5 ways to master the art of transitional dressing

Dressing for the Great British weather during the bit in between winter to spring is no mean feat.

One minute it’s pouring with rain and the next minute you could be fooled into thinking it’s a summer’s day. Our top tips? Layering is key. But so is investing in key pieces you can wear right now, then wear again (and again) later.

To master the art of transitional dressing and to help bridge the gap between winter and spring, we’ve rounded up 5 ways to be new season ready now. 

 

Swap Winter coats for spring jackets

Say goodbye for another year to your beloved winter warmer and hiya to this spring season’s jacket update.

From trench coats to cord-style jackets and biker jackets to boxy-style blazers, swap your heavy quilted coats for a style that will fend off rain during downpours but one that's lightweight enough to throw over spring jumpers. These picks will even work over tees in summer. When picking a colour, add some vibrancy into your wardrobe with pastel pinks, rust-shades or subtle shades of pale green and blue.

 

Swap tights for midi skirts 

As we move closer and closer to spring, it's time to stash away your 60 denier tights that served you well through winter. This season, give your wardrobe a new lease of life and invest in skirts with longer hemlines.

Think midi and maxi skirts. These options below, are ideal for rocking bare legged when the temperature is looking up and they pair great with a basic plain white tee, chunky knitted jumper and trainers. For colder days, swap your sneakers for boots.

 

 

Swap trousers for midi dresses 

Midi dressesshirt dresses and slip dresses have all become a bit of a buzz word in the world of fashion. Why? They’re easy to wear, effortlessly stylish and the perfect all-in-one ensemble for layering over T-shirts, roll necks and underneath big knitted jumpers.

Although we're not suggesting you should do away with your trusty trousers completely, why not shake up your day-to-day looks with mighty midi dresses you can wear now, and love forever? 

Swap long boots for ankle boots

Spring equals boot season. But instead of your beloved thigh-highs or high-leg boots you pounded the pavement with during winter, show off a bit of calf this spring with an ankle boot you can wear with, well, everything.

From jeans to skirts and dresses to jumpsuits, ankle boots like these leopard print, snake print or plain black pair, will keep your feet cosy all season-long, whilst adding a spring-edge to your look. 

Swap hats for hair accessories

See you later hat hair! This spring, hair slides, headbands and Alice bands are stealing the show. Up your hair game with these the instant outfit updaters that will take you from winter to spring in a flash.
