Let's be honest, not many of us plan in advance about what to wear for the upcoming season. But a rough guide of the looks that work is handy.
Dressing for spring can be a challenge – it’s not quite warm enough to wear your summer clothes, but you don’t want to be stuck in the same old outfits you wore all winter. That’s why it’s about mixing and matching trends and breaking the rules to find something that works for you.
Here are some of our favourite outfit combinations for the Spring:
Jacket with a floral dress
Denim jackets are the ultimate way to stay warm while looking cool this season, so why not pair yours over top of a flowy floral dress? This look works best when worn together as one cohesive piece (i.e., no belt needed!) -but if you do decide to add one, make sure it’s a thin belt so as not to compete with the busy pattern of the dress.
No matter what type of jacket you choose to wear with your floral dress, make sure that it complements the
pattern and colours of the dress. For example, if your dress has bright colours or bold patterns, choose a jacket with neutral colours or subtle patterns.

Stripes are perfect for workwear and can easily transition into evening looks when paired with statement accessories like jewellery, shoes, and bags.
Whether you prefer classic stripes (think navy blue), graphic stripes (like a rainbow) or something else entirely – there’s bound to be one that you love.
Denim on Denim
Be bold and wear denim on denim this spring. This look is all about taking two different pieces of denim and putting them together in an unexpected way. We love mixing a light-wash boyfriend jeans with a dark-wash jean jacket, but feel free to get creative!
Denim on denim is a classic look.
Here are a few tips for styling this look:
- Choose different shades of blue to create visual interest.
- Add a pop of colour with a brightly coloured shoe or accessory.
- Keep the top and bottom pieces contrasting in terms of weight, texture, and fit.
- Balance the outfit by adding a feminine piece such as a floral scarf or delicate necklace.
With these tips in mind, you can create any number of stylish outfits using the denim on denim trend. Give it a try and see how you like it!

Cropped Jeans and Mules
There’s nothing like a good pair of cropped jeans to make your legs look long and lean. They’re also super comfortable, especially when paired with some cute mules (aka the best shoe ever invented). This is an easy outfit that you can wear anywhere from work to brunch with your friends—just don’t forget sunglasses!
The key to making this look work is choosing the right denim – make sure they’re a light wash and not too baggy. Mules are still one of the hottest shoe trends this season, so be sure to add a pair to your wardrobe!
Off the Shoulder Top and Jeans
Dress up your favourite pair of jeans with a cute off-the-shoulder or cold-shoulder top. This look is perfect for spring days that starts out chilly but quickly get warmer. Just be sure to have a jacket handy so you don’t freeze when the sun goes down at night! And if it starts raining on your way home from work – well… just pull that hoodie overtop before heading outside again ;)

T-shirt with Trousers
Dress down by pairing your Trousers with a cute Tee for an easy spring outfit that works at the office or on weekends.
A simple T-shirt with trousers looks great on everyone, whether you’re tall or petite! Dress it up with some heels for a night out, or keep it casual in flats for running errands or weekend brunch.
T-shirt: Choose a fitted tee in a solid colour for a flattering look.
Dress Trousers: Dress trousers are ideal for this outfit because they are comfortable yet still look professional. If you don’t have any dress trousers, another option is to wear khaki pants or chinos.

T-shirt with a Blazer
Dress up your favourite T-shirt with a Blazer and heels for an easy spring outfit. Key to this look is finding the right blazer. Go for a relaxed fit that’s not too tight or too loose. You also want to choose a colour or pattern that will complement your T-shirt.
If you have a plain white T-shirt, try pairing it with a navy blue blazer for a classic look. For something more fun, try an animal print blazer with leopard print pumps!
The romantic dress
A romantic dress is perfect for spring weddings, easter brunch, and other special occasions.
There are so many different styles of romantic dresses to choose from. We love lace dresses, floral prints, and ethereal fabrics like chiffon and tulle.
No matter what your style is, there’s a romantic dress out there that’s perfect for you!
Dress up your favourite little black dress with accessories or keep things simple by pairing them back to basics.
The key is finding that perfect balance between feminine sophistication and effortless chicness ;)
