Transitioning your wardrobe from Winter to Spring can be a nightmare for anyone! Luckily, we are here to put that Spring back into your step!
WATCH: L & F with L & A
This was a winter was like no other we have experienced before; lockdown dress code was our favourite pair of jammy bottoms, a semi-formal shirt, warm jacket and scarf for those Zoom meetings. Let’s not forget the bit of “lippie” to just have a little pop of colour to not make us look like Zombies.
But… Never fear when Lize and Ané are near! In this article we are going to give you a few tips to transition from Winter Zombie to Spring Queen!
Here are a few tips to help you smooth out your transition!
- Chunky sweaters. These are a great for topping off those spring dresses or blouses.
- Ankle “booties”. Are not just for pairing with jeans! Boots look great with bare legs too.
- Layerable basics. Temperatures in the Highveld are still in flux, find a way to pair fresh spring pieces with winter-friendly pieces. Layering is the name of the game!
- Statement jackets. So, look to bold statement jackets to elevate your spring looks.
Swop those ankle “booties” for flats!
Ankle “booties” make it easy to change from those chunky “Winter-go-to-booties” to a feminine flat. Feminine flats give you options like ankle strap, romantic prints or chic pointed toes (there’s a shape for every foot!) that will give you the confidence to say: “I am going to rock Spring!”
Trench coat to trendy jacket!
South Africa’s unpredictable weather makes this an easy transition! Swop those trench coats for a “boyfriend” jacket, roll up the sleeves and BAM! you have an easy day to night look. But be trend conscious and pair your “boyfriend” jacket with light layers.
Another great way to transition your wardrobe is to pair heavier fabrics with chiffon, poplin or maybe some leather! Remember to choose breathable fabrics. Do not be scared to layer! If the right fabrics are combined it makes for a very chic look.
We’re all aware of how difficult and daunting it can be to finally switch your wardrobe from one season to another; especially if the one season involved was being locked inside of your house for 3 months! But hopefully after reading through our transitioning tips and tricks, this daunting task will be a fun and exciting project – so pour that glass of wine, put on your favourite “jammies” and sort that wardrobe!
