This year on Groundhog Day, Punxsutawney Phil failed to spot his shadow signifying spring is around the corner. That means that despite how cold it might be in some parts of the world right now, warmer, sunnier days are upon us.
But how exactly does one start the closet transition from winter wardrobe to spring? Do it the way I do it—slowly stop layering until it’s so hot that you can only wear a bathing suit and sandals.
Here is my personal list of steps to how to transition from cold to warm without having to completely change your wardrobe.
I start wearing long underwear the second it starts to get cold and as soon as it’s even the slightest bit less cold, I free myself and start wearing less and less.
Because I’ve recently started wearing cardigans (read our cute article about them,) I’ve realized that they are the perfect sweater to wear when it’s as cold as ice and when it’s sunny and warm and a perfect wrap for around the waist.
Another great layer to use as a transition piece is a trench coat.
Something basically made for every type of climate because of layers that can go under and over. Some trench coats are even so compact that you can fold them up and put them in your tote bag.
No matter what the climate is, I always love wearing boots.
Because they can make your feet overheat, when it gets less cold, try wearing slimmer socks. I’m also excited for warm weather because loafers have just come back in style and those are PERFECT for every season.
In terms of beauty, you should always wear sunscreen, no matter the climate. You should also use a scalp mask for when the weather is extremely dry and another one to lock in moisture and reduce frizz for when it’s hot hot hot.
However you decide to transition your spring wardrobe, it’s important to remember that every place around the world has donation spots and charities. Whatever happens, you’re going to look great.
