Now that March is almost upon us, I think it’s important to talk how how to transition your wardrobe from winter to spring. Spring time is honestly one of my favorite seasons of the year. The days get longer, you can wear less clothing (no more heavy jackets!), cute shoes are back (goodbye UGGS!), and it’s finally time to get out of that neutral clothing rut and incorporate some color into your wardrobe!
This knit sweater I got last year from H&M is such an amazing dupe for this expensive knit sweater by Ganni (retails $475). I love how soft and cozy it is but with the reasonable price tag! Another reason I love it is because it just screams “spring!” Knits are one of my favorite pieces to keep in my closet from winter, to spring and then to fall because it transitions so easily from each season.
5 Tips to Transitioning Your Wardrobe from Winter to Spring
1. Lightweight Knits
Pair a lightweight knit with a simple pair of jeans or try wearing it a new way instead with a maxi skirt or culottes!
2. Pair OTK Boots with Dresses
I love the contrast of pairing over-the-knee (OTK) boots with a short dress. Essentially the OTK boots are re-placing your leggings/tights. It’s finally time to show some skin and let those legs feel the warmth of the sun!
3. Utilize Trench Coats
Layering is the name of the game especially in the springtime when the weather can be so unpredictable! Utilize trench coats and light cardigans to elevate your looks. You can also use these pieces as the “statement” piece of your outfit so have fun with it!
4. Make a Statement with Shoes
Shoes are a fun way to bring some color into your life and to show your personality. For spring, I suggest investing in an open-toe bootie (time to show off that pedicure!) or a fun pair of flats.
5. Re-Wear Winter Friendly Staples.
Find new ways to pair fresh spring pieces with winter-friendly staples as the weather during the spring can be quite unpredictable. I always like to opt for layers or a thicker material (such as a knit sweater) and then something fun (how I paired this look with a knit, jeans, and flats!). It’s like shopping in your own closet!
