Isn’t early spring the most awkward time for getting dressed!? Here at Luxe Models, London, we think so. Unpredictable weather is a fashionista’s worst nightmare. Sometimes it seems like there are four seasons in one day.
Just getting dressed in the morning can quickly become a minefield trying to find an outfit that won’t leave you feeling really hot or really cold… or looking – like – so last season. And frustratingly every retail shop window is full of mannequins showing the latest summer fashions, urging us to bare our limbs to the elements.
So, what do we wear in early spring when one day the sun is beaming but the next we are battling through flurries of snow? Don’t worry, I have all of the dos and don’ts you need.
DO: Skinny jeans are on my list of must have clothes. The British weather is so schizophrenic that they just seem like the most reasonable item of clothing to get me through the day come rain or shine.
DO: Layer up. When the sun pops out it’s a great opportunity to try out unusual combinations of shirts, sweaters, jeans. This leaves you free to peel them off or add back on throughout the day without the risk of freezing… or sweating!
DON’T: Expose ankles and toes. Is it really worth risking frostbite? Think carefully before donning those flip flops or open toed shoes. Likewise with Capri jeans; there is a whole summer ahead, just be patient.
DO: Slip on some sunglasses. Sunglass appropriateness doesn’t pertain to the weather—if it’s sunny, slap them on! They are a chic way to top off any look.
DON’T: Stash away your hats and mitts. These are great for keeping you warm when dashing between indoor places. Keep them handy in a cool tote.
DON’T: Get a spray tan. There is nothing worse than being the only tangerine coloured person in a sea of pale, winter worn faces.
DO: Wear bronzer. This is a great back up plan for all of the spray tan addicts out there.
DO: Keep an umbrella handy. Essential for keeping frizzy hair at bay.
So now, with a few tidbits of advice from Luxe Models UK, you are prepared for facing the great outdoors fashionista style; bring on the summer!
