The signs have begun. The mornings have started getting lighter, nights are getting longer and pretty soon, the temperatures will (finally) begin to rise. Spring is on the way.
While the thought of the looming better weather is exciting, the transitional months can also prove to be a difficult time to know what to wear. But fear not, we’ve got you covered. From lightweight layers to pops of colour, we show you how to make winter-to-spring dressing a breeze.
Ahh, layers. Don’t you just love ‘em? Whether you’re dressing up or dressing down, layers are the most important aspect to anyone’s transitional wardrobe. And, those chilly spring mornings followed by an often hot commute to work and warm afternoons and evenings, can lead to a lot of confusion about what to wear.
We’d suggest opting for some quality, lightweight cardigans, sweaters and jackets to throw on and take off depending on the temperature. For the guys, a deconstructed blazer (one broken down to its minimalist function, with no padding) is the ideal piece to add to his wardrobe. Perfect for rolling up and popping into a bag when on the move.
Far & Wide
Once the temperatures begin to climb, skinny jeans quickly become too uncomfortable to wear in our hot climate. Wide-legged pants are the perfect solution to this, not only because of their breathability but they also look damn cool.
With the obsession with all things 70s continuing to grow, a pair of wide-leg pants are essential for every woman’s wardrobe. Style yours with a short-sleeve crew-neck sweater and platform heels to complete the look.
Spring is the perfect time to reintroduce colour into your wardrobe after a season of darker, wintry hues. From minty-fresh shades to chalky pastel hues, a pop of happy spring colours will make all the difference to your transeasonal looks.
We’d suggest starting with simple touches such as a lightweight scarf in vivid blood orange, or a pair of block-heeled wedges featuring a vibrant print. When it comes to welcoming the spring/summer months, the brighter the better!
