9 Pieces From Your Spring Wardrobe to Start Wearing Now
It may not feel like it, but spring is just around the corner. With temperatures dipping up and down from week to week, it can be hard to dress for the weather. We’re showing you how to keep warm while getting a hard start on spring with the top pieces from your warm-weather wardrobe that you can start wearing now.
Scrappy camisolesIn transitional weather, layers are going to be your best friend. So don’t be afraid to break in those slinky camis a few weeks early!
A think knit cardigan overtop of a strappy cami is a great way to blend pieces between seasons, without compromising the need to stay warm. You can also layer your slinky camis overtop of t-shirts and knits for a very on-trend look.
Denim jacketEveryone’s favourite spring/summer jacket is back on trend again this season, and who can argue with a classic?
Get back into the swing of spring style by wearing your denim jacket button up under a warmer overcoat, or layering something like a midi-length sweater dress underneath to stay warm – and chic – as you wait on warmer weather.
BlazersA work staple year-round, most of us have at least one “fun” blazer in our wardrobe that’s reserved for more casual menswear-inspired ensembles.
Get that jacket back in rotation by layering it over warmer pieces and looping an oversized blanket scarf around your neck to keep the look in-season – and on-trend.
Mini skirtsMini skirts in the snow? This can be a major winter faux-pas, but for those crisp sunny days that are bordering on early spring, you may just want to break one in early.
Here’s where stockings are your best friend: pair your mini with a nice semi-sheer or opaque pair and booties for that model-off-duty look.
Scrappy sandalsAll those pretty pumps are just waiting for their moment, stacked at the back of your closet during the winter months – why not give them a little extra life as you transition into the spring season?
We suggest investing in a few pairs of pretty patterned ankle socks to wear with your strappy sandals until the temperature heats up. This look is not only geek-chic adorable, it’s also a major trend for accessorizing your pumps this year!
OverallsOveralls aren’t just for kids anymore. The dungaree style is having a moment as designers across the board are offering updated takes on the classic jumpsuit-style.
Take a cue from style bloggers who’ve been seen rocking their overalls all winter by pairing them with turtlenecks and booties. Once the temperatures start to rise, you can ditch the thick knits and booties for cute flats and strappy tanks and tees!
CulottesThese cropped wide-leg trousers in a range of colours, prints and fabrics are going to be huge this season, and are already available in almost every store.
Looking to wear yours now, but worried about those chilly winds on your bare ankles? Pair these pants with high-cut booties for a trendy and transitional style.
Crop topsSo it might not be midriff-baring season yet (is it ever, really?) but odds are you’ve got some adorable crop-top styles just waiting in the wings to be paired with some high waisted denim for a sunny day sometime this spring.
We suggest layering your crops over some longer button-down style dress shirts or knit tees for a look that’s weather-appropriate, without the belly-baring reveal.
Summer dressesDon’t ignore those pretty summer dresses calling to you from the back of your closet! Give them new life in the colder months by incorporating them into your transitional style pre-spring.
Sure, you can pair your dresses with stockings for an easy cold-weather fix, but why not try something different? Add a little more edge to those pretty pieces by wearing your dresses over leather leggings in more of a tunic-style instead. And don’t forget, those floaty mini dresses can do double duty as tops when tucked into jeans or trousers!
