Okay, so it's sunshine one minute and a blizzard the next, but that's the British springtime for you—completely unpredictable. But don't worry, for we've found the transitional solution to your current outfit woes: spring denim.

Jeans are timeless, easy to style, comfortable and, most importantly, cosy, so it makes sense to plan a handful of chic spring jeans outfits that you can throw on at a moment's notice when the weather proves changeable.

From edgy leather shirting to stylish cardigans, the following spring jeans outfits will satisfy your fashionable needs until baring your legs becomes a feasible option. Scroll below to see them and to shop the staples you need to re-create them.
