Are you as ready for spring as I am? If so, you’ve probably already been sneaking your spring staples into your winter looks with a few extra layers piled on. While I love seasonal trends and the ability to channel completely different designer looks from month to month, I also think it’s important to have a transitional wardrobe selection full of items that can get you through the year. Transitional pieces from Tanger can effortlessly bridge the gap between winter to spring and take you through the unpredictable weather that comes with changing seasons.
I’m going to share with you my 5 favorite items that get the most wear in between the winter and spring months. It’s a tricky transition, but there’s no reason to say “See ya later!” to these favorite staples when you don’t have to. Let’s get started!
Ankle booties allow you to tone down your warmer weather or spring-ready looks, you know… so that you don’t look desperate wearing your sandals with your sundress in February! If it’s still a little cool outside, just toss on your favorite winter booties and you’re good to go, judgment free.
Longline vests can be layered for chillier weather and paired down as it gets warmer. Go with a tailored piece with clean lines and a neutral color that can be combined with almost anything in your closet. It’s a crisp, stylish option for either season. I’ve found a number of different options at Calvin Klein and Theory.
My ankles are the first part of my body to make a warm weather appearance. Whether I toss on my favorite pair of cropped jeans or simply roll up the skinnies I’ve had tucked into my boots all winter, it’s a super, simple way to add a touch of spring to your look.
WHITE BUTTON DOWN
If you don’t already have a white button down in your closet, now is the time to pick one up (I recommend the Stretch Classic from J.Crew Factory)! Crisp, white tops look great paired with your winter layers while it’s cool and and under your favorite spring dress when it warms up. Even if it is just the peep of a collar, it will lighten up your look. And sometimes, the prep is necessary.
LIGHTWEIGHT DENIM JACKET
A denim jacket is a year-long staple. It never fails as a solid transitional piece. Once you can start shedding those heavy winter coats, it steps in as a perfect replacement – thick enough to still provide warmth and bold enough for a spring edge. I like to wear mine to toughen up a girly skirt and layer over thick jumpers on chillier days.
