December 1st always marks the beginning of Winter, unofficially. The cold weather does not wait until the 21st. With the cold weather comes some new clothes and some old. I wanted to share five tips on how to transition your wardrobe from Fall to Winter; so you don’t have spend all your money on new Winter clothes (because all our money really goes towards gifts this time of year).
Tip 1: Wear your blanket scarf around your body as a second layer between your top and your coat.
Tip 2: Layer those leggings!!!! Wear leggings underneath your jeans or other pants to keep warm this Winter.
Tip 3: Swap out your leather jacket for a longline wool coat.
Tip 4: Buy a couple of sweaters (knit, oversized, etc) that can be layered with tops already in your wardrobe (collared shirts, long shirts, etc)
Tip 5: If you have separation anxiety from your leather jacket, then just layer it under your Winter coat, that way, when you’re at an event, you can still keep warm and look great.
In the old days, women used to buy a new wardrobe for each season but now a days that ain’t the case. For us women who don’t want to spend a lot to update our wardrobe, I came up with a list of pieces to update your closet for the Spring season, for under $100. SCORE!!! I usually find that buying new accessories like bags, scarves, shoes and only a couple tops/bottoms will revamp your wardrobe. Hope you enjoy and comment what you like best!!
Since the weather is warming up and you’ll be going out more, you’ll want a bag that is versatile and can carry all your goodies without feeling like you’re carrying 200lbs on your shoulder | Forever 21 $27.90
Spring can still be a little chilly, so opt for a lighter scarf that still adds depth to your outfits. Make sure to get one that matches your Spring jackets. Paisley is back for Spring and adds a twist to the classic floral pattern. | Dynamite $19.95
Spring=Rain and it sucks, but get double the wear out of the coat you buy for Spring. This rain coat will keep you dry but still makes you look so good and Spring-y…is that a word? Say goodbye to those bright yellow rain coats and make a statement in a good way. | Asos $38.73
Time to shoes those little piggies! Lol for real though, this open toe/open heel bootie gives a fresh new look to your black ankle bootie. Fresh new look, fresh flowers means Spring. | Forever 21 $39.90

For a grand total of $147.81 you can get all these items (or ones similar) to give your wardrobe a fresh new look for Spring. These items can easily be paired with colours and styles from your existing wardrobe which means you don’t have to spend a lot to change it up. Also buying a new lip colour or blush is a great addition to your Spring look. Try out a coral/peachy blush and a pink lip.
