It's time to say goodbye to your coat or, at least, keep it safe until next season. Just because, spring is officially here. A time of the year kinda difficult to get dress, some days are really warm, while others are more wintery. In short, it's a completely mess. In that sense, outerwear garments are specially important. It's time to opt for lighter pieces and, at the same time, we always want to include more daring and bold colors. In this special, I compile the key outerwear trends for this spring-summer 2016 through a selection of key runway looks. In addition, I propose you my favourite must haves inspired by catwalk trends. Happy Spring everyone!
