Be prepared for unpredictable weather
This time of year is always difficult for the style conscious - too cold to be spring, too warm for winterwear. It throws up serious dress dilemmas.
It's made even worse by the current erratic weather. Warm sunny days last week, sleet and the weekend and snow forecast for this week makes it hard to know whether to pop a brolly in your bag or go all out and take snowshoes!
Therefore, the most important thing to do it layer it up – and be prepared for changeable weather.
LK Bennett's hot Wilder Dress is perfect for this time of year, in a bright blue shade with a subtle animal print.
The long sleeves and knee-length hemline make it ideal for the mid-season style quandaries.
And the ruch detailing at the waist is incredibly flattering, creating a feminine silhouette.
Because it has a bold colour, you can team with thick opaque tights, mid-calf boots and a cosy scarf for colder days.
Or warm it up with some nude hose and black court shoes.
Both looks are perfect for work or the weekend, making the Wilder a wardrobe staple.
If you love this look but want to embrace this season's hot geometric trend, the modern Romina Dress ticks all the right boxes.
The pattern is fun and fashion-forward but subtle enough for a day in the office as it embraces the ever-in-vogue monochrome look.
To add a bit of colour when the mercury drops, throw it on with a pair of coloured tights and black boots.
Or keep it simple with bare legs and a pair of bright red shoes.
