The days are getting longer and cherry blossoms are everywhere. In fashion, that’s sign language to replace your heavy winter coat with spring’s freshest offerings. Here are five tips to help you tackle this in-between weather situation, in style.
1. EMBRACE COLOR
It’s hard to break up with the comfort of navy and black, but spring is the time to snap out of a rut. Ethereal pastels, bold color blocking, bright solids.. Nothing wakes up a wardrobe quite like a pop of color.
2. FIND THE PERFECT TRANSITIONAL JACKET
The right layers are key to transitioning to spring. Replace your go-to heavy winter coat with any of the great transitional jackets out there — a classic trench, dependable denim, a versatile army jacket or even a statement spring jacket.
3. SAY YES TO PATTERN
Feminine florals or statement stripes, polkas or gingham, head to toe prints or eclectic print mixing… Embracing pattern is a sure shot way to step into spring in style.
4. RETHINK YOUR DENIM
The new season calls for a new uniform so ditch denim as you knew it. (We are talking to you indigo!) Introduce lighter washes, embroidery and raw hemlines to your denim rotation. Mix it up with a wide leg pant or even the trend du jour culottes.
5. REFRESH YOUR ACCESSORIES
Nothing says I’m ready for spring than a pair of fun, flirty earrings, a pop-hued tassel necklace or a gorgeous fringe handbag. The easiest way to transition to spring is to refresh your accessories. Easy breezy!
