TRANSITIONING INTO SPRING STYLE


Sometimes it can be hard to transition your wardrobe from season to season, especially if you live in England like myself, where the weather can be unpredictable all year round. But it's time to start thinking about Spring style...can you believe it's already March? - ahhh!

Spring is a wonderful season, filled with flowers, sunshine and blossom trees. Everything is starting to get more colourful, the days are getting longer, the evenings are getting lighter, and everyone's mood seems to lift slightly with the thought of warmer days. I'm definitely more of a Spring/Summer kind of girl, so this time of year fills me with motivation and positivity, and LOTS of style inspiration. I still haven't updated my wardrobe for the coming season yet, but I wanted to kick start the Spring blog posts with some small tips on how you can start transitioning into Spring with items that you already have in your wardrobe. 



1) Swapping coats for jackets.
The weather is never going to be super warm at this time of year, but it's definitely time to start shedding the layers bit by bit when it comes to your outfit. I usually like to start off by swapping my larger, thicker coats to more lightweight outerwear pieces such as denim or faux leather jackets. They're a lot less bulky, but still give you the warmth that you need and of course you can still layer up underneath if needed. Also time to ditch those huge blanket scarfs that engulf our whole outfit, and start showing more of what's underneath - no more getting away with wearing your pyjama top out!



2) Mixing in lighter shades.
For some people, their wardrobe consists of pale/lighter colours all throughout the year, but for me I usually gravitate towards wearing darker shades in the colder months. My Winter wardrobe is mostly made up of the typical greys, blacks and warmer shades, but when it hits Spring I like to brighten things up a little. This doesn't mean ditching these colours all together, but maybe mixing in a few different tones and variations to give your style the seasonal switch-up. For example, I've practically been living in my black over-the-knee boots this Winter, but I've now started wearing my pale grey pair a lot more as they brighten up my outfit whilst still keeping my legs warm (still grey I know, but a lighter shade which can be worn with cooler/brighter tones). I'm also wearing a lot more white, and will be looking to pick up some pastel pieces to update my wardrobe and bring in a bit more colour.



3) Accessories.
When you're wearing lots of layers during Winter, it can be hard to focus on your accessories because you feel as though they are always hidden. However, as the seasons transition, you can start to think about little added extras which might elevate your outfit further. This can be jewellery, sunglasses or handbags for example. I love wearing this red handbag as it always adds a pop of colour to my outfit. I've also started wearing more jewellery recently, and especially layering necklaces as you can see them much better without a chunky scarf taking over! Statement earrings are very on trend as well, and can add a bit of fun to an outfit without going overboard - there's no hiding underneath your bobble hat now!
