One day it’s freezing, the next it feels like spring is in the air and you’re trying to update your wardrobe for warmer weather with lighter fabrics and brighter colors. However, those chilly days aren’t over yet. The trick for transitioning from winter to spring is to find flexible pieces that keep you comfortable yet fashionable as the weather turns. So, keep on reading for the 5 transitional pieces to get you from winter to spring.
Scarves are one of the best investments for your transitional wardrobe because they’re easy to add when needed and remove when not. In the middle of the spring season, you may start to leave the bulkier knits and heavy cashmere behind and opt for billowy cotton or silk scarves to highlight your outfits, while still providing you with warmth during chilly days. Like fashion blogger Michele Krusi, you may even mix prints with your scarves to add some flair to your basic denim shirtdress.
Cardigans work on the chilliest of days to the breezy ones as long as you layer them strategically. When you’re dealing with a cold office or a day with a bit more bite in the air, layer something long-sleeve and warm with your casual Friday outfit like fashion blogger Jessica Ricks did. On warmer days, a camisole or a short-sleeve shirt would work with a cardigan, just look for ones embellished with bright jewels or springy patterns.
- Jackets and Coats
You went all winter wearing the warmest coat possible, which didn’t always leave you looking sleek. Now, it’s time to show off your chic jackets and lightweight coats. While pea coats remain great to wear throughout the beginning of spring, a trench coat is a classic option that can keep you warm yet polished.
In the middle of spring, camisoles are great to keep you sexy and chic as the weather warms up. Create a perfect spring accent to an otherwise wintry look. Like fashion blogger Nina Suess, think of a pastel pink camisole and dressy trousers that will look cozy with a printed coat, making that transitioning look effortlessly chic.
- Bright Colored Accessories
When it’s still too cold for you to lighten your layers or lose the giant winter coat, you can still herald the arrival of spring by incorporating bright colors in your accessories. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, you may brighten up your all-black outfit with a bright blue scarf. Splashes of color help break up the monotony of the dark winter palette. You may also choose bright and bold earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings, a flower-printed handbag or and such. By heeding these tricks, you’ll make your transitioning looks effortlessly chic.
