While spring is officially here, we have been experiencing the up and down temperatures that are pretty common for this time of year in North Carolina. In my opinion, that makes it an awkward time of year to get dressed because while I’m ready to go all out with spring attire, I am still keeping some of my lightweight winter items close by.
I have been over wearing layers for a while now so I am trying to find ways to brighten up my wardrobe to welcome spring and get out of the winter blues. We are spending some time this month in Buffalo visiting David’s family and friends, so I will definitely be using these tips for packing since they just got some snow again last week. Here are 3 tips to transitioning your wardrobe from winter to spring.
3 Tips for Transitioning your Wardrobe from Winter to Spring
1) Layer with Spring Colors
A few years ago, I picked up a blush faux leather jacket to take with me on a trip to Chicago and it has been one of my favorite layering pieces for spring ever since. A faux leather jacket in a lighter color is a great option for transitioning to spring when it is still chilly outside.
2) Mix Up Textures
I went to an event a couple of weeks ago when it was warmer in the afternoon but the temperature dropped that evening. So, I paired my white denim with a knit tunic sweater in a brighter color, and snakeskin booties, which are a closet staple of mine. I’ll also pair a light weight sweater dress with my white faux leather booties. Another option is wearing my favorite hat with a jacket, denim, and open toe faux leather wedges. Don’t be scared to mix it up to find what works. Bonus, it’s a great way to shop your closet!
3) White Denim for Spring Weather
I am not one to subscribe to fashion rules, so I believe in wearing white jeans year round. Break out your white jeans and pair them with your favorite sweaters and booties earlier in the season. Another way I like to wear my white jeans are paired with a chambray long-sleeve shirt and open-toe wedges.
