When You Want a Pop of Spring Color, but It's Still Cold Outside...
Sometimes dressing in a way that feels seasonally appropriate can be a bit overwhelming. By the time March arrives, many of us are READY for color, for white jeans, for SPRING looks... but when it's cold outside, that can feel really hard to pull off. Try these ideas to help you merge your winter pieces into the spring months when the frost is still on the grass when you head out the door.
When you need a long sleeve blouse and trousers for the office, but you want to feel a bit springy, try adding a pop of color with a bright cardigan. This simple extra piece takes this outfit from cute to WOW, but still gives us the warmth we need to fight off the chill in the air.
In this outfit, we've kept so many elements of winter... our dark jeans, our turtleneck, our loafers... and even our corduroy; but our corduroy jacket is a bright mustard color that gives this outfit a wow factor that takes us far away from the winter blues.
We ADORE our white jeans!!! And a classic blue stripe button up also screams spring; but, we are still feeling cozy and warm by adding this gorgeous orange sweater. This same sweater was precious with a flannel during the fall months, but is totally transformed for spring with a few changes.
Again, white jeans are our favorite! Here, we are pairing them with some peep toe booties (with a bright spring pedi) and a great neutral, camel sweater. This is a classic look that will easily take you from day to night! Both of these pieces are true work horses as they can transition easily to create vastly different outfits. (Think white jeans, tanks, and sneakers; think sweater, dark jeans, and riding boots)...
Every piece in your closet should be able to work in at least two or three different ways. Make your clothes work for you. All you need is a little creativity! We hope these ideas help you come up with some clever ways to stay warm, but still feel like spring - all while finding new ways to shop your own closet!
