Winter to Spring Style Transition

Transitioning your wardrobe from season to season can be tricky. Especially when the weather can’t decide what it’s doing! In this post, we’ll talk about tips for transitioning you style and clothing pieces you NEED when making this seasonal switch.

First thing to remember when the winter season starts to leave, is that the weather can change in an instant (and it definitely will). So, use that to your advantage and make layers your best friend. Start with a simple tee-shirt or tank top (American Eagle’s Soft & Sexy Collection is perfect for this!) , and add to it. Use a cardigan or denim jacket to dress it up and keep you warm.Keep your look simple, but interesting enough that if you shed layers you won’t look like you just rolled out of bed. A simple necklace or bold earrings are good way to do this. On the bottom you can stick to some cute jeans or dress it up with a skirt. To keep the skirt looking slightly wintery, add some transparent black tights and a boot.

Here are some links of my favorite products mentioned to give you ideas ๐Ÿ™‚


AEO Soft & Sexy V Neck

H&M Cardigan

J Crew Denim Jacket


Abercrombie Jeans

Denim Skirt

Dressy Tulle Skirt


Tassel Necklace

Statement Necklace

Everyday Statement Earrings

The next way to transition your look is with SHOES! Keeping an outfit the same, but changing a shoe can totally change the feeling of a look. Here in Utah, you don’t want to wear heels or sandals in the winter…and sometimes it can be too cold to wear them in the early spring also. But just because you can’tย wear your favorite pair of wedges doesn’t mean you can’t dress up! Try a mid length or shorter dress with some riding boots! Adding tall boots to a dress will not only keep your legs warm, but also keep your look from being prematurely summery. But on the flip-side, if you DO want to wear an open toe heel, pair it with jeans for a classy, dressed up look. I think simple ankle strap heels wear so nicely with a pair of simple skinnies and a dressy shirt.

Products Mentioned


Riding Boot

BP Ankle Strap Heel


Bodycon Dress

Sonnet James Knee Length Dress


Dressy Top

Keeping your shoulders and neck covered while wearing a shorter skirt can be a good way to show you’re ready for spring without having to embrace being cold. Also, use bright colors and prints while still covering up can help move your style closer to spring! Or, reverse it and show more skin while staying among the winter tones.


Floral Skirt

Short Denim Skater Skirt


Off the Shoulder Top

White Peplum Top

So, there are a few tips I like to keep in mind during this weather transition! I hope you can take these tips and apply them to your own wardrobe. Leave a comment about any other tips you have on how to transition your wardrobe from season to season! Thanks for reading!

Hey there! I'm Abby. I'm just a blonde girl, with a blog, from a small town. I LOVE fashion and beauty and getting ready. And I am a firm believer in using clothing and makeup to highlight your best features, not mask them. I grew up dancing at a studio and on a team, and now I can't stop! (Thanks Mom). I love getting ready in the mornings and I love dressing to make myself feel good. It gives a certain sense of confidence that I love. I've started this blog with the intentions of sharing all my favorite things style and beauty with the hopes you'll love them too. I also want this blog to help other girls find what gives them confidence. Because there is nothing better than seeing a woman who KNOWS she looks good. Thanks for giving Girl With The Golden Locks a read! xoxo, abby
