Spring Forward into Spring with Your Best Transitional Wardrobe 


Stop me if this sounds familiar: on Monday, it’s 62 with a 100% chance of thunderstorms. On Tuesday, it’s 67, and a tornado warning or two might pop up. When Wednesday rolls around, the temp drops to 46, but the rain chances linger. Yet Thursday drops even farther to 33, while rain becomes snow showers. On Friday, the sun peeks its head out to warm us back up to 68, Saturday carries with it a 100% chance of sunshine with no clouds in sight as the temp climbs to 72, and by Sunday, it’s a balmy 80 degrees. 


If you’re from Arkansas (or perhaps even if you’ve just visited), this is what spring looks like. A constant rollercoaster for those of us trying to settle on wardrobe choices for the day, and a nightmare of a headache for those poor, poor weather people on KNWA who get blamed for everything (seriously, guys- who could possibly predict this chaos reliably!?). 


So what do we do then to balance the ever-changing forecast with our need to put our best fashion foot forward? Mix it up of course:


Pair up a dress for less stress

Like this comfy purple dress + white blazer

 

This epitome of spring, a short pink flower + chunky cardigan

 

Just peachy + crop flares

 

Leopard print + a remedy tee

 

Possibly my fav on the list, this gorgeous embroidered number + crop jacket

 

This sweet blue choice + crop straight legs

 

A darker tie-dye + black ballet wrap

 

Or a long pink flower + bomber jacket 

 

A shirt under, a heavier piece over, or a pair of pants can solve your sartorial woes! 

 

Go for a one-piece

An adorable denim romper

 

Or a sexy black romper

 

Either of which will be cooler denim choices (but not too cool) because they combine short with long

Even a pink linen romper + heavier black jean jacket

 

Choose a matching set 

In a comfy, breathable pink

 

 

In a definitely before Labor Day white that's therefore light

 

 

Or a cooler purple (THE color of 2022)

 

 

Even a set of elongating stripes in a lighter material and cooler crop

 

 

Let the fabric breathe

Big sleeves + denim shorts will keep your arms air conditioned

 

 

Holes in the sweater fabric + a tennis skirt will keep you from overheating 

 

 

Plaid bottoms + a yellow crop are light enough in color and thinner materials to get you through the day 

 

 

And a lighter sweater via crop or embellished cutouts can be paired with flares to keep you cozy in the colder mornings but airy enough for noon heat 

 

 

Combine long tops with short bottoms or vice versa 

Like this very happy pullover + biker short

 

 

Matching faux leather set

 

Or if the matchy-matchy vibe isn’t your thing, this black crop + faux leather shorts

 

 

Or the flipside- gray short sleeves + heart leggings

 

 

Purple tank + long white ribs

 

 

Even a matching set in black 

 

 

Choose a spring print to channel spring

We have a classy and fun pink blazer that would go great with a pair of loose-fit white jeans

 

 

There’s a tie-dye dress + white crop underneath 

 

 

Or why not this white dress that screams the season + Morrison denim with plaid detail underneath 

 

 

Layer it up (you can always take some of it off later)

Go for this satin cami + black cardigan + a wide leg jean

 

 

My second fav on the list, blue stripe light pullover + pink legging + stone wash denim

 

 

Or a brown light thermal + cardigan + crop 



 

In the end, check the weather when planning outfits the night before, but keep in mind that spring is as prone to change her mind as we women are, and refrain from berating the poor meteorologists. They deserve a break.
