Transcend into an urban chic look with Valentino’s round-necked crocheted lace jacket featuring concealed press stud buttons and darts for a feminine shape while these leggings will put a spring in your step! Vero Moda’s twist on a sporty jacket and bomber blazer balances femininity with functionality. Complement the look with these printed palazzo pants in abstract spring print hues. Look flatteringly smart in tailored high-waisted pants featuring a wide-leg cut with this Alexander McQueen built-in lapel lace jacket.

Bring instant pizzazz to your cocktail-ready look with this Emilio Pucci one-shoulder blue lace dress with an asymmetrical neckline. Or what about this high-waisted trail skirt by Safiyaa which adds modesty and screams elegance. Grey matches well with red as showcased in the above bell bottoms ensemble – red pants matched with a grey bodice featuring a lacy overlay. Accessorise with statement arm candies and heels in matching hues to bring the whole look together.

This intense-red Valentino lace jumpsuit with detachable cape will make you stand out from the crowd. Glam up with gilded accessories, such as this Tory Burch clutch and Nine West criss-cross platform sandals in metallic gold. You can never go out of style in this vintage-inspired sky blue jumpsuit by Paul & Joe featuring a pretty lacy back – simply darling for garden parties. You can match that with a floral orange flap handbag and white gold carved coral flower earrings. An epitome of elegance is this floor-length pale-blush Valentino lace gown with ruche sleeves and belted waist. It is just gorgeous with a Miss Selfridge clutch in cream and silver, and pearl drop earrings.
