It Feels Like Winter
How to wear Spring clothes when it feels like Winter is something I keep asking myself each and every day. Why you ask? Well because I am soooo over Winter. I have mentioned I love a good sweater, but honestly I don’t get that excited about sweater weather. Probably because we get sweater weather over 70% of the year. Right now, the sweater weather needs to go. I don’t want to wear my puffy coat anymore, I want Spring weather. Chicago get your sh!t together.
However, I did figure out a way to wear cute Spring clothes when it feels like Winter. It’s all about repurposing those Spring clothes a little and thinking outside of the box. So, if it feels like Winter wherever you live, but you are itching to wear Spring clothes, here are my tips.
How To Wear Spring Clothes When It Feels Like Winter
Pick out that Spring item.
First of all, pick out that Spring piece you are wanting to wear so badly! For me, I wanted an excuse to wear this white dress. Isn’t it the cutest dress to wear on a tropical getaway or on a dock at a lakehouse? Or an amazing European getaway like Santorini?
Cover the Skin.
Chances are there is some level of skin exposure if you are picking out a Spring item. Let’s cover them. If it is Winter, we for sure don’t want to freeze ourselves because our skin is exposed. Wearing a light-fabric long sleeve is always my go-to if my arms are exposed. Keep it basic. If your legs are exposed, wear boots. I usually go for over the knee boots, but this time the weather decided to somewhat cooperate and so booties it is!
Don’t be afraid to layer! The long sleeve tee is a good layering piece, but it doesn’t hurt to add another. I always love to use Spring-like outerwear as my final layering, like a good denim jacket. It gives the outfit a Spring vibe while staying warm. If you want, you can add a scarf.
Hopefully this helps if you are itching to wear Spring clothes like I am. Chicago can be so unpredictable and we are almost in April already! But it is kind of fun to think outside the box when it comes to styling these Spring pieces.
