How To Wear Your Spring Clothes When It Still Feels Like Winter

Sometimes the weather doesn’t always get the memo that it’s spring. Figuring out what to wear during this “it’s spring but doesn’t quite feel like it” time is challenging. You want to wear your spring clothes, of course, but heading outside in skirts and sandals while stomping around in the snow could look just a little silly. So what do you do? Here are some practical tips on how to wear your spring clothes when it still feels like winter outside!

1. Mix florals with edgy pieces

Mixing your spring pieces with your edgier pieces is going to balance out your look and give you the perfect spring/cold weather mix.

Floral dresses with combat boots and motorcycle jackets are a perfect starter combination for this! Even if you don’t have a floral dress (though you should), any material that is light and flowy will balance out nicely with dark, leather pieces.

2. Layer with white jeans

Black doesn’t have to be totally out of the picture come spring, but white is a fresh color that works better for this spring season while still keeping your legs warm.

Layering up with lighter tones and pastels keeps your outfit looking fresh!

3. Pair your shorter dresses with a long coat

If you have short skirts and dresses that you’re anxious to pull out, you can still provide your legs with some extra coverage by pairing those pieces with an extra-long trench coat.

The long + short combination is not only a cool fashion juxtaposition, but it will keep you looking current with the weather instead of clueless!

4. Balance your textures

Have a big comfy sweater you’ve been dying to curl up in? Balance out the cold weather staple by pairing it with a pretty spring skirt.

Chic, warm for the colder weather, and spring-appropriate all in one!

5. Wear your pastels

By decking yourself out in all the spring colors, it’s going to be pretty hard for someone to think that you’re still stuck in winter. Even if those pastel pieces are heavy sweaters, jeans, and thick coats!

6. Embrace your close-toed shoes

It might be time to pack away your furry winter boots, but there are still lots of great options to keep your feet warm while looking great for spring.

Booties, flats, sneakers, and heels (if you’re feeling daring) make great options. Bonus points for a shoe that’s in an eye-catching color. However, you can never go wrong with white for spring!
