How to transition your back and forth winter/spring weather style….now that’s a long title…but yet it’s so true.
We are officially in the crazy time of year when we play the game of Is It Winter or Spring?
It’s really hard to tell when you have one week where the temperatures are a glorious 65 degrees and by the time you really get to enjoy the fresh air and somewhat warmer weather you tune into to the Today show with news of a winter freeze, storm or arctic something headed our way.
Those crazy winter words are not easy for us southerners and it’s really hard on our fashion. Just when we start packing up our winter gear and taking in all that spring has to offer…the flowers, birds, freshness of the air and even the little bit of pollen floating in the air then bam, here comes the cold.
So with that said, don’t pack up your winter wear just yet.
Here are some tips on how to save money and transition both your winter and spring styles without the stress of going in and out of storage to grab what you thought you might not need until next year.
Pops of Color
This is simple but can really transition your wardrobe throughout the season. It’s a great way to get over the winter blues too.
Don’t Pack Up Your Scarves
Keep scarves on hand these can consist of spring and winter material.
Scarves can change up your simple style as well as give you plenty of warmth when needed. They are also easy to tuck away in your closet.
Long Cardigans or Light Sweaters
I love both of these items for those complicated weather days.
You can layer them with extra layers depending on how cold it is outside and it’s easy to shed this extra layer if it warms up during the day.
Invest in One Neutral Jacket
I love a cream color jacket or gray color tones, but if you prefer black that is fine too. It’s ok to pack away the rest of your jackets just keep one that is easy accessible and a go to color hanging in your closet.
Casual Gym Attire
This can consist of jackets, long gym pants gloves and tops. We can’t forget those days we workout or are running around with the kids.
We do have days in the spring where winter pops up on us on these oh so casual times.
We sometimes tuck away our closed toe shoes for the winter.
Well don’t, unless your shoe is a winter material keep those flats out all year long.
Keep a pair of boots on hand all year long. Since we are in the south a fun pair of cowboy boots can be transitional and stylish throughout each season…even summer.
I also love my brown ankle boots. I will keep those and wear them with my dresses during the spring.
Jeans or Jeggings
I love my jeans simply for this reason.
I know I can pull them out and layer them in the cold winter months and then transition them into the spring and summer with my spring and summer style.
The same goes for straight leg jeans, but put a little twist on it, roll the bottom of the pants up and pair with my favorite summer shoe or heel for the spring and summer.
You can always find a pant that works into your work wear too. Ann Taylor or Ann Taylor Loft has great transitional selections when it comes to pants.
I love my t-shirts. You can have fun with your style when it comes to simple tees. Layering them with your favorite accessories or layers can change your style up when it comes to your seasonal wardrobe.
I probably have at least 10 different type of T-shirts that I wear all year long hanging in my closet.
Don’t fret over the constant change in the weather this time of the year. Enjoy it, because we all know that our weather changes pretty quickly.
Before you know it we are shedding as many layers as we can just to stay cool during those hot summer months.
Here is my pop of color with my winter style.
- Black and white blouse from Chelsea and Violet – $9.99 (Dillard’s outlet store)
- Lauren Conrad orange blazer (Kohl’s) I bought two years ago
I was happy it was warm!
