Slowly segue into colour
If you’re most comfortable in winter’s blacks and greys, no need to jump right in to bright spring colours. Start by adding a bright accessory in a colour that you love, then add a few more pieces in that same colour as it gets deeper into spring, says wardrobe stylist, Dina Scherer. “Working with a monochromatic scheme can add elegance without the danger of not mixing the right colours together,” she says. “It allows you to play with colour but still wear neutrals.” Once you get used to a more colourful look, start playing around with complementary combinations, like brown and blue, or red and green to make a bigger statement, she says.
Try a bright bottom
Ready to take the plunge into colour? Instead of starting with a bright top, pull on a coloured pant or skirt, suggests fashion stylist, Lauren Rothman. “Whether it’s ballet pink or fuchsia, doing that colour on the bottom is edgier – a little more unexpected,” she says. Pair it with black boots and tights while you transition into spring.
Dig out your white jeans
Bring out your white pants as soon as the weather starts warming up. Keep them season-appropriate during chillier transition months by pairing them with a black knit sweater instead of your usual summer brights, says Rothman. “That’s a fresh, crisp look,” she says.
