SPRING STYLE | HOW TO DRESS FOR UNPREDICTABLE WEATHER


If you live in England then you know we have been experiencing mercurial weather this week. Hail one second and sunny skies the next. I know most days I walk to work with my large winter coat in hand just in case and that can get annoying. Dressing for ever-changing weather can be challenging but with a few key pieces you can look both fabulous and comfortable all at the same time. Here are a few Spring staples that will carry you through rain and sunshine, no matter where you are.


The first piece I want to discuss should be a staple regardless of the season and of course I am talking about the women's trench coat. To me, the trench coat instantly conjures images of the famous Burberry trench coat, almost as famous as their plaid scarf, it is the epitome of style and fashion, plus looks elegant in all situations. Everyone needs a badass trench coat and there are some great articles on how to style a trench coat, but personally I think it is the one piece that you can throw over anything, be it jeans, your work attire or a glittery bodycon, and still look achingly cool.


The next style staple is boots, all kinds of boots. They come in a variety of styles, colours, patterns and mechanics now so everyone can find a boot to suit them. I am a Chelsea boot fanatic myself but with a healthy appreciation for tan coloured boots in the summer, you can wear them with dresses for a country vibe or pair with jeans or tights for added warmth. They protect your feet and keep them cosy and are invaluable when you find yourself trekking through a muddy field or a snowstorm which is highly likely if you do live in England. I also find that a good boot is the perfect travel shoe, it can take you from day to night and from New York winters to the French Riviera. I speak from personal experience. You would be hard pressed to find a more versatile shoe than the boot. 


Unfortunately, when you are indoors it is customary to take your beautiful trench coat off and so what you wear underneath is often just as important as your outerwear. The great thing about spring is that it leaves room to do what you want. You can wear jumpers or dresses, it is that weird transition period between the cold and the warm so anything goes. I find that long-sleeved dresses, I like knit dresses for work as they fit me so well, are a great piece to have. They are easy to style and flattering as well. A spring trend has been statement sleeves so you can get some really cool spring dresses with fluted, billowing, lace and sheer sleeves as well. So even when your trench is off you are still warm enough.

Last but not least, a good quality jumper never goes out of style in my opinion and I am definitely that girl that keeps her jumpers out all year round. There is something so comforting about a soft cosy jumper when it's disgustingly early and you feel uber-fragile. ASOS are usually my go-to shop for a good jumper, all of their pieces have lasted me years. Spring is a great time to consider brighter and lighter colours, pastel jumpers are stunning but I have also really been liking bright sunshine yellow and cobalt blue. They are so eye-catching and instantly put me in a better mood.


Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful. I would love to know your style tips for dressing in unpredictable weather, so please leave me a comment down below. Don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin' and Twitter, it means a lot to me and I always follow back. It's almost Friday and the Bank Holiday is here so I am really happy. Going to try to get a video up for you all as it is about time I just bit the bullet and started a channel like I have wanted to for years. Take care.

What do you wear in unpredictable weather?

Love

  2. Long sleeved dresses are so beautiful, I always feel witchy/fairy-like in them. I also have an obsession with jumpers, but the weather here is always extremely hot and there is not much difference between the four seasons really, haha, I would love to have London's weather! I loved your post and recommendations, everything is so chic!

  4. I feel like British Spring is just like Michigan weather. One minute it's warm, and next thing you know it's cold and rainy!
    I do love a good jumper and trench coat.

  10. Yess, the weather in England is so unpredictable ! Last week there was a hailstorm for 5 minutes,can you imagine? Back to your post, I really think I need to get a trench coat as my thicker winter coats won't work for Spring. And I agree, a long sleeved dress is always nice to have when the weather is transitioning. Nice post Kiran. xx
