Okay, we're officially confused about the weather. One second it's apocalyptic downpours and the next it's balmy 18-degree sunshine. Seriously, England—make up your mind. But, of course, this is the nature of spring, and every year we manage to power through the meteorological mayhem and make it to the other side where summer awaits. It'll happen—we promise.
So when it comes to deciding what to wear this March, we're taking a tentative—but no less stylish—approach and offering up five simple outfits that can easily be layered up or dressed down according to your needs. For example, fashion blogger Minnie perfectly adapts a spring-ready gingham dress (expect to see more of these in the coming months) for unexpected windchill with a black roll-neck and lace-up boots. For a smarter spin, we're looking to Brittany Bathgate, who layers up a pleated midi (another spring staple) with a wool workwear jacket.
The secret to their success? All these outfits feature pieces that can be brought out the moment summer hits (now that's what we call more bang for your buck). Scroll down to see our full edit of March-ready outfits.
Style Notes: It might not be quite as practical as the other looks, but we couldn't leave out Linda Tol's dreamy blouse in this roundup. We're so into the way she has styled it with casual ripped denim and pointed boots.
