The meteorologists may have predicted snow, but we're fast-forwarding to spring regardless because that's the fashion temperament—future-thinking. That doesn't mean you should slink into crop tops and switch to open-toe shoes just yet. Instead, we've looked to clever dresses that are long-sleeved or can easily be worn with a fine knit layer and topped off with a cosy winter coat for when the thermostat drops. By the time the daffodils have come through, you can drop a layer and simply wear the dress with a cropped biker jacket. Perfecto!
