Spring transitional style
Spring is supposedly here my fellow Southern Hemispherers – which means longer days and shorter bottoms! Just as I thought I'd banish my stockings to the corner of my wardrobe, the weather turns into a windy and rainy mess. (If anyone knows what Donald Trump uses in his hair, please send me a link. I need it.) Sorry Legs - not time for you to see the sun yet.
To pepper your wardrobe with a spring vibe for the not-so-spring temperatures, you can start by moving into a lighter colour palette, but still stick to warmer textures and items like knits, hoodies and crewnecks. Here's a couple of outfit ideas for this temperamental Auckland Spring.
Culottes are great for the nippier Spring days. They're flowy, lightweight but still provide coverage. Pair them up with a light-coloured hoodie or crew to keep yourself warm. If you want to elevate the look without walking around in heels, wear them with a pair of ankle boots.
When you always feel like you're 'running out of things to wear', a knit dress is a great go-to. (For any weather really!) It looks put-together without looking like you're trying too hard. Opt for a boxier cut like what I've got on if your summer bod is still a work-in-progress like mine. (It's actually a jumper from Charlie's Laundry Menswear range - who says girls can't wear boy's clothes? If you're 5'3" like me you can even wear it as a dress!)
If it's too cold to bare your legs, you can layer up by wearing it over some boyfriend jeans for a cosier, more relaxed look. (Not gonna lie I literally reached out for my puffer jacket as soon as the photos were taken.)
