Spring Has Still Days Too Cold for the New Trends

The new cold snap of -25F (-31.7oC) that we had here in the Interior was not what I had in mind for the spring month. Well, at least, it was not 40 below like a couple of years ago. There is a reason for the song springtime in Alaska is 40 below.

A Spring Trend That Works: Black and White

If the weather is still too cold for wearing the new spring items, you can escape your winter style rut by adopting spring’s black and white trend. Black and white is a (classic) hot trend this spring. More on the black and white trend in this guide.

The black and white trend always works, no matter of the weather. Click To Tweet

How I Winterized the Black and White Spring Trend

To create a warm spring outfit, I wore a black layering to underneath a hounds-tooth blazer with white leather pants. Screen your closet for items that allow you to stay warm, but already pick up a spring trend or create a Pantone’s colors inspired look. Switching from classic winter styling to incorporation of spring elements ups the mood and makes the wait more interesting. You owe that yourself 😉 .

For  an unexpected, but effortlessly chic winter-to-spring transition outfit try white on winter white for spring.

What tricks do you use to not get the winter fashion blues?
