With brighter days and warmer climes on the horizon, we’re ready to give our wardrobe a well-deserved spring style update! Luckily, here at George, we’re never short on fresh outfit ideas to inspire you. So, if you are wondering how you’ll tackle those tricky transitional dressing questions like, should I wear an extra jumper? Is it too warm for a jacket? Do winter boots work with this dress? Then keep on scrolling! Here you’ll find all you need to make this spring your most stylish to date, from classic spring staples and irresistible new trends, to tips on how you can create iconic spring fits with pieces you already own – yay!
How Should I Dress For Spring?
Let’s be honest, as much as we wish for sunshine and clear skies, spring weather is totally unpredictable. One minute it’s sunny and feeling super warm; the next, there’s a downpour with a definite chill!
Combat these days by putting together outfits with plenty of light layers. Your trusty skinny jeans paired with a t-shirt, a light jumper (or two), and a thin jacket will keep you warm and dry when temperatures drop. And…if the sun decides to shine (we’re keeping everything crossed!), just slip off a layer or two – easy breezy!
What Do You Wear When It’s Chilly In Spring?
The upside to chilly weather in spring? We get even more use out of our fave winter staples! And YES, it’s possible to make them feel fresh for the new season. Try teaming your go-to pair of straight leg jeans and ankle boots with pastel-coloured knitwear. You’ll feel head to toe cosy and working a vibrant sweater that simply screams spring style overhaul! Also, if you were hoping to wear dresses (we feel you!) but the cool weather has you second-guessing, it’s time to love your layers! Floral dresses will work a dream with thick tights, boots and a chic longline coat. Winter warmth with springtime style? We’re so here for it!
Trending Spring Outfits For 2022
With a brand-new year comes exciting new trends, and this spring, there are tons to choose from. Here are just a few of our faves!
Vibrant Spring Staples
If you thought previous spring collections were colourful, wait for spring 2022! Expect to see eye-catching pops of colour everywhere, from vibrant dresses and bright co-ords to neon going out tops and accessories that will style perfectly with trending straight-leg jeans. Lovers of colour, your dream spring style has arrived!
It’s good news for club cosy. Super-comfy outfits, including smock dresses, chic loungewear sets, and wide-leg jeans with oversized tees, are here to stay for spring. Try working these pieces into your your wardrobe in pastel hues for a lighter and brighter new season look.
Lighter Outwear Options
Mission: the final layer. It’s time to shake up our outerwear by making it more spring-inspired (yep, we’ll miss our duvet-like winter coats). Instead of a thick coat, try a printed shacket layered over jeans and a jumper for a fresh new take on off-duty spring styling!
Timeless Transitional Clothing Ideas For Spring
Here at George, we LOVE discovering new clothing trends, but you’ll still find us falling for those classic spring staples. Keep scrolling to see what we’re loving – always.
Refresh Your Accessories
Since the first half of spring can still feel wintry, you’ll want to keep your cold-weather accessories close by. Luckily updating these smaller items is a smart way to liven up your line-up without investing in a whole new wardrobe! Switch out your beanie for a printed bucket hat, try a lighter(and brighter!) scarf, or accessorise your fave weekend ‘fit with a pastel shoulder bag. The options are endless!
Florals, Florals, Florals
You can never go wrong with florals when it comes to classic spring prints. They look totally gorge anytime, whether you’re keeping it casual or bringing flower power to a special occasion. Load up your wardrobe with floral dresses in your favourite shades, and you’ll never be stuck for something to wear this spring.
Midi Skirts & Knitwear
We’re calling it – swapping your jeans for floaty midi skirts is a transitional game changer! Just add boots, trainers, or ballet flats and a lightweight jumper tucked at the waist to finish the look.
