There's no point in denying that the weather isn't quite as warm as we'd like it to be right now. So what do you wear when spring isn't quite making an appearance and you can't be doing with the rain anymore? Take outfit inspiration from some of our favourite influencers, of course.

After trawling through their Instagram accounts, we managed to come up with seven key looks that are ideal for any sort of changeable weather April might throw at us. From cool layered outfits to co-ords that are right for the office (and won't have you freezing), there are plenty of ideas you'll want to copy immediately. Keep scrolling for everything you need to know.

1. Light Layering + Closed-Toe Shoes

Style Notes: First up, April is the month to get acquainted with some clever layering. Think of lighter pieces that will keep you warm on chillier spring days. This look is exactly what we mean: A polished shirtdress worn with trousers and chic flats.

Arket Elastic Waist Wool Trousers (£79)

Marks & Spencer Leather Square Toe Pumps (£35)

2. The Slouchy Suit + Chunky Sandals

Style Notes: Still not ready to give up your cosy clothes post-winter? Right now there is a load of slouchy suits around that are still smart enough for the office. Just pair with ankle boots or loafers.

3.Oversized Blazer + Slip Skirt

Style Notes: Slip skirts might feel fancy, but that doesn't mean you need to stash them away—they look the springtime part paired with an oversized blazer and a slogan tee.

4. Double Denim + Tan Accessories

Style Notes: The denim shirt is an item that rarely goes out of fashion. It's an ideal top option, too, as it gives you a bit of warmth without making you feel boiling if the sun finally decides to make an appearance. Take a leaf out of Aïda's book and wear it with your favourite jeans and tan accessories.

5. Jumpsuit + Matching Accessories

Style Notes: The coolest accessories combo right now? Strappy sandals and a shoulder bag, of course. Best paired with boiler suit such as this one from Essential Antwerp.

6. Midi Dress + Sneakers

Style Notes: It comes as no surprise that dresses are super popular around springtime. But how to wear them right now? Emma Rose Thatcher's option is one of our favourites—just pair your frock with some cool sneakers and layered jewellery.

7. Bright Knit + Statement Earrings

Style Notes: A bright knit is all you need to make a statement until the weather perks up. We recommend neutralising vivid hues with ecru trousers and gold jewellery.
