Morning ladies, it's hard to believe that we've only a week left until the end of February.  I don't know about you but this year seems to be flying by at an alarming rate.  With lighter mornings & brighter nights one thing is for sure & that's Spring is just around the corner.  So with this in mind today I thought we'd take a look at the 10 items every wardrobe needs for the coming season & where better to look than Baukjen, who with their timeless modern day edits never fail to disappoint.

So let's jump straight in with this statement monochrome dress that would be perfect for teaming with a either this leather jacket or this winter white cardigan until temperatures heat up.

Of course you'll know by now that one thing my wardrobe certainly can't do without is a pretty white top or two & this above beauty with its broderie anglaise neckline is perfect for a pairing with jeans & layering under a blazer, like this one.

Naturally stripes should also always feature in your wardrobe with at least a breton & sweatshirt making the cut.  Although with them being such an effortless neutral I'll bet you probably have a few more stripe tops hanging in yours.  Mix an off the shoulder cotton top with stripes & you really do have top perfection.  This type of top is just ideal for adding style to a simple pair of jogging bottoms like these, worn with a pair of jeans (see below) & a pair of ballet flats for timeless everyday style, or even paired with a maxi skirt for days where you feel like swishing.

Now there's not many of us who don't love jeans & personally I wear mine both for everyday life as well as 'going out out'.  The above beauties are the perfect shade for Spring/Summer & I just love the slightly looser fit that equally works well with trainers or heels for a night out.  Of course for that perfect timeless day look wearing with a white loose fit shirt, like this one, will always look effortless & never go out of date.

More stripes but this time in the form of a sweatshirt & in monochrome.  Ideal for pairing with a smarter cropped trouser like these.

Then for Spring there really is no better casual jacket than the utility style shacket, which Baukjen have this season also released in white, blue & pink.  Team with jeans, leggings, cigarette pants to maxi dresses & skirts the options are endless.

Of course sunnier months means the excuse to break out the white denim & a cropped wide legged pair such as the ones above would look perfect teamed with anything from a white shirt, to breton top, to this denim shirt.

Other items that make my 10 items that every wardrobe needs is a slogan sweatshirt, such as the one above that would go perfectly with this everyday maxi skirt & trainers.

Then of course to complete my stripe addiction a timeless shirt in a classic colour combo like the one above would be ideal for pairing with these cargo pants.

Finally what wardrobe would be complete without a silk scarf that can be tied at the neck for a little 'je ne sais quoi'.

Back to today & I'm styling up two new in pieces I've been sent by Baukjen that are going to prove real Spring wardrobe staples & naturally featured in my top 10.  Any guesses which two pieces I picked?

Well I just couldn't resist their utility jacket, which is going to prove so useful on those cool Spring days.  I plan on wearing mine in a whole host of different ways including with jeans, shorts, maxi skirts, cashmere hoodies not to mention pretty white tops.  Also due to its longer length it's ideal for teaming with leather leggings as I've shown below & I just love the internal drawstring that can be either left undone or drawn in to add definition to your waist.  In terms of sizing this is true to size, I'm wearing a UK8 & it fits perfectly worn with a simple tee but equally there's enough room to pair with a cashmere knit/sweatshirt.

My second piece just had to be their off the shoulder breton.  You'll know by now I have a huge weakness for off the shoulder pieces.  Plus this breton has extra style detailing in the three quarter sleeves & longer length.  Because I love my off the shoulder pieces to fall loosely & casually I sized up to a UK10 & as you can see it's perfect for teaming with my leather leggings but will equally look stunning worn with jeans, shorts, cigarette pants as well as a maxi skirt.
