We're Loving Creativity in the Closet Wednesday!
Incorporating Spring Fashion Into Your (Still) Cold Weather Wardrobe!
Spring is finally here! Or is it? Everyone I know has had enough of this cold weather already.
I don’t know about you, but I am ready to pull out some of those breezy, cheerful spring pieces, and I don’t want to wait another second! So what if there’s snow still on the ground? I’m not letting that stop me from starting to incorporate spring into my wardrobe. Besides, maybe if we start wearing some sunny pieces, the weather will actually oblige and warm up.
And with just a little bit of ingenuity you absolutely can put together some (still) cold weather looks using spring and summer pieces. Don't believe me? Let me show you how I did exactly that.
I pulled out two of my favorite light tops: a breezy blue and white chevron blouse (Francesca’s) and a mesh and laser-cut white peplum top (Nordstrom). Then I searched my closet and imagined how I would wear them to keep consistent with the still cold weather.
For the first look, I decided to pair the chevron top with a cobalt leather jacket (Nordstrom) and a contrasting all-season gold bandage skirt (Maya’s Place), and finished the look with one of my favorite spring purchase: my white peep-toe booties (Kristin Cavallari). These booties are the perfect pair of shoes to take these trans-seasonal outfits from one season into the next.
This outfit will also be perfect for those days that start out cool and warm up slowly. All I’ll have to do is remove the jacket when it gets too hot.
For the second look, I wanted to keep with a monochromatic white on beige look, so I paired the peplum top with a beige suede skirt and those fabulous booties. Because white is such a quintessentially summer color, the suede instantly warmed up the top keeping it appropriate for the cooler weather. Gold accessories finished the look and added further warmth.
In warmer weather I would wear this top with florals, silver and even black, but for now, the warm beige suede seemed just right.
Now it’s your turn. Open your closet and pull out your favorite spring pieces and start getting creative. Think about how you can pair them with some of your winter pieces to create relevant outfits for right now. Not only will you be inviting that dream of Spring into your life, you’ll also be expanding your wardrobe possibilities in ways you may have never imagined!
