Transitioning From Winter to Spring

UPDATE: You can now watch my live segment on the same subject + spring trends here.

Transitioning from winter to spring is probably the hardest seasonal transition fashion wise. Everybody is eager to dress for spring but it's still cold outside and once it starts to warm up it turns into a slushy mess. I put together three tips to help you make this transition as seamless as possible:

Layers! Transitioning is all about layers. Often during this transitional season, there are cold mornings and afternoons where you can't believe how gorgeous it became. Your options become freezing in the morning or sweating all afternoon. You're going to want to dress in layers in the morning that you can begin to peal off as the day progresses and it warms up.

Slowly start showing some skin. Obviously you're not going to wake up on the first day of spring when it's still rather cold out and start wearing spring dresses with open-toed shoes and no sweater. You have to gradually start showing some skin. Skip the tights under your dress one day. Wear crop pants with your sweater another day instead of long pants. Wear sandals with your pants instead of closed-toed shoes. Slowly start incorporating pieces from your spring wardrobe that expose more skin.

Reach for different accessories. Ditch your big winter boots for your rain boots (you'll probably need them with all the slush and melting snow). I love my Hunter Boots, not only are they iconic but they're so comfortable, come in a wide variety of colors and have unmatched quality. Reach for different jewelry.  This season I'm loving natural stones and druzy as well as pretty soft colors. You can also throw on a different bag, go for a bright color or something covered in fringe which is everywhere this spring!

  1. Thanks for those tips! I find myself wearing the same boring jewelry, so I absolutely need to step out of my box. Oh and as far as layering, blazers are perfect to dress up or down, and they are perfect for work! Happy Thursday!

    1. Thanks Halie! I actually have a great denim blazer that I'll be featuring when I do this segment live tomorrow! You'll have to check back once the video is up!

  2. Changing your accessories is definitely KEY in transitioning. I have certain scarves and accessories that I only wear at certain times of the year and often start my transitional wardrobe with them.

    Here's to hoping for the warm weather! :)

  3. Great picks! I'm usually pretty minimalist when it comes to accessories, but changing it up for the transition into spring is something I will have to keep in mind :)
