Red's editor picks her favourite fashion buys for March
If there’s anyone we go to for spot-on shopping recommendations, it’s Red Editor Sarah Tomczak. She’s always on hand for outfit inspiration and tip-offs on independent labels worth a spot in our wardrobes as well as homeware buys to elevate your interiors in a matter of minutes.
For our Red Shops newsletter, Sarah is curating a monthly edit of the items she’s currently lusting after. Smart, mood-lifting fashion buys that you can treat yourself to now, or add to your wishlist for later on (although she's got great taste, so we can't guarantee these bits won't sell out!) and beauty picks to add to you routine for the new season.
With spring around the corner, Sarah has picked a timeless midi dress that you can wear year after year, a showstopper blouse that will never go out of style and a classic blazer that will quickly replace your winter coat. To add edge to your outfit pair these with the leather clogs on Sarah's wishlisht or wear them with the stunning gold sandals she's coveting for summer.
Here are the 15 buys she has her eye on this month and how to wear them.
The timeless spring dress
“I’ll never tire of a timeless spring dress – the pleated bodice and square neckline really elevate this Boden iteration.”
The cool sandals alternative
“I love clogs with chunky socks and jeans on cooler days, but they’re a nice alternative to sandals to add edge to a dress.”
The showstopper blouse
“A showstopper blouse never goes out of style. Make it white and you’ll reach for it year after year. This is great with jeans now but I’d also wear it with denim shorts and tan sandals in the summer”
The versatile blazer
“This is blazer weather – say goodbye to your winter coat – and this one manages to feel both classic (timeless shape) and unexpected (herringbone weave and lighter buttons)”
The chunky shades
“A collab between Cos and the super cool Linda Farrow, these chunky tortoiseshell shades will make everything else look instantly cooler.”
The must-have wide-leg jeans
“Top of my shopping list right now is a high rise, wide-leg jean in ecru. I think I can stop my search!"
The trendy shopper
“Logo mania shows no sign of abating, so I think this Marant shopper is a good way to buy into the trend. Great for your laptop, your supermarket shopping or even as a beach bag.”
The irresistible striped jumper
“Just when I think I don’t need another striped jumper, one comes along that I really can’t resist. Case in point…”
The denim cap
“I’m still in the mood for a cap – for weekends, on the beach. I like it as a modern way to top off a Breton and navy blazer. This denim cap from Arket is perfectly pre-faded.”
The smart trainers
“Sporty but somehow still smart, thanks to their burgundy oversized ‘N’, wear these with polished joggers and a fine knit.”
The effortless trousers
“Every time I do one of these shopping edits, I find a piece I obsess over, that I’m in no doubt will instantly refresh my entire wardrobe. This month it’s these trousers – modern, cool and effortless."
The chic scoop-neck tee
"Take an everyday essential and make it instantly more chic – that’s what Cos have achieved with this scoop-neck tee. Tres jolie."
The perfect gold sandals
“I’m forever on the lookout for the perfect gold sandals – I’ll wear them any evening over the summer (as good with shorts as they are dresses) - but also winter too. These look pretty excellent for heel height, comfort and style.”
The seasonless denim skirt
“I don’t have many skirts and I’m always on the lookout for one that will work with the rest of my wardrobe but doesn’t feel too ‘safe’. The mid-denim of this Rixo skirt makes it seasonless and I love the braided trim and longer length.”
The elevated jumpsuit
“Add another jumpsuit to your collection, this one has a utility feel but could easily be elevated with strappy heels.”
Happy shopping !
