8 Seriously Cool Outfits To Transition To Spring


It’s been a record-breaking warm winter in the Midwest – Michigan hit 70 degrees in February, which is unheard of. We’ve all been holding our breath, expecting a giant snowstorm any moment, but for now everyone is making the most of this unseasonably warm winter. Lemme tell you, NO ONE takes advantage of a beautiful day like a midwesterner who hasn’t seen the sun in four months!

Since I’ve gotten an earlier-than-usual start on my spring wardrobe, I’ve been using this opportunity to try out different trends and come up with outfits for this transitional weather. I’ve been having fun with some really cool pieces.

8 Fun and Versatile Transitional Weather Outfits

So, what does one wear when it’s 70 degrees one day and snowing the next? When winter isn’t quite over, but spring is definitely on it’s way. Think: cuffed wide-leg jeans, flowy tunics, a classic trench coat, a few really good jumpsuits, and silver ballet flats to name a few.

1. Sleeveless Tunic + Cuffed Jeans + Silver Ballet Flats

I ordered this flyaway tunic from Anthropologie on an impulse, with zero expectations of it actually working for me. Consider me pleasantly surprised when I loved it. It’s linen, with slits on the sides, in the front, and the back. I especially love how it looks with these Pilcro jeans and silver ballet flats, but I also think it would be a cute swimsuit cover-up, or even paired with shorts.

2. Free People Jumpsuit + Black Adidas Sambas

I’ve never bought an activewear jumpsuit before and now I’m wondering why I waited so long. This jumpsuit is incredibly comfortable as well as flattering. And now I don’t have to worry about my lady bits popping out, or my t-shirt riding up over my head when I’m in downward dog.

3. Striped Tee + Cuffed Wide-Leg Jeans + Nike Sneakers

I am really loving the cuffed denim trend, so here’s a second pair: these Citizens of Humanity wide-leg jeans. The fit is loose throughout, really comfortable, and the cuffs are seriously cool.

4. Oversized Denim Shirt Jacket + Black Midi Dress + Wrap Sandals

I love midi knit dresses for spring because they are lightweight and comfy. I’m adding this AllSaints oversized denim button-up shirt on top, some cute black sandals, and done! I think this fit would also look great with a pair of black chunky black lug-sole loafers.

5. Trench Coat + Black Wide-Leg Jeans + Silver Ballet Flats

A really good trench coat is one of my must-haves for early spring weather. It adds instant class to any outfit I wear it with. I wore this coat all over my trip to Northern Italy last April and am so happy to be able to pull it back out of the closest as the weather warms up.

6. Denim Jumpsuit + Adidas Sambas

I can’t resist a good denim jumpsuit, its a weakness of mine. So I had to try this Free People Edison Wide-Leg Jumpsuit. The fit is baggier than I expected, especially in the waist and the legs. But it is supremely comfortable, very on trend, and I LOVE it.

7. Cropped Cardigan + Cuffed Wide-Leg Jeans + Silver Ballet Flats

This outfit gives you a better peek at how great these Pilcro wide-leg, high-rise cuffed jeans are. I will be wearing these over and over because they are super flattering and the denim wash is exactly what I’ve been looking for. SO GOOD!

8. Oversized Sweatshirt + Leggings + Sneakers

My current ‘go-to’ chores around the house outfit: an oversized sweatshirt and my Vuori leggings. This Aerie oversized sweatshirt is SO incredibly soft and comfortable and it’s 30% off right now – I highly recommend it. Aerie has the best affordable oversized sweatshirts out there. I went for a size large because I wanted an extra oversized fit.

Until next time, xoxo,

Oh hey, Pinners…


  1. I love this fresh update! If you had to pick one pair of the cuffed jeans; whoch one would it be, and why? I have both on order but the pilcro are backordered.

  2. Oh man, that’s a great question and one I am asking myself currently because I love BOTH. If push came to shove, I’d prob go with the Citizens because they are so comfortable. But, the Pilcro pair are seriously flattering but there isn’t much stretch in the denim fabric.

  3. You are simply the coolest! Love every outfit, but those cuffed jeans and striped shirt are the epitome of the perfect spring ‘fit!
