Spring is arguably the loveliest time of the year – flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and we ladies are tentatively peeling off the mountains of layers we had been shrouding ourselves with since October. It’s not always practical to buy a new wardrobe every time the seasons change, but have you ever wondered if it’s possible to mix your favorite winter trends with new spring essentials? We plan to show you the many options you have at your disposal for mixing your tried-and-true winter pieces into a Spring ensemble.
Leather Skirt + Sleeveless Blouse : Instead of wearing turtlenecks and wool tights with a leather skirt, opt for a breezy sleeveless blouse instead. The proportions of both pieces are supremely flattering, and this combination can be both office and weekend-ready just by changing up your shoes.
Spring Recommendation: Mother of Pearl Umiko blouse $388
Sequin Jacket + Crop Jeans Don’t put that fantastic jacket you got for all the holiday parties this December into storage, but brighten up your look with a pair of cropped jeans. The length of the jeans keeps the jacket from feeling too heavy, and paired with a striped t-shirt and some embellished flats, this look will take you everywhere.
Spring Recommendation: Current/Elliott jeans $248
Winter White Sweater + Skater Skirt : Using your trusty white fisherman’s sweater as a starting point, indulge your playful side with a skater skirt for Spring. The silhouette is universally flattering, and you can make it more or less formal by adding flat boots, a wide-brimmed hat, or colorful jewelry.
Spring Recommendation: Topshop skirt $56
Peep-toe Booties + Denim Jacket : For all you urban warriors out there, you don’t have to give up your sturdy ankle boots just because the sun’s out. Wear a floral sundress, and anchor the look with a denim or army green jacket on top; you’ll be ready for anything, even the occasional Spring shower.
Spring Recommendations: Madewell X Elizabeth and James jacket $295
