Stripes, searingly hot colours and staples that will make your wardrobe work overtime. 

Let's face it, spring dressing can be a minefield. Between the catwalk and your Instagram feed, you're still figuring out how to do head-to-toe beige, whether lime green is really a colour we can pull off and what really takes the gong as the print of the season (Hawaiian or geometric: we're still undecided). 

Most importantly, we're still in the throes of deciding on those all-important investment purchases. Cue, the capsule wardrobe: those five or so pieces that will form the DNA of your dressing identity for the season. Whether it's a trusty T-shirt, a go-anywhere dress or a head-turning two piece that screams fashion know-how, consider these to be the building blocks of your future fashion self. Thankfully, Louise Cooney was at hand to chat about her style and her favourite spring essentials. Watch and learn, y'all.
