Transitioning to your Spring Wardrobe

Colorblock Dress for Spring - Transitioning to your Spring Wardrobe by popular Washington DC style blogger Alicia Tenise
Yesterday, along much of the Mid-Atlantic, we had glorious weather: It was a whopping 77 degrees, and I was actually a little hot, to be honest!
Sadly, the temps are going back down for the rest of the week, but it looks like spring is coming a bit early this year (knock on wood!) I haven’t switched my closet over from winter to spring yet, so a bit of panic set in when I walked outside yesterday. However, I had to remind myself of this ensemble I wore at NYFW and all of the fun ways you can transition to your spring wardrobe.

4 TIPS TO TRANSITION TO YOUR SPRING WARDROBE

Slowly Add Color Back In
 
If you’ve been following along on Instagram, lately I’ve been rocking sweaters in bold, springy colors such as orange and green. One thing I hate about winter? The drab color palette. I find myself wearing burgundy, grey, black and white over and over again! I’m a big fan of picking up a bright sweater to help make the transition from winter to spring. We all know the weather is super unpredictable this time of year, so it’s important to be prepared for both the warm and cold days ahead. I personally think that yellow and lilac are going to be huge colors this spring based on what I saw at the Spring 2018 NYFW shows and the Atlanta Apparel Market, so shop accordingly!
Pick Up a Bold/Light Colored Coat
 
Tired of pulling out that same black/camel/grey coat over and over again? While you’re transitioning to your spring wardrove, spice up your wardrobe with a lighter color coat or opt for a bold color or print. This way, you’ll still feel like it’s spring outside as we head into March, even if the outside temps don’t agree with you!
Hold Off On The Open-Toed Shoes
I was super tempted to pull out my sandals when it was 77 degrees outside yesterday. However, I stopped myself for a couple of reasons. One, no need to get sick. Two, my feet are definitely *not* ready for spring.
If you have ankle booties, pairing them with your jeans and dresses is a great way to transition between seasons. Also, I’m a huge fan of pairing over the knee boots with floral dresses — it looks chic, and it it’s a great way to rock some of your favorite new sundresses when it’s still a little chilly out!
Mix Winter + Spring Textures
The key to transitioning to ease is mixing winter and spring textures. For example, might opt for a silk floral blouse, but pair it with a pair of suede booties, so you’re not going overboard with spring pieces. Pair a leather jacket with a chiffon dress. It is still February, and we are still in the Mid-Atlantic, so just ease into the new season!
