Have your say

The sun is shining and Wearsiders are making the most if it. Cara Houchen and photographer Corrina Atkinson head to the Bridges to snap shoppers wearing their spring wardrobes.

CONVERSE are the shoe of choice for Wearside shoppers enjoying a little bit of blue sky and sunshine this week. Over half of the fashionistas we stopped were sporting them so if they are not on your wish list they should be!

It was nice to see some freshly false-tanned flesh on show while we were on the hunt for Sunderland’s best-dressed – the different mahogany shades definitely made a change from heavy knits and fur coats.

Although it may be a little pre-emptive – knowing the British weather it will be snowing next week – less layers for now are the way forward. We loved the uber-flattering bodycon dresses, the injection of soft denim and the splashes of luminous pink which brightened up our day.

Well done, Wearside – keep it up and hopefully the sun will keep shining!
