Ad | Gifted. March has arrived so I think it’s appropriate to start talking spring fashion. This week, Frankie Bridge is releasing her latest collaboration with Oasis: Frankie x Oasis – Lovely does it*, a feminine spring fashion line. I got a sneak preview of the collection and also received two items which I absolutely love.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t know who Frankie Bridge was but checking out her previous line with Oasis, I know she’s got a great taste in clothing. This hasn’t changed in this year’s collection with the new collection showcasing gorgeous prints and classic styles in warm and earthy colours. For those of you who don’t know and are curious, Frankie is a singer, presenter, and author of the memoir and mental health awareness book OPEN.

Back to the clothes. I picked out two pieces that are slightly outside of my comfort zone but it’s always good to experiment, right? I think so anyways and seeing these photos, I think it worked out pretty well.

The Balinese patched midi dress is made in a stretchy material meaning no need for a zip or buttons to do it up. I was slightly nervous at first that it wouldn’t go over my bust but it fits perfectly. I love the fabric, it’s so soft. It’s heavy enough for the dress not to ride up and fairly thick not to feel too cold.

It’s perfect to wear on its own when the weather permits but also to layer up with a cardigan or in my case, with a denim jacket. I went for a blue denim jacket to give this look a spring feel but I think it would look great with a black jacket too. The look is topped off with a pair of sandals to keep with the spring and romantic feel but for a street style look, swap for a pair of trainers. Or if you want to rock it up, a pair of Dr Martens boots will look cool.

I own a couple of patterned dresses since previously and most, just like this, has a black base to stay in my comfort zone. I love this print! It’s cute and stylish at the same time. The shoulders are slightly puffed and I like that they have a polkadot pattern, complimenting the flowers and together giving this midi dress a vintage feel.

The second garment from the Frankie x Oasis collection is this womens duster trench coat. I didn’t think I’d be a trench coat type of person and on its arrival I wasn’t too convinced either. After giving it a once over with an iron, rolling up the sleeves and trying it on in daylight I fell in love! It’s fairly thin so definitely a spring trench coat but made with a heavy fabric making it feel luxurious. I love the storm flap on the right hand side of the chest part adding an asymmetric look. So simple, yet effective.

To make the coat pop as much as possible, I put it on over a full black outfit. You guys know me, I’m most comfortable in black. I kept the black sandals from the previous outfit, to give it a softer look than boots would. I like to play around with different textures and styles, using faux leather in the trousers, velvet in the sandals and the jumper is a classic knit. The jumper is actually from a previous Christmas campaign with Oasis but because it’s thin, it works all year around. With a duster trench coat like this, even an all black outfit transforms into spring.

I’ll admit, it was a bit cold taking these photos but I mostly blame the storm. Once we have proper sunshine, I can’t wait to wear both these outfits again. The midi dress outfit is perfect for a date night and the trench coat outfit when casually popping into town for some drinks or dinner.

Sign up to get more news on the Frankie x Oasis collection. I’ll be sure to get my hands on the boiler suit, it looks fabulous. The full range is available online and in store on 5th March.

Have you started shopping for spring fashion yet? What do you think to this midi dress outfit and duster trench coat look?
