Essential Transitional Pieces For Moving From Winter To Spring

Spring is in bloom.

Spring is in bloom.

As much as the winter is great for layering and cuddle up in down jackets and cashmere mittens, the spring, after all those months, is a welcomed change. You finally get to put away those L.L.Bean boots, the five wool socks you wore with them everyday, and sweater dresses (are people still wearing those?) are but a memory — until November comes around again, of course.

Although the weather is getting warmer, it still isn’t as warm as it will be in July. It’s amazing how brilliant that sentence was, so it stays. But the point is, spring calls for some essential pieces to get us from winter to summer — the two most extreme seasons of the year. It’s also a chance to break away from our blacks and greys, and go a little lighter in the color department.

All of the following photos are from J.Crew unless otherwise noted. I’m not suggesting you become a J.Crew fan, but these are just examples of pieces that will make your transition into spring oh-so stylish. If you want to rock black wool all year round, then go for it; I salute you.

      Does anyone else think that baseball hat/trench combination looks unbelievably stupid for some reason? Way to ruin a good coat with bad accessories.

      Also, Americans need to embrace the opaque tight. Black can look a little heavy this time of year, but grey looks fantastic paired with denim skirts, and of course you can always break out the less usual colors if you can manage to co-ordinate that well (I usually cannot). They look great with Oxfords, too!

        I totally agree about the hat — absolutely absurd. And right on about the tights — I can’t wait to break out my Oxfords and tights!

      Celebrate if you want. I’ll join you later, but for now I’ll be mourning the passing of the Boot.

      Celebrating the change of season is also great since you can change your wardrobe choices!
