Transitioning Your Wardrobe From Winter to Spring With Basics

Transitioning Your Wardrobe From Winter to Spring With Basics

It’s that time of year:  Seasonal wardrobe transition.  Ugh!   Leaving the house in the morning, it’s downright cold.  By lunchtime, the temperature has risen and we’re way overdressed.

Here are a few tips to make the seasonal switch a little smoother:

  1. Start getting your boot feet into sandal shape. Who doesn’t love THAT pair of boots?  We’ve been wearing them for months.  They go with everything from skinnies to skirts and tights.  But now they’re causing swamp feet because it’s just too warm outside.  But it’s not yet warm enough for the sandals, especially in the morning.  Make the switch to flats.  Flats are perfect when paired with your skinnies and skirts.  Your feet can breathe, and you won’t catch cold if you’re caught in a spring shower or temperature dip.
  2. Scarves, scarves and more scarves. Scarves are a lifesaver.  Pick up a few lightweight scarves in bright spring colors.  You can begin wearing your spring tops and dresses, using the scarf as a wrap on chilly mornings, and twisting it into a neck ring or belt as the day becomes warmer.  The pop of fresh color gives some of your favorite pieces from last year new life.
  3. Layers – the cornerstone of seasonal transition. Not ready to put away that soft cardigan or cute jacket, but the thought of wearing it over a tee or top is just too much?  Wearing a super soft cami, like Tucktails, is the answer.  The flat weave won’t ride up or bunch AND it doesn’t get pilly like throw-away camis, so they’re nice enough to wear as a show-off layer.
