Spring has definitely sprung but – plot twist – florals are out. This year, the way to make the seasonal transition is through statement items appropriate to this moody, unpredictable season. Here are four key items to get you into the swing of things as we move from spring into summer.

1. Trans-seasonal outer wear, worn with summer clothes

Who doesn’t love a great yet versatile cover-up? Blazers, light trench coats and cardigans are all key ingredients, but blazers are leading the pack this season. So it would be wise to get an oversized blazer that you can pair with everything, and that can be worn in summer for those late nights out.

2. Ankle boots that never go out of season

Ankle boots that work well in winter and in summer are always a winner. Blame it on the cowboy trend that is currently booming; these babies will look amazing worn with denim shorts, cut out jeans or skirts. Don’t be afraid to try this one out because next thing you know, you’ll be popping up on an influencer list.

3. Get your hands on a cap

We know spring to be one of the most unpredictable seasons of the year, that comes with a little bit of rain here and there. If you are a fashion girl who is constantly on the go and knows the difference a cap can make to an outfit, now’s the time to work it. You’ll be saved from a hair disaster, and be trendier than ever.

4. Go for a see-through tote

We live in unpredictable times. Big totes and tiny bags are existing side by side on runways and pavements the world over. During spring, we need a practical bag for hand creams, lip balm and sunglasses (just in case the sun gets too bright). A sassy way to jump on this trend is by going for a transparent tote.

This bag may look like nothing, but don’t be fooled – it will go with *everything*.
