Tips on transitioning your wardrobe from winter to spring

The warmer months are almost here, but there is still a chill in the air. Here are some tips on how to stylishly transition from winter to spring

Incorporate florals or prints

Winter is on its way out, so now is the time to incorporate colourful prints into your outfits. We love this look from Fabrosanz – all the items are versatile and can be paired with other items.

Keep your over-sized scarf

Now that winter is over, the office air-con wars are about to start. Don’t get involved – keep a large scarf behind your chair that will function as a mini-blanket when sitting down an your desk and that you can take with you when going out for drinks after work.

ELLE Beauty and Lifestyle Director Asanda Sizani says: “It’s effortlessly stylish. You can use it as a mini-blankie at work and throw it on when leaving the office,” she says.

Keep your feet warm

The mornings and evenings are still a bit chilly at the moment. Wearing heels or open-toe shoes with a cute pair of socks is a suitable trend for all seasons. As with many styles, the trick is to wear it with elegance.

Socks are a great way to add a fun, playful and whimsical touch to your look. Sizani says: “Add a touch of whimsy when wearing loafers or any type of shoe that shows ankles or toes.”

A bright handbag

A good-quality handbag is a must-have for any woman. It’s important to use different bags so that they don’t get worn out. A bright clutch or handbag will brighten up your look and give you that “spring” feel.
