Early Spring Transitional Looks Incorporating Winter and Spring Fashion

The weather has been pretty grey here in New York City. I like the color, just not in my skies. I think the sun has been out a handful of times in the past week making my Vitamin D3 drops and Philips goLite Energy Light crucial for survival. I really miss the feeling of sunshine and warm breezes.

This is probably the reason why I found myself lovingly staring at this outfit from J. Crew. Okay, maybe it was the shoes, I love the shoes despite the fact that they would look horrible on me. I just miss seeing my ankles and feet and am tired of having so much of my body tucked away to shield me from the elements.

The second the weather gets warmer I am going to be out the door in my flats, lightweight jackets, and exposed ankles, I promise you that. In fact, admittedly, if the weather hits 45 I find myself often pushing the season and being terribly underdressed simply because I can't stand bundling up anymore.

That said, in my enthusiasm for warmer weather to come, I put some early spring transitional looks that mix both winter and spring pieces to create outfits that can work for early spring days where you are craving change. These outfits will also work for you lucky ducks who have the luxury of not living somewhere so seasonal. I really envy you right now.

When creating transitional looks for early spring, shoes will probably be the biggest change you will make. It's not time for sandals just yet, but swapping out your cold weather boots and shoes for styles that are more open will make a big difference.

I styled this outfit for early spring using these open toe booties from Vince Camuto that I paired with cropped jeans from J. Crew. I added this tunic blouse from Equipment and layered a cashmere slouchy pullover sweater from Theory over it. The mix of a sweater layered over a blouse paired cropped jeans and peep-toe booties is what gives the outfit an early spring transitional look. Adding to the it, I used a scarf from Steve Madden that can replace a jacket or be paired with one if a jacket is needed. Lastly, I finished the outfit with a cognac bag from Rebecca Minkoff, cuff from Banana Republic and drop earrings from Kendra Scott.

I find having gloves and a scarf on hand incredibly useful in the early spring. Sometimes that little bit of warmth can make a huge difference, especially if it is windy or the sun is in and out all day. I also love the usefulness of a denim jacket for light coverage. Layers are so crucial this time of year.

I styled the above look with a cropped pair of Elie Tahari trousers with a striped breton from Theory and layered a denim J. Crew jacket over it. I finished the outfit with a scarf from Nordstrom, a silver metallic bag from Vince Camuto, red loafers from Gucci, black leather gloves from Fownes Brothers and triad hoops from Stella & Dot.

Outfit #3

In this last look I am showing how a lightweight coat can work for early spring when it is paired with warmer weather pieces. I styled this Ted Baker short wrap coat with a pair of boyfriend jeans from Madwell, cap sleeve knit top from Reiss and my favorite d'orsay pumps from Sam Edelman. I finished the look with a orange satchel from MICHAEL Michael Kors, a printed scarf from Givenchy, Adriana Orsini double strand rose gold necklace, rose gold earrings from Gorjana and sunglasses from Gentle Monster.

As you prepare for the season to come, I hope these transitional looks, that borrow from spring and winter, will help you come up with some ideas for your own wardrobe.
