As we are on the cusp of Spring it is time to start thinking about making some seasonal additions to our wardrobe. Whilst it may have been all about the Stars and Stripes for Super Bowl Sunday in the States, when it comes to fashion for 2013, Squares and Stripes will be taking centre stage.


Angular patterns and clear cut lines were the focus on the runways. Whilst some may opt for a blatant reflection of the latest trend with a piece like the Marc Jacobs embellished jersey top (£700), there are also a number of ways to give a more subtle nod to this style. For example, we love the Giuseppe Zanotti’s abstract and gravity defying Omega Sand platforms (£585) and the Solange Azagury-Partridge Square Spinner 18-karat gold ring (£1,500). The House of Holland striped jersey dress (£135) also presents a quirky take on contrasting lines, meanwhile the St. John Milano striped jacket (£975) will be a classic addition to your wardrobe.
