Although there are still a few more weeks of winter left, we’re already looking forward to spring, so we’ve chosen to share a few of our favorite fashion finds that can easily transition from frigid temps to warmer weather with just a few adjustments. From the trending lace-up ballet shoes, to feminine bows, knit berets, and more, we have the pieces you need to shift gears when it comes to the changing of the seasons. With a few beautiful items and some practical applications you’ll be well on your way to having a fabulous winter to spring wardrobe.
Little Black Bow
Polka dots patterns are so classic and are perfect for pairing with winter and spring ensembles alike. Whether you’re planning to team this with your favorite long sleeve white button down, or a pink mod 1960s-esque shift dress, this little bow will be the perfect complement to your outfits regardless of the season. The black polka dot bow pictured above from Saint Laurent features a leather collar and has a highly sweet and sophisticated appearance.
Flower Power Beret
Berets can keep you warm in the winter and stylish in the spring, which is why this versatile accessory is perfect for either season. Proven popular by InStyle magazine, the beret is a must-have topper among celebrities, so we’ve decided to add a little variety into the mix with the use of bold color and embellishments. Depicted above, the beautiful pink flower felt beret from the San Diego Hat Company features a fun floral adornment and a bold color that will brighten up any ensemble.
Striped T-Shirt Dress
T-shirt dresses are easy, versatile, comfy, and instantly stylish according to Harper’s Bazaar family, which is why we’ve chosen to present the adorable black and white striped frock made by Vero Moda. With a cardigan, tights, and booties, this piece would work perfectly in the winter. With your favorite pair of sandals and a matching tote, this dress is easy breezy enough for spring. For some unexpected flair and seasonal fun, incorporate pops of color with your tights, shoes, handbag, or other accessories.
Fancy Ballet Flats
A versatile and practical trend—and one that’s also really girly—is the popular lace-up style ballet flat that’s highly touted by Lyst. If you want a great transitional shoe that allows you to pair them with tights and pants in the winter just as easily as dresses, skirts, and shorts in the spring, then consider the Bella Vita Ollie lace-up ballet flats shown in black. Not only are they neutral in color, making them very versatile, but they also feature an elegant ghillie lace design, sweet tassel detail, and rhinestone studding that enhances the shoe’s femininity.
Now that you’ve seen our selections for complementing a winter-to-spring transitional wardrobe, we hope you’re inspired to spend a little time having fun in your own closet. Feminine details are in for spring, and when paired with heavier knits and higher coverage items, they’ll work equally as well during the last few weeks of winter. Remember to have fun, enjoy the process, and stick with staple items that feature classic patterns and versatile features.
