Transitional Winter to Spring Wardrobe

The sun has been teasing us for a few weeks now and the evenings are getting lighter which can only mean one thing - spring is around the corner! As much as I love a cosy winter evening in bed, watching old episodes of Gossip Girl and drinking tea I'm so ready for milder weather and the spring fashion that comes along with it.

It's sometimes hard to choose outfits for the 'winter to spring' transitional period, when it's no longer freezing cold but not quite warm enough for your summer wardrobe to make an appearance. So, I've picked out a few key pieces from my ASOS wish list that I think will be perfect for the coming weeks.

A plain white shirt is a must-have staple item for any woman. I think they're perfect for this time of year because they're so easy to layer and can be dressed up or down. You could pair it under a jumper with your Stan Smiths for a casual office look or unbutton to show off a lacy bra and pair with some killer heels for a perfect evening vibe.

Satin was all over the SS16 catwalk this season so it's set to stick around and this navy number is the happy medium between a heavy coat and a light jacket, long enough for winter but light enough for spring. Satin instantly adds a hint of glam to a dull outfit which means you could just chuck this over a boring top and plain jeans but look like you've still made an effort. I also love how the jacket is styled above, with a similar length dress and bare legs as I think it would really elongate a short body (like mine).

T-Shirt Dress in Stripe £22

Stripes are failsafe all year round but t-shirt dresses are great for this time of year because you can pair them with tights and boots on a chilly day or brave a bare leg when it starts to get a little bit warmer. 

Brady Boyfriend Jeans in Cypress Midwash with Rips £35

I still don't own a pair of boyfriend jeans but these are at the top of my wish list. I love the distressed denim look for spring and these are just ripped enough to wear on colder days as they don't expose half of your leg like some of the extreme styles. I like the effortless styling with a simple white shirt and black heels as it makes a casual pair of jeans look classy. 

It's time to swap the furry bobble hats for something more stylish (sad face as I love bobble hats). This fedora is a nice way to add interest to a really plain outfit and also amazing for bad hair days = win, win.

Nike Plum Fog Air Pegasus '83 Trainers £70

I don't know if it's just me that feels like pastel trainers are a no-no during winter. You kind of stick out like a sore thumb for the wrong reasons wearing pink or purple trainers in the dreary rain so I like to stick to black or white. However, now the sunshine is making a reappearance I can't wait to indulge in a new pair of nikes and this colour is perfect in so many ways (probably because I can't help but love pink). They're the perfect way to add a little bit of femininity to a monochrome outfit and would definitely look cool with the striped t-shirt dress above. 

Quay Australia sunglasses are my ultimate favourite affordable sunglasses brand so I was super happy when ASOS started stocking a larger variety of styles. Of course I'd own 50 pairs of Mui Mui's if my bank would allow it but these are a great alternative to designer frames. My best tip for the almost-spring season is, always carry a pair of killer sunglasses in your handbag and don them whenever you see a hint of sun for instant sass.

I hope you found some spring inspiration throughout this post, writing it has certainly made me excited to start purchasing some seasonal fashion pieces.
