April: What To Wear Now

Early Spring is somewhat unpredictable when it comes to the weather, in England especially. We have a blistering hot weekend and then temperatures take a nose dive the next day. It’s paramount to have a bank of wardrobe staples for days when the weather won’t make up its mind.

The Shirt

A chambray shirt is always a good choice. Layer it under lightweight knitwear for cooler days or roll up the sleeves when it’s warmer.

The Lightweight Jacket

A utility jacket is a versatile piece, it works styled with skirts, dresses and even boyfriend jeans. I choose Khaki as it’s a neutral colour that fits with an array of hues.

Or if you’re wearing a long-sleeved top you can opt for a sleeveless jacket that’s long enough to cover your bum…

The Breton Top

This is my Spring wardrobe must-have. Pair it with skinny jeans and trainers or dress it up with a luxe skirt. Long sleeves will guarantee arms stay warm on colder days and wide crew necklines will add a feminine touch.

The Trouser

Cropped trousers work well with all shapes. Whilst it’s still a little too cold for skirts and shorts, it’s never too early to show some ankle after months of being tucked away in winter socks.

The Shoe

It’s not quite warm enough to dig out your sandals from the back of your wardrobe so compromise with a backless loafer, ballet flat or lightweight trainer in a spring colour.

The Long Sleeve Dress

For days when you don’t fancy lugging around a heavy jacket, opt for a long sleeved dress with a knee length hemline that you can style with a lightweight blazer when it gets cooler.
