Transition Your Winter Wardrobe
Right now, our closet is full of thick knits, cashmere and cosy sweaters to see us through the winter. However, in just a few weeks, we’ll see a glimmer of hope that spring is on its way. Transitioning into the warmer seasons always brings summertime optimism and excitement. But before you start heading out to update your swimwear collection, let’s take a look at some ways to make the style transition from winter to spring.
Neutrals are here to stay
This autumn/winter season saw a myriad of neutral hues take centre stage. Even those bright white jeans often only seen in summer were a huge trend this winter. The perfect thing about this trend is that you don’t have to relegate it to the back of your wardrobe for spring, as neutral colours will work right through to the summer months. Everything from sand, oat, white and dusky orange tones are ideal transitional palettes, and each can be paired with brighter shades when the sun comes out.
As the weather turns warmer, you will be able to strip back those thick knitwear layers. However, as it’s sometimes a mixed bag of sunshine and showers, layering is still a prevalent trend to keep you warm and stylish. Investing in statement designer pieces such as the Burberry Kensington Trench Coat will see you from winter to spring and beyond. Opting for lightweight layers such as the beautiful throws, statement Versace and Chanel scarves and cardigans from Oyuna Cashmere is also a perfect choice.
It’s all in the detail
Accessories are another easy way to transition your style from winter to spring. Adding a chic designer bag such as a gorgeous Gucci, striking Off-White or Yves Saint Laurent in bright white adds a pop of spring colour to your outfit. Belts are also another way to add a touch of spring shades to your overall look.
Blazers are everywhere at the moment, and this trend isn’t set to go anywhere fast. Recent fashion weeks saw a wave of fabulous styles with fashionistas sporting the latest looks on and off the catwalk. The beauty of this trend is that it is the perfect transitional piece. As neutral palettes played a big part in autumn/winter, these shades will take you right through to summer. If you’re looking for the ultimate investment blazer, opting for a beautiful piece from designers such as Christopher Kane, Moschino and Alexander McQueen provides you with stylish and versatile blazers that will last for many seasons to come.
One for the guys
Transitioning is also an essential feature for men’s closet’s as it can be challenging to move away from those rich shades of the winter season. To add some interest to your spring style, Phillip Plein and Kenzo are an excellent choice for on-trend jackets and layering pieces. Plus, designers such as Dior and Etro offer elegant and subtle tailored looks that provide both casual options and formal wear.
