We might still be in the midst of a polar vortex but spring 2019 is just around the corner. Spring fashion is lighter and brighter but you’ll still need some of your winter items to remain warm and comfortable. Here’s how to transition from cold to warm while still looking your best!
Rethink How You Layer
Layering makes it easy for you to wear many of your dresses and jumpsuits year-round. As spring approaches just ease up on the heavy layers a bit. Instead of wearing tights, booties, and a sweater or blazer over a medium-weight dress—wear a scarf and heels. Or wear a classic tank or camisole under your cardigan instead of a blouse. Spring is also the time to pull out some of your lighter weight dresses and layer long sleeves underneath. A crew neck under a lightweight or spaghetti strap dress looks polished and on-trend.
Lighten And Brighten
No matter the trends, spring is the time of year to reintroduce some of the lighter colored neutrals back into the mix. This includes your camel trench coat or going for the current trend in head to toe monochrome in cream, white or light grey. As the weather continues to warm up lighten and brighten all your accessories and invest in a few items in this season’s “it” color—lavender!
Mix And Match Trendy Items With Your Wardrobe Staples
Invest in a few new separates that you can mix and match with your year-round wardrobe staples. For example, a one-shoulder polka dot top that you can wear with your neutral skirts, slacks, or your favorite jeans. Bold patterns and prints are popular this spring but there’s no need to go head to toe, so invest in a top or bottom that you can mix and match. Ruffles are back, and can be found on blouses, dresses, sweaters and rompers.
Winter Prairie Will Rollover
Prairie-inspired fashion was hot for fall and winter and many of your items can rollover into spring. Most prairie dresses are lightweight and will transition easily. Look for unique ways to rethink how you wear your prairie blouses with your spring wardrobe, like wearing a prairie top with your mini shorts.
Last but not least, pull out last year’s spring items to donate what you no longer want—and mix in what you can still can.
