April is upon us, and although we can officially say spring is here, the weather still can’t seem to commit to the change in season—one minute, it’s glorious sunshine, and then the next, it’s threatening to downpour. Ah, Britain. So what do you wear when spring isn’t quite making an appearance and you can’t be dealing with the cold weather anymore? Take outfit inspiration from some of our favourite influencers, of course.

After trawling through their Instagram accounts, we managed to come up with 11 key looks that are ideal for any sort of changeable weather April might throw at us. From cool layered outfits to co-ords that are right for the office (and won’t have you freezing), there are plenty of ideas you’ll want to copy immediately. We’ve actually already begun incorporating them into our outfit rotations. Keep scrolling for everything you need to know on the subject of what to wear in April.

Style Notes: With April showers being as omnipresent as they are, it pays to have a coat you can don should the heavens open. Of course, there are raincoats aplenty, but if you want something that feels more “fashion,” look to the fun, faux-leather styles currently populating the shopping circuit.
