The depths of winter make the best time to plan your outfits for the next season. Yes, really.
By Scarlett Stevens
Being stuck in the seemingly eternal cycle of dressing for warmth on a dark morning often feels like a time of little inspiration. However, the time we most long for sunshine can be the best kick into action when it comes to planning your spring capsule wardrobe.
Planning ahead for the next season doesn’t mean having to buy new, either. Sustainability and the idea of investing in long-lasting pieces are very much still at the forefront this year. Odds are, you have most of these items already in your wardrobe, and they just need a little organisation to get you prepped for spring.
COS is a staple favourite of mine when it comes to mapping out my looks for the forthcoming months. The Scandi brand always keeps it simple, tailored and well put-together, and their site is essentially a ready-made mood board.
Here are a few of my recommendations for what to add to your spring mix.
Tapered High Rise Jeans
In my opinion, you can’t go far wrong with a good pair of cropped jeans for spring, and this pair is one of my favourites. Spring is a great time to brighten up your outfits, and since white jeans or trousers go with almost anything, you’ll be getting maximum wear out of them. These jeans are a straight-leg, wide fit, so they maintain a casual and relaxed look.
Oversized-Fit Blazer / Pleated Wide-Leg Trousers
£135 / £99
Didn’t you hear? Suits aren’t just for the oﬃce. This two-piece set would look just as good paired with your favourite trainers as it would on the morning commute.
Wool Bomber Jacket
Fine, it technically isn’t a cardigan, but this caramel Merino bomber is the epitome of an all-day outer layer. Light, simple and comfortable, this is the exact type of thing you want to throw over your tees and polos for a day in the unpredictable British spring weather. Pair this with your favourite loafers and basically, you’ve won.
