The ground hog might have declared an early spring, however the forecast begs to differ! I know it’s just February and still cold in most places, however most retailers have gotten rid of the winter/holiday merchandise and are now filling their shelves with new spring trends and pre-spring (also known as transitional) items. Walmart Fashion has a host of stylish and on-trend items for spring that will transition seamlessly from winter to spring
To get you in a spring state of mind, I partnered with Walmart to show you some stylish spring pieces you can wear now! I know you have been thinking about the next cool pieces to add to your closet for spring 2020.Trends like tie-dye, and pastel colors are going to be major, so best to start early before everything gets sold out as spring draws nearer.
3 tips for wearing your 2020 spring trends nowIf you’d like me, you want to start wearing your goodies once you receive them in the mail. Here are three tips on how to wear your new spring favorite trends in cold weather.
Wear everything with booties
Pair your items with dark accessories
1. LayeringLayering is easier than you think. The best way to wear your spring clothes in cold weather is to layer them with cold weather pieces. Wardrobe staples like a turtleneck sweater, a crew-neck bodysuit, a chunky sweater or a white shirt are all great layering pieces. You can layer these items under a multitude of spring pieces like I did with this tie-dye slip dresses. I opted to wear my slip dress from Walmart as a skirt by layering a slouchy V-neck sweater over the dress. If you don’t want to have a bare neck, simply wear a T-shirt under the dress, and throw the sweater over the t-shirt/dress combo. Depending on your lifestyle you can add layers on top of layers to your outfit to give it a stylish edge, or you can go for a more classic look, and layer with a white shirt, or a turtleneck sweater.
Shop the look
2. Wear everything with bootsYou’re already wearing boots, so why not wear them with your spring pieces? I do believe the easiest way to wear spring pieces in cold weather is to simply pair them with a great pair of boots. Fashion Girls all over the world are pairing their floral dresses, shorts suit sets, and other spring pieces with boots and it looks great. You might not believe that you can pull off the look, or feel like it might not look appropriate, but trust me it works. I paired my tie-dye on tie-dye look with a pair of western boots and it looks fabulous! So wether you are picking up a new floral, or tie-dye piece for spring, don’t hesitate to pair your affordable new goodies from Walmart Fashion with your most stylish pair of booties.
Shop the look
3. Pair your items with dark accessoriesMost spring pieces feature lighter/ softer colors. Because spring colors are a little brighter and lighter than fall winter colors, most people are hesitant to wear them now. You can combat that by pairing your pastel colors with dark accessories. Boots and handbags in darker hues look great when they’re paired with softer spring colors. A lime green pastel skirt paired with an oversize dark brown or black chunky knit sweater is such a look! likewise, a fluorescent pink blazer will look great with navy leather pants. The key to pulling this off is creating a balance. Always opt for colors that are in the same color scheme, or complement each other on the color wheel.
Shop dark accessories and pieces to pair your items
Before adding new pieces to your wardrobe, ask yourself this important question; will these pieces work for my lifestyle? This question is important as it will ensure that you are not just buying pieces because they are trending, but because you truly love the piece, and you will ultimately wear it because it fits your lifestyle.
