As much as we adore cozying up at home with throw blankets, cardigans, and steaming cups of hot cocoa in the winter, we can’t help but anticipate the beautiful blooms of spring! As you shop for winter, be sure to keep transitional clothing trends in mind that effortlessly carry you into April showers and May flowers! Transitional clothing includes pieces that can be styled differently depending on the season. The three essentials to stock your closet with this season are knits, plaid, and lace. But since incorporating transitional clothing from one season to the next can seem a little tricky, our newest style feature breaks down just how to wear knits, plaid, and lace in chilly weather and then when the sun comes back out!
How to wear knits: Knits are most associated with staying cozy in winter, especially when paired with ankle boots, pants or tights, and scarves. But when you start pulling out your floaty spring florals, the perfect transitional clothing is a knit sweater to toss over a blouse or dress in case of a little spring chill!
How to wear lace: Lace is a Ruchette staple, a classic trend that never goes out of style. When the weather is frosty, lace simply peeks out beneath layers and winter coats for a hint of romance. But when spring returns, lace takes center stage again in our outfits and we can wear our lace dresses sans tights again!
How to wear plaid: Plaid pieces are a classic staple year after year, just right for autumn mountain hikes and wintry afternoons with their classic, rustic feel. But plaid doesn’t get need to get packed away as the weather warms up. Most plaid pieces are light enough to be paired with your spring wardrobe.
