The transitional seasons can be tricky to dress for. Come spring, while you might not feel ready to pack away your winter knits, you’re also unlikely to be relishing the thought of donning your bikini either.
You can find some middle ground with style essentials that will help to ease you from your winter to your summer wardrobe. These include:
1 - Leggings
Your number one spring style saviour has to be the humble pair of leggings. Cheap, comfortable and easy to wear, leggings can lighten up your winter knits and allow you to wear your sundresses and tunics months early.
Available in a variety of different colours, lengths and styles, there’s a pair of leggings to go with every outfit. You could also try the trendy patterned leggings that are currently trailing a fashion blaze.
Leggings are also super cheap, so pick up a few pairs and get more wear out of your summer outfits without breaking the bank.
2 – Sandals
Release your feet from the grip of your winter boots and free them with open toe sandals. Multi strap styles are perfect for spring, or why not try an open toe wedge to add a summery edge to evening outfits? The George women’s gladiator sandal in black has a slight wedge heel and stud embellishment, and will look great day or night.
Sandals look just as good with leggings as they do with bikinis, so don’t be scared to wear them either side of the hottest summer months to get maximum wear from your purchases.
3 - Vest Tops
Every wardrobe needs a selection of classic vest tops. Cheap as chips and available in every possible colour, print and pattern imaginable, a vest top can be worn so many different ways.
Wear with jeans and a fine knit in cooler weather, or denim shorts and flip flops in the summer sun. Wear under sheer blouses or over bikinis. The humble vest top is a real style hero.
4 - Maxi Dresses
Comfortable, cool and classy, the maxi dress is a spring style saviour. Choose casual jersey styles for relaxed daytimes, or an elegant evening style for after dark. Perfect worn with a cropped jacket or cardigan to keep out any chill, you can wear your maxis from spring to autumn with ease.
5 - Cropped Jackets
A cropped jacket looks great and adds an extra layer of warmth to spring and summer outfits. Choose denim or a cropped biker for timeless style, and wear over everything and anything from vest tops to sundresses.
Why not add a twist to your cropped jacket this year by choosing a collarless or sleeveless denim style? Or combine both denim and biker with the G21 Denim Jacket with PU sleeves.
These five spring style essentials will see you to the heady days of summer, throughout, and into autumn, in style. While the weather may blow hot and cold, you can be consistent in looking great, with easy to wear transitional season pieces.
