Transition to Spring/Summer

The fashion woes of a smooth transition from winter to spring/summer can be difficult. One hurdle tends to be the days where the air has a chill early morning only to return in the evening. Enter, prime time for layering. The second obstacle presents itself when all the great pieces you have invested in are pushed to the back of the closet and your last season’s spring wear appears to be dated. What’s a girl to do?!

We’ve done our research to help you transition fall pieces to spring and what 2012 spring season trends will make a comeback.

A new spin on the bohemian vibe is eastern Asian inspired fabrics. Our new Alina heel by Sam Edelman looks strikingly similar to what the runway paired with this look.

Black and white graphics will be making statements everywhere. Keep your lighter fabrics in these contrasting colors. Restricted’s Gorgeous combines the trend in one comfy wedge.

Pantone crowned emerald the 2013 color of the year. Not only is wearing head-to-toe color chic, but we say, if you’re going to do it, go green in our Diba Dream of You cork wedge!

Ankle booties topped Fall’s trend lists but don’t put them in storage just yet. For temperature roller coaster days, ditch the ones with heavy metal or bulky zippers and wear a classic, simple pair. Our Calvin Klein Beca does just that and is 50% off now!

Army green was a Fall favorite. Don’t surrender the color, just lighten it up by pairing with bright accessories. We suggest the Miley, our ivory crossbody.

Winter weather boots were good for snow and insulation but April showers are upon us. Keep them front and center in your closet for puddle splashing!

Burgundy was a darling and again, lighter fabrics paired with pastels is a stunning transition look.

It’s safe to say you can pack up your chunky, wool infinity scarves. Warm days and chilly nights are still upon us though. Go ahead and wear your spring dress but pack a silk scarf to wrap up in for an evening dinner.

White is a Southern favorite but a warm weather staple nationwide. Pair with the latest trend, tri-tone shoes for a pop of color. The Nicole Archer incorporates pastels and the color blocking, tri-tone affect.

But wait! Don’t ditch your 2012 spring’s maxi, floral pattern or last year’s pantone queen, orange pieces either! A little fashion birdie shared with us that those trends will be warmly welcomed this spring/summer. What are your transition tricks? We hope you found ours helpful enough to share with friends.
