As it turns out, not only do ‘April showers bring May flowers’ but luckily, some springtime style inspo too! At George, we’re all about putting a positive spin on things, so we say there’s no need to let grey clouds put a dampener on your day – or your outfit choice for that matter.
Whether you’re heading for brunch, a casual afternoon stroll, or a fancy evening do, it’s always a good idea to be prepared for the chance of rain – even if, like us, you’ve checked the weather forecast twice!
What To Wear When It’s Humid but Rainy?
Getting the right fit that’ll keep you cool and protect you from unexpected showers can be a little tricky. In typical George style, we’ve got a few ideas up our very stylish sleeve!
Finding the right pair of shoes is a must for any outfit combo, and we’ll be skipping chunky styles and reaching for trainers or brogues that’ll keep busy feet protected, without making our toes too toasty.
When it comes to coats, you might be tempted by your trusty winter puffer (we’ve lived in ours), but it’s probably going to be a little stuffy for this time of year. To keep your outfit dry – minus the bulk, reach for a raincoat or lightweight jacket.
The Timeless Trench Coat
The trench coat is ever-so-chic and a wardrobe staple that will serve you from season to season. The lightweight jacket is a must-have for autumn and spring weather and a true investment for all-year-round style.
During springtime, sport a trench coat in signature stone and bag a longer style that falls below the knee. You can wear the iconic jacket over any outfit, from casual day dresses to the classic jeans and nice top combo.
When it comes to footwear, go for a comfy style, whether you prefer to rock some ankle boots or a pair of flats.
If you prefer darker colours, a black trench coat is equally versatile and great for casual day plans or evening get-togethers.
Spring is THE season to embrace ditsy styles, and playful prints and casual dresses are your new best friend.
It’s always a good idea to avoid floor-length fits (we apologise to your adorable maxi dresses in advance) to avoid hemlines getting ruined by muddy puddles!
Mini dresses or knee-length dresses are dreamy cuts, and we absolutely LOVE floral dresses for spring – obviously! There’s a flowery frock for everyone in our FABULOUS collection, from bright greens to mellow yellows.
To complete your look and prep you for changeable weather, pop on a bucket hat, rain coat and a pair of trainers. The 90s inspired hats are all the rage this season, and they’ll double-up for festival season too!
Reach For Rain Boots
Ok, we get it. You might not feel overly eager to put on a pair of wellies or rain boots with your fave printed dress, but we’ve gotta admit they’re pretty handy.
With so many vibrant hues and trending styles to pick from, a trusty pair of boots will work a dream with TONS of your springtime fits.
For a sole you can count on year-round, go for wear-again black or navy styles. Love a quirky vibe? We’ve got patterned picks with your name on ‘em – ideal for whipping out come festival season!
Handy hack: depending on your plans, why not travel in rain boots and swap into another pair of shoes on arrival – we’re all about making life easier!
Jeans are pretty much the backbone of every wardrobe, and rightly so! You can wear them throughout the year, and they are never out of style.
During the spring, classic blue jeans are a go-to choice and depending on the fit, can completely switch up your look.
From skinny jeans, to mom jeans and boyfriends, channel a different vibe whatever denim you’re rocking. Team them with a pair of ankle boots to bring your outfit together and protect your feet from unexpected drizzle. The weather dampening your day? Not on our watch!
Accessories never go amiss, so pop on a scarf, grab your umbrella and set off for your day – it’s all in the details!
Cosy knitwear isn’t just for winter, and during spring showers and nippier weather, knitted garms will keep you snug. We’re buzzin’ for some snuggly newness!
Layering a cardigan over a floral dress is a fab way to add some texture and cuddle points to your look. Fancy a pop of colour? Our bright styles are for you. A longline cardigan will complete your outfit and make it feel dressier for evening plans.
We love a good beanie hat, and chic shades like nude pinks will bring new season energy to your spring accessories. If you’re worried about chilly hands, be sure to pack a pair of knitted gloves too!
