You Don't Need to Wait for the Weather to Change to Wear These 16 Spring Outfits

Spring 2020's fashion trends have been beckoning us since September when the fashion week runways were flooded with statement suits, polka dots and streamlined understated separates. So while the year has only just begun, it feels about right to start thinking about spring and which trends you'd like to try and which new pieces you'd like to buy into for the months ahead. While we know it's still cold, though, we're determined to find a way to start wearing spring looks now—even if that means just adding a few bright colours to our outfits here and there. 

Yes, 2020 is still a strong year for dresses, but suits and skirts have also risen their way to the top of our shopping list. So if you're ready to embrace next season, keep scrolling for the street style guide to what to wear this spring, plus the shopping list you'll need to achieve each look.

Style Notes: The typical thigh-grazing frocks of summer's past have been replaced by voluminous, smock-like styles, as seen on Alexis Foreman. Just add flats and a minimalist tote.

Style Notes: Layering is key when it comes to seasonal dressing, and Ellie from Slip Into Style shows us how it's done. Layer a puff-sleeve blouse under your favourite sleeveless dress for a look that is not only modern but will also keep you warm. 

Knitted Dress and Jacket
