collection shows my shocking pink complement with the jacket. Perfect match!

5. Mephisto Dominica Sandal

These are very comfortable sandals that have worked on a range of foot shapes because of adjustable velcro straps. The footbed moulds to your feet and has good support. The platform adds height, and is easy to walk in. You might need to size up if you have long toes. It can work for bunions too. They are lightweight, on trend, and come in an assortment of colours. Well worth the rave reviews.
