Spring is always a tricky time of year. One day it's wet and blustery and all you want to do is throw on a cardigan and curl up next to a fire with a good book, and the next the sun is out, birds are singing, and you're heading out to the farmers' market to pick up a fresh bouquet. At this unpredictable time of year, it's essential that you have a wardrobe that can seamlessly transition between the extremes. That's easy with a few key pieces that can straddle the line between winter and spring. Before you clear out your closet and pack away your winter wardrobe, set these items aside. They'll keep you stylish and comfortable no matter the weather!
Everyone has a denim jacket in their closet. It's a staple piece that is super versatile and will never let you down. During the winter you probably wore yours layered to keep warm. This spring, try throwing on your denim jacket over a floral dress or with a tank and palazzo pants. It's perfect because you can slip it off if the sun really warms up, but it provides just the right amount of warmth on cool early spring days. See how Darya of TheCabLook pulled off the denim jacket with a leopard-print dress, colored tights and wedges. You could also tie it around your waist as an ode to the '90s. Either way you decide to wear it, definitely keep it for spring because you'll need it!
The ankle boot has been on-trend for a while now, and the style isn't going anywhere any time soon. They were big this winter, but don't put them away just yet. They can easily be transitioned into this season by wearing them with shorts, skirts, and even dresses. Check out Mary from The Classy Cubicle. We love how she styled these ankle boots with a skirt and button-up shirt. We love wearing ankle boots with a casual dress for a day of shopping or running errands. It's a simple ensemble that has an effortless but stylish vibe. Or try wearing your ankle boots with a pair of cutoff shorts and a tank top for a boho look. The outfit possibilities are endless.
An open-knit cardigan was a staple during winter, not only for warmth, but for style as well. If you have a stash of lightweight knit cardigans, keep them accessible throughout spring. The nights can get a little chilly and you'll need something warm. Make sure it is a lightweight style and not too bulky. Cardigans can be worn with everything from cutoff shorts and T-shirts to feminine dresses or rompers. Chelsea, the voice behind Zipped, shows a slouchy gray cardigan over a lightweight tank and chic white denim. Her pastel cross-body bag adds a pop of color to finish off her look and make it spring-appropriate.
