With the freezing weather gradually warming, most of your classic staples will do just fine when mixed-in with a few new-season buys. Before packing away your cozy ensembles until the cooler weather returns, keep on reading for the 7 fashion tips for transitioning a spring wardrobe from winter.
- Do experiment with color and prints.
Where once was an all-white or all-black outfit, try adding a pop of color to your transitional looks. A healthy dose of color should move your staple items seamlessly into the new season and cheer up even the simplest of looks in seconds. If you’re not ready to embrace the colorful dressing yet, think of yellow lace up shoes that can brighten your all-black outfit like fashion blogger Amy Spencer did.
- Layer-up new season staples.
It may not be warm enough to slip into those new spring investment buys just yet, but throw on with a classic trench coat and you’re good to go. Think slip dresses, midi dresses, and leather skirts that will look chic with a spring coat.
- Ditch the tights.
Midi skirts, culottes, and printed dresses all look achingly cooler when worn with bare legs, and should you be feeling brave enough, now’s definitely the time to bare all. Dip your toe in by wearing boots with your shorter hemlines, making your street style chic and effortless.
- Resort to trench coats.
It’s never wise to do away with your outerwear completely. But with spring brings hope of warmer weather and with that, we’re slipping into something a little lighter. Trench coats will always be a winning option that you can wear with your favorite outfits.
- Amp up the denim.
If you’ve heavily invested in all those denim trends, spring is the perfect time to let them shine. It’s always wise to have an array of denim all year round, but there really is no better time to enjoy your trusty blues than spring. Like fashion blogger Jenny Tsang, amp up your casual jeans with a dressy chambray top that looks creative and effortless.
- Swap your boots for slip-ons, sandals, or pumps.
After many months spent in chunky boots, there’s no better feeling than a bare ankle, and this season it’s all about embracing the slip-on, sandals, or even classic pumps. It’s the perfect transitional shoe to keep us chic and effortless. Like fashion blogger Erica Hoida, think of an all white outfit and a pair of classic pumps that will look cozy chic with a blanket scarf.
- Show a bit of shoulder.
Cold shoulder dressing is one trend that looks set to stay. Team your full skirt with a chic off-shoulder top, or go for a flirty shoulder-baring top with leather trousers. By heeding these tricks, you’ll be able to update your style while keeping everything weather appropriate.
