It may be too soon to toss the boots for sandals, but spring is definitely on its way. What can you do to wake up your wardrobe and perk up your mood? Here are three easy ways to transition your wardrobe from Winter to Spring.
1. Inject a New Spring Color
Tired of wearing drab winter colors? Inject an of-the-moment color like lavender to brighten your outfit and give you a lift.
This delicate pastel t-shirt softens a high contrast winter look. Adding a scarf in some pretty accent colors brings a cheery spring warmth to your face and will make you glow! As the snow melts, don’t forget to ditch your winter booties and slip into a pair of chic, classic flats. You can wear this tee right into summer with shorts or your favorite white jeans.
2. Layer Winter with Spring
This time of year there are so many fresh, new things in the stores begging to be worn, that they’re hard to resist. If you’ve been eyeing that darling shirtdress with the pretty spring pattern, but are debating whether you should buy it now, go for it.
Yes, it’s still cold outside but here’s the fix. Just layer your look, by wearing leggings with your spring shirtdress until it’s warm enough for you to go bare leg. Layering spring clothes over winter ones is a great way to transition your wardrobe and get maximum use out of your wardrobe.
You can wear booties now with your leggings and once you switch over to shirtdress only, simply swap your booties for a cute spring sandal. If you don’t have a shirtdress, seriously consider getting one. It is one of the most versatile dresses you can own.
3. Bridge the Seasons with a Light, Airy Print
Winter is all about dark colors, heavy prints and rich textures like a pair of black leather pants worn with a fuzzy oversize sweater that you can cozy up by the fire in. Spring, on the other hand, is lite, bright, airy and clean. One way to bridge the gap as you move from cold weather to warm weather is to add a light, airy print.
For example, there’s no rule you can’t wear a bright white print shirt in winter, but the reality is if you live up north, it’s more a spring/summer thing. So now as these types of tops are starting to roll out, toss on an airy white print blouse with your winter leather leggings or a winter skirt. A white blouse with a print that has both cheery spring colors and touches of black in it ties your mid-season look together. Suddenly you’ve found the perfect sweet spot between winter and spring.
Add some bright accents like this blue quilted bag and taupe slides, and watch your outfit bloom like spring flowers in a garden.
