Switch it up
Can you feel the change in the weather? Over the weekend we indulged in ice cream and even abandoned our coats halfway through our walk in the sunshine.
Nature is blooming and with Boris setting out a roadmap out of lockdown, I literally have a spring in my step. As much as I’m going to miss my winter coats (some of which have not been worn as we couldn’t go anywhere) I am ready for leather bikers, blazers, light coats and chunky cardigans.
I admit British weather can be unpredictable. One day it’s sunny and balmy, and the next it’s hail and rain so dressing can become almost confusing. This is when layering comes into its own. Throw a roll neck underneath any form of outerwear and you have instantly achieved the right level of cosy with not a sweat patch inside.
Knitted vests make for a great investment and look preppy chic over shirts paired with an undone cashmere coat. Knitted dresses also have a part to play but now you can forgo winter tights and throw on a leather biker.
Light oversized coats are great during these warmer months as you can chuck them over a blazer on the days when the temperature drops or style them over a T-shirt for the undone Parisian vibe.
Transitional dressing can be frustrating at times but use it as an opportunity to play around with layers and texture without having to worry about the heaviness of a cold-weather wardrobe.
Here are some of my favourite jackets and cardigans that I can’t wait to slip into.
