Layering is the obvious choice, you can wear a cute Spring dress with an oversized knit or faux-fur jacket. It’s a transitional period where you can bring pieces from Winter and mix with lighter textures and pastel hues.
This Jane Norman dress adds a fresh colour to my sartorial palette, the darker berry tones of Winter are being substituted for sugary shades but by adding over the knee heeled boots I stay warm and keep it transitional. It’s an item that would be suitable for many occasions, from dinner to the office or even a wedding. The pockets give it a relaxed element whilst the side pleats add a sophisticated edge.
The trench coat has certainly become a favourite, it adds tailoring and elegance and works particularly well in this outfit as it sits just below the dress. The pleats in the back give it a feminine, almost skirted shape and the large belt loop in the back gives it a high-end touch.
My tip would be to mix textiles and styles, a beanie is perfectly acceptable with a long skirt and heels, why not? you could add a padded jacket and maybe swap for some trainers when doing errands. I’m a comfort > style kinda girl , however I won’t sacrifice wearing an outfit I want to wear because of the weather, I’ll just think of swapping particular elements to make it work!
