Good news, fair weather babes: Spring is officially here and it’s finally time to shed those extra winter layers! But don’t stash away your cozy sweaters *too* fast, because there are actually plenty of ways to keep your favorite staples in springtime rotation. Scroll on to see how to stylishly switch up your winter wardrobe to make it fresh and polished for the new season.

Leather Jacket

There’s no reason to retire your leather jacket (faux or no) just because the seasons have changed. Instead, give your staple outer layer a French-girl-meets-Sporty-Spice look while embracing the best trends of 2018. Joggers? Check. Crop top? Check. Silk scarf? Oui, oui!

Go-To Sweater

This fuzzy friend got you through the chilliest winter days, and now it’s time for a sleek springtime switch-up. Your fave sweater will take on a sassy new life when you pair it with white pumps, a denim mini, and that circle bag you’ve been eyeing for as long as you can remember.

Long-Sleeve Dress

Keep your long-sleeve winter frock, but swap out the cold-weather accessories for springtime-worthy accents. Statement earrings, an exotic clutch, and playful sandals or slides are sure to revitalize your winter florals with a fresh bloom of style.

Trench Coat

Layers are always a good idea, which is why the trench should stay. It’s dressy yet practical, so keeping this versatile winter coat in your springtime rotation is a no-brainer. Plus, plaid is totally IN right now. Rock your iconic outerwear with more patterns, a pop of magic slipper color, and a classic white blouse.

Ankle Boots

They kept your feet warm, dry, and stylin’ all winter, and we think they should stay a while longer. Revive your staple booties with a tropical top, wide-leg overalls, and a flattering straw hat for some serious springtime chic that’s guaranteed to put a pep in your step.
