As the weather erratically transitions, and I mean worse than my emotions when that time of the month hits, from winter to spring many struggle to make their wardrobe follow suit. For some of you transitioning your wardrobe to spring simply means less layers and others, it’s almost like a watching an extreme makeover show, which I mean in the very best way possible.
I get it, the weather is finally warm and you feel like you can shed all the winter blues and welcome spring like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly. I don’t blame you, winter can definitely be stifling to your personal style. There are so many limitations and requirements your clothes must meet due to the cold, snow and other insane forms of precipitation that fall from the sky. But with the arrival of spring a whole new set of challenges arise. From puddle littered sidewalks to the temperature fluctuations it’s almost like being in Vegas, you have to be ready for anything. So what’s the best way to transition your wardrobe into spring? The obvious blogger answers, that I’m sure you’ve already read elsewhere, are: update your accessories, add color, pretty much anything to do with buying something new. But buying new clothes isn’t the money savvy way to make what you already have work for the new season. So here are some actual tips to transition your wardrobe to spring:
- Keep rocking your “winter” friendly shoes. This may seem common sense but I cannot stress the importance of taking into account your environment. Not all of us live in places with glamorous weather like Cali and Florida so keep on wearing shoes that can brave the potential slush or rainy day. Some things you should probably avoid: suede, peep toes and sandals, unless you’re on the beach.
- Mix up your lengths. Switch out blazers for your sleeveless options, like vests, to layer over your blouses and thin knits. Or try swapping your classic trousers for ankle grazers and even skirts or culottes as the weather warms. Keep your body shape mind here, don’t make your body look weirdly short by wearing hemlines that land in awkward place.
- Use neutrals to lighten your look for spring. Colors and prints aren’t for everyone, it can seem overwhelming to try and wear it if it’s not your forte Don’t already own something colorful? Well there’s no need to go out and waste your money on something, be realistic if you really wanted color, you would have found a way to put it in your wardrobe. If colors aren’t your thing rock white, nude or light grey instead to lighten up your look for spring without adding color. See how the colors in your outfit can effect your mood.
The last thing to keep in mind as you transition into spring is what clothes make you feel amazing. Like the idea of a new start each day, the beginning of spring is a great time to refine your style and decipher what your clothes are telling you. Don’t settle for okay or even good, we do that with enough things in our lives. Really listen to how each article of clothing makes you feel to create an overall outfit that has you ready to take on the world like the boss you are.
