Spring Wardrobe Staples

Spring is here and it’s time to put away the knitwear. Get out the strappy dresses & put the big coat to the back of the wardrobe…I wish.

Manchester tends to get about ten sunny days at best, even then I’d still suggest packing your brolly! But for those of you lucky enough to have sunshine & warmer weather this time of year, here are a few of my favourite wardrobe staples to deal with the mixed weather of spring!

I’ve included links to similar products to make for some easy online shopping! Enjoy x



Layering is the friend of spring weather! My favourite way to give you a bit of warmth is layering a t-shirt under or over a strappy dress. I personally like to layer it over and knot it at the waist. This pulls in your waist & gives you a bit more shaping.

Like most people I love my denim dungarees but, last year, I also grabbed myself a wide legged cotton pair from Mango last year & I have loved them ever since.

These are so comfy & are much lighter. It’s the best way to wear this trend throughout the seasons!

Mom jeans


This is a year round trend, but is there anything more spring like, than pale pair of mom jeans & a striped tee?

It’s the perfect outfit for brunch or just relaxing at a family BBQ.

Underwear as outerwear


Throughout summer, you will likely find me in some kind of white t-shirt. It’s my go-to.

One way to style this differently is layer it over some obvious underwear. Visible underwear was tricky for me to wear at first, I felt a bit ‘on show’. Once you do it once, I promise you will love it!

Lace Bralets

Shirt dresses


A great shirt dress is a must for anyone through spring and summer! They can be layered over jeans or leggings, if you’re not a dress lover and they suit every shape and size.

This was an absolute bargain from George at Asda & wears well with knee high boots in autumn!

Camouflage Jacket


This is one of my favourite wardrobe staples. I bought this one from Topshop back in 2013 & they haven’t gone out of style yet! It’s perfect for layering over dresses and jeans.

The pattern and colours clash yet match almost everything. You will definitely get your money worth!

Camo Jackets

Striped culottes


Not only are culottes comfy & light, they seem to be sticking around.

Becoming popular a couple of years ago, they have become staple & are perfect for spring. Hope this post helps you get ready spring & give you some ideas!

  1. The weather in The Netherlands is just the same. There’s actually some snow in my hometown at the moment so it’s actually hard to believe that Spring is just around the corner 🙂 I just love dungarees! Haven’t found the perfect one for me though.
