Spring Shower Essentials
The British weather can be notoriously unpredictable in spring. Sunshine can quickly turn to showers and vice versa, while chilly mornings can become warm afternoons; and dressing for the changeable weather is a challenge!
With the weather so erratic, a lightweight raincoat which can be thrown on during unexpected showers is a spring essential (and extra brownie points if the raincoat is packable or "foldaway"). A sturdy but comfortable pair of wellington boots is a great choice of footwear this season, making sure your feet stay dry and comfortable in the wettest weather and on any terrain, from a country walk to the walk to the office. Finally, a spacious but stylish bag is the perfect finishing touch for any outfit and gives you somewhere to store your fabulous new raincoat - and maybe an umbrella!
In today's journal, we bring you our pick of products that are perfect for spring and surprise April showers. Chosen for their ability to deliver lightweight protection from the elements, our spring selection combines superb functionality with attractive design so you don't have to compromise on style to keep dry!
