With our unpredictable British weather, transitioning from your spring to summer wardrobe isn’t always a simple process. A summers day in Blighty might leave you sweltering, but more often than not, it can bring freezing temperatures and spitting rain, leaving you wondering what on earth you’re going to wear that day.

The answer here is layering. A well-layered outfit not only looks chic, but also keeps you warm and comfortable when the British weather isn’t on your side. Thin knits and jackets are perfect for wearing over dresses and tops, whilst lighter dresses are great with sandals in warmer weather and with tights if it’s a little bit chilly.

The super-chic, Refa Tailored Jacket (LR01) £85 is just the ticket for layering up for both smart and casual occasions and can be worn open or with its two-button fastening.  Team it with an easy-wear top like Poppy's Ribbed Scooped Neck Top (JP245) £24 and Carr & Westley’s comfortable and versatile wide leg Seashell Trousers (CT60) £55 for a fantastic seasonal combination.
