- The British spring is an incredibly strange season. It’s sunny, it snows, it’s windy, it rains, it’s dry, it’s humid. One day it feels bitterly cold, the next you’re sweltering on public transport and longing for a cool breeze. I’ve got so many ideas for summer styles but the season is just not ready for them yet, so here is today’s winter outfit on a spring day. I bought this jumper on a whim just before Christmas last year. I owned precisely one Christmas style jumper before this. It’s very tasteful, with a grey and white sequinned reindeer design. One Christmas jumper is not enough though, so when I saw this one in the sales in H&M for £10 it was a no brainer. The Fair Isle design is a timeless (albeit wintery) classic, and the black and blue colours go with pretty much everything.
We’re in that time of transitional weather, where spring is desperately trying to show its wonderful face, but winter is stubbornly refusing to leave. The key to dressing during these changing seasons is layering. As someone who is a fan of eclectic style over minimalism, I love to mix up different pieces with a mish-mash of textures and styles. I started out with the polka dot top and striped tube skirt for this look. Once I realised I’d picked out tights with a subtle diagonal check too, I decided to go all out and mix up my patterns even more.
A sunny start to the week got me a bit over excited about wearing less wintery clothes. I pulled this denim mini skirt and white shirt out of the wardrobe with a thin jumper for a kind of preppy look to start the week. The trouble is, it’s still really cold so I’ve added knee high boots, tights and a duffle coat for warmth.
