Frosty to Floral: 7 Transitional Pieces from Winter to Spring

As winter thaws and spring begins to bloom, we’re trapped in that strange in-between weather… So what should we be wearing?

Embrace the changing seasons with transitional pieces that effortlessly bridge the gap. From cozy knits to vibrant florals, here are our 7 must-have items for any stylish transitional winter-to-spring wardrobe.

1. Cashmere sweaters

Temperatures are rising but some days are still chilly, so you want to stay warm without overheating. Lightweight cashmere is the perfect balance of warmth and breathability for those chilly mornings and hot afternoons. Cashmere is a high-quality, all-natural material that exudes luxury and sophistication, making it the perfect elevated basic.

Choose soft pastel shades for spring or classic neutrals like ivory and beige that you can easily mix and match. Pair your sweater with tailored trousers or clean jeans for a chic look.

2. Trench coats

A trench coat is a timeless staple in any transitional wardrobe. It fends off the wind and rain while remaining light enough for balmier days as well. A trench coat is a versatile piece that easily goes from work to play, perfect for navigating unpredictable weather and an adventurous lifestyle.

You can never go wrong with the classic beige trench coat. But if you want to experiment with color, try navy or olive green for a more contemporary twist. Layer your trench over a simple sweater and jeans for daytime, or drape it over a floral or silk dress for evening.

3. Silk blouses

Elevate your wardrobe with luxurious, feminine silk blouses. Lightweight silk offers breathability and comfort, perfect for warm spring days. They’re also easy to layer under sweaters or outerwear, helping you bundle up on chillier days.

4. Midi skirts

Midi skirts are a stylish way to stay warm and cool. They cover most of the leg, protecting you from rogue winds or winter chills. But a flowing midi skirt in chiffon or satin is also light and airy, letting your legs breathe during warmer hours.

Pair a midi skirt with a fitted cashmere sweater and ankle boots for upscale daywear, or add a silk blouse and heels for a formal night on the town.

Add edginess to your transitional wardrobe with a classic leather jacket. Layer it over a cozy sweater to stay warm, or pair it with a floral sundress for a cool-girl vibe.

7. Cropped trousers

Cropped, wide-leg trousers marry style with comfort. These modern trousers are elegant and versatile; you can pair them with fitted tops for a tailored, work-ready look or flowy blouses for a more relaxed ensemble. Cropped trousers can work well with any footwear: pair with ankle boots for chillier days or strappy sandals for breezy ones.

The style of cropped trousers you wear might depend on your body shape. For example, tall women tend to look beautiful in wide-leg trousers that accentuate the legs. More petite, gamine women might want a tapered crop that hugs the ankle. Try out different silhouettes to see what works best with you.
