The Buyers Edit: Spring Essentials

6th March 2019

The Lakeland Leather buying team work hard sourcing and designing all our collections. Our SS19 womenswear collection was created months ago (got to stay organised!) and now they are extremely excited to see the launch of it in stores and online. So to introduce our SS19 womenswear we asked our lovely buyers to pick their favourite pieces from the collection with tips and tricks to styling them.

Hayley, Buying Director

“I love the Bethany long sleeve top and Joelle padded gilet. Together they’re the perfect step into spring and everyone loves a bit of coordination to their outfits! I would wear on brighter days to match the sunshine or for a colour boost on a gloomier day. The printed flower design is really uplifting. Keep it simple with jeans and you’re good to go every day.”

“The Briony pocket dress is just such a chic jersey dress – and who doesn’t love pockets on clothing?! If you’re not feeling bold enough to brave bare legs, I would wear it over a pair of white cropped Robell trousers for a classy and casual look. The ¾ length sleeves make it a great trans-seasonal choice. You could pair with a lightweight scarf to accessorise or with your favourite leather jacket (mine is the Grasmere in blue!) for a stylish look when the sun’s hiding.”

“The unpredictable English weather means a cosy knit is always an essential! The Hollie cable knit is the ultimate mood booster in the vibrant aqua blue.  I would wear with neutral colours or plain white to avoid colour clashes. Pair with jeans for an easy day-to-day look or with a midi skirt for the weekend.”

“It feels like everyone is going crazy for puffer jackets, me included! They’re so easy to just throw on when you need to and the Sauli puffer will go with nearly every outfit. It’s very lightweight and provides the perfect amount of insulation for when it’s warm, but not go-without-a-jacket-warm. Definitely a spring essential.”
