No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow. As you welcome it, you need to make sure your wardrobe boasts a fashionable blend of the best of both seasons. After all, the transition from the chilly weather to the season of flowers is relaxed and gradual… and your fashion game, too, needs to follow suit. So no need to entirely bid adieu to your stylish winter jackets and other winter clothes in spring. Just aim for a stylish mix-and-match. Go ahead and take some cues from our pro tips to ace spring fashion this year!
Utilise what you can
Borrow elements from your winter outfits to cobble together a unique spring ensemble. For instance, your light winter jackets, such as the Vero Moda Women Textured Collared Jacket with its classy lapel collar and fabric belt, can be a perfect foil to an out-and-out floral top. Add some nude pumps and a pastel scarf, and you’re good to go on a relaxed date with your BFFs! Winter coats, scarves, belts and your beloved cotton turtleneck (that’s probably been the bedrock of so many of your winter looks) will all work equally well with the vibrancy of spring fashion.
In the meantime, don’t forget to ensure the rest of your winter collection gets a break, safely (and neatly) tucked away into a dry and clean trunk or box. Yes, all the heavy coats, fur-lined jackets and fancy woolen caps and boots must go to make space for your all-new, vibrant spring compilation!
Blend the two seasons
Your spring shopping list may include soft-hued pastel cottons along with a range of floral print pieces. But to truly stand out, dare to work them out into a happy blend with your winter wear from last season. Go ahead, mix and match the bright spring shades with bold winter hues. Check out the Van Heusen Women Printed Jacket that comes with attractive patchwork prints, drop shoulders, comfortable long sleeves, and a stylish elasticated hemline. It can work perfectly well with plain pastel palazzos and the evergreen white sneakers. Also, keep in mind that the simple and elegant winter charm works well with attractive flowery prints – ideal for a brunch date or an afternoon tea get-together. And not to forget – conventional winter cuts combined with experimental spring looks are sure to charm everyone at a Saturday cocktail dinner.
However much the sun may stay around the whole day, there is always that elusive nip in the air that may catch you unawares. At such times, layers are your best friend. A light coat or jacket can go a long way in keeping you well, despite the changing weather. Try out the CODE Women Solid Regular Fit Casual Jacket that comes in a classy shiny blue with a spread collar, patch pockets and a striking open-front construction as your additional layer. It effortlessly pairs up with simple white trousers to create a perfect OOTD!
While your spring look may be all bright and light, adding in a layer of demure warmth also helps in striking the perfect style balance. The all-black GINGER Women Solid Washed Cropped Denim Jacket has several stylish pluses – patch pockets, a spread collar and button closure on a solid washed fabric. Needless to say, it makes the ideal companion to your entire wardrobe of flowery tops and dresses.
Start adding some colour
What’s a spring season without colour? Think bold, bright, vibrant and oh-so-pretty! Yes, opt for anything that spells spring – flowery skirts, perky tops and colourful bags and shoes! Make a start with the Vero Moda Women Floral Printed A-line Skirt. This chic piece with a zip closure and midi profile epitomises the season of flowers like no other. There is so much choice in winter wear for women that you can easily find something that matches this skirt – a nice peach-pink overcoat or a classy scarf in muted shades, for instance!
Embrace dresses and skirts
You may find you’re turning the degrees up a few notches higher than what they should be if you choose to go this route! And why not? Opt for a few light-hued dresses and skirts for your spring wardrobe. Keep comfort as key and then decide what you need to buy to avoid an unnecessary overload that you may end up not using at all! You can check out this casual A-line dress option – the Fame Forever Women Printed Belt Detail A-line Dress. With its cool print and soothing colour, it’ll do its bit in keeping you spring fashion forward every time! And it’s versatile, too – you can choose to pair it with either sandals or sneakers. Add a simple handheld bag to amp up the style metre further.
Try light and bright bottoms
Keep the bottoms in light hues to match the weather and your mood. You can team up just about anything with white or cream trousers or denims, and it’s guaranteed to work. A good choice is a pair of Solid Button-up Flared Jeans in pure white from Fame Forever. With a practical high waist, stylish button-up front, five pockets for all your odds and ends and a raw hip hem, this one truly does look and feel in trend!
“Bright” is spring’s middle name, and we just can’t do without our vibrant floral-print clothes and accessories either! Try the Fame Forever Women Floral Printed Slip-On Trousers as an option. They have a mid-waist silhouette but remain comfortable through the day thanks to the elasticated waistband and fabric belt closure. If not this one, then any ladies jacket with busy, colourful prints can make a great addition to your spring outfit! Add a cross-body bag and casual sneakers to complete your look.
Some more spring fashion tips to try out:

- Opt for long-sleeved dresses and tops for an elegant look and to also be weather ready! Or go for a strappy summer dress over a white tee or turtleneck. Don’t forget matching leggings to keep up the warmth!
- White sneakers can be your best bet when it comes to footwear – they keep you snug while following the light-hued spring look!
- Choosing to keep your outfit simple? Simply add bright-coloured socks with fun prints and pair them with chunky sandals to make an impactful style statement with minimal effort!
