Crop It with Seasonal Transition Pieces

Seasonal Transition Pieces

Even though we are neck deep in winter it’s time to start thinking about seasonal transition pieces- wardrobe pieces that you can wear now and into Spring.

The best way to dip your toes into Spring is to slowly start incorporating some key-trends into your look now.  It will make the seasonal transition easier plus you’ll be 1/2 way through your Spring shopping before the season even begins!

Fashion Week gave us a glimpse into the trends we’ll be wearing this coming Spring and floral dresses are a key trend for SS18

I have a secret to share, a sure fire trick to making an easy transition from winter to spring…..cropped sweaters.

A cropped sweater PLUS a flouncy Spring dress is in-between season MAGIC!

A cozy cropped sweater makes a warm weather dress work for the cooler season – just add ankle boots and tights or nylons.  In a couple months when the weather starts warming up ditch the sweater, tights and boots and add a sneaker, sandals or heels to Springify the look.

It’s an effortlessly hip take on layering that will help you transition stylishly into spring PLUS with all the manic weather we’ve been having you’ll be prepared for warmer days.

Stylist’s NOTE: The sweater and dress I am wearing are sold as a set but you can achieve this look easily with separates.

  1. Oh, great idea! I think another tip is to add bright colors to the outfit. Winter colors are often subdued. Adding colors will definitely add some flair, I think. Just my 2 cents but I really do not know much about fashion.

  2. Cropped sweaters scare me usually but you have pulled his off beautifully and I think I could give them a go with this sort of styling as a skirt will skim all the bits a cropped top exposes which end up scaring me. You look really great 🙂

    1. Lets be honest- I’m not wearing a crop sweater without something under it LOL but they make great layering pieces!

  3. That is such a pretty dress! The whole outfit, including the sweater, looks absolutely awesome on you! 🙂 I love how black can blend into almost any other in fashion.

  4. I like the bright pattern on the skirt but also the fact that this outfit is versatile – it can be worn to meet customers and for a quick drink with friends after work, or even to the mall. Nice clutch.

  5. That is such a cute dress, Christie! I think it would make for a perfect Winter >> Spring transition for sure! With winter weather disappearing quickly where I live, it’s nice to have outfits that go from one season to the other smoothly 😉

  6. I love this outfit! I’ve been wearing some of my favorite dresses with sweaters in those in between kind of seasons and I love it but not all of them look right. Perhaps I need to go with my more cropped/shorter sweaters!
