The beginning of spring brings blossom, bright mornings and…the virtually impossible challenge of dressing for changeable weather. No longer freezing but not yet balmy, you no longer want to be bogged down by multiple layers but can’t get away with wearing just a sundress. How to solve this sartorial qualm? Hone in on key pieces that lend themselves to a variety of outfits—whether layered under a jacket or paired with sandals. Just in time for the shift in weather, British mega-retailer Marks & Spencer is launching their e-commerce in the U.S., offering a slew of trendy staples perfect for on-point transitional dressing. Ahead, four distinct ensembles comprised of versatile pieces you need in your wardrobe right now.
Styling tip: Lighten up a knee-length pencil skirt with sporty white trainers and a relaxed striped top.
Styling tip: Team paperbag trousers—a must-have this spring—with a graphic shirt and pointed-toe kitten heels for work.
Styling tip: Opt for a curve-hugging yet sophisticated mock-neck midi with leather ankle boots for a night out. Combat the evening chill by draping an oversize coat over your shoulders.
Styling tip: As the weather gets warmer, play with fluid silhouettes and fabrics by combining a printed wide-leg pant with a feminine off-the-shoulder top. Finish with a pair of effortless embellished slides.
