Hooray! Spring is around the corner. Ok, it isn’t exactly around the corner, but it’s somewhere on the horizon. Behind Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day and a lot of other days that don’t have specific names. But don’t worry – it’s definitely there, inching towards us, coming to thaw us all out. Remember what it’s like to go outside and be able to feel your fingers? Spring does.
Meanwhile the shops have already started to put out their pastels, florals and floaty bits and we’ve decided we’re bored of waiting for spring to make the first move… so instead, we’re going to meet it in the middle.
Here are our seven fave buys for spring – and with a little bit of creativity, you can totally get away with wearing them now.
The chic one
Yes, it’s pink and yes, it’s made of tulle, but pop a black high necked polo, like this one from H&M underneath it, pair it with some chunky boots and voila!
The linen one
Most people think of linen as a summer fabric. Those people are – respectfully – wrong. Linen is soft and lovely and surprisingly warm. Slip on one of Uniqlo’s HEATTECH thermal tops underneath and some black fleece tights (Primark do some great ones) and you’re good to go.
The silky one
This silky number from Pull and Bear will look just as good with tights as it will with bare legs come April. Ok, June.
The suede one
You can pair this skirt with long sleeves in the winter and strappy tops in the spring. Sorted.
The pastel one
If you’re craving sugary shades, consider your pastel box ticked. Throw on this long sleeved polo from H&M, some nude tights and some brown boots with this beautiful Topshop dress and BAM! Pastels made winter-friendly.
The sparkly one
Want to bring a bit of light to these dark January days? This top from Brandy Melville might be just what you’re after. You can wear a long sleeve back polo underneath it in the winter and a vest in the summer.
The yellow one
If you want to blend in among the daffodils, New Look has your back with this yellow slip dress. Plus, you can throw a chunky knit over the top, like this one from GAP, and wear it as skirt until the weather warms up.
Now all we need is for the temperature to spring into the double digits.
