The months in between winter and spring are always very awkward and so unpredictable. One day it’s cold, then it’s hot, and the next day it’s raining. Come on mother nature make up your mind girl. Transitioning from winter to spring is never easy and figuring out what to wear is no simple task. Transitioning through seasons can be a little tricky in New York, unless you have a massive closet you most likely break your clothes into seasons and put the rest in storage. Right now my closet is full with fall and winter clothes, however it is going to be gorgeous all week and I may start to do a slow transition.
When transitioning through seasons I recommend breaking up your wardrobe by temperature. I’m sure you’re asking yourself…what does that even mean? It means you balance the temp by either exposing your arms or legs but not both until the weather is consistently warm. I recommend that you wear a pair of jeans and a tank top or a skirt/shorts with a long sleeve shirt. Always bring a cardigan or blazer so if the temps drop you can keep warm. You can’t go wrong with a jean jacket either. I feel like I’m living in mine these days.
Last weekend was the first warm day we’ve seen all year. I knew I wanted to bust out the florals and wear a skirt to brunch. I wore this fun high slit wrap skirt with a turtle necklace tank topped off with a jean jacket. Luckily jean jackets never go out of style and go with everything.
Below are 5 outfit combos to help you transition from winter to spring.
ARMY JACKET AND T-SHIRT DRESS
Don’t pack up your army jacket just yet. That is a classic piece that will last your year round. A light striped cotton dress, army jacket, and sneakers will keep you cute, comfy, and stylish in any weather.
WHITE YEAR ROUND
I’ve never really bought into the whole “no white after Labor Day” thing. A pair of white skinny jeans, a loose flowy blouse, and vibrant handbag scream ready for spring!
FLORAL DRESSES AND SKIRTS
Florals were popular this fall and perfect to roll into spring. Grab your floral dress, yes the one you wore with a killer pair of over the knee boots and throw on a fun boater hat and comfy white kicks. If you are itching to break out the maxi dress simply throw a jean jacket over it to protect you from a light breeze.
BLOUSES WITH SHORTS
A long sleeve blouse and shorts always work well. Always bring a cardigan, jacket, or blazer with you for when it cools down at night. Even if your legs get cold your upper body will stay warm.
OFF THE SHOULDER
Lastly, one trend that has spring written all over it is off the shoulder trend. Weather you wear an OTS shirt with ripped skinnies or shorts it’s the best way to celebrate springtime.
It is going to be 80 degrees tomorrow in NYC and I am looking forward to checking out the new outdoor cafes on the Hudson River. Sitting outside and sipping wino sounds like the perfect way to celebrate spring. When planning your warm days ahead hopefully these 5 outfit combos will help you transition from winter until spring!
