Over the last few days spring has slowly started to appear. The weather is getting slightly warmer, it’s not quite at the summer dress stage yet but we’ll have to be patient, march is only a matter of days away and everyone is starting to think about their summer plans. However, one of my favourite things about the winter to spring transition is clothing. You’re finally able to put away those thick winter knits, for something a bit lighter and so much brighter; ready for the warmer months. So, I’m sharing 7 ways that you can transition your winter look into spring.
- Play with pattern and colour- Winter is all about those deep colours and textures, however as you move into spring you can experiment a lot more with brighter colours and patterns. I’m in love with this insect pattern sheer shirt, for spring, just because of the mixtures of the bright colours and its not a traditional floral or stripe print.
- Lot’s of light layers- Winter is all about one of two really thick layers, but for spring it’s a lot more about a few light layers. Whether it’s a shirt, jumper and then a mac, or a tee shirt and a cami over the top; the key is to look stylish whilst still keeping super warm.
- Add a hat- I really love a good hat, and spring is the perfect time to wear them. It’s not too cold and windy, so that it instantly blows off your head, but you can still add something season appropriate to your outfit. Whether it’s a fedora, bobble hat or a baseball cap; spring is the season to add it to your look.
- Nude tights are your best friend- Black tights are way too harsh for spring, however it’s still really cold and you need something to keep you warm on those chilly spring mornings. So, a good pair of matte nude tights will be your best friend, because it looks just like your own legs, but super airbrushed and they will go with any seasonal outfit.
- Pop a polo neck under your dress- When it’s coming into spring, I’m dreaming of the days when I can just pop a dress on and head out the door. However, it’s not quite warm enough for that yet, but you can still make your summer dresses work in the spring by popping a co-ordinating polo neck underneath. This could be a cream one under a floral shift dress or even a black one under a maxi dress, it’s completely up to you.
- Light jackets- A light jacket is one of the best ways off keeping warm during this transition into spring. You can start to stay goodbye to those thick winter coats in favour for something much lighter. My favourite’s have to be a really good mac, they’re super chic and make any outfit look effortlessly stylish, or a leather jacket, as they go with every outfit and you will find yourself wearing it endlessly.
- Boots are still a key element of your look- Just because spring is coming doesn’t mean that all the boots in your wardrobe have become redundant, as you can still incorporate them into your spring look. My favourite way to do this is to pair them with dresses or invest in a lighter coloured pair that you can wear all your round.
