Part of me wants to say that Spring is officially in full swing, but the rain on my birthday this weekend begs to differ. Regardless of the weather, I am absolutely in a Spring wardrobe state of mind. I’m slowly packing up my thick sweaters and opting for lighter pieces. I loooove fall and winter, so typically I dread the turn of the season, but this year i’m totally embracing it. I’ve been freshening up my wardrobe too, which has been a lot of fun. I wanted to share with y’all a few of my tips for transitioning your closet into Spring.
1. Stock up on/ rely on your basics.
I preach my love for good basics all the time, but they are especially important when transitioning seasons. I typically organize my garment rack (I have no closet) with my basics first. This looks like great tee shirts, all of my denim, a few jackets, and basic dresses. This dress is such a versatile piece for a couple reasons. I love that it’s simple enough to style many ways, but has enough fun details to make it interesting. This look would be perfect for a girl’s brunch or casual date night, but if you ditched the jacket and sandals, grabbed some pumps and fun jewelry, it could be a sexy date night or even wedding guest dress. Tobi is one of my favorite places to find dresses because they have such a crazy, wide variety. Some are casual sundresses, some are more suitable for formal occasions, but my favorite part is that there are plenty like this one that can do both!
2. Pack away your winter clothes.
It completely takes the fun out of styling new outfits when I look on my rack and can’t see past my heavy jackets and sweaters. I keep a few front and center for layering, but I pack up the pieces I know I won’t be grabbing for. This way, I can grab pieces and put a fun outfit on quickly in the morning.
3. Purge & sell!
Have you ever had a piece of clothing that you hesitated to get rid of because you “swear you’ll wear it next Spring?” I’m assuming y’all are nodding your heads because we all do this. I like to go through my clothes at the beginning of the season and get rid of all of the stuff that i’m not excited to wear. If it’s in good shape, i’ll sell it on Poshmark, otherwise I will donate it. This opens up more space (and funds) for new clothes.
4. Focus on the accessories.
You’d be surprised how much of your “fall” wardrobe can totally work for Spring. An easy way to change the look of your pieces is by updating your accessories. Throw on your basic denim & t-shirt but instead of booties, put on your favorite mules and some fun earrings. You’re Spring appropriate without having to work too hard.
I cannot wait for the weather to really warm up. This time of year is so fun for me… lake trips, my birthday, hanging outside… there is nothing better! What are y’all doing to prep your wardrobe for Spring?
