I love that we’re approaching spring, and already my mind is fully on florals, culottes, and bright fresh colour palettes. But, we’re not fully there just yet. We’re in this strange transitional period. Some days are bright and sunny, and others are cold and wintery. The weather is unpredictable and that means we need to make our style flexible to work for whatever the day may bring.
Transition Your Style from Winter to Spring
Invest in a Light Jacket
A light jacket, or leather jacket, will become an essential during this winter-to-spring transitional time of year. Our heavy winter coats are too heavy for the mild temperatures, but we can’t forgo a coat entirely due to unpredictable rain and wind. Look for a coat that offers you a bit of warmth, is waterproof, and will protect you from the wind.
Be Prepared for the Rain
You know what they say – April showers bring May flowers! March and April tend to be rainy, and that means you need to be prepared for it! Invest in pieces that’ll keep you dry such as a pair of cute rainboots, a waterproof jacket, and a fun umbrella.

Add on Lighter Layers
Since the temperatures are warming up slightly, you’re going to want to layer up with lighter pieces. Thinner knits will keep you warm but will be more breathable. You’ll want pieces that will keep you warm but you’ll be able to take off if the day gets warmer than expected.
Layer on a Scarf
During the fall, winter, and spring – scarves are one of my favourite pieces to add a bit of colour and comfort to an outfit. During spring, add in soft pastels and prints to liven up your style.
Pack along Gloves
It’s still a bit chilly out, and if there’s one thing I hate about cold weather it’s how cold my hands get! One thing I pack around with me is a pair of gloves in order to keep my hands warm as can be, while also adding a fun element to my look.
