Remember not so long ago when you wished for bright crisp winter days and snuggling up in front of the fire. I absolutely love winter, it is the season that enables you to wrap up to the point where you look like the Michelin man and get away with it! Plus, the blessed beanie is a saving grace when you just can’t be bothered. But if you are like me, it gets to a point when you are fed up of layering, constantly being restricted by those chunky knits and never being able to control your inner thermostat; cold one minute, perspiring the next.
There has now been a glimmer of hope! The days are getting longer and slowly but surely the temperature is increasing, that must mean one thing! The Spring days cannot be too far around the corner! Slowly the layers will be diminishing, and the black, brown and grey hues being replaced with brighter colours, making way for you to show off your personal style (thank goodness)! The staples are still allowed however, as Winter isn’t quite ready to let go of its grip just yet!
I have probably just jinxed this amazing weather we are forecast now by saying all of this, and I am jumping the gun a little bit. However, here are some great go-to style suggestions for transitioning between Winter and Spring outfits, plus kicking the winter blues up the backside!
Instead of throwing on a knitwear layer, why not try adding a layer underneath a dress or shirt. A high neck long sleeved top or roll neck is a perfect addition when you don't want to wear a big, heavy coat.
There is no need to remove all coats from your wardrobe just yet, as there is still a chill in the air. Pairing a feminine silk dress with a more masculine item like a tailored oversized jacket, perfectly balances an outift. Add this with a pair of trainers and you have an effortless street style look.
You can't ever go wrong with an all black outfit, can you? Now instead of wearing heavy denim or tailored trousers opt for a lighter fabric, such as silk. Still as elegant and sophisticated, these trousers can be dressed up for work or down for that brunch date at the weekend.
Neutral hues are particularly popular for Spring 2019, however, if you are like me anything light coloured seems to attract dirt, then opting for a brighter colour is a safer choice. Putting together an oatmeal jumper and a patterned pair of trousers is a great way to keep things stylish without the dread of the possible laundry disaster!
Spring means the return of lighter coloured jeans! The classic light washed 'mom' jeans are a great transition piece and look perfect both with boots and trainers. They are so versatile, they literally go with anything!
A cosy knit and feminine floral silk skirt, the absolute cult outfit for Spring 2019. Perfectly pair with a pair of mules or if there is a still a hint of winter add some boots to keep the chill away.
