Here’s a Sneak Peek at the Capsule Wardrobes
In Britain, it’s easy for the traveler to stick out like a sore thumb in walking boots, convertible zip leg trousers, an SLR camera, guidebook, and a backpack. Wearing all this in the middle of London screams, “tourist”! That level of travel gear is more appropriate for countryside treks in the Lake District, for example, not a city.
British fashion isn’t quite as chic as the French, and it isn’t always as slouchy as American fashion or as zany as Australian fashion. It can be edgy or conservative. But one thing’s for sure: just like the rest of Europe, a good fit is key. And when in doubt, choose dressy over casual.
Spring in England can be unpredictable. In the earlier months, it can be rainy and chilly and it doesn’t always warm up until summer. Snow in March isn’t uncommon and May tends to be one of the nicest months of the year.
It still rains a lot, so you’ll definitely need a waterproof jacket. There’s a good chance it won’t get above the low 60s °F. I carry a compact umbrella at all times in the UK so I’m always prepared for spontaneous showers.
Spring is a transition period between winter and summer, so layers are still important, but in the later months think about swapping that chunky winter coat for a regular jacket. If it suits your style, leather jackets are perfect for days where the weather is crisp yet mild.
With the chillier weather it’s the perfect time to wear light pullover sweaters, hats, scarves, and boots. Pair an oversized sweater with skinny jeans and knee-high boots. Layer with a scarf and add a coat or parka in the evenings when it gets colder.
For a dressier look, pair a long-sleeve blouse with a blazer for day or a coat for evenings, along with heeled booties. If you prefer skirts and dresses, rather than trousers, choose leggings and opaque tights to make outfits a little warmer.
As for jackets, stick to a leather jacket for early fall days and transition to a heavier coat by the end of the season as it gets closer to winter. Remember that scarves are extremely useful. A warm, knit option will keep you warm during this transitional season. When it’s not quite cold enough for a coat, then a jumper or cardigan combined with a hat and scarf will do.
