Even though I’m starting to kick off my spring shopping, I’m not fully tucking away those winter staples just yet since the weather can be unpredictable and inconsistent. In fact, I find that many winter classics, such as booties and chunky knits, are great for complementing spring’s top trends during this transitional period. Since the weather has a huge influence on what we wear, I wanted to share some of my tips on how you can transition your winter wardrobe into spring. If you ever have days where you feel like you have nothing to wear, these tips will help you pull together a foolproof transitional look.
Invest in statement jackets
As winter moves into spring, there’s no better way to elevate your spring looks than with a statement jacket. Since this timeframe is all about layering, it’s super easy to create chic looks that feel new. A few of my go-to styles are trench coats, blazers in pastel colors, and moto jackets. I love that they’re the perfect weight for spring weather and can be thrown over anything.
Layer sweaters over spring dresses
I typically start my season by purchasing versatile pieces that I can wear now and later – and some of those pieces are often dresses. If it feels too cold to throw on a frilly dress, top it off with those chunky knits you’ve been living in all winter long. I also love layering on a cardigan and cinching it at the waist with a belt.
Try light colored denim
I’m often caught in dark indigo and black jeans over winter, so opting for light colored jeans definitely help brighten up the wardrobe. From tan colors to lighter washes, you’ll be able to pair them with bold and brighter spring colors as well as darker winter tones.
Swap boots for heels or chic flats
Boots are an essential part of my wardrobe, but I’m ready to put them away by the time March rolls around. To seamlessly transition your winter wardrobe into spring, swap out your boots for a pair of feminine pumps or flats. The simple act of changing into a spring-friendly shoe style is a great way to freshen up chunky winter staples.
Wear lots of neutral tones
During winter, we often resort to dark colors such as gray, navy, and black. This poses more of an edgy look, so I find that adding more beige and cream tones come off lighter and more feminine for spring. They’re so easy to incorporate into your wardrobe.
