Who is not looking forward to spring? To wearing the new clothes that collect dust in our closets since we “rescued” them from the racks and gave them a new home in January? Towards creating new outfits to see the sun? Towards the 2015 spring trends?

The new cold snap of -25F (-31.7C) 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.” See post here.

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.

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 color. Switching from classic winter styling to incorporation of spring elements ups the mood and makes the wait more interesting. You owe you that 😉 .

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