How to Style Early Spring Fashion

Who else is ready for Spring? After the winter whirlwind we had in February, I’ve been appreciating the warmer temperatures even more this season. Living in Texas, Spring is one of my favorite seasons because it feels like what I imagine most people experience in early summer. When it comes to fashion, there’s still enough variety in the weather to really get the most out of your wardrobe. Today, I’m sharing a few tips that will help you transition your winter wardrobe into a spring-friendly style.

Introduce a new color palette

Naturally, we tend to wear a lot of dark and cool-toned shades like gray, navy, and black in the winter. Depending on where you live, early spring may still warrant those durable winter clothes. The easiest way to transition to a new season without sacrificing warmth is to introduce a new color into your weekly rotation. I shared a few pastel shades worth trying out in my loungewear haul and have been loving the mood shift something as simple as softer colors provide. Here are a few spring shades to get you started:

  • Soft Lavender
  • Bubblegum pink
  • Seafoam green
  • Canary yellow
  • Light Beige

Softer colors will get you out of the “winter blues” but still provide flexibility with what type of clothes you decide to wear. With this tip, you can still get the most out of heavier fabrics during those weeks with cold fronts. Speaking of which, this brings us to the next style tip.

Outfit Ideas for winter to spring fashion

The lighter the fabric, the darker the shade

What separates an intentional early spring outfit from one that haphazardly mixes seasonal fashion pieces together is all in the assembly. The trick to looking put together is in balancing your fabric choices with the color palette. As mentioned previously, winter typically means you’re wearing dark gray sweaters, heavy black coats, and other deep hues.

While you can certainly still wear those things, it’s a good idea to wear heavier fabrics in lighter colors as you transition into Spring. This slight tweak adds a fresh spin to your outfit but still gives you the comfort of staying warm when you need it. Save the navy, gray, and black options for lighter articles of clothing like shorts, dresses, and scarves.

Last but not least, remember to balance out your look with things that are a bit too warm for summer outfits. Think of spring as your last call for cooler weather items. At least here in Texas, the idea of wearing a lot of pants and jackets at any point in the summer is an absolute no. For this reason, it’s fun to relish in the mild temperatures and comfortably wear things like leather, knits, and denim while you still can. Need a few outfit ideas? Try some of these winter to spring fashion ideas:
