There's something about spring that gives us a much-needed energy boost. Maybe that's why so many fashion brands have an athletic edge to their spring/summer 2014 collections.

On the catwalks, this has naturally been taken to realms beyond what we'd realistically wear, so how does it affect what we'll be picking up on the high street?

The key is finding the right balance between smart and casual (and the added bonus is you'll always be comfortable. Win win). It's entirely possible to look and feel ace if you wear it right. Think bomber jackets over a nice, clean tee or something simple with a really amazing pair of trainers.

We're liking the new collection from Boxfresh, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary (makes you feel old, right?)


It's all about energy, so the garms are splattered with pops of colour and sporty details. There's some seriously nice tees for kickabouts in the park and an ace footwear-only pack in store for long, lazy afternoons in the pub garden.
