When the daffodils and crocuses start peeking out from the cold winter soil, you start to get that tickling urge to get out all of your pretty spring tops, dresses and skirts. The desire to wear bright colours and floral pattern affects every purchase you make when you go shopping. However, the trouble is, you cannot wear all of these gorgeous pieces, because it is simply too cold. So, first you are chilly and cannot get warm, then the sun comes out and you cannot believe you wore that thick winter coat. You just cannot win?!

That is why Katie&Jo has collected the best tips and tricks for staying warm, cool, colourful and stylish in this transition between Winter and Spring in London!
First of all, it is all about layering. Layer that pretty summer blouse with a warm cashmere cardigan or smart thin jacket; this will be easy to take off and chuck it in your bag. Be sure to wear a vest top underneath as well.

Fur gilets are also a great way to layer. Layer them over a long sleeved t-shirt in a dashing colour for an effortlessly stylish spring look, whilst keeping warm.

That feminine, floral and flowy dress looks cool and trendy with a loose fitted cashmere jumper layered on top. Add your favourite pair of booties and you are good to go!

Another great way to stay spring-hopeful and warm is with a fun coloured fur parka! The parkas from Katie&Jo have detachable lining, which make them the perfect transitional outerwear.

If you are not quite ready to let go of your big comfy scarf, but feel like it is actually time to let go, then opt for a colourful lightweight spring scarf. It will keep you warm, and add a pop of colour.
