As someone who avoids wearing trousers at all costs, I used to find spring relatively difficult to style myself for (particularly the beginnings of the season when it's still cold out and the weather can change drastically without warning). Dresses form 90% of my wardrobe, and over the years, I've worked out a few tricks for making them feel spring-like while remaining blissfully toasty. And it seems influencers too have discovered the knack for wearing frocks without freezing.
From simple layering tricks to the boots I always wear with midis and maxis, keep scrolling for six genius ways to style dresses in spring.
It's the hack fashion girls use throughout the colder months. Layering a roll-neck (preferably a thermal one) under a short-sleeved dress will keep the chill at bay and will give even the fanciest attire an off-duty downplay.
As we've already noted, springtime weather can change go from blue skies to torrential rain in seconds, so layers are certainly your friend when it comes to this transeasonal period. Match the colour of your outerwear and accessories to that of your dress to create a tonally appealing ensemble.
While I've been faithfully donning my black opaques for the last few months, spring presents the perfect opportunity to invest in some playful hosiery. Be it printed or bright coloured, a pair of tights are essential when wearing minidresses at this time of year.
I love black footwear, I really do, but even I find it can look too harsh against some dresses. So until sandal season arrives, I'll swap out my black boots in favour of white or ecru tones for a fresher, springtime take.
