It’s probably obvious that I’m over my heavy winter layers since I’ve been talking so much about spring fashion. The one thing I wear on repeat during this time of the year is denim, so I wanted to share some of my go-to transitional denim outfits. Luckily, you probably already own most of the pieces needed to recreate these looks. And if not, I always recommend investing in neutral basics because it makes dressing for in-between seasons so much easier. Plus, you can always add in a bright-colored handbag or pair of heels for that extra pop. Keep scrolling for my favorite denim looks right now.
Duster Trench, Denim & Strappy Heels
You guys know that my favorite transitional outfits involve a statement jacket. I love how a flowy, lightweight trench keeps me covered during the crisp mornings, but when afternoon temperatures are at their peak, it’s what I’m wearing underneath that matters most. You’ll typically find me in a long-sleeve tee and jeans combo.

Wool Coat, Coated Jeans & Scarf
There’s nothing chicer than a wool coat for early spring. You can still invest in a good one now and it’ll last you for years to come. Style it with a pair of coated jeans and layer on an oversized scarf for a cozy but elevated look. By mid-day, you can keep the scarf and lose the jacket.

Shearling Jacket & Combat Boots
My style leans dressy most of the time, but I love a cool, laidback look too. Two of my favorite pieces to achieve an effortless, day-time edge are combat boots and a shearling jacket.

Blazer, Logo Tee, & Distressed Jeans
I’m all about getting the most mileage out of my wardrobe, which means I’m constantly mixing and matching basics. You can never go wrong with a pair of jeans, graphic tee, and smart blazer when transitioning from one season to the next. Keep the outfit interesting with a pair of colorful shoes or a sleek designer handbag.

Moto Jacket, Bodysuit, Sneakers
Bodysuits are a layered outfit’s best friend so they are a real no brainer in terms of an in-between wardrobe essential. Tuck a bodysuit into light colored denim, then add a moto jacket and sneakers for casual chic ensemble! The body-hugging fit of a bodysuit makes it so easy to layer up without the bulk at the start of spring.

Oversized Denim Jacket & Lace Cami
Denim on denim is another classic combo that never gets old – and you most likely have all the pieces you need to recreate this outfit. I tend to mix black and blue denim for a subtler take on the look – I like that it’s less intentional. To dress it up, wear stiletto heels and accessories with gold hardware.
