From Winter to Spring: 12 Outfits to Bridge the Tricky Transition


Congratulations! You have made it through winter. The days are getting longer and warmer, as spring is approaching. While spring is near, we have to deal with the unpredictable weather that can be either sunny and warm or snowy. Layering is the best way to dress for this time of year. Think dresses with cardigans. Tights under shorts and skirts. And a statement coat underneath your favorite piece. We’ve got a range of options for dressing creatively for “fake” spring weather. They can be tailored to any occasion or aesthetic. Check out these 12 outfits for a winter-to spring transition. They include product suggestions to replicate the look.

Bring a Sweater

Every time you go out for dinner in a stylish slip dress, or another going-out outfit, you find that you forgot to bring a sweater. The right cardigan will go with any outfit. It can also be easily slipped into your bag to showcase your outfit.

Refined grays

We’re going to embrace the monochromatic “groutfit”, before we jump into the pastels of fake spring. Create a gray tailored look using a long coat with a sweater and a mini-skirt. Add some sheer tights to complete the look.

Casual Vibes

Many of us are more likely to go on spontaneous adventures as the snow melts and the warmer days arrive. Combine a Tshirt dress with a leather bomber jacket, sneakers and an oversized leather jacket for a weekend stroll.

If you aren’t going to an “elegant” event, it can be difficult to style long, body-hugging gowns. You can dress them down with sneakers and track jackets for a more sporty look, like Storm Reid did here.

It’s easier to predict the weather when you are out and about. You can keep warm with a sheer turtleneck and knit pants.

Cozy Standby

It’s sometimes best to stick to the basics, particularly when it feels like fake spring. For a simple, stylish outfit, keep a basic uniform consisting of a cardigan with a pleated skirt and Mary Janes.

Don’t be scared to wear fun prints under your coats. A leopard print catsuit looks great with nude boots, a beige jacket and on-trend nude boots.

Layering is important when going out. Taylor Swift has a great style guide. She pairs a short skirt with dark tights, a cropped jacket and a bomber jacket. For a touch of preppy style, add a pair loafer pumps.

Tweed is one of the classic preppy staples that are being brought back by current trends. Try combining a tweed dress with black boots, a headband and fun accessories to create a Blair-Waldorf-like look.

Sweet Night Out

You may be eager to go out again when spring comes. This could mean catching up on friends that you haven’t spoken to in a long time or going out for a date. Wear a long-sleeved white blouse underneath a sleeveless style dress to create a layering look that will take both pieces to a new level.

Athletic clothing isn’t only for the gym. It can also be worn at home. Add a tailored jacket, a gold belt to the waist, a statement bag, and a baseball hat to your favorite bralette, crop top, or comfy pants.

Sequenced Statement

Add a splash of color to winter whites after a long winter of neutrals. A sequined top in purple creates a bold contrast with white and neutral accessories. Wrap a white scarves around your body like a cape to add drama.
