Transition from Winter to Spring with Awesome Street Style

Spring Street Style Secrets

With warm weather hopefully just around the corner, I keep dreaming about my favorite Spring staples to pull out from the back of my closet.  It was a long winter wearing puffy jackets.  I’m ready for windbreakers, leather jackets, short skirts, and shorts!  At this time of year when the weather is still fairly unpredictable, (especially in some regions!) I like to wear layers.  Layering smart can help create some pretty chic street style.

I wore the above look to brunch and it was perfect.  I combined plaid and leather and sparkles, creating a look that was equal parts casual, edgy, and feminine.  This is the time to slowly transition from boots to sneakers…and then finally to sandals when the temperature starts rising!

I livened up my dark fall colors (i.e. black jacket and navy plaid shirt) by wearing fun Spring-y accessories like the bold pink handbag and sparkly pink sneakers.  Recently I’ve been obsessed with my extra large silver hoop earrings because they make every look a bit more boho.  I had more than enough excitement going on in this look so I kept my other jewelry minimal.

I wore this look out to brunch on the weekend.  When I don’t want to spend an hour getting ready, I take a few shortcuts.  I cut out hair prep time by doing my hair in a ponytail.  The big silver hoop earrings help make me look stylish without any added primping time.  I can jump out of bed and into the car in ten minutes or less with this look.

In the Spring, it’s easy to keep makeup minimal.  All you need is a freshly washed face a little mascara and a pink tint on your lips.

Here are six items to help you recreate this Spring Street Style look:

5 Black Leather Jackets to Wear When you Ditch your Winter Coats

I know that it hasn’t stopped snowing everywhere yet, but at some point it has to right? Finally it will be time to take off the bulky layers and downsize to a light Spring jacket. This black leather jacket from Zara is one of my go-to’s. It goes with everything and makes any of my “feminine/girly” looks just a touch edgier.  Plus, black on black is always a great idea.

She’s so rocker chic in a black leather jacket and a pony tail with her luscious green locks.

I’d still say she should have stuck with blonde, but heck she’s only 27…wouldn’t want to do this at 47.

Love,
