My Favourite Spring Layering Tips

Hi Everyone,

Spring is one of those seasons where you really do need to be careful to layer your outfits. Temperatures change so fast it’s good to have an extra layer on hand just in case.

Especially now with COVID-19, you really don’t want to run the risk of getting sick. At the same time getting a few rays of sun whilst practising social distancing is also super important.

This post outlines a few of my simple but favourite Spring layering tips you might like to try too. At the end of the post I give you details of the outfits which are all from a favourite eco-friendly Italian family brand Phisique du Role.

Let’s start with the blazer…

Always handy with every Spring outfit. I also love layering different blazers on top of one another, or as in this case a long blazer style coat over the blazer.

As an extra layer it is always helpful to have a thin long sleeved sweater on hand…

The blazer and coat can be layered on top for extra warmth.

Layering a dress can also be fun for creating totally new looks:

The best layering trick for Spring and dresses is to wear a really thin body hugging top underneath. You don’t notice the top under the dress so the Summery look isn’t ruined but you manage to stay toasty warm.

I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it. The pattern on the fabric is especially designed by Phisique du Role,  inspired by antique china from  South Africa.

Adding a sweater over the dress is also a fun way to create a new look. Tuck the sweater slightly into the belt to keep the proportions right.
