As the end of winter approaches, it’s natural to start itching to break out the floral patterns, shorter dresses and sandals. Unfortunately, often Mother Nature has a different idea about what the ideal wardrobe should look like. Finding spring outfit ideas that can function as transitional pieces when the weather can go from sunny skies to a downpour in a matter of minutes can be a tricky endeavor; but with some key staples in your wardrobe, you’ll be ready for anything! Keep reading for tips and ideas from Pink Lily about how to be the most stylish girl around this season.
Rain, rain go away (unless you have a super cute pullover to show off this spring)! When the weather transitions so quickly from rain to sunshine, having easy to throw on transitional pieces like a stylish rain pullover to protect you from the elements are a must.
Rain gear doesn’t have to be bulky, unflattering and something you dread wearing. Try incorporating transitional pieces that fit your style — opt for fun colors, patterns and styles that fit seamlessly into your wardrobe and look just as cute thrown over a pair of jeans or spring dress should the weather require it. A hooded pullover can be a great choice for protecting your hair, and if it has a discreet cargo pocket it will keep your essentials — like your phone — dry and safe, too! For an even more personalized look, opt for a brightly-colored monogrammed rain jacket or perfectly pairable pastel pullover for an all-weather embracing transitional piece.
Springtime Comfy Chic
Even when it’s not raining, being prepared for changes in temperature during the springtime is a must. Layering options, like comfy lightweight pullovers, make the perfect transitional pieces. As you’re searching for fun spring outfit ideas, throwing an oversized, casual pullover over a pair of leggings and boots or jeans makes the perfect look for a girls day.
Choosing fun layering transitional pieces with a kangaroo pocket and a hood are especially great for unpredictable weather and are perfect for moving your everyday outfits from winter comfort to springtime chic. Opt for soft colors or a fun floral print to give your look an even more fun seasonal look and feel. Sometimes when spring approaches, you may not be ready to let go of the comfortable winter clothing, and layering pieces like a cowl neck pullover that help make the transition a breeze.
Damsel in Distressed Jeans
Distressed jeans or leggings are the perfect foundation transitional pieces for unpredictable weather. They’ll keep your legs warm in cooler weather, while showing a bit of skin and style for when the sun peeks out. Not to mention, opting for an easy-to-wear pant means being able to easily cuff your jeans if the rain starts to come down. Or, simply start your day with some fitted cuffed jeans and booties for a trendy, weather-appropriate look. We love jeans year-round and making them work for the season is easy and practical!
The distressed look is just edgy enough to give an otherwise feminine outfit a little bit of flair and looks great dressed up or down. Opting for a pair of colored or black jeans also offers a lot of versatility for a spring outfit idea. Or, embrace the season by pairing a pair of distressed capri pants with an oversized top for a laid back, comfortable look.
Cap it Off
Nothing says springtime like the start of baseball season! Try adding a cute, feminine baseball cap to a casual weekend outfit can be both a nod to America’s favorite seasonal pastime and a totally practical transitional piece for the often unpredictable weather that accompanies the spring.
There are many styles of baseball caps and finding one that fits your personal style is simple. Go for some extra girl flair in a soft pink monogrammed cap or show a little sass and sweetness in a feminine mint-colored logo hat. If your easy weekend style is more laid back and tomboy-esque, a fun trucker hat will keep the sun or rain off your face while completing the perfect spring outfit.
No matter which hat you choose, you’ll be grateful for the ease of wear and practicality of a staple baseball cap in your wardrobe. It’s the perfect accessory for capping off fun, casual spring outfit ideas.
Cute & Comfy
It’s easy to neglect your feet when you’re getting dressed in the springtime and you’re wary of the weather. That’s why sneakers are the perfect go-to footwear that will work seamlessly with all of your spring outfit ideas. Sneakers are easy to throw on, look chic and put together and will keep your feet warmer and more protected than a summer strappy sandal and bring a casual vibe to your favorite looks. Sneakers are easy to love year-round, but are especially perfect and practical as transitional pieces during the spring - and even make it easy for you to get some exercise in!
What’s especially fun about pairing spring sneakers as transitional pieces with dresses, pants, skirts and leggings, is they can show a little more skin and have a lighter feel than shoes you might opt to rock during the colder months. Your spring outfits will instantly feel a bit more fun and casual with a pair of sneakers featuring glitter or cool patterns.
