So before you rush out and revamp your entire wardrobe for summer, here are seven styling hacks you can use right now adapt pieces you probably already own.

Cotton shirt dress + sweatshirt

If you haven’t yet got wind of the Nineties logo sweatshirt mega-movement, now is the time to embrace it. Throw one over a linen shirt-dress and add trainers or boots.

Sandals + socks + bare legs

It may be your Grandad’s footwear of choice but that doesn’t mean you can’t rock it like a badass too. Make your sandals chunky, socks black and keep legs bare and lightly bronzed. 

Summer dress + boots

It may be too early for a prairie sun dress, but add a pair of heavy-duty stomping boots and you’ve got yourself a refreshingly breezy springtime look.

Swap your poloneck for a frilly blouse

Remember that poloneck-layering trick that we keep banging on about? Well, now you can apply exactly the same rule for spring. Just swap the poloneck for a frilly blouse or cardigan.

Show some shoulder

If you already own a one-shouldered jumper, now is it's time to shine. Failing that, choose a baggy jumper with a wide boat or V neck, pull it off one shoulder and push up the sleeves. Easy peasy.

Shirt-dress layered over trousers

Nothing says spring more that a striped cotton shirt-dress. Make yours work in-between seasons by wearing it long and partially un-buttoned over a pair of leather trousers. 

Long sleeves, long hem

Still can’t wait to get into those boho paisley prints? Choose a floaty maxi dress with long sleeves and a pussy-bow neck to avoid looking like you’ve over-eagerly catapulted yourself into August.
