From icy pastels and dusty shades to bold cobalts, high street retailers are pushing a palette of blues for spring. Light tones stand out across tailoring, while head-to-toe combinations of complementary blues were also spotted.

Another key palette for the season focuses on light, neutral shades, including sand, cream and off-white, on everything from smart summer tailoring through to lightweight outerwear.

The bomber jacket has cropped up in collections from the catwalk to the high street for several seasons and spring 16 is no different. This season’s newest updates focus on light, silky fabrications finished with embroidery.

Open-collar details cropped up in many retailers’ collections, most commonly on patterned or colour-blocked shirting, but also as a new season update to light summer jackets.

From the formal end through to a more relaxed casual style, double-breasted jackets and suit blazers stood out across the high street collections as the key tailoring trend for spring.

The athletic look continues to influence the high street but retailers took this sporty style into a cleaner, simpler direction this season. Classic sportswear items are updated, such as longline bomber jackets and over-the-head tops.
