How to Transform Your Winter Wardrobe to Spring

April 14, 2015

Goodbye sweaters, riding boots and parkas. Hello to sun dresses, summer shades and sandals! Spring is here, and it’s time to transform your wardrobe for the new season. If you’re wondering what you can do to easily bridge the gap from the winter blues to the upcoming warmer weather, consider these 4 tips. 

  1. Move It Out

    If you’re not going to wear it this season, pack it away or move it to the back of your closet. As you’re searching for the cutest outfit to wear on a spring date, don’t let your bulky winter sweaters block your view of the smaller tank top you want to wear.

    This is also the perfect time to donate or throw away anything you know you won’t wear again. Those jeans that have seen better days or that top with the coffee stain? They need to go. You’ll appreciate the extra space in your closet — and it’s also the perfect excuse to go shopping!

  2. Pale Yellow Bow Back DressAdd Some Color

    Spring is the time of year when everyone should experiment with color. Even if your go-to colors are typically in the gray or neutral families, use the new season to change it up a bit. Snag a tank or an accessory item, like a clutch or belt, with a pop of color. These items won’t cost you much, and they’ll complement other items in your spring wardrobe.

    The Pantone Fashion Color Report for this spring says the following colors are hot this season:
      • Aquamarine
      • Scuba blue
      • Classic blue
      • Glacier gray
      • Marsala
      • Custard
      • Tangerine
      • Strawberry ice
      • Toasted almond
  1. Remember the Transition

    Just because the calendar says it’s officially spring doesn’t mean it will always feel that way. It might be 30 degrees in the morning and 70 by midafternoon, making it hard to plan outfits.

    Remember to keep a few cardigans handy, as well as other garments that layer well. Keep your lighter scarves, blazers and leggings easily accessible throughout the beginning of the spring season.


  1. Blue Maxi DressChoose a Maxi Dress Instead

    Maxi dresses always work for the spring, and this year is no different. The versatile maxi dress can be dressed up with a pair of wedges or be super casual with a pair of flip-flops. Be sure to step out in a maxi that’s appropriate for your body type. For example, if you’re short and petite, a maxi dress with adjustable straps might help you get the dress to the best length for your figure.


Have Fun


Regardless of the current state of your closet, treat yourself with time to enjoy the season. Whether your goal is to add a few new pieces this spring, or splurge on a complete style overhaul, choose pieces that make you feel great. Clothing that highlights your fine points will give you a boost of confidence. Freshen your look this season and use these spring tips to transition your wardrobe!
