Chances are you’re ready for spring, but you may not be ready to store away your wooly winter knits just yet. Keep those knits out a few weeks longer by switching up other parts of your outfit. Here’s how.
Change Your Shoes
When the snow melts ease into it the new season by swapping your boots for ballet flats, heels or canvas sneakers. And then treat yourself to a pedicure.
Layers for the win
Spring is all about the layers. Wear lighter-weight clothing as the bottom layer and add your heavier knitwear on top. You can never go wrong with the classic combo of a dress and cardigan or for those cooler days stick with jeans, a cardigan and scarf.

Lighten Up Your Colors
You could be wearing the bulkiest of sweaters and still look like you’re dressed for spring if you’re in light colors. Lighten up your accessories or a couple pieces of clothing. Think light pinks, pastels, whites, coral and turquoise. Select a light denim wash for your jeans. Don’t neglect your makeup. Lighter shades will give you a fresh, springtime glow.

Show Some Skin with your knits
Long pants replaced with capris. Jeans rolled at the hem. Or go all the way with shorts, weather permitting. Bare your arms with a knit scarf…and maybe make it a scarf knit with bare arms.

Socks and Heels
This look can be very chic, but can also go wrong very easily. It’s no easy feat to pull off. If you’re up for the style challenge, select ankle or knee-high socks knit in very lightweight yarn. This isn’t time to go bulky (they won’t feel great in your shoes). Be bold with your colors and have fun with the rest of your items. This is a playful look.
