While spring may seem like its never coming around, the days are soon going to get a little longer and the sun will start shining a little brighter! That means incorporating a few of springs trends into your wardrobe now, with layers to get you through days that could be really cold or nice and warm.
Checkout our picks for your wardrobe that will help you get through this transitional time between seasons.
Nothing says spring like bold print. All over runaways as usual, print is going a new direction this year with luxe-baroquesque Italian prints (think 90s Versace) as well as the traditional spring floral or tribal prints. Before spring hits us properly, try a printed blazer if you’re feeling bold or just go for a printed scarf to introduce this great trend into your closet.
Colour is always the perfect way to boost your mood when its still grey outside and a pop of neon will shock you into a happy mood! Try a lace shirt in a neon shade or go for a skinny neon belt to break up an all-back outfit.

Transitional weather means lots of times when you can’t tell how hot or cold the day will be. The perfect answer to this problem is lightweight cashmere layers, which will keep you warm and cozy on a winter day as well as on a cool, summer night. Invest in comfortable cardigans, wraps or scarves that are easy to throw on. If pure cashmere is out of your budget, the cotton-cashmere mixes available on the high street are equally good options.

A trend that’s going nowhere is colored jeans. Bold hued last summer, this year its pastel colors. Pastel tones work beautifully with neutrals, so try your favourite shade with your winter faux-fur jackets or sweaters in nude tones while you wait for the sun to come out.
A big trend for spring-summer is a bold blazer in a bright colour. Perfect for layering, pick a bright colour to match your mood and pair with a crisp white shirt and slim black jeans. Or work the colour blocking trend (another trend that isn’t going anywhere this summer) and pair it with a matching colour.

The shirtdress has become a modern wardrobe staple with its easy seasonal adaptability. Wear it with chunky tights and boots until summer when you can just pair it with gladiator sandals for an easy outfit. Layer with contrasting colored cardigans for added warmth in the winter months.
