How I Make My Closet Ready For Spring
If there is a thing I know is that sometimes life can get really complicated.
Especially during season’s change I find myself very unorganised. And my closet reflects my lack of organisation. But tell me if I’m not right when I say that it’s pretty hard to keep your wardrobe orderly when one day it’s hot like hell and the only think you need is a fresh light skirt and the day after you just want to wrap the warmer scarf you own around your body.
In other words: welcome back transitional season!
If you are one of those women that always arrive prepared to the new season, please spill out your secret right now. Othwerise, if you are a bit of mess like myself here a list of tips that helps me to switch from a season to a new one.
HOW I MAKE MY CLOSET READY FOR SPRING
1.DO ONE THING AT A TIME
The only thought to put my hands on my closet to start making it ready for Spring causes me a sort of anxiety. I never know where to start from.
Recently I started realising how silly this anxiety is and how everything turns simpler when you start one step at a time. So first thing I do is to put away the warmest coats that I have (or bring them to the laundry in case they need some fresh retouch). Then I start to check winter accessories, pants, knitwear, dresses and so on.
The fact that I don’t have to finish everything in one day really makes my life simpler and myself a happier person.
2.LAYERS, LAYERS, LAYERS.
This is probably the most common rule to follow, but yet is the most efficient. Whenever the weather is unpredictable it’s pretty hard to decide what to wear. You might want to wear the new maxi dress, ending to regret it at the first 15-degrees-kind-of-situation. When this happens I understand why grandmothers always tell to put different layers on.
Adding a simple sweater, made this summer dress perfectly wearable even on March.
3.HAVING A BRAND NEW ITEM DOESN’T HURT
Although I don’t think you need an entire new wardrobe at every change of season, I believe that few small purchases can’t really hurt. On the contrary, seeing some Spring items already hanged in my closet makes me want to put all the winter gear away.
Some of my new purchases are: this polka dot midi skirt, the maxi dress, those pants that have THE MOST PERFECT FIT (yes, I’m saying it loudly, and while I’m writing this article with a hand, I’m buying the same pants but in black with my other hand) and a striped T-shirt because you can never have enough striped T-shirts, am I right?
Good news that all these “new-in” are extremely budget friendly but at the same time they can make the difference in your style.
4. PLAY WITH COLORS
Ok, I wear colors 12 months at year, but for me Spring calls for softer and more delicate tones of colors. I definitely want to wear pastel shades again (maybe trying to hide the pale color skin inherited from the winter wearing a bright and bold lipstick, this is the one I’m using).
I must admit that I absolutely love how I created this baby pink outfit, pairing a summer dress with this knit-sweater. So far, it’s one of my favourite looks to wear during this transitional season.
