The seasons are changing, so that means it’s time to update that wardrobe! While the opportunity to let your legs out of hiding is always exciting, many women struggle to decide what new pieces they should invest in and what staples in their closet can transition from winter to spring. Everyone deserves to treat themselves to a few new trendy pieces each season – especially when you’re celebrating the end of winter! However, plenty of pieces that you already have can be worn in the coming months. Here are some tips for transitioning your closet from winter to spring:

Small bags

As temperatures rise, you’ll probably be spending more time out and about. However, it’s understandable to not want to carry everything you bring to work with you to an upcoming street fair. This is why it’s handy to have a go-to small bag. Opt for one in a neutral color, like a black or brown leather cross body bag.This way, it’ll match any outfit you’re wearing! You just need one that’s big enough to fit your cash, cards and cellphone so you can travel light. It might be tough to part with your big bag at first, but you’ll quickly get used to it!

A pencil skirt

A pencil skirt is a necessity no matter what season it is. It’s comfortable in the winter with a pair of tights, but also totally practical to wear without anything covering your legs in the spring and summer. If you’ve grown tired of your plain black one, switch it up a bit with a print pencil skirt this spring. This not only varies a work look that you’ve probably worn time and time again, but it’s also a fresh way to embrace the season while still wearing a tried-and-true favorite. A blue hue is very on trend this season.

Peep-toe shoes

It’s not just your legs that get to breathe as the sun starts shining again, but your toes, too! With outfits that you’d normally wear boots, like a chunky sweater and leggings, you can substitute a pair of peep-toe wedge heels as spring rolls around. It’s a great way to give your outfit a seasonal look, even if it’s not warm enough to wear them with a sun dress yet. These shoes are comfortable and versatile, so you can dress them up or down all spring and summer. That’s why wedges have been on trend each spring, year after year!

“Wear chinos with anything.”

Chinos

Many people struggle to find the perfect pair of pants that aren’t as casual as a pair of jeans, but also aren’t as dressy as work pants for women. Chinos are those pants! With a cropped hem, you can wear these with your favorite pair of ankle boots until winter totally winds down, and then with pointy toe flats once it’s warmer. Once you start wearing chinos, you’ll want them in every color for every occasion – with a t-shirt on the weekend or work blouse during the week.

Bracelets

Though women’s fashion accessories are stylish all year round, there’s no harm in taking some extra care to adorn your arms once you’re living in sun dresses and sleeveless blouses. A bangle set or a watch with a matching bracelet is a great way to stay on trend, but also make sure you’re always on time now that there is so much more daylight to enjoy! Go ahead and mix metal colors, too!
