Transitioning our wardrobes from winter’s cozy knits and trendy layers to spring’s fresh, bright and colorful clothes may seem daunting, but it can also be exciting. While we’re eager to start wearing the hottest spring trends, we can’t quite pack away our warmer winter clothes just yet. So, keep on reading for our guidelines on how to transition your wardrobe from winter to spring.
Lighten up your layers.
The only way to survive the fluctuating spring temperatures is to layer. You can always remove layers, but you can’t add them if you don’t have them. Though you may pack away your winter puffer coats, you may still opt for winter coats made with lighter fabrics that can be worn comfortably under a jacket or shirt, where you can take off easily when the weather warms up. Like fashion blogger Michele Krusi, think of a plaid shirt teamed with a tartan skirt in lighter fabrics but warm them up with a cozy bomber jacket that will keep your spring appropriate.
Go bold and get creative with prints.
Switching over to a spring-friendly color palette makes wearing sweaters and knits tolerable, while you wait for the weather to officially warm up. Spring is all about starting fresh, and the best way to breathe life back into your wardrobe is with some fun prints. Like fashion blogger Michele Krusi, think of wearing a floral print top teamed with a striped skirt to show off your creative skills in a spring way. Think of floral patterns, graphic prints, abstract prints and such that can add some flair to your looks.
Show some skin in small doses.
We all want to ditch the tights, but unfortunately, it’s still too cool. However, you can start to show some skin in small doses by wearing patterned tights with your cozy leather jacket like fashion blogger Sonja Petrkowsky did. Or, make things a bit sassy with an off shoulder top teamed with jeans and ankle boots like fashion blogger Johanna Olsson did, making your style urban-inspired with a sexy twist. If you don’t want to pack away your tall boots yet, then wear them with sexy shorts or skirts like fashion blogger Oksana Ohhrehova did, while keeping your top part covered to make everything balanced.
While the weather may force you to still wear some of your winter clothes, you can start making the switch to bright and colorful spring accessories like scarves, sunglasses, or necklaces. Like fashion blogger Aimee Song, think of wearing a pair of sunglasses again with your weekend outfits to add some spring vibe to your street style. By heeding these tricks, you’ll be able to transition your wardrobe from winter to spring strategically.
