How to Transition Your Capsule Wardrobe from Winter to Spring

how to transition your capsule wardrobe from winter to spring

When you set up your capsule wardrobes based on the season, it can get a little difficult in the weird in between times. Here in North Alabama, there are definitely days in late February/early March where we could bust out the barbecue and then days when I’m running to wrap up in an extra blanket or two. If this sounds like your current climate situation, I would recommend swapping out a few of your winter pieces for more springlike items and to ease your capsule into warmer weather. You don’t want to pack up your cozy sweaters and stow them away only to sheepishly pull them back out on one of those random frigid mornings!

But swaps don’t have to just be about temperature control! After months of dark hues, maybe you want to throw in a pastel or two. If you’re drawn too chunky cocktail rings and statement necklaces for winter party season, maybe you want to switch out for something more dainty! Just because capsule wardrobes help us embrace minimalism doesn’t mean BORING. Have fun with it!

Here are 12 swaps you can make to turn your winter wardrobe into a WINTER-TO SPRING wardrobe — 

Swap a turtleneck for a vintage inspired tee shirt.

Swap dangly statement earrings for dainty geometric studs.

Swap your chunky knit scarf for a silk scarf.

Swap every day pearls for every day hoops.

Swap a parka for a polka dot rain coat.

Swap black hoodie for a creme fleece pullover.

Swap heavy duty flannel for a lighter plaid option.

Swap a midi skirt for a mini.

Swap a white button-down for a white crop top.

Swap a chunky knit sweater for your lightweight crewneck sweater

and dark colored pieces for WHITE.

Finally, for those super unseasonably warm days where you just want to go for it, swap black skinnies for black shorts!

Have you ever tried seasonal capsule wardrobes? Any more advice for transitioning from one season to the next?
