6 Perfect Outfits to Wear in 20-Degree Weather

·3-min read

What should you wear when it's neither completely boiling nor on the freezing side? This question is important to answer this week as my weather app tells me it's going to be one of those weeks when the weather is that in-between stage. Granted, the app isn't always the most reliable but the thing is it can be a difficult climate to dress for, which is why it's important to work out what to wear. Do you take a jacket with you? Can you still wear sandals? (Answer: yes, it is still that warm). But then again, when the weather is slightly cooler, is it time for boots? Throw in the additional issue of it raining all week and you've got yourself a game of sweat or water.

As you can see, this gives us plenty of style questions to answer, which is why we decided to go hunt down some of the best not-cold-but-not-hot outfit ideas. As a result, we've found seven perfect looks that will carry you through those strange summer days when you're not quite sure what's going to happen with the weather. From lightweight jackets to jeans and chunky sandals, keep scrolling for outfit ideas to last you a full week for when it's 20 degrees outside.

1. Slip Skirt + Boots + Suede Jacket

Style Notes: The beauty about this outfit is that the thin layer under the suede jacket means you'll be able to cool off once you take it off. The slip skirt is only a thin layer but the boots provide a shield against any chilly breeze. Also great to wear with chunky sandals if it's on the warmer side.

2. Long-Sleeve Top + Trousers + Sandals

Style Notes: Oh, how we love this outfit. It ticks off all the trends that will last for years (puff-sleeves, high-waisted beige trousers) and also includes Chanel shoes. Perfect.

3. Loose Blazer + High-Waisted Trousers + Trainers
