Transitioning your wardrobe from winter to spring
Mar 31, 2023
Spring is just around the corner. This means warmer days, longer hours of daylight, and more variety in outfits. It also means it's time to start thinking about transitioning your wardrobe from winter to spring. It can be tricky to know what to wear during this period (especially with the unpredictable UK weather - think four seasons in one day), but we’ve got you covered with some handy transition tips - that aren’t just focused on florals. Spring fashion just got a makeover.Layering is key
The weather can be difficult to judge during the spring, with temperatures ranging from freezing cold to unseasonably warm. The first glimpse of sunshine might have you rushing to your wardrobe for last season’s mini co-ord, but don’t be fooled. Layering is key to ensure that you can adjust your outfit according to the weather. Start with a base layer, such as a t-shirt or vest top, and then add an oversized sweatshirt or hoodie. You can then add a jacket or coat if it's still cold outside. This will allow you to easily remove layers if the temperature increases throughout the day. Perfect for keeping your style in check, without sacrificing yourself to the elements. Spring outfits need layers to work well and give you options as the weather gets warmer.Swap out heavy fabrics for lighter ones
During the winter, it's common to wear heavy fabrics and items, such as wool and puffer jackets. However, as the weather gets warmer, it's time to swap out those heavy fabrics for lighter ones. Opt for fabrics that are lightweight and breathable; anything that will keep you warm, but also gives you the option to remove items. This will help you stay cool and comfortable during the warmer days of spring. Fingers crossed we actually get some.Invest in a lightweight jacket
A carpenter jacket is the perfect transitional piece for spring. It's lightweight, but still provides enough coverage to keep you warm on cooler days. Opt for a classic beige or black carpenter jacket that can be worn with almost anything. This is also a key piece for 2023, offering something timeless and perfectly on-trend.
Other lightweight options include the classic denim jacket. Keep this fresh by going oversized or adding a repeat print. A bomber jacket also offers an easy transitional piece. With a variety of colours and fabrics, it’s a truly versatile option. Wear placed over your shoulders for a unique look.Embrace neutral colours
Spring is all about pastel colours such as blush pink, baby blue, and lavender. But neutral colours are still in and a huge trend for 2023. Embrace these colours and incorporate them into your wardrobe. You can add a pop of colour with a pastel-coloured oversized sweater, but keeping the majority of your spring wardrobe neutral means you can easily mix and match pieces.Don't forget about your footwear
During the winter, boots and other heavy footwear are in. However, as the weather gets warmer, it's time to switch to lighter footwear such as trainers, hi-tops, and canvas shoes. Opt for your kicks in neutral colours such as black, beige, and white, as they will go with almost anything in your wardrobe.Update your accessories
Accessories are a great way to update your wardrobe without breaking the bank. Swap out your winter accessories for lighter options, such as caps or even beanies. Add some statement jewellery, like oversized earrings or a bold necklace, to really elevate your outfit. And don’t forget, spring means sunny spells, so make sure your sunglass collection is up to date and ready to wear. We’re thinking oversized and dark, or tiny and multi-coloured, whatever your style.
