Us Brits famously love to talk about the weather, but how can you not when it seems to change every hour? If you’re struggling to get dressed this month when it’s summer one minute and winter the next, thankfully we’ve spied plenty of brunch-ready spring outfits on our favourite fashion influencers that are perfect for this weekend.
Chances are that you can re-create some of these for yourself using pieces you already own. However, you can also shop the entire looks we’ve provided. We have a feeling you’re going to love fresh new way to style up your comfy knitted dress, as well as the flawless jeans and blazer combination that looks so elevated.
Keep scrolling to see our favourite off-duty spring outfits.
Style Notes: We know the weather can be a little temperamental in spring, so it’s always good to have layers at hand. A statement blouse looks so pretty over a pale yellow knit and is perfect for those unexpected cold evenings.
Sweatshirts with cashmere? How fabulous!
The rounded collar softens the general look of this shirt.
Comfy drawstring trousers? Yes please!
Style Notes: We love how Ada manages to wear her winter tailoring in a way that feels fresh for spring. Wide-leg trousers and a black crop top are all a check blazer needs to feel warm weather–ready.
This blazer looks so expensive.
Cropped tees are my secret weapon, as they create almost no bulk when tucked into jeans.
A trouser you can dress up or down with ease.
Style Notes: Denim is the cornerstone of many a high-functioning spring wardrobe, but we love how Oumaya switches her looks up with a denim skirt.
This cute cardigan also comes in navy.
I can think of so many ways to style this denim midi.
The best pair of mules on the high-street, IMO.
Style Notes: Sasha Mei is wearing the easiest throw-on spring outfit—a floral midi dress, which works with just about every shoe style going. Right now, pair yours with chunky boots.
Sasha’s exact frock—isn’t she a beaut?
A pre-layered necklace will save you any fuss.
Bottega Veneta’s best-selling Lug boots come in so many colours now, but these are my favourite for spring.
Style Notes: Lucy Williams looks ready for the sun in her white jeans and denim jacket, which she makes more weather-appropriate with her cowboy boots.
This jacket is already perfectly oversized.
Why not consider these straight-leg jeans while you’re at it.
A welcome change from black for spring.
Style Notes: We love how Brittany Bathgate has paired her pleated Arket midi skirt with a khaki overshirt and matching green socks.
A layering piece you’ll get so much wear out of.
I bought a pleated skirt just like this way back in 2014 that I still wear to this day.
Practical for spring showers.
Style Notes: Adding a very spring colour instantly lifts your outfit, such as how Karina has opted for a bright yellow dress, smartly pairing it with on-trend platform heels. We suggest bookmarking this look for any upcoming weddings.
I love the sheer overlay on this yellow dress.
Crescent moons are my jewellery weakness.
Platforms are a big deal for spring/summer, and Zara has plenty to choose from if you’re on a budget.
Style Notes: When you start seeing mini skirts being worn sans tights, you know spring is on its way. Until sandal weather commences, pair yours with some knee-high boots to afford you some protection from the elements.
A jumper you’ll find any excuse to wear.
Preppy miniskirts are going to be huge this season.
I’ve been looking for a pair of platform boots—now, I’ve called off the search.
Style Notes: We love making the most of coat weather, particularly when there are chic styles like this on offer. Give a printed coat a cool spin by wearing it with slouchy trousers and trainers, just like Anna.
This coat is trending hard on social media right now.
M&S have some of the best trousers this spring.
It’s almost time to trade in your boots for your white kicks.
Style Notes: We’ve never met a jeans-and-blazer outfit we didn’t like, and this one is up there as one of our favourites. Perhaps it’s the soft powdery tone of the blazer, but this sage and vintage blue pairing feels so elevated.
A sleek way to start easing yourself into wearing linen ahead of summer.
Every editor on our team raves about these jeans.
Dream arm candy alert.
Style Notes: Aside from joggers, knitted dresses are the comfiest thing we’ve worn over the past to years. Give any styles hanging in your wardrobe an update by styling them with a bright handbag in a trending colour, such as cobalt blue or grass green.
Brown is a colour I’ve overlooked for too long—this dress is convincing me otherwise.
This particular shade of blue is going to keep cropping up this season.
