Dressing For The Transition: Spring








Coat – Nicole Farhi

Shirt Dress – COS

Bag – Louis Vuitton

Shoes – Common Projects

Sunglasses – Linda Farrow x Phillip Lim (past season)

It seems like every year we’re hit with the same quandary – dressing for the seasonal transition. When do we put the big coats away? How quickly should the chunky knits be banished? At what point do scarves go into hibernation? Don’t even get me started on whacking out the sandals…  Given our constantly evolving personal styles, what should be a fairly easy transition is made difficult every year by ever changing wardrobes and taste.  Over the past couple of years I’ve developed some simple ways to get through the transition and keep sweating buckets one day and damn near catching hypothermia the next to a minimum (although the current bipolar state of British weather is catching me out more often than I’d like, I’ll still give it a shot)

Get Your Legs Out 

Yes, it’s that time again, razors at the ready!  Whipping your pins out is the ultimate ode to spring/summer, but try to keep everything else covered just in case the weather takes a turn – a sleeveless sun dress in April would be somewhat over the top and head to toe goosebumps isn’t a good look on anyone.  However, a long sleeved shirt dress with a light jacket should be enough to keep you warm while your exposed legs welcome the fact that the climate no longer leaves you wondering why no one has yet invented a scarf for your nose.

Layers Of The Thin Variety

At this time of year many of us fall into the trap of assuming the weather is going to do one thing and inevitably facing the polar opposite shortly after leaving the house. It might look warm now, but I can guarantee you 2 hours from now you’ll regret stepping out in just a t shirt. At the other end of the spectrum, there’s nothing worse than heading off in thick knitwear only to find yourself roasting from the inside out by lunchtime. Thin layers that can be thrown on or whipped off almost as quickly as mother nature changes her mood are your answer.  An open button-down, a thin knit, and for the love of God don’t lay your blanket scarf to rest just yet! All of these things will prove vital.

Jackets – Not Coats

We may not be out of the “frozen” woods yet (I had to de-ice my car this morning, not cool, April) but the big woolly coats are weeks away from going into summer storage. Jackets, be it a thin biker or a light trench, are your friends now. Enough to keep you from shivering but not enough to cause a sweat.  They’re also much easier to carry on your arm should things heat up a bit, and take up far less wardrobe space – win!

Keep Your Boots On (For Now)

Ankle boots are a spring staple, now is not the time for gladiator sandals my friends! Whether you’re baring your legs or not, the right ankle boots will bring an edge back to the ever more “feminine” summer wardrobe and save you from looking like a fool for wearing flip flops in the middle of an April shower.

So there you have it, a handful of fail safe tips for clothing yourself during Spring, whatever your style.  I think dressing for the transition is most likely a life long learning curve, but any tips picked up along the way are always best shared!

  1. Even though all the classes may be taken and completed via distance learning,
    the final exam ‘ and the workshops leading up to it ‘ must be attended in person. None
    of their friends were ever invited in to John and Mc – Cracken’s house.

    Problems of time shortage and gradually increase in drug costs are best solved
    by making a contact to any legitimate online pharmacy.
