Casual Spring Outfit Guide

Spring has sprung. Move the sweaters and tights to the back of the closet and bring out all your lighter layers. Spring dressing is a little tricky because it’s not quite warm enough yet to really embrace summer dressing (i.e. short shorts and spaghetti strapped sundresses), but it’s also time to stop donning heavy sweaters, beanies, and coats. I’ve come up with three casual spring outfit ideas that can easily be mixed and matched with each other throughout the season. The key to spring is layering—the weather is finicky and it’s imperative to be ready for whatever rain or shine lies ahead.

1. The Anorak & T-shirt Dress

I love the utilitarian style of this army green anorak jacket from Madewell. It's also super practical for chilly spring mornings. This jacket is on the pricier side (coming in at $118), but I promise it's worth the investment. I've had a similar jacket for going on 6 years and I wear it all the time. Oh, and this t-shirt dress. Talk about comfy. Put on a cute pair of white sneakers, tie a bandana around your neck, and you've got the perfect outfit for a stroll at the Farmer's Market on a Saturday morning.

2. The Classic Trench and Black Brogues

There are certain classics that will never go out of style— and the trench coat is right up there with the little black dress. Pair it with a pair Levi's, a white tee, some black brogues, and a delicate gold necklace, and it's the perfect Albion-inspired spring outfit.

3. The Paper-bag Pant & Striped Tee

I've really been loving the culotte and paper-bag pant trend. Both of these types of pants are deceptively flattering. Don't believe me? Just go and try them on; you'll see what I mean. They are also super comfortable. So basically it's a win-win situation. I've paired these salmon colored ones with a classic striped tee, platform espadrille sandals, and some beautiful wooden hoop earrings.
