How to Transition Your Wardrobe from Winter to Spring
Spring is finally here! Now, we can bust out our favorite floral dresses and silk tops, and store away the parkas until the next snowfall. The cusp of the new season is another reason for us to be more creative with our wardrobe. We know you don’t want to waste time in front of your closet wondering if today is going to be too hot for puffy jackets or too cold for just a sweater. So let’s get you prepared to transition your wardrobe from cold days to warmer weather! Fortunately for you, we’re here to make it an easy changeover with little adjustments here and there. Here are effortless ways you can make your wardrobe ready for the days ahead!
Keep some of your winter pieces
Hold up! Don’t put away all your winter pieces just yet. There are a few pieces you can still put to stylish use this season. The classic trench coat, cardigans, and leather jackets are great additions to your transition wardrobe. The key is to mix and match these winter essentials with light and breezy must-haves. Keep the look balanced for effortless styling.
Give that trench coat the spring treatment by pairing it with a linen top, white wide leg pants, and booties. Your black leather biker jacket also works wonders with a floral dress or a set of cropped bustier top and flowy tiered skirt. Wear it with white sneakers to complete the look!

Go easy on the layers
The key to any transitional wardrobe is layering well. The day may start with frigid weather and be warm and sunny by lunchtime so you want to be able to peel off your clothes throughout the day. Put on a light layer such as a cardigan or a lightweight blazer. You can out away your heavy jackets in the back of your closet but keep the light toppers for easy styling.
An oversized blazer is great for weekdays at the office or brunch with the ladies. Put it over a simple cropped top and wide-legged pants for that cool girl look. Wear a cardigan for more casual settings or for a quick run to the store! Pair these looks with either a floral top or a satin camisole. These looks will get you through most of the season’s “is it too cold or too hot” days! Finally, put on a pair of wide leg pants in cotton for easier movements that will keep you comfy.
Wear bright and light colors
Now that you know how to layer and utilize your winter arsenal, it’s time to find the right colors to wear. Whether you go for a head-turning shade or pick pastels and neutrals, don’t forget to add florals to your look! Bloom like the season all around you. Not a fan of prints? That’s okay because bright hues can already make your look 100% more spring-like!
Silk is one of the easiest materials to wear this season. In a blush hue and a wrap dress style, you’re already halfway to becoming the best dressed woman in the room. Just as feminine but more appropriate for a stroll in the park or a picnic with friends is a pink floral dress that will make you feel like a cherry blossom! You can also try a long sleeve midi dress in a fresh green shade that will definitely keep you warm and chic. Light blues are also in this season. With tiny floral prints, a button-down dress will make you feel like you’ve come straight out of a romance novel. Finally, steal everybody’s attention with a chartreuse sheath that will make evening cocktails a lot more vibrant.
Put on the hoops
Don’t ever underestimate the power of a good pair of earrings. This season, it’s time to get rid of the turtlenecks and the jackets, put your hair up in a messy bun and and let these pieces highlight your exposed neck. The best part? They’re perfect for both formal and casual settings!
Need an everyday pair to get you through the morning rush? A simple paid of open hoop earrings are great for days in the office. For more fun weekends, don’t be afraid to wear something a little more playful. Put on a pair with patterns or prints! Need a little bit of color? A mix of gold and acrylic design works wonders for simpler outfits. Impress your spring fling on your next date night by wearing double layered huggie hoop earrings! You can also give the classic hoops a twist (literally) with twisted open hoop earrings!
