It’s been a long winter, but it’s just about time to ditch our parkas and gloves. With sunshine just around the corner, it’s time to start transitioning your wardrobe from warm and cozy to bright and springy. For cute, classy outfits that are right on trend with what’s hot this spring, make sure to grab the following pieces on your next shopping trip:
Bright or Patterned Pants
While it’s not shorts weather quite yet, that doesn’t mean you can’t give your pants a springtime update! Bright-colored skinny jeans in shades of emerald green, ivy and bright blue perfectly complement spring’s blue skies and new plants, and are an easy way to kick up your look. Patterned cropped pants are another easy way to brighten up your outfit and make you stand out.
Flowy Tunics and Blouses
Say goodbye to heavy sweaters and slip into something a little lighter. Long-sleeved tunics and delicate blouses make it simple to transition out of your winter wardrobe and look gorgeous over leggings or skinny jeans. Look for colorful and patterned tops—stripes and animal prints are in this season.
Blazers and Sweater Jackets
You can’t go from winter to spring without a go-to light jacket to grab as you run out the door. Spring is filled with breezy days, which means you need outerwear slightly less heavy than your poufy winter parka. Light blazers and sweater jackets are crucial pieces to pick up this spring; they’ll protect you from any lingering chill but are light enough to keep you comfortable. Color tip: white always looks fresh and classy in the spring.
The best part of spring (besides the sunshine of course!)? Pretty spring dresses! Look for light, airy day dresses perfect for fluttering in a warm spring breeze. Flowy shirt and shift dresses are classic pieces that can easily take you from the office to a night out, and everything in between. Pick patterned dresses to make a statement and keep your shoes and accessories a little more neutral.
Even though we’ve got a little bit of winter left, it’s never too early to start thinking about the upcoming season. Start updating your wardrobe now and you’ll be more than ready to step into spring as stylishly as possible.
