There’s no need to stash away your winter clothes until the next frost comes along. Reuse your cozy attire with these helpful tips on how to transition your winter wardrobe for spring.
Pair over-the-knee boots with skirts or dresses.
This is a great way to add visual interest to a spring outfit without looking out of place! Pair a bold, over-the-knee boot with a flirty spring dress—short, long, ruffled, it’s up to you. Add a beautiful Italian leather purse, and you are ready for a dinner date. You’ll look effortlessly chic and keep your legs warm in the unpredictable spring climate.
Those thick sweaters that used to keep you warm next to the fire can be layered with flowy chiffon skirts for a trendy twist. The contrast between a chunky winter sweater and a soft, voluminous skirt perfectly complements the weather while also looking very couture.
Use blazers as lightweight jackets.
In the cold, depressing winter, lots of people layer multiple lightweight jackets as an alternative to wearing a heavy coat. Come spring, you can decompress by reusing these jackets or boyfriend blazers as individual pieces in your outfits. As the weather warms up, pair a graphic tee with a simple jacket and heels for a sophisticated look.
Trench coats are always in.
Is it a winter necessity, or a spring accessory? Well, why not both? If the weather is warm and your luxurious trench coat is just begging to be worn, throw it over a simple t-shirt and jeans and head out on the town! Trench coats are by their very nature the perfect transition piece because they’re often made from a thin, breathable fabric that adds warmth without being unnecessarily heavy.
Mix your fabrics!
A great move this spring is to incorporate heavier fabrics like wool, denim, fleece, or tweed with lighter fabrics. Wear a dense, long scarf with a light sweater, a heavy denim jacket with a delicate skirt or a soft, suede skirt with a wool top. Mixing your fabrics is a great way to get the most out of your winter wardrobe without sacrificing style.
