Transitional Style

After a cold April, we are all looking forward to the weather changing and getting warmer so we can get our colourful summer wardrobe out. But even though the summer is just around the corner, we do still have to brave the colder air, especially for our evening outfits. We have put together some outfit ideas for battling the changing temperatures in style. 

The key for transitional style is always light layering. Light layers are the easiest way to ensure you can keep cool in the sun during the day, but then layer up to fight the cold in the evening. From lightweight blazers to leather jackets, you can't go wrong with a layered look. Try styling a full tailored look for your day to night outfits with a t-shirt underneath. Or go for a more casual look with some wide leg trousers, a blouse and a leather jacket.


We are all itching to get out our summer clothes and wear those colourful dresses that have been waiting for us in our wardrobes all winter long. The good news is that even with the cold spring weather, you can start wearing your favourite dresses with the help of a few layers. Style a dress with some tights, a chunky knit and your favourite ankle boots or layer a thing knit under a light jacket with the dress to keep warm. It’s easy, keeps you warm and looks great.


Even when the weather seems to be sunny, it’s always good to prepare for those rain showers that sometimes catch us by surprise. When planning your days out or evenings at the pub gardens, a trendy raincoat might be your saviour to keep your outfit dry in case of an impromptu rain shower. Style your favourite jeans with a comfy lightweight knit and trainers, and layer on a rain jacket to add a bit of colour to the neutral outfit.


The button-down shirts are a great layering style for your spring outfits. A linen blend top will keep you cool even if the sun gets hot during the day, but it's also a great layering piece with a collar peeking out of a jumper. Style a midi skirt, joggers or high waisted wide leg trousers with a button-down shirt and drape the knit over your shoulders during the day.
