It's Springter...

A colourful print for Springter!
...It may be Spring, but gee it's cold!

It's officially Spring - the daffodils are blooming, but. feels more like winter so how do we style for the season whilst keeping out the chills?!  Chances are - much as we'd like to hibernate - you have to leave the house some time, so here are my top six tips on dressing for a snowy spring:

  • Layer up, with the light on top - Wear a spring outfit with thermals, jumpers and leggings underneath... Angela Weyers of 'My Stylist London' called it 'thermal chic'!
  • If like me, you're not quite ready to ditch the winter coat, play with 'softening' accessories like a beret rather than a beenie!
A deep floral touch!

  • Introduce florals in your deepest shades - florals are very Spring but don't have to be in light and pastel shades.

  • Lighten up! - Go for spring shades in cosy fabrics such as a woolly cardi' (remember some of us need to wear pastels with bolder colours, others can go tone-on-tone)

  • Change your make-up and/ nail varnish - I've gone from my deep plum winter lippy to a more spring-like pink lip gloss (just make sure it's in your shade!)

  • Shop! - The shops are full of new season styles (as they should be, of course)... Go shopping wrapped up, but think of and prepare for warmer days.
