From Winter To Spring: 8 tips to step into the season

Happy first day of Spring my lovely readers!
I am so excited that the weather is starting to get sweet again, makes me crave summer even more!
However, transitions from season to season can be tricky, as the weather and our mood changes.
Those first weeks of spring can be very confusing, I am constantly questioning myself "is this sweater too heavy or is this shirt too light", "if I wear this I'll be hot by midday and if I don't I'll be cold in the evening", "is this print too summer-y, is this scarf too wintry" and so on.
I'll make an effort to help you through this frustrating process by giving you a few tips on how to change up your wardrobe and how to update your style in order to adjust.

HEAVIER COATS vs JACKETS

Depending on where you live, heavy duty outerwear might still be necessary but in sunny Greece, it's time to put those away and bring out jackets of all sorts. I love a good leather jacket for a toughened up look or a structured blazer for a sophisticated outfit that works from morning till night. My suggestion is if a coat is too warm for the daytime but a lighter jacket is too light for the evening, wear a cardigan underneath your jacket, that way you won't be cold when the sun sets and you still will be able to take it off when you feel hot.

CHUNKY KNIT SCARVES vs LIGHTER PRINTED ONES

Chunky knit scarves are a winter wardrobe staple but in spring they feel kinda meh. Swap those with a more flowy, lighter version with a cute print on it.

SWEATERS vs SWEATSHIRTS

Time to let go of this Christmas-y sweaters that scream winter and go for a fun, printed sweatshirt instead. It's light enough for a warm day and provides enough coverage for the evening (especially if layered). Sweatshirts have made a huge comeback and this is the season to don them.

TEXTURE vs PRINTS

A loaded texture, like jacquard for example, can be too overpowering as we go into spring, a print is what the season calls for. Less is more!

STRUCTURE vs COMFORT

Winter style is a lot about structure, heavily layered looks and thicker fabrics. Spring and summer are all about comfort. Who wants to walk around in a skin tight leather skirt when the temperature is 100 degrees?

PLAID vs POLKA DOTS

I love me a good old flannel shirt but polka dots are so much cuter for spring, don't you think? To double the fun, combine the two prints in one outfit. Mixing and matching is key to a good, unpredictable look.

BOOTS vs BALLET FLATS

I love my boots but I've grown so tired of them after wearing them for 4 months straight. I'm definitely ready for some comfy flats that won't make my feet sweat.

DARK PALETTE vs LIGHT PALETTE

I know black is an all-season color but it's time to lighten up. The sun is shining and the birds are chirping and I need to wear something that matches my mood more appropriately which means I gotta ditch those pretty but more sad burgundies and greys.
Hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it!
Happy Spring everyone!
