Spring 2020's fashion trends have been beckoning us since last September when the fashion week runways were flooded with statement suits, polka dots and streamlined understated separates. As we approach Easter weekend, it now certainly feels like spring, with the arrival of blue skies. While there might not be much motivation to dress up since you'll likely be at home, the spring looks below look just as good inside as they do outside.
We're determined to find a way to start wearing more summery looks now—even if that means just adding a few bright colours to our outfits here and there. This year is still all about easy-to-wear dresses, but co-ords and skirts have also risen their way to the top of our shopping list.
So if you're looking for some new styling ideas, keep scrolling for our guide for what to wear this spring, plus a shopping list to achieve each look. Since most of these outfits revolve around classic everyday staples, you'll be able to re-create many of these spring outfits without spending anything.
Style Notes: There are few things as classic as a Breton stripe top. Here, Bubbly Aquarius pairs the staple with linen trousers for a casual springtime look.
Collection Weekend by John Lewis Long Sleeve Breton Stripe T-Shirt (£14)
Toast Garment Dyed Linen Trousers (£66)
Style Notes: A cardigan is a spring staple in anyone's book. Take note from Ada Oguntodu this season and pair yours with a denim midi over the weekend or comfy trousers for casual days at home.
& Other Stories Cropped Textured Cotton Cardigan (£65)
Topshop Side Split Denim Midi Skirt (£35)
Style Notes: Stay home in style with a matching co-ord. Influencers all around the world are opting for neutral tones, just like TyLynn Nguyen's ivory set here.
Totême Arradon Ribbed-Knit Rayon-Blend Top (£260)
Max Mara Leisure Dolce Sweatpants (£115)
Style Notes: The typical thigh-grazing frocks of summer's past have been replaced by voluminous, smock-like styles, as seen on Alexis Foreman. Just add flats and a minimalist tote.
H&M Silk-Blend Dress (£99)
Aloha Rodeo Black and White Loafers (£120)
Style Notes: Quirky patterned trousers and a basic top create a foolproof spring look. Whether you opt for checks, tie-dye, a floral print or an abstract pattern (as Alyssa Coscarelli has done here), it's the perfect way to add some fun to your outfit.
Topshop White Premium Ribbed Crop Tank (£8)
Weekday Shear Trousers (£55)
Style Notes: Okay, this is officially one of the chicest outfits I've seen in a while. Camille gives her classic ensemble a lift by pairing various shades of beige. Very Parisian It girl.
H&M Jacquard-Knit Jumper (£25)
& Other Stories Side Slit Midi Skirt (£55)
Style Notes: Spring is definitely the perfect time to wear florals, and Ellie from Slip Into Style here shows us how to bring the pattern into 2020: by investing in a trapeze style dress and adding a statement headband.
H&M Chiffon Dress (£35)
Topshop Plaited Ribbon Headband (£15)
Style Notes: Shrunken cardigans have become an influencer favourite as of late. Add a little sophistication to your look by pairing the item alongside tailored trousers instead of the usual denim jeans.
& Other Stories Cropped Ribbed Cardigan (£55)
Alexander McQueen Tailored Wool-Blend Cigarette Trousers (£760)
Style Notes: It's time to rewear last season's favourite outfit combo: dresses with trainers. Still the easiest and the best for London spring.
New Look Curves Red Floral Frill Midi Dress (£30)
Adidas Stan Smith White Leather Trainers (£75)
Style Notes: A knitted dress is an unlikely addition to our spring wardrobe. Keep it fresh with a white cropped jacket and '90s baguette bag.
COS Knitted Crop Jacket (£99)
Mango Crochet Long Dress (£20)
Style Notes: This easy outfit combo is so brilliant because it can take us from winter to spring's early days. If you've already bought your spring slip skirt and can't wait to wear it, pair it with a roll-neck, jumper and boots.
& Other Stories Cropped Mock Neck Sweater (£35)
Joules Ria Leopard Print Midi Skirt (£60)
Style Notes: Stocking up on 2020's best dresses already? Take them for a spin by layering them under a long trench or jacket.
& Other Stories Belted Suede Workwear Jacket (£300)
Baum und Pferdgarten Adison Polka-Dot Midi Dress (£209)
Style Notes: A jumpsuit is for all seasons but thrives in the early days of spring. Try yours with bold ankle boots or trainers and layer it with a roll-neck underneath on cooler days.
Arket Cotton Linen Boiler Suit (£50)
Style Notes: You can stay warm and still try spring's trending colour combinations. Pastels keep the look fresh and light.
Albus Lumen Manus Oversized Linen Blazer (£395)
Mango Belt Suit Trousers (£30)
Style Notes: A good mac and jeans with a roll-neck are always go-to's for transitional weather. Lotte gives this look an update with a snakeskin print and a beaded bag.
Topshop Yellow Faux Fur Snake Car Coat (£65)
Topshop Mid Blue Premium Mom Jeans (£45)
Style Notes: We're looking to our school days for style inspiration this year and making like Megan Adelaide with a boxy blazer and cream pleated skirt.
& Other Stories Oversized Double Breasted Blazer (£95)
Violeta by Mango Next Printed Pleated Skirt (£28)
