Spring Packing List London

What to wear in London in Spring

It feels as though Spring has finally arrived in London! There’s blossom on the trees, daffodils in the parks, the days are feeling longer and my sandals even made an appearance this week!

If you’re planning a trip to London over the next couple of months and want some ‘local knowledge’ about what to pack for London in Spring then you have definitely come to the right place. You can see my Autumn packing list here.

Spring Packing List for London

Like most seasons in London, Spring can be pretty fickle weather wise – this year we’ve had late snows followed just a couple of weeks later by sweltering hot days.

And so the first essential on my packing list for London is a Spring coat.

Spring Coat

A simple trench coat is the perfect choice when it comes to a springtime coat, as long as you get one with a decent lining. They are really versatile and can be layered up and worn in various ways.

Flat Shoes

I swear by flat shoes – particularly on a city break where you do lots of walking. In the Spring I spend my time switching between converse, ballet pumps, dressier brogues and sandals – however if you are only packing light then I would suggest sticking to converse and a pair of ballet pumps.

These ballet pump style ‘slippers’ from Boden are fab – they add colour and fun to the plainest of outfits and would go with anything.

Lightweight Spring Jumpers/Sweaters

As I said before the weather in London can be pretty temperamental and so layers are key.

Lightweight Jumpers/Sweaters are always a useful standby – they can be thrown over dresses/t-shirts/button downs and keep you warm without adding too much bulk.

Lizbotr_style always has some fab colourful and slogan sweaters – they always elevate her outfit and jazz it up. I love the bright colour of this one she’s wearing.

I get simple colourful ones from Uniqlo here –  I love their V-neck style and all of the bright colours they come in.

A Spring Scarf

I pretty much have a scarf of some kind all year round! Might sound strange but I love how easily they can add colour and texture to a simple outfit.

They are also useful when going in and out of offices etc as they always seem to have air con blasting and I end up feeling freezing!

In the warmer months I use a lightweight scarf on chillier days and tend to go for a larger one that even makes a great little last minute picnic blanket or a cover up on an evening out.

Scarves with a statement print are a great way to add interest to your basics and they are lightweight so great for packing alongside your basics.

So there you have it – the quick guide to packing for Spring in London. Hope you found this helpful 🙂

    It’s so hard to know what to wear right now, but there are lots of helpful tips here! I desperately need some new summer clothes, but I know that when I buy some it’s just going to rain constantly! 😀

    Great tips and I love your pic with all the daffodils! I’m a fan of flat shoes too, much better for walking. I normally wear my Doc Martens but they can start to feel a bit heavy when the weather gets warm so I really like the shoes you’ve shown – they are in such cheery colours and would be perfect with jeans.

    I love that beige coat, perfect for spring time! I think flat shoes are a must in London, especially with all the stairs at some of the tube stations.

    I’m so jealous of London right now, we have had one nice day and that’s been it haha. Sometimes it is hard to put outfits together in spring so this has been helpful, flat shoes are always a great go to!
