6 Perfect Outfits to Wear in 20-Degree Weather

What should you wear when it's neither completely boiling nor on the freezing side? This question is important to answer this week for a couple of reasons. Firstly, we're no longer housebound all the time. And secondly, my weather app tells me that the temperature is going to linger around the 20-degree mark all week. Granted, the app isn't always the most reliable but the thing is it can be a difficult climate to dress for, which is why it's important to work out what to wear. Do you take a jacket with you? Can you wear sandals? Is time for boots? Throw in the additional issue of it raining all week and you've got yourself a game of sweat or water. 

As you can see, this gives us plenty of style questions to answer, which is why we decided to go hunt down some of the best not-cold-but-not-hot outfit ideas. As a result, we've found seven perfect looks that will carry you through those strange summer days when you're not quite sure what's going to happen with the weather. From lightweight jackets to jeans and chunky sandals, keep scrolling for outfit ideas to last you a full week for when it's 20 degrees outside. 

1. Slip Skirt + Boots + Suede Jacket

Style Notes: The beauty about this outfit is that the thin layer under the suede jacket means you'll be able to cool off once you take it off. The slip skirt is only a thin layer but the boots provide a shield against any chilly breeze. Also great to wear with chunky sandals if it's on the warmer side. 

2. Long-Sleeve Top + Trousers + Sandals

Style Notes: Oh, how we love this outfit. It ticks off all the 2020 trends that will last for years (puff-sleeves, high-waisted beige trousers) and also includes Chanel shoes. Perfect. 

3. Trench Coat + White Shirt + Jeans

Style Notes: Just because it's a little gloomy outside, doesn't mean you have to go for more wintry colours. Go for ecru and white shades for a summery vibe. 

5. Light Leather Jacket + Wide-Leg Jeans

Style Notes: When you want to keep your body cool but covered up then a loose leather (or faux leather) shacket works wonders. Pair with wide-leg jeans and boots to keep out the rain. 

6. Dress + Bold Socks + Sneakers
