Transition your wardrobe while working with what you have

Learn how to transition your wardrobe this season while keeping your closet clutter-free and your pocketbook a little fuller.

There is no greater reason to shop than a change of season; however, if your budget does not allow for impulse shopping or your closet protests the addition of more clothes, it’s easy to take what you already have and carry it forward into the next season.

Learn how to transition your wardrobe this season while keeping your closet clutter-free and your pocketbook a little fuller.

Spring is here

Shoes

Versatile and unlikely to ever go out of style, booties in all their forms are a great starting point when you move into the next season. Chunky or heeled, calf-height or ankle style, booties can be worn year-round. During warmer months, they make an excellent tomboy look when paired with a cute dress or shorts. To make that same outfit more appropriate for cooler months, accentuate your dress with a scarf and tights.

Capris and cropped pants

In style since the 1950s, capris and cropped pants are a sure bet for any modern Latina’s closet. During the winter, these pants can be worn with a pair of heels or boots and a chic sweater when you need extra warmth, but in the spring and summer, accent your cropped pants with a lightweight T-shirt or tank top and a sassy pair of sandals that will surely flatter your body .

Blazers

Never underestimate the power of a good blazer. A versatile staple in every woman’s wardrobe, this easy add-on can be changed to match any season. Neutral-colored blazers, like navy and gray, work any time of the year. Sport darker colors during the cool months for the office or social outings.

When spring and summer arrive, a brightly colored blazer with a sexy pair of jeans will help transition your wardrobe. Choose bold Latin-inspired colors such as brilliant oranges, Mediterranean blues, soft turquoises, and lavish yellows for an instant (and on-trend) seasonal change.

Silk Items

There’s something about silk that shouts spring and summer, so having at least one silk blouse in your closet is a must. There is no easier way to put together a quick polished look than by throwing on a beautiful silk shirt. Turn heads with a pair of casual jeans and a red silk blouse.

Other tips

Take advantage of the many simple accessories that can help transition your existing wardrobe from one season to the next without breaking the bank.

To instantly transition your wardrobe, go for accents that are bold, geometric, striped or floral. Also, adding pretty pieces (small or large) in the season’s hottest colors will definitely inspire you to leave winter behind.
