With the weather forecast is finally looking up in London this weekend, we’re so thrilled that the sun has gracefully shown his face a lot more.

While we dig out our sandals, shorts and t-shirts, the April weather can still be quite chilling in the evenings. we have put together two weekend laid back looks if you are struggling with the interchangeable weather.

Keep your staple pair of skinny jeans or these Rick Owens waxed denim leggings and switch up the top to this super nice silk and cotton Printed t-shirt from Each x Other,  pair it with these open toe wedge heel Marsell boots and suede shoulder bag with feather tail from Ann Demeulemeester.

Of course, don’t leave out some cool shades if you’re going to enjoy the sun. We recommend these Linda Farrow cat-eye sunglasses in the prettiest rose gold shade with mirror lenses.

To cover up in the evening, this gorgeous silky ruched bomber jacket from Haider Ackermann is beautiful, light weight, and dresses up the oufit with an oomph.

For a weekend brunch in the sun, we like this pair of Linda Farrow aviator shades to add a cool vibe. The bomber jacket is the classic style that keeps coming back to the trend every now and then. We are in love with this cropped bomber jacket from Jil Sander Navy in emerald green.

Keeping the rest of the outfit neutral to go with the bright jacket, we chose this cool Each X Other T-shirt to add a Parisian touch to the look, and these Jil Sander Navy Striped shorts are super flattering and elongating with a high waist fit. Finally, add some height to finish the look with these high top platform trainers from Junya Watanabe.

Hope you like what we picked out for you, share with us your favourite weekend outfit using #FeathersPicks.

Slouchy, free spirited bohemian style dresses and fringed accessories were sent down the on the Spring/Summer 2015 runway of Etro, Sacai, Stella McCartney, Dries Von Noten..etc.

Etro presented flowy chiffon with the design house’s signature paisley and floral print, portraying an artistic woman risen from the heat and sand of a desert, adorning and transforming into what she wears, like an opulent mirage.

Crochet board copyBesides layered tiered skirts and kimono jackets with Native American inspired details, there are lavishing bias cut silk georgette and beaded embroideries which were made ‘casual’ by mixing with denim, flat suede fringed boots and crocheted ponchos.

Oil Print copy

When prints not only exist in the 2D image and comes to life with bold embroideries and lace appliqué, even the craziest print makes sense and look stunningly beautiful.

On the SS15 runway, beautiful prints are seen in turqoise, coral, plum with iridescent fabrication, mixed with sheer chiffon or mesh panels.

To Tap into this bold trend takes a bit of courage, however a statement printed lace applique dress from Peter Pilotto is an easy, fuss free choice for beginners.

Mesh copyIf you are still quite insecure about wearing colours, a more muted colour palette was seen on Rick Owens, Alexander Wang, Balenciaga this season.

With mesh, flowy chiffon, sheer organza designers create layers of texture and volume for a spring sillhouette. We like this mesh bomber jacket from Moncler to add a touch of sports luxe into the look.
