7 Outfit Formulas Fashion Girls Always Wear in April

There's no point in denying that the weather isn't quite as warm as we'd like it to be right now. So what do you wear when spring isn't quite making an appearance and you can't be doing with the rain anymore? Take outfit inspiration from some of our favourite influencers, of course.

After trawling through their Instagram accounts, we managed to come up with seven key looks that are ideal for any sort of changeable weather April might throw at us. From cool layered outfits to co-ords that are right for the office (and won't have you freezing), there are plenty of ideas you'll want to copy immediately. Keep scrolling for everything you need to know.

1. Light Layering
What to Wear in April: Brittany Bathgate in layers



Style Notes: First up, April is the month to get acquainted with some clever layering. Think of lighter pieces that will keep you warm on chillier spring days. This look is exactly what we mean: A polished shirtdress worn with trousers and chic flats.

2. The Slouchy Suit

Style Notes: Still not ready to give up your cosy clothes post-winter? Right now there is a load of slouchy suits around (hi, Zara) that are still smart enough for the office. Just pair with ankle boots or loafers.

3.Oversized Blazer + Slip Skirt
What to Wear in April: Ada Oguntodu in a slip skirt and oversized blazer



Style Notes: Slip skirts were all the rage during party season, but that doesn't mean you need to stash them away. Now, they look the springtime part paired with an oversized blazer and a slogan tee. 

4. Double Denim
What to Wear in April: Monikh Dale in double denim



Style Notes: The denim jacket is an item that rarely goes out of fashion. It's an ideal spring jacket too, as it gives you a bit of warmth without making you feel boiling if the sun finally decides to make an appearance. Take a leaf out of Monikh's book and wear it with your favourite jeans and a straw tote. 

5. Jumpsuit + Matching Accessories
