I don't know about you but I'm desperate to wear something new. It doesn't mean I have to buy anything but it does require putting down the puffer coat and chunky boots, and stepping into something that hasn't seen the light of day for a while. In my mind it's spring, but in reality the wardrobe switchover (yes, that's a biannual immersive experience in my house) won't be for a month or so yet.

In preparation however, the rest of the fashion world is lightyears ahead of me. Already there are spring outfits a-plenty shooting out of my IG feed, and I'm saving posts like crazy. However, if you're not quite ready for an all-out pink head-to-toe look (very 2021) or up to shedding your cosy layers quite yet, then I have a few very simple combinations up my sleeve for you. These easy outfit pairings below are comfortable, grown-up and very reliable—keep scrolling to shop out the looks that provide plenty of spring outfit inspiration for 2021 and beyond.

1. THE STRETCHY SKIRT SUIT

Style Notes: We've lived in cosy co-ords over the winter, so it's no be surprise the trend is continuing into spring with skirt-and-top pairings. If you're lucky, you'll find a matching cardigan too.

Y.A.S Knit Co-Ord in Purple (£48)

Y.A.S Knitted Midi Skirt Co-Ord (£55)

Style Notes: The overall effect is sophisticated but you can still totally dress down and nice skirt and jumper with sneaks.

By Malene Birger Orista Metallic Ribbed-Knit Midi Skirt (£220)

2. NEUTRAL-COLOURED BAGGY JUMPER + TROUSERS

Style Notes: Like a posh alternative to your tracksuit, a baggy pair of tailored trousers and an oversized jumper always looks good in these neutral colours.

Arket Chunky Wool Alpaca Jumper (£119)

La Fetiche Malik High-Rise Striped Wool Trousers (£574)

Style Notes: A jumbo cable knit jumper and loose-fitting jeans works a treat too.

Mr Mittens Maxi Cable Wool Sweater (£570)

& Other Stories Banana Leg Cotton Trousers (£85)

3. CUTE TOP + HIGH-WAISTED JEANS

Style Notes: An embroidered tank top and fancy blouse is about the sweetest thing you could ever pair with your jeans.

Etsy Vintage 1960s Sweater Neon Embroidered Floral 1960s 70s Knit | Etsy (£34)

Sea Charlie Ruffled-Collar Cotton-Poplin Blouse (£390)

Agolde Parker Blue Straight-Leg Jeans (£220)

Style Notes: Kooky knits are cropping up all over my IG feed, and because they're a bold item they only need denim to look really good.

House of Sunny House of Sunny Island Peggy Cardigan (£94)

Reiss Lakely Ripped Pale Blue Mid Rise Straight Jeans With Rip Detail – Reiss (£110)

4. MINI DRESS + KNEE BOOTS

Style Notes: Bored of tights? Then you may feel inclined to ditch 'em and pop on some tall boots with a short dress instead—minis are back, after all.

Mother of Pearl + Net Sustain Heidi Floral-Print Tencel Lyocell-Jacquard Mini Dress (£395)

Aeyde Sidney Leather Knee Boots (£440)

Style Notes: So the reality is you're going to need a coat when outside, but this kind of long-short ratio looks '90s and that's not a bad thing.

Monki Classic Trench Coat (£75)

Asos Design Shirred Mini Skater Dress With Shirred Cuffs in Khaki (£30)

Sergio Rossi Suede Knee Boots (£395)
