During 2020, it's safe to say my style was built solely on comfort. Like so many, working from home meant I barely left the house, save from walking the dogs. Living in Scotland and being the sort of person who feels the chill in even the slightest o summer breezes, meant that, when I did so, I had to wrap up. Aside from the odd dress or skirt-and-jumper combination, I spent inordinate amounts of my time in joggers—and not fancy ones at that. Comfortable they may be, but wearing them day in and day out made me feel as if I'd lost my sense of style.
While they're still likely going to remain an integral part of my wardrobe this year, I've decided that I'll also be experimental with my outfits. To equip me with all the inspiration I need, I started archiving some of my favourite outfits I spotted on Instagram. So good were the ensembles I found, I decided to share them with you, too. Below, you'll find an edit of the 63 spring-ready outfit ideas I intend on copying.
Lug-sole boots make for the perfect transitional piece to style springtime dresses with.

Freddie gives her pastel suit a cool clash with the addition of a mint shirt.
I don't know what I love more—Sabina's cropped cardigan or her glittery sandals.
Tie-dye tops are still all the rage right now. Just add a bucket hat and chunky kicks to complete the '90s homage.
Wide-leg trousers make for comfortable at home attire, especially when paired with a super-soft knit.
Monikh's tailored joggers put my aforementioned slouchies to shame.
It's all too tempting to tuck in your shirting, but I'll be leaving it out-over for a fresh silhouette.
Dungarees have never looked so cute as they do with a pastel knit worn underneath.
Jeanne's combination of a slip skirt, silk camisole and short-sleeved cardigan is simple but brilliant.
Note to self: A sheer midi dress, beaded bag and mule sandals make for chic summer attire, should weddings resume.

Souped-up leather skirts look their best paired with a basic jersey top and minimal accessories.

I'll be investing in a statement coat like Nnenna's for the days when I actually venture out of the house.
Emili's jumper-and-shirt duo might not be a new look to try, but her cropped knit and oversize shirt make it feel fresh.
Two words: pink leather.
Like Monikh, I've also invested heavily in the puff-sleeve trend, the tops of which I'll wear with denim and thong sandals.

My love of knitted co-ords knows no bounds.
Feathers are perfectly acceptable to wear 24/7.
Belted cardigans are my vice right now.

I know I'll be wearing Ada's colour combination of pistachio, ecru, and tan all year.
Anne proves the skirt suit is still very relevant, and I fully intend on wearing my old Jigsaw two-piece with platform boots also.
A prime example of how to wear jeans and a nice top.
A belted blazer is a better blazer.
If you're anything like me, you'll also consider adding sheer black tights to this ensemble for extra warmth.
Naturally, Jeanette is right ahead of spring's slouchy jean trend, which I want to wear with a knitted two-piece, too.
Vinyl and knitwear make for a chic texture clash.

Emma Rose Thatcher has just reminded me of my favourite combination—a printed blazer and backless mules.
On paper, tie-dye and leopard print shouldn't work but, as Kelly proves, they truly go hand-in-hand.
Note to self: A colour-pop beanie makes for an offbeat and effective accessory choice.
