Winter-Spring Transition

I think everyone can agree that this winter has been a little crazy, and for a lot of us, it seems to be ending pretty quickly! I don't know about y'all but my city has had temperatures as high as the 80s in the past few weeks. With this generally warming weather trend, it can be hard to figure out what to wear. I always feel like I come out on the other end of winter, check the spring temps in the 70s, and think, "What does 70* feel like?"

To get myself back in the right headspace to start dressing for warmer weather, I rounded up a few great transitional outfits and pieces to inspire me on those days when it's not exactly cold but not exactly warm, either. Here are some of my favorites:

How cool and sophisticated does this look? I love the combination of a blazer with tweed shorts. This would be perfect with ankle booties or heels, and you could even wear tights under the shorts if it's a little cooler outside. I could totally see someone wearing this to work and then out for drinks with friends after!

Like the last look, this one is super sophisticated. The plaid skirt and sweater look pretty wintery but the bare legs and light fabric of the sweater are decidedly more spring. Wear a blazer or jacket over the sweater or even just keep the sleeves rolled down if it's a more wintery day. Pair with conservative heels or boots.

This transitional look is so casual yet chic and very versatile. I love pairing a mid-weight sweater with an airy skirt for this awkward time of the fashion year and this color combo is perfectly neutral for either season.

This is kind of the more casual version of the first look. Instead of chic it's a little comfier, with brighter colors and more florals. Pair this look with cute, neutral sneakers and a scarf for chillier mornings and evenings.

I never thought I'd say that a sweater tied around your waist could look chic, but here we are. This all-neutral look is great for work or for play and you can just pop a jacket (either matching or in a statement color) on for those nights when a quick stop for drinks turns into an all-night event.

How perfectly colorblocked is this? I love how the clutch and the top were just made for each other. The top is sleeveless but the pants and a pair of boots could cozy it up a little. Alternatively, you could switch it up with a blazer and heels. This is such a good base outfit to style any way you want.

Are you feeling inspired yer? Me too! Maybe this awkward time of the year isn't so bad after all. What do you like to wear when you're transitioning your wardrobe from one season to the next? Let us know in the comments!
