It’s nearly March which means that Spring is well and truly on the way – cue the warm weather. Of course, while Spring is meant to be warm, the weather doesn’t always play ball, sometimes the start of the season can be extremely chilly. Pretty outfits are calling our name – cutesy dresses, printed skirts and gladiator sandals, leaving us with a bit of a dilemma. Do we dress in pretty spring styles and freeze or dress like it’s still winter – it’s a hard one?
The answer: neither. If there’s anything that the catwalks have taught us, it’s that when there’s a will, there’s a way. For successful spring dressing that doesn’t leave you shivering, you need to get creative. Mix and match spring and winter fashion and you can ensure you’re both warm and stylish.
Add some leggings
Those stylish spring dresses calling to you? It might be too cold to wear some of the beautiful SS16 dress designs on their own. But team them with leggings and you can ensure that you’re both warm and stylish. If leggings aren’t your thing, a pair of tights can work just as well.
As well as teaming your spring dresses with leggings or tights, adding a piece of knitwear over the top, like these aran sweaters can be a good idea. Popping a cosy jumper or cardigan over a stylish dress is a great way to ensure whatever the weather throws at you, you’re covered.
Swap your winter coat for a leather or denim jacket
Transitional weather is too cold to go coatless but often too warm for a winter coat. How about swapping your parka for a sleek leather jacket or a soft denim number? This will keep you nice and warm should the weather take a turn for the worst, but won’t make your outfit look too wintery.
Don a maxi skirt
For a pretty spring look, a maxi skirt is perfect. The great thing about these floor length skirts is that it’s easy to hide a pair of tights or leggings underneath them. Fake that lovely spring look by teaming a maxi skirt with a black or grey roll neck, a leather jacket and a hidden pair of tights.
Crop top and high waisted trousers
Dying to get your crop tops out once again but the weather’s just too nippy? That’s okay, team your fave crop tops with a pair of high-waisted trousers or a high-waisted skirt and tights. You can still show off your washboard abs – a girl can dream can’t she, but without getting too cold.
Keep your colours light
Spring is all about light and bright colours, so make sure to bare that in mind when picking your outfits. It might be cold outside, but that doesn’t mean that you should stay huddled in dark winter colours. To give your look a spring vibe, pretty pastel hues and light tones are a must.
There you have it, everything that you need to know about dressing for temperamental spring weather.
