Alright guys, get ready for an extra sensible post today. We’re gonna talk about 4 winter pieces that transition beautifully from winter to spring because I want y’all to get max wear out of everything you own. The weather’s been all sorts of cray here in the DMV – sometimes it’s warm, sometimes it’s cold, who knows. It hit 60-something yesterday, and I was legit skipping because it was so gorgeous out.
However, regardless of how nice it is outside (…sometimes), it’s still not warm enough to wear cute spring garb on its own, which brings me to my latest. You’re obviously not gonna want to wear your parka in this weather, but there are definitely wintery pieces you can still sport on the regular.
1. Chunky sweaters, oversized cardigans, and [insert fave knit of choice], oh my!
I could seriously live in chunky knits all day, every day. As you can see, I wore a super springy outfit with a thick duster – kind of an oxymoron, but you guys get what I mean – for today’s OOTD to keep me warm. It was nicer than usual so I bared my legs, but that all depends on the weather obviously. If you’re looking to whip out a short skirt or a mini-dress, pair it with a cute knit cardigan for ensembles that’ll wow. You can also wear a chunky sweater on top of a dress for a chic look that’ll keep you nice and warm.
2. Booties, booties, booties, booties rockin’ everywhere!
I don’t know about you guys, but I have a serious boot fetish. Ok well, it’s more of a shoe fetish, but I have a special place in my heart for boots. Over-the-knee, suede, leather, ankle, the list goes on and on, and I sure as hell don’t discriminate, ha. Lucky for me, and for you I’m assuming, the shorter styles transition beautifully into spring so we can at least feel good about cost per wear. Pair them with dresses and minis to make a stylish statement on the regular. If you want something a bit more casual, cuff your jeans and pair them with a bamf pair of printed booties for an effortlessly fashionable getup!
3. Turtlenecks are your (layering) besties!
OK so obviously I’m not talking about the thickest turtleneck you own, but take something that’s (fairly) lightweight and pair it with a summery dress for a cute look! Put on the top first, and then throw on your mini – just make sure it doesn’t bunch up or you’ll look like you have serious muffin top. Not body shaming or anything, but why thicken your midsection when you don’t have to? Unless that’s the look you’re going for. #whateverfloatsyourboat
4. Leggings are a godsend…tights, too!
I have a huge collection of tights and leggings, and I love using them to transition into spring and fall. Solid black tights look sexy as hell when paired with black shoes – hello visual illusions – but don’t feel limited to classic pairings. Honestly, the aforementioned set is a go-to for me because I LOVE looking taller and leaner, but I have a bunch of fun options in my arsenal, too – think polka dots, floral prints, fishnets, etc. Wear them with minis to keep your stems cozy, while showing off some personality while you’re at it. I purchased most of them from Kohl’s and ASOS, but I have a bunch from the Wolford Factory Outlet as well.
