1. Wear your neutrals with an added pop of color
Just because its spring does not mean you need to toss out your blacks, grey, taupes, and browns. Countinue to wear all your go-to winter neutrals, but incorporate a pastel piece or a pop of bright color. You can do this by adding a blazer in a shade like baby pink, or go bold with a bright statement earring, bag or scarf.
2. Sweaters paired with skirts
Don't put those chunky knit sweaters to the back of the closet just yet, pair with a skirt and achieve a contrast of textures and a chic look while keeping the volume on the top half and light and airy on the bottom half.
3. Summer Dress + Over the Knee Boots
All those sweet airy summer dresses you have stored in the back of your closet, break them out, but this time pair them with over the knee boots. The boots will keep you warmer and are more appropriate for the season. They can also give a dressier vibe to the outfit if you are going on date night, or to a dinner party.
3. Lightweight outerwear
Invest in a one or two lightweight outerwear pieces, such as a blazer, trench, or caridgan. These are perfect for the in between temps because they are light weight and they won't weigh you down in the warm afternoons of spring, but keep you warm in the mornings and evenings. We all know how bi-polar our weather can be one minute your sweating bullets and the next you're shivering.
4. Light colored denim + mules
Instead of reaching for your black/grey/and dark denim choose a light wash or white pant. This will instantly brighten up your outfit and give more of a fresh feel to your look. Pair the sky blue hues with a chunky mule or open toe shoe. Showing off the ankles and toes makes you one step closer to sandals.
