7 Ways To Dress For Spring Without Getting Your Legs Out

7 Ways To Dress For Spring Without Getting Your Legs Out

The Debrief: Yep, we're all bored of winter dressing - but blue knees aren't a thing (unless you're a Smurf, in which case go right ahead...)

Spring and its mild weather has arrived which means trans-seasonal dressing is at its peak, but if you’re not quite prepared to go bare-legged yet then don’t worry...these stylish ladies show us that it's not a necessity. Bare legs can mean a whole ritual of shaving, moisturizing and tanning; which is a lot of effort that not everyone can be bothered with. Moreover, the temperamental British weather makes it too risky not to layer up.

 Sometimes minimalism trumps everything. The lightweight materials make this outfit a winner for spring! Pairing together a khaki bomber, plain white tee and a calf-length skirt creates a flattering silhouette.

Mom jeans don’t always scream spring, but the way these are paired with a Victorian-esque floaty blouse keeps it seasonal. Accessorising is key with this look. The strappy sandals show a hint of skin, and elevate the look. Whereas the fedora acts as a statement piece, plus it's also practical because it sheilds you from all types of weather.

Off-the-shoulder tops have been dominant in the high-street’s Spring/Summer collections. They look fab with high rise jeans and a pair of heels for a dressed-up spring look. Shoulders are way less maintenance than legs too.

The flashes of skin break up this outfit and keep it from looking too wintery. Who doesn’t love pom-poms and leopard print?!

Loads of lose-fitting layers are the order of the day here - with the added bonus that it'll disguise the massive lunch you're going to have later.

Not only a stylish ensemble but also super versatile. When summer comes just ditch the jeans and tah-dah, you’ve got yourself two outfits in one.

This suit says 'I've got my shit together'. This is power-dressing at the top of its game. The magic of this two-piece is in the way it manages to retain a sense of femininity and spring-like feel, while also looking like a total boss outfit.
