The transition from Winter to Spring, in terms of your wardrobe, can often be a chore. The weather is unpredictable so outfit planning is complicated and forever changing. Luckily, there are a few key pieces that you should always have to hand to see you through anything the springtime throws at you.
The Trench Coat
The Trench Coat is the perfect in between item. For days when the weather has not quite warmed up enough to be able to leave the house without a coat but it’s too warm to wear the thick faux fur number you’ve been sporting all winter, this coat will be your go-to grab. It’s light to keep off the chill wind and also somewhat shower-proof for the inevitable rain. Chic and practical define this must-have item. Perfect for work thanks to its classy, tailored silhouette, but also great for those casual days with a pair of jeans. Go for the classic Burberry Honey colour or go bold for the new season with a bright red. It’s a coat that will see you all the way through to summer, when you can finally ditch the coat (and remnants of winter) completely.
A shirt will always be a wardrobe staple because it will always fit to your own personal style. No matter the season or occasion, or whether you want something tailored, feminine or avant garde, there will be a shirt for any look you want to go for. This must have item is great for the spring weather; wear it as a chic stand-alone piece with a pair of straight leg jeans for a day-time look- perfect for sun-soaked brunches or a day of shopping. Or for a smarter option, layer one with a jumper and some tailored trousers. For a feminine look, get on to the frill trend with flowing fabric and pastel colours. A shirt is cool, versatile and the perfect throw on piece for this season.
Sunglasses seem like an obvious spring must have but they often get forgotten about when packing a bag for the day. The amount of non-cloud interrupted sun you’ll see in a day is unpredictable, so it’s always good to be prepared with a pair of sunglasses for when the rays do appear. As with the shirt, there are so many shapes and style of sunglasses to fit anyone’s look or face shape. Go sultry with a pair of elongated cat-eyed frames or cool and chic with some classic Rayban round ones. A good pair of sunnies will make any outfit look spring ready.
