Come end of January I always get a little, actually REALLY, tired of my Winter wardrobe. Most likely because in August I am so excited about my new Fall purchases that I start wearing sweaters and boots way too early. No wonder I am bored of oversized knits already.
So to combat the Winter blahs, both in terms of wardrobe and mood, I try to restyle items I already have in my closet. I like to get my Spring wardrobe from storage and so I can start mixing Spring pieces with my Winter wardrobe to create new looks. Plus it adds a little colour to my very grey Winter wardobe which makes me happy in these last few dark, cold and oh so long Winter months.
Below I have included some ideas on how you can start to mix and match your Spring and Winter wardrobes. So get creative and have fun.
1. Try a spring blouse as a layer under a sweater
I went with a sheer floral print here but a bold colour would be great as well. Scroll down to see how I wore a bright yellow blouse as a layer. The simple addition of a a light blouse can really change the look of a sweater and make it a little more feminine.
Accessories always make a tried and true outfit feel new again. I like to play with bold colours as Spring approaches to help add a little something to my tired winter outfits. This Kate Spade necklace was a Winners find a few years ago and has been a staple for me. I love to pair it with other bold colours, like this yellow blouse and it works great with pale pink as well.
3. Throw on a blazer in a bold colour over your chunky knit
I wear ALOT of grey in the winter. A bold blazer paired over a chunky knit is a great way to add some more colour. Plus this yellow makes me happy and it somehow helps makes Spring seem a little closer than it really is. I mean, April…………
I like this look best with monochromatic layers underneath, grey works with pretty much every bold colour.
4. Play with pastels
I love that the blush and lavender hues are trending this Spring. But you do not need to wait for Spring to start wearing pastels. A pastel cardi or blazer pairs great with Winter neutrals, especially grey. And they just make you feel pretty on a blah Winter day.
5. Swap your dark wash denim for lighter hues
I find that bringing lighter coloured denim into my wardrobe this time of year makes a huge difference. As silly as it sounds, and my husband will never understand, but the wash can transform an entire look. A lighter denim tends to lighten up whole look which is exactly what I am looking for as we head into the last half of Winter and I am so tired of my go to Winter looks. I can basically pair different denim with the same old sweaters and it feels new again. And I LOVE light denim with black and darker greys.
