So Spring has sprung, and I’m so glad that the warmer weather is on it’s way.  I’m dreaming of floaty dresses and pastel colours, but I think I’m getting a bit ahead of myself as it’s still pretty cold here! So, I’m not quite ready to put away my coats and winter wardrobe yet!

Read on for a few simple styling tricks to transition from Winter to Spring and to download your free A/W 2017 Trend guide.

Here are a few tips to dress for this season

Adapt your colour scheme

Transition to Spring

 

It’s too cold for me to put away my Winter coats, but a simple change of colours can transform your look from Winter to Spring.  Spring colours, such as zingy orange, bright yellows, pinks and blues, pastels such as blush pink and baby blue and neutrals such as cream and camel will ensure you transition easily into Spring. I changed my usual black coat for a camel coat and if it’s slightly warmer where you are, then you can opt for a jacket.

I chose to still wear jeans, but opted to switch from my usual dark jeans to a lighter blue.

A Winter dress or skirt can easily be worn well into the Spring by adapting your accessories (see below) and by replacing your Winter coat with an edgy suede or leather jacket to update your look.

Adapt your accessories

A simple matter of updating your accessories can also transform your look from Winter to Spring. Here are a few ideas you might like to try.

 

Transition to Spring

 

  • Shoes – change from boots to shoes (or if you’re very brave sandals!)
  • Tights – change your opaque tights for a more sheer version or for skin tone tights
  • Scarves  – swapping your heavy Winter scarf for one of the floaty, lightweight scarves in Spring tones will instantly transform your outfit
  • Bags – similarly change your black, burgundy or brown bags for a lighter and or brighter Spring color – try bright blue, pink, blush, camel…….
  • Statement jewellery – choose chunky eye-catching jewellery in beautiful Spring colours
  • Sunglasses – wear sunglasses and hope the sun will take the hint!
  • Make-up – again opt for Spring techniques and colours such as a natural sun kissed skin, lavender and teal eyeshadow, metallics, and red or glossy lips (there is also a new technique, called ‘draping’, wearing your blush high up on your cheeks and to the sides of your eyes, but personally, I won’t be trying this one!).

Use layers wisely

Layers are the perfect way to adapt to the changing weather  – one minute you’re freezing and then the sun comes out and you’re boiling hot!

See below for a layered look, or wear a chunky sweater over a tank or blouse.

 

 

I chose to take these photos outside in Nature as this felt like the appropriate place for a Spring photoshoot.

    1. Thank you so much, Elle! I think layering is essential when the seasons are changing! xx

  1. I am looking forward to spring but it is still pretty cold here too so I have still been wearing my coat. I could do to get a coat or jacket that is a bit more suitable for spring though as at the moment I only either have thick winter ones or light summer ones and nothing in between. I love your camel coloured coat and it is such a classic and will never go out of fashion 🙂 x

  2. Beautiful lace top! I have a similar top, but it is sleeveless so I can’t really get it out yet… BUT, maybe I can if I style it with a coat or jacket like you did here. Also, in love with those shoes!

    1. Thank you Carrie! Actually, this top is sleeveless too, but it was OK with the jacket or coat over the top! xo

  3. Changing up your shoes, bags and scarfs are easy ways to transition into spring until the weather catches up! Your lace top is so pretty and I love your cobalt blazer!

    1. Thank you so much Rina! I wear them in the Fall too! I think a lot of the transitioning tips from Spring to Summer also apply in the Fall xoxo

  4. I need all the help I can get with fashion especially spring and summer fashion. Not to mention the transition from winter to spring. It feels like its taking forever for the weather to change. I love your camel trench coat, the white shirt brightens up the entire outfit. Looking good Julia

  5. Indeed, adapting the colors to warmer spring ones can make a huge difference! Over here is really warm, ended up going out in a t-shirt and jeans a couple of days ago hehe. Can’t wait to get inspired by your spring looks. Have a lovely week! <3
