With the Easter Bank Holiday weather forecasted for more rain and possibly snow, we have decided to focus on more motivating issues; dressing for spring! We understand that although the coming of spring brings many excitements, it also brings many costs. To help you out we have put together a few outfit options that consist of winter pieces you most likely already own. In the spirit of fresh starts, we say that the more creative you become with your clothes; the better!
Outfit #1: Over the knee boots stripped back
Over the knee boots are easily considered the staple footwear option for winter. But, sadly there comes a time when we need to put them back under the bed. With the weather starting to get warmer, the idea of layering these beauties over jeans doesn’t seem to be the most comfortable option. We say, put aside the jeans and try wearing your boots with an oversized shirt or shirt dress for an all around cool vibe.

Outfit #2: A new way of wearing your scarf
The easiest way to accessorise in winter can also be the easiest way in spring as well. Adding a scarf as you walk out the door always pulls an outfit together, whether it gives a much-needed pop of colour or strictly for warmth; we are dreading putting away our scarfs. We say, expand your styling creatively and move the scarf upwards: to the top of your head. Experiment with tying it around your ponytail, braiding it into your braids, or simply tying it as a bow on the side.
Outfit #3: Mixed seasons from top-to-tie
Living in England typically means that your knitwear drawer is the heaviest. We say, try and utilise them as long as possible. Experiment with pairing your favourite knitwear with a pair of shorts instead of jeans for a different approach to seasonal dressing. Combing textures and different fabrics can be the best way to transition seasons. To give this leg an extra styling one-up, experiment with textured tights under simple fabric shorts.

Outfit #4: Double your denim
Jeans. The omnipresent seasonal clothing choice. We all know how easy they are to style up or down. We say, combine your favourite pair of jeans with any other denim accessory. We are loving the double denim look, and we say the more the better. Drag out that old denim shirt and try tucking it in to a similar shade pair of jeans for maximum effect.
