The weather outside may still be chilly, but here are some tips to welcome spring into your wardrobe.
Layer a sweater over a lightweight skirt. Don’t put your sweaters away just yet — think of them in a different way. Instead of pairing your favorite chunky sweater with jeans or tights, try it over a skirt you normally think of as a spring item. This is a great way to transition into a new season.
Wear a blazer as a jacket. Instead of a parka or a puffy jacket, try a blazer as a classic and easy transitional layering piece. A boyfriend style over a graphic T-shirt can give you a funky but sophisticated look.
Start to lighten up your denim! Slowly brighten your wardrobe by choosing lighter denim washes. Don’t think of just your jeans — a lighter wash denim jacket also can move your wardrobe toward the season ahead.
Consider an open-toe bootie or sandal. If there is ever a perfect time to show off your recent pedicure, do it now! Many summer sandals now come with a shearling lining for those who like that summer feeling all year long.
Add bold color to your outfit. Don’t be afraid of a sunny yellow or even a bold neon color. Lighten up the classic colors of black and gray of winter with some fun spring palette choices.
Don’t be afraid to try something new. Now is the time to take chances and have fun with your wardrobe. As the days become longer and warmer, head to your favorite boutique or department store and have fun with all of your options. Happy New Season!
