4 Tips to Help You Transition to Your Spring Wardrobe

Spring is officially in the air. With the change in season also comes the wardrobe change, as you start to transition away from the layers and warmth of winter clothing and into the light and airy nature of spring clothing. But generally, it’s not a matter of just packing everything away until next year; instead, there is a transition period for those first few weeks while the temperatures gradually start to warm up. Here are four tips that will help you transition to your spring wardrobe seamlessly and stylishly.

Bring In Pops of Colour

One of the best ways to make your wardrobe appear more spring-like is to give a nod to the current colour trends. This spring is all about bold colours like purple, periwinkle, bright yellow, soft lilac, sky blue, bright green, cerulean, hot pink and pale blue. In other words, colour is trending. Any of these colour pops can be added to your basic, neutral wardrobe staples and will make your outfit appear lively, bright and ready for spring.

Get Rid of the Heavy Boots

This is also the time to update your footwear. It may not be sandal season yet, but there is no longer a need for big, heavy boots. The must-have footwear item for spring is booties once again. These are not just fashionable, but highly versatile in that they work with just about everything. Go ahead and pair your booties with skirts and dresses of all lengths, trousers, capris, denim, leggings, etc. Some of the bootie trends include slouchy style, leather, stacked heel, stiletto heel and kitten heel.

It's All About the Layers

Easily the most important tip for transitioning to your spring wardrobe is to use the layering technique. This will ensure that you're prepared for all types of weather because, let's face it, the temperature can fluctuate quite a bit at this time of year. The difference between fall/winter layering and spring layering, however, is that you want to choose light layers that don't add too much warmth and bulk. Great options include blazers, cardigans, and lightweight jumpers.

Update Your Makeup to Work with the Spring Wardrobe

The final tip is to remember to update your makeup products so they’ll work with your spring wardrobe. You’ll want to be mindful of such things as the colour palette, current spring makeup trends, and even the weather. For example, when purchasing products such as mascara, liquid eyeliner and concealer, you may want to opt for waterproof or water-resistant formulas. Spring is known for its rainy periods, so you don’t want your makeup looking worse for wear.

The change of seasons is both an exciting time but also a bit confusing when it comes to your wardrobe. You’re anxious to embrace the fresh new styles but the weather isn’t necessarily cooperating – yet. These tips will help you transition in a way that makes sense, is gradual and will still allow you to feel stylish and trendy.
