The fact that it’s March has me thinking that it’s technically spring already. And that we should all technically be wearing spring clothes. I gotta keep dreamin’! With recent bitterly cold temps, I’ve been thinking about the winter essentials that I’ve kept around while I’m transitioning my wardrobe. There are five that I’ve thought of that you shouldn’t stow away just quite yet. You’re probably thinking, “Um, duh, it’s freezing.” I mean don’t stow these 5 winter essentials away once the temps are consistently 50 and above 🙂
Top 5 Winter Essentials to Wear in Spring:
Transitioning your wardrobe from winter to spring is all about the art of layering. A layer to keep you warm in the mornings and evenings. Then a layer to keep you cool when the sun is shining its brightest!
1) Loose, Cozy Knits
If you have any looser, more open-knit sweaters, get ready to bring them out for spring transitional! These cozy knits are the best layering pieces over tees, camis, tanks, etc. I’m linking to some of my favorites under $50 below!
2) Suede or Leather Moto Jackets
Moto jackets are not only on my winter essentials list but also my wardrobe essentials list. That’s because you can wear them in almost any season! Both my suede and my leather moto jackets are key pieces in my transitional wardrobe.
3) Ankle Booties
The underlying concept behind layering still kind of applies here with shoes. Strategically wear ankle booties with lighter weight pieces like dresses and skirts. This pair of booties are my favorite when it comes to ankle booties. They have been a hit from my Amazon designer dupes post!
4) Trench Coat
Eventually, when the temps stabilize, it will be time to put away wool coats and parkas. But for those days when it feels cold enough out for a coat, that’s where a trench coat comes in. I love wearing mine to work for that extra professional touch to an outfit. A trench also dresses up a casual outfit with jeans. I got mine from Club Monaco, and I feel like they have some of the best designs and styles on the market for trench coats.
