What To Wear In April

It’s a month of long weekends, Easter outings and ever-changing weather. If you’re in need of some inspiration for what to wear in April, I’ve pulled together some favourites based on what’s coming up in my diary.

You’ll find long sleeve dresses that are perfect for the switching seasons, plus versatile jumpsuits you can wear from a brunch date to that fancy new bar opening. For the optimists planning for warmer weather ahead, I’ve also picked out some looks for beer garden drinks and future holiday plans.

Press pause on refreshing your weather app and have a little scroll through my pick of April outfits, these are pieces that make an impression come rain or shine.

 

For Special Events: The Floral Midi

The perfect piece for that pending spring wedding or birthday party, this green floral midi is a combination of a shirt dress and a wrap dress (two of my favourite styles!) I love the waist-hugging fit and collar detail, and the ruched detailing on the tummy area is so flattering. I’d pair this fresh print with a pair of espadrille mules and some gold hoops, or a pair of strappy white square toe heels.

For A Dressy Lunch: The Printed Jumpsuit

A printed jumpsuit that says: ‘We’ll have another bottle of Whispering Angel, please’. With breezy culottes and a wrap-over neckline, this stylish green and navy jumpsuit is a versatile piece you could wear to anything from day drinks to a girls’ night out. Finish off the look with a wicker bag and some barely-there heels.

For Date Night: The Red Leopard Dress

This is *the* dress for those times when you want a wow moment but also a relaxed fit that you can comfortably eat and drink in. It’s definitely sexy with its open back detail, red leopard print and thigh-high split, but has a lovely loose shape, so you don’t feel restricted. Plus, it’s designed with full length sleeves for unpredictable weather. Layer on some gold jewellery, add some spiky heels, and you’re dinner date-ready.

For Easter Sunday Roast: The Brielle Dress

You’ve booked a lazy Sunday pub lunch with the fam and now you need a dress. This bold green leopard maxi shirt dress is smart enough for a special occasion but has a lovely comfy fit to accommodate that second portion of roasties. Adjust the neckline, leg split and waist-belt to your preferred fit and pair with your fave heels or flats.
