We're Basically Planning To Live in These 7 Outfits This Spring

Okay, we're officially confused about the weather. One second it's sub-zero winds, and the next it's balmy 15-degree sunshine. Seriously, England—make up your mind. But of course, this is the nature of spring, and every year we manage to power through the meteorological mayhem and make it to the other side where summer awaits. It'll happen. We promise.

So when it comes to deciding what to wear this March, we're taking a tentative—but no less stylish—approach and offering up five simple outfits that can easily be layered up or dressed down according to your needs. For example, fashion blogger Fran perfectly adapts a spring-ready leather skirt for unexpected wind chill with a printed cardigan and knee-high boots. For a smarter spin, we're looking to Brittany Bathgate, who layers up a pleated midi (another spring staple) with a wool workwear jacket.

The secret to their success? All these outfits feature pieces that can be brought out the moment summer hits, and that's what we call getting more bang for your buck. Scroll down to see our full edit of March-ready outfits.

1. Waistcoat + Tailored Trousers
