The transition from winter fashion to spring fashion (like the weather) isn’t always instantaneous but instead a gradual process. When the weather can be sunny one moment and then rainy and cold the next, it’s important to dress for whatever season comes your way!
Happy first day of March! Lately we have been having some wonderful sunny weather, and it’s getting me super excited for springtime! But then out of nowhere it seems when I get my hopes up the dark clouds appear and it rains and gets really cold again. It’s that time of year where the weather struggles with itself and can’t decide if it’s going to be winter or spring. Pretty sure a few years ago it snowed sometime during March here in Georgia (of all places)! I’m really hoping that the groundhog was correct and that spring will in fact arrive earlier this year, but until then I’ve got a few tips to share that will help us all stay stylish rain or shine.
Layers. This may not always seem practical when it’s a nice day, but layering pieces that are light in color and/or fabric can bring your outfit out of the winter funk yet still keep you cozy and/or dry if necessary. So trade out your winter coat for a trench coat or cardigan, and replace your dark and thicker sweaters with lighter and thinner tops. And if you don’t need a layer throughout the day you can simply remove it!
Warm(er) Accessories. I know it sounds crazy to still use blanket scarves, but they are a much easier option to add/remove to your outfit than a sweater can be if the sun is out but it’s still a little breezy or chilly for you. And if you end up not wanting to wear it, it can easily be stored in your handbag. Hats can also be great for this time of year since it can shield your face from the sun or keep your hair from becoming a victim to the wind or rain.
Casual updo hairstyles. If you’ve been wanting to learn how to braid or how to put your hair up in the “perfect” top knot, this is the perfect time to practice! Although it isn’t hot and humid quite yet, by practicing these hairstyles now you can learn how to get quicker at them in time for summer and keep your hair in place (or dry) now for the random rainy and windy days that are bound to come up out of no where if you choose not to wear a hat. In these pictures I had curled my hair but because of the wind I wanted to keep my hair from flying all over the place and getting really tangled. So rather than fight with my hair and having it constantly stuck on my lipstick (the struggle is real!) I tied it back into a low ponytail and I think it worked even better for this casual look.
Hopefully these will inspire your next outfit, no matter what the weather looks like outside! What are some tips you follow to stay stylish while the weather transitions? Thanks for reading!
