Transitioning into Spring

I know it's only February but there are signs that Spring is around the corner. I have spotted daffodils in bloom and the weather has turned this week from freezing cold to much milder. 

There are clothes in our wardrobes that we can definitely wear when the weather starts to change and here are a few tips: 

If you have a long, fairly chunky cardigan, you can wear it instead of a coat - over jeans, trousers or a dress.  This one is from Boden:



The two cardigans below (also from Boden) are blazer-like in their shape and would also make good stand-alone items without wearing a coat over the top if the weather permits. You could also wear them with a skirt as well as trousers or a dress:



As spring gets nearer and the days get lighter, we can start to wear lighter colours too. So instead of wearing a dark tee shirt under the pink cardigan above, a white or pastel colour would look more spring-like.

You can still continue to wear boots into March and April but your wintery boots with fur can be stored away until next year as can heavy winter coats.

A trench coat is a useful coat for transitioning into spring - you can wear warmer clothes under it if the weather turns chilly and, of course, for the rain! This trench coat is from Hobbs:




I hope these few tips are helpful. Please let me know how you transition your wardrobe into spring.
