By Lakeisha Goedluck, 18 March 2018

With the weather app showing double figures for the upcoming week (let’s ignore this weekend, shall we?), it’s high time to give your wardrobe a bit of a spring clean. To help you make the transition, here’s a list of five top winter style staples and what you should swap them out for in preparation for the season ahead.

Donning grandad-inspired gear was the way to go for AW17/18, as street stylers everywhere were spotted stepping out in flat caps, refined slacks and chunky-soled trainers. As a result of the trend, outerwear options covered in heritage check patterns reigned supreme – from tartan-print trench coats to plaid puffer jackets.

If traditional patterns were a key feature of your winter wardrobe, try switching them out for old-school stripes instead. The classic French Breton top is a must-have when spring rocks around, or go for a more abstract take on stripes like this guy. Pair your patterned top with minimal trews in order to keep your look balanced.

Throughout the colder months, streetwear aficionados took to wearing tracksuit bottoms in order to both stay warm and look slick. In particular, bottom halves with a contrasting side stripe proved popular; styled with an oversized hoodie or steezy puffer jacket, they added retro flavour to any ’fit.

This spring, it’s time to let go of your trackies in favour of a pair of 90s-style skater jeans. Loose-fitting and in a light wash, team them with a corresponding denim jacket or opt for a Harrington jacket to truly nail transitional dressing.

Over the last few years, the puffer jacket has become ubiquitous. Popularised during the 90s, the oversized outerwear style has been adapted to appeal to a new generation. Covered in logos or presented in colour-block patterns, the ultimate winter jacket will undoubtedly be back for AW18.

During the warmer months, try layering up with another 90s-inspired go-to: the denim jacket. As it’s no longer a source of shame to double up on denim, when it comes to styling yours, go for matching jeans to signify that you’re ready for spring.

Retro knitwear is another feature of the grandadcore aesthetic that received a lot of hype last season. Whether a traditional fisherman rib or an all-out Argyle jumper, the trick was to team yours with of-the-moment pieces – notice how this guy’s chosen to wear his with on-point corduroy dungarees and minimal kicks.

For the upcoming season, the penchant for old-school picks is still going strong but you’ll likely be trading in your chunky knits for a slick vintage-style football shirt instead. Follow this chap’s lead and keep your look chilled; steer clear of a sportswear-led ensemble and wear your shirt with a cross-body bag and straight-fit jeans.

When it comes to refreshing your wardrobe ahead of a new season, it’s vitally important to consider what to wear on your feet. For AW17/18, hiking boots were high on the agenda (partly thanks to the bouts of seriously bad weather). Worn with pin-rolled jeans and a slick overcoat, it's always a wise decision to have a pair of lace-ups on hand throughout winter.

Fast-forward to spring, and the silhouette to add to your arsenal is the much-hyped chunky trainer. From the adidas Yung 1 to the Balenciaga Triple S, rocking shoes with platform soles is the way to go. Wear the borderline ugly model with a pair of wide-leg trousers or your go-to jeans.
