Winter is drawing to an end, you're getting excited about the spring collections and what trends to incorporate into your wardrobe. However, it is still bitterly cold outside and you dont want to stick out like a sore thumb in the rain - its just not practical. I am going to show you the three peices you need in your wardrobe this pre- spring season, and what to wear them with.
What's that, a hat?
The first, is a great hat. Weather a fedora, a trilby or a turban - a hat is practical, as it will protect your head from the spring showers but also stylish in the right shapes and colours. Here are a few of my PICKS:
A trench coat or a parka
A trench coat is a classic for anyone wanting to be warm and effortlessly stylish at any time of the year. If you don't already own one, pick one up in either a classic beige or khaki green.
You could be brave and wear a leather trench a la Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Blake Lively, or put your own take on the trend by looking for one with a sheen or a lacquer finish for a really edgy look.
The second coat option is a parka, in either a khaki green or beige. And I'll tell you why, because this piece is great for layering. Layer it over shirts and lightweight jackets and add a belt, keep it open so you can see the layers of your outfit. If you're missing your faux fur gilet (or you want to wear one) don't. Get a sleevless model and wear it over a more demure, spring colour of midi skirt. Save the gilet for when it is not raining.
Mid season, mid length
My third choice is that indeed, a Midi. Weather you choose to wear it shopping or on a date, make sure it is in a season appropriate colour. Think pastel pleats and strong patterns, im really liking the idea of a sugar colour skirt with tye dye accents. Just make sure if it's chiffon, protect it from the rain and when it gets warmer, DIY your skirts into drop hem skirts and wear them with boots all through the spring.
