You already know I spent a few days in Cotswold, south west of England, early this month.
Before the trip, I had done a bit of research about the temperature and of course googled and instagrammed the local images. The temperature there during this time of the year is actually quite similar as in London. And according to images I found online, early Spring in England, you see the flowers blooming everywhere, beautiful pink blossom in the air, yellow daffodil, white snowdrop, and of course bluebells in the streets. When we arrived, it was indeed so beautiful there full of spring everywhere. But it was actually really cold! It felt nothing like in London. It felt a bit chilly in London in early March but not at all cold anymore. I guess, London might be the warmest city in UK.
Anyway, “thanks” to my brief online research and with my mood for spring. I didn’t bring proper winter clothes for the trip. I brought some trans-seasonal clothes which I would wear in London… Can you blame me?! 😛 so here we are, my solution of not enough clothes- put everything on you! And for people like me who just have enough chunky and bulky winter garments and can’t wait to put spring clothes on, layering is always a good idea.
- layering: put as many layers as possible even if they are thin. Actually several thin layers can be even warmed than one or two big chunky layers only.
- close up the neck. When I don’t have enough clothes on, I always try to close up the neck area even with a T-shirt. That works wonder and I personally think with a layers around the neck is very chic! A trend will never goes away.
- cap, hat, beanie or just a headscarf. Do try the headscarf. This “The Queen” headscarf fashion is going to be the trend this year. See my another post for this trend here.
- boots or socks. If you have boots, of course that is the easiest but even if you don’t, put your ankle socks on even with pumps, sandals or slippers. Big trend of the year and also keep you very warm. It is comfortable too! See how I style the socks trend here.
- vest or gilet under the jacket or coat. What I got here is a fur vest but do try with with vest or gilet or even sleeveless puffer in any other materials underneath of the jacket or coat. Trust me, it is so much warmer this way than on top of the jacket or coat like we usually would do in womenswear. This is actually in mens fashion for decades. You can see lots of mens jackets or coats come with under layers. Sometimes from mens fashion, we can get lots of inspirations.
