- Select your printed and colorful winter pieces that can be worn in the spring.
You may start trading your dark outfits with lighter colored ones to make your spring style breathable and appropriate. Opt for lighter jeans to mix your wardrobe up and think of pulling out your black blazers to pastels to create spring-friendly looks. There are floral dresses, blouses, and skirts you used to wear as an under layer in the winter season that you may now wear alone in the spring time. Breezy, chic, and colorful, printed outfits will add more personality and uniqueness to your spring outfits.
- Don’t overdo it on the layering.
This time of year may be great for layering, but no need to get carried away. Keep it simple by sticking to a maximum of two to three layers. For an office outfit you may think of layering a sweater dress with your skirt dress, or a printed dress with your crisp button-down shirt that will keep your outfit stylish and functional in the spring season. Trading your wool coats with trench coats or sleeveless jackets can also be great. Invest in a good, classic water resistant trench perfect for spring showers. Trench twill fabric is very tightly woven cotton, which helps provide for some water resistance.
This way, you’ll look more fashionable and functional on your street style while enjoying the transition of winter to spring season.
