Play Around With Color
Adding pops of color to your pre-existing winter outfits is one of the easiest ways to make your outfits feel lighter, more playful and summery. For example, replace your black cashmere with a bright yellow cotton crewneck and pair it with your same go-to pair of jeans.

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes!
I love switching up my basic winter outfits with a simple shoe swap. Introducing sandals, flip flops, slides, and open-toed heels can transform any outfit so that it is appropriate for warmer weather. You can definitely keep your sneakers around, but it’s definitely time to put away our Uggs and leather knee-high boots for the season.

Textures and Fabrics
Spring/Summer means playing with new textures. Just because it’s hot out doesn’t mean you are restricted to tee shirts and short shorts. Swap out your winter tops for some terry cloth and crochet, and your leather and wool bottoms for some lighter fabrics, such as linen.

Introduce Summer Staples
Another way to spring-ify your outfits is to add in your summer staples. For example, incorporating pieces that are summer-specific. Spring/Summer is the perfect time to wear your favorite strapless dresses, two-piece sets, and denim shorts. You can even turn your favorite swimsuit into the cutest summer outfit. Try pairing your bikini top with a pair of loose, baggy jeans and a crochet top layered over.
