So, you splurged and purchased winter‘s most coveted pieces and now you want more mileage out of them as spring approaches. Fair enough. It’s not impossible to keep wearing most of them with just a few simple tweak to the items you’ll pair them with. Find new inspirations for these four key pieces below.
1. The Military Boot:
They helped you’ll trudge through the snow and now they’ll make pretty little florals seem less dainty. Pair them with a favourite floral print dress (vintage or a la Forever 21) and a jean jacket. Skip the tights and throw on a chunky or bold coloured sock instead.
2. Cable Knit Sweater:
Winter’s staple item kept you extra warm, cozy and not to mention, stylish by the fireplace and now it will double as the top layer to your Sunday brunch get-up. Skip the jacket and wear this piece with jeans or a long skirt a la spring 2011 runway. Belt it for a more finished and streamlined effect.
3. Leopard (Anything):
Is still in, in a big way. Just peel off the layers. Leopard booties no longer need tights while a leopard skirt needs a black, or even a brightly coloured tee and a chunky statement necklace.
4. Lace Top:
Worn under a blazer for most of the winter, it’s time to show some skin! Wear a flesh-tone bodysuit or tank underneath your lace and tuck it into a short, flowy skirt. Don’t forget a pair of sky-high wedges “ spring’s hottest shoe.
