Spring’s approaching shortly and while the weather might not reflect the changing season, it doesn’t mean your wardrobe can’t! It’s time to tuck away your dark hues, cable knit sweaters, and heavy scarves – but don’t pack everything away just yet. Transitioning your wardrobe from winter to spring can be tricky. Unlike summer to fall, you’re looking to shed layers rather than add them. However, with a little bit of creativity (and maybe a few bucks), you can easily flip your closet in preparation for the warm weather without breaking the bank.
Accessorize with brights
One way to “spring-ify” your outfit is to add a bright pop of color. Whether its baby blue tights, a fun pink bracelet, a yellow scarf, or a lavender pair of skinny jeans, a little color never hurt anyone. By adding just one piece with some color, you can keep on rocking some of your darker winter wear without looking like it’s the middle of January.
Invest in a few spring pieces
Retailers are rolling out the spring stuff already so why not add to your wardrobe and invest in a few key pieces? Choose a cute new dress or flowy blouse and find ways to wear it now. Choose a cute dress with a floral print and pair it with black tights, ankle booties, and a fall jacket – perfect for the winter to spring transition.
Use jewelry to your advantage
The great thing about jewelry is that it’s an easy, cheap way to completely change an entire outfit. For example, a yellow statement necklace would help brighten up a darker winter outfit. A pair of turquoise earrings paired with a white blouse and dark wash skinny jeans would take your look from winter to spring in an instant. The possibilities are endless!
Swap out the shoes
The number one style staple this winter were tall riding boots. While we’re all for a good tall boot, now might be a good time to retire them until next winter if you’re looking to transition your wardrobe. Swap out your boots for some colorful boat shoes or loafers. Colorful, printed flats are also in this season and are perfect for bringing your winter look to spring.
