In the fashion world, Spring started months ago. Stores have already put out their Spring collections, in with the new, out with the old! Right? Not exactly. There are some key clothing pieces from your winter wardrobe that you must introduce to your Spring wardrobe! Smart fashion at it’s finest.
First article of clothing? The wide pant. This is a favorite winter items. Cute, fun, and casual. Although heavy fabrics shouldn’t be worn in the Spring, lightweight fabrics or denim can definitely be transitioned into Spring fashion. Put away those boots and pair your wide pant with cute wedges or colorful high heels. You can also lighten up pants with a darker fabric by wearing a light colored top.
A second must save from your winter wardrobe is your tuxedo jacket. This jacket is a classic and can be paired with a set of pearls or a set of colorful bangles to bring out the Spring feel. You can wear this jacket with anything- from dresses to shorts!
Third. Your scarves. Now, we’re not talking about the scarf you wear when it is 20 degrees below zero and you are going to the store to get milk, but we’re talking about the lightweight, patterned scarf you may own, or the solid color pashmina scarf you have! Ladies, these scarves can be worn year round, especially in the spring. Pair that scarf with a spring jacket or a long spring maxi dress. The scarf will give you some warmth (spring in Chicago can still be chilly!) and it will also give you another chance to add color to your outfit!
Now that you have a few pieces you know you can save- start cleaning out your winter wardrobe and start to transition your closet to your spring must haves. One last thing to note: make sure to keep all of your classic items. This includes your white t-shirts, timeless shirts and skirts, and your favorite cardigans. And… If you haven’t worn it in several months… DONATE IT! The clutter won’t help anyone and it will stand in the way of the fabulous spring outfits you have hanging in your closet ready to be worn!
