March is upon us, bringing with it that awkward transitional period that leaves us scratching our head as we get dressed every day.
The weather is warming up, the days are longer and we’ve got our sights firmly set on our spring summer wardrobe.
However despite us willing spring to come, it’s not quite warm enough to dig out our mini skirts and summer sandals just yet. Coats are still very much a necessity and we’re holding onto our chunky boots for now.
This awkward time in-between winter and summer is always tricky, so we’ve put together four transitional outfits to inspire you ahead of the warm weather.
Whether you’re looking for printed dungarees, knitted co-ords or floral dresses, there’s something for everyone here.
The Zara Playsuit
Medium Ridge Hoop Earrings, £125, Lucy Williams x Missoma – buy now
Sunglasses, £6.99, H&M – buy now
Oversized Trench Coat, £150, Cos – buy now
Playsuit, £49.99, Zara – buy now
Chunky-soled Loafers, £24.99, H&M – buy now
This bouclé playsuit from Zara is perfect for the transitional period.
Puff sleeves are set to be big for summer, but the tweed will keep you warm.
Those brave enough to go bare legged can team with a trench coat and chunky loafers, or add tights for colder days.
The Knitted Co-ord
El Valle Check Jacquard Knit Top, £115, Paloma Wool – buy now
Puerto Check Jacquard Knit Trousers, £120, Paloma Wool – buy now
Billow Posy Bag, £99, Hvisk – buy now
Mules, £17.99, H&M – buy now
Ideal for milder weather, this knitted co-ord packs a sixties-style punch.
It nods to both the checkerboard and monochrome trends that we’ll see this year, but keeps you covered for extra warmth.
Add colourful accessories to the look to keep it interesting.
The Floral Dress
Alpaca Blend Turtleneck Knit Sweater, £75, & Other Stories – buy now

Despite what Miranda Priestley once said, you can’t go wrong with florals for spring.
This year, it’s all about big, bold florals that make an impact – but if you’re not quite ready for spring dresses, add a knit and boots.
