How to Transition into Spring
Hey babes. So it’s finally that time of year – spring! We’ve been dying for the long winter months to finally end, and now we’re here. March ushers in a whole new season for most of us, full of feminine florals, lighter jackets, heeled sandals, and, of course, a little more skin than the past half a year.
But transitioning from winter to spring can be a little bit tricky, especially as the weather tends to get a little bit cray this time of year. How can you seamlessly move your wardrobe into the new season without sacrificing your sanity in the process? Never fear, babes – we’ve put together a super easy six-step guide to help get you there in no time at all. Read on for peace of mind and some super great style tips.
Step 1 – Ditch the Heavy Jackets
Girl – you gotta do it. Now. Go to your closet, pull out all of your heavy parkas, puffer jackets, heavy wool toppers, EVERYTHING. Carefully pack those beauties up and store them away for winter six months from now. The sooner you get these babies out of your closet, the better. You’ll have more room to play with and you’ll be less inclined to grab that super fluffy parka you’ve been wearing since September. Trust us – you’ll thank us later.
Instead of hamming it up in these heavy wintertime coats, pull out your favorite spring jackets and get ready to feel lighter, sexier, and totally freer. Look for pieces with a little bit of texture and an added pop of color if you really want to chase away those winter blues.
Not ready to transition away from winter entirely? Look for a piece that is versatile, with a warm fabrication but feminine spring details like our totally gorgeous Feelin’ Gray-te Embroidered Wool Coat. This beautiful piece features a super cozy fit with an extended length to help keep your legs warm, too. The real drama starts at the bodice, with the eye-catching embroidered flowers. This flirtatious detailing adds a much needed hint of spring color and texture that makes this coat perfect for transitioning into spring.
Step 2 – Break Out the Feminine Florals
Time to ditch those tried-and-true wintertime patterns, babe. Don’t get us wrong, we totally love a great plaid, but it’s time to throw on something fresh to help get us ready for spring. And for us, that totally means florals. Rather than simply packing away or edging out your wintertime colors and patterns, try mixing them with some eye-catching feminine florals for an edgy new look that will look totally gorgeous.
We’re totally all about the floral blouse for the spring – after all it’s a classic! This season we’re taking it up a notch with the statement-making Grow Up Floral Ruffled Blouse. This totally gorgeous top features a head-turning ruffled neckline, waterfall ruffles across the bodice, and sexy bell sleeves. With the beautiful floral print, this blouse will totally have you ready for anything that spring has in store.
Not really down with a floral blouse? Go for the other classic springtime staple – the floral dress. We’re totally all about our Flower Daze Maxi Dress for this seasonal transition. With its sexy v-neckline and spaghetti straps paired with the eye-catching vintage blue and white pattern, this dress will look totally perfect under a jacket or when worn on its own. Simply throw on a pair of flat or heeled sandals and you’re ready to go.
If you’re looking for a way of incorporating florals into your look in an unexpected way, look for a pair of statement denim pants in a bold pattern. We’re totally in love with our All About That Ankle Pants in Tropical to do this job – with their super sexy fitted silhouette and eye-catching tropical floral printed pattern, these babies are totally going to make the perfect statement wherever you go and whatever you pair them with.
Step 3 – Ruffles. Ruffles on Everything.
If you’re looking for the perfect way to transition in terms of visual interest for the spring season, switch out your statement sleeves for totally gorgeous ruffled detailing. These feminine details will look totally chic with anything and everything in your closet and are the perfect way to add an eye-catching effect to any outfit. And with this type of detailing, you can easily add different colors, textures, or patterns to your look.
Looking for an easy way to add this springtime trend to your wardrobe? We’d totally recommend Off White Ruffle Sleeve Blouse for you – this sexy little number brings a few of our favorite trends together in a totally gorgeous way, pairing flirty ruffles with a shoulder-baring neckline and eye-catching bell sleeves. All in all, this blouse is totally perfect.
If you really want to add some voluminous ruffles to your wardrobe, go for a statement-making piece like our beautiful Pump Up the Volume White Mini Dress. This head turning dress is designed with a flattering a-line silhouette that slims the figure and helps make your legs look miles and miles long when paired with the sexy short hemline. The true drama lies in the oversized ruffled sleeves that add gorgeous visual texture and volume to the look.
Step 4 – Add a Classic Trench
Better beware babe – with the spring comes the showers! Time to break out the raincoats and trenches for an easy-to-manage transition from winter to spring. With the right accessories and fit, a classic trench coat can look totally chic with anything and everything in your closet. We’d totally recommend looking for a trench with a belt at the natural waistline for a cinched-in effect that will give you an hourglass shape, even when hidden underneath the trench.
On the hunt for the perfect transitional classic trench? Don’t worry boo – we’ve got you. We’re totally digging our Trenched in Darkness Coat to keep us dry and totally gorgeous all spring long. This baby is designed with a classic trench shape and super edgy modern detailing at the bodice and sleeve. And that belt at the waistline with silver hardware? Utterly to die for. Trust us – this trench will totally be your newest obsession for spring.
Step 5 – Dusters are Your New BFF
If you’re not already totally addicted to dusters, you soon will be. These babies are the perfect transitional piece for spring thanks to their extended length and breezy wear. Not to mention that they come in a wide variety of fabrics, prints, and textures – they’re totally perfect for throwing on over any outfit when you need a little bit more coverage or warmth as the spring season goes on.
We’re totally in love with dusters, especially a few of our very own. In particular, we’re all about our Let’s Stripe to it Duster. This sexy little number is designed with a sleek silhouette that hugs the figure and a bold black and white striped pattern that will totally have all eyes on you. With the open draped front and full-length sleeves, this piece is the perfect throw-on-and-go jacket for those colder spring days.

Step 6 – Fall in Love with Sandals All Over Again
That’s right babe – time to break out the spring and summer sandals! No more hiding your feet behind cute little booties and boots – time to (finally) let them see the sun again. Whether you’re looking for a pair of flats or heels, you can’t go wrong with sandals.
On the hunt for the perfect pair of flat sandals? Look no further – the Julie Sandals are totally it. These sexy little numbers are designed with a sleek minimalist silhouette and a luxe pebbled leather finish for a look that’s totally gorgeous from top to bottom.

On the hunt for a pair of heels instead of flats? We’re totally obsessing over the minimalist heel trend, like with our sexy Carrson Block Heels. These babies are designed with a soft suede fabric, a barely there silhouette, and an easy to wear block heel that you can rock all day and night long.
