Everyone knows “spring weather” can mean a lot of things. In Toronto, it might mean a few degrees above zero degrees Celsius, while just across the continent it can mean a balmy 25 degrees Celsius. We looked to our favourite bloggers across North America to find out what to wear in every variation of spring weather:
Less than 10 degrees Celsius:
No one wants to rock a coat in April, so Torontonian Jenn McNaughton of Ethics of Style found a great alternative – chunky-knit sweater dress layered over a midi skirt (try our Swing Skirt in Grey for a subtle flash of rich purple-grey goodness) – genius! And when it’s too cold for sandals, cut-out boots work as a compromise.
10-15 degrees Celsius:
A great blazer can be your best friend during transitional weather. Montreal blogger Dahye of Hey Dahye dresses hers down with a vintagey tee and perfectly ripped jeans. A medium-brimmed hat can keep your head warm when the weather’s breezy and protect your face when the sun comes out – what a double whammy!
15-20 degrees Celsius:
New Yorker Amber Fillerup Clark of Barefoot Blonde is wearing one of this season’s essential trends – the long-sleeved, bohemian dress. It’s the perfect choice for early spring, when you’re dying to wear something springy but it’s still too cold for a sundress. Try our Greta Dress in Pink for a similar free-spirited silhouette. Her black accessories make it city-girl cool, and we LOVE that braid!
20-25 degrees Celsius:
Vancouverite Jennifer Pistor of Prairie Girl in the City embraced that West Coast weather in a breezy kimono. It instantly upgrades a standard tee and jeans to high-fashion status.
25 degrees Celsius and up:
SoCal residents like legendary fashion blogger Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast are already trying to beat the heat. Rumi wears a sleeveless tee under this season’s most unexpected trend – overalls. She glams it up a bit with chic, high-heeled sandals.
