Transition Your Wardrobe: Winter to Spring Outfits

Regardless of what happens on Groundhog Day, the shift from winter to spring is never really clearly defined. The weather might move between freezing temperatures and beautifully sunny days, which can make dressing comfortably a challenge. To help you feel your best through the seasons, we’ve put together this quick guide with a few of our favorite winter to spring transition outfits. Read on for advice on creating the perfect winter to spring outfits! 

Layers We Love

When it comes to curating the best transitional outfits, layering is the name of the game. Piecing an outfit together that consists of layers allows you to add or take away your outside layer in order to stay warm or cool, depending on the weather. This season, one of our favorite layering pieces is the shacket. This piece is a mix between a shirt and a jacket. Layer this overtop of a dress, sweater, or blouse for the perfect layered outfit. Or, opt for a denim jacket or cardigan that effortlessly pairs with pieces in your wardrobe for endless outfit possibilities. Whatever you decide to wear, any winter to spring outfit should feature practical layers.

Choosing the Perfect Materials

Building the ideal winter-to-spring transition outfit is all about selecting ideal fabrics. Heavier winter fabrics, like wool and velvet, don’t need to be stashed away just yet, and it isn’t too early to start breaking out lightweight spring and summer fabrics like cotton and linen. For a beautifully assembled winter to spring outfit, try a mix of fabrics, like pairing a breezy midi dress with a medium-weight jacket. Or throw your outfit composition into reverse with a velvet dress and a lighter-weight scarf.

Transitional Accessories

When choosing shoes, outerwear, and accessories to complement your cross-seasonal wardrobe, opt for items that are neither too cool nor too warm. At the top of your winter to spring outfit, choose a stylish hat, like a beanie or fedora, to protect your body heat. At the base of your outfit, select shoes, like ankle boots, that can be easily paired with light or heavyweight socks depending on the weather. Tights and leggings are also great for breaking out your spring dresses without freezing your legs. And of course, coordinated scarves and gloves can add the ideal finishing touch to your winter-to-spring transition outfit.
