Transitioning between seasons this time of year can be challenging for our wardrobes. While our minds are ready for spring, the volatile weather teases us with sunshine one day, then drops freezing rain and gusty winds the next. What’s a girl to wear when cozy winter pieces don’t quite fit the season’s fashions, but light spring pieces don’t quite fit the weather? Don’t you worry–I’m here to save the day with some fashion inspiration on what to wear in between seasons. Here’s how to transition your favorite winter styles to spring updates for the warm-ish days ahead.
1. Florals and Waist-Emphasizing Details
Immune to seasonality, florals are a versatile trend you can wear all year round. Waist-emphasizing details are a great way to add interesting details and flattering shapes to your favorite floral pieces. Floral waist ties may have been your winter favorite, but get ready for floral knot front details to take their place.

2. Utilitarian Bottoms
I absolutely love wearing utilitarian pieces. They’re perfect for dressing down your overall look to practical casual without compromising the cool factor. If you loved wearing your favorite cargo pants in winter, you’ll love the skinny camo alternative for spring. They still feel a little bit edgy, and you can choose a pair with ankle zippers or small pockets for added detail.
winter favorite: cargo pant
spring update: skinny camo
Light jackets always bring interesting layers to an outfit. An edgy moto jacket is a definite winter staple, but spring days on the horizon call for lighter pastel pieces. Try a pastel drape front jacket when transitioning between seasons. It’ll allow you to easily show off some of your favorite fresh new pieces underneath.

4. Statement Sleeves
You won’t see the statement sleeve trend leaving the fashion world any time soon. Long bell sleeves were a winter favorite, but soon you’ll see short ruffle sleeves taking over as we slowly slip into spring. If you ask me, the more ruffles the better. If you’re wearing a dress, don’t be afraid to try some ruffles along both the sleeves and hemline.
winter favorite: bell sleeves
spring update: short ruffle sleeves
Sweaters are often associated with winter, but the varying weight and textures of sweaters actually make them a versatile style for in-between seasons. Chunky cable knit sweaters were perfect for cold winter nights by the fire, but lightweight striped pullovers are great for chilly strolls outside as flowers start to bloom.
