Your Guide to Transitioning Your Wardrobe Into A New Season

As the days grow longer and the weather begins to warm, it's time to bid farewell to bulky winter layers and move into the lighter evenings and longer days with a spring in our step! Transitioning your wardrobe from the chill of winter to the still-chilly-but-slightly-warmer weather of a new season is an opportunity to infuse your style with lighter fabrics, vibrant colours, and playful prints that will sing you into spring. 


As always, we urge you to buy better, buy wisely, and buy for longer to really make the most out of your clothes. By purchasing pieces that have the ability to transition from winter to spring (via those weird in-between days of March), we can really make the most out of our wardrobes. Here are our three top tips to help you do so.

  1. Lots of lovely layers: One of the most important tools of transitioning your wardrobe from winter to spring is to master the art of layering. Start by incorporating lightweight pieces that can easily be layered for warmth on cooler days and removed when the sun is shining. Consider pairing your comfiest, cosiest sweater (like this one, by Cara & The Sky), with a lightweight jacket or cardigan for added versatility.

    Experiment with different textures and lengths to create depth and visual interest in your outfits. Layering allows you to adapt to the crazily changing temperatures of the English weather throughout the day, while still looking effortlessly put-together.

  2. All about Accessories. The easiest way to switch up an outfit without breaking the bank is to opt for seasonal accessories; your secret weapon when it comes to transitioning your wardrobe from winter to spring. As you shed the heavy scarves and gloves of winter, adapt to lighter accessories that add a touch of freshness and spring air to your look.

    Swap out your winter boots for some lighter trainers, or perhaps
    a pair of Kitty Clogs Klassiks that are great all year round but even more perfect for warmer weather. Now, we believe colour is for ALL seasons, but add a pop of brighter (maybe a pastel?) colour with statement jewellery or a silk scarf to instantly give your outfit a spring-time twist.

    Accessories are the perfect way to adapt your winter staples to the changing season and add a playful touch to your style as the sun emerges from behind the winter clouds.

  3. Quality over quantity. Investing in high-quality basics is essential for creating a versatile wardrobe that can easily transition from season to season. As you update your wardrobe for spring, focus on investing in timeless pieces that will stand the wear-and-tear of daily life (you know what we mean: school-runs, walking the dog, a slightly dodgy washing machine…).

    Opt for classic silhouettes and neutral colours that can be mixed and matched with ease. A well-fitted pair of jeans, a crisp white tee, and a gentle jacket
    like the All Eyes On You Blazer from IA London are all wardrobe staples that can be styled in countless ways for both winter and spring. By investing in high-quality basics, you'll build a wardrobe foundation that will serve you well for many years and many seasons to come.
