7 Chic Ways To Transition From Winter To Spring

The end (of winter!) is near, and that definitely calls for a wardrobe overhaul. Out with the old wool coats and in with the new lighter pieces that will keep you cozy and looking chic for the coming spring. If you are lacking inspiration, here are trends you can’t miss this season as styled by our favorite stars!

1. The Pastel Cardigan

I don’t think anyone can resist a sweet pop of color in cardigan form. It immediately gives your outfit an added boost of color, warms you up, and brightens your day, what an all-rounder! Just look at how Yoon Se Ri (Son Ye Jin) from “Crash Landing On You” pairs hers with a floral dress for maximum girl-next-door charm.

For those who aren’t exactly fans of channeling the unicorn girly look, a pastel cardigan can still be pretty versatile in how you style it. Not convinced? Just take a leaf out of BLACKPINK Jennie’s style playbook with a classic tee and a pair of leather pants for a touch of sweetness to an otherwise casual and modern get-up.

2. Lather on the Leather

Springtime is the perfect time for shaking out the leather goodies you have stashed away, as it’s finally warm enough to wear them out without fear of hypothermia. Whether it’s a rock and roll leather jacket or some high-waisted leather pants, leather is in this season in a big way. And the Secret Unnies know all about it!

While Red Velvet’s Seulgi keeps things classic with a leather jacket over a tee,

Her secret unnie (Korean for big sister) Sunmi goes all in with her squad for a dramatic and sexy look!

3. Plaid Ain’t Plain

Winter usually calls for a duller, more neutral color scheme, but now that we are transitioning into a new season, the classic plaid gets a tint update, and we see the print worn in brighter shades or paired with other items that are brighter in tone.

For those who are more adventurous, pastel plaids are a good way of injecting some fun while still looking put-together. Red Velvet’s Joy knows this best!

If you don’t yet have a colorful plaid piece to rock, why not ride the trend a la IU with a more classic plaid print paired with something bright?

4. Invest in Vests

Sweaters, jackets, and outerwear don’t have to be the only things you turn to for layering up, especially when knit vests are back in trend. They add a slightly preppy feel to an outfit that is best suited for those looking to channel a sweeter aesthetic, just like gugudan’s Mina!

5. On the Fringe

It’s all in the details, and fringe detailing is just the kind we need for a sashaying good time this spring. Of all the trends this season, I adore the fringe for how dynamic it is and how it lends a touch of the ’20s flapper glamor. Here, BLACKPINK’s Jisoo wears it as part of a dramatic sweater look.

6. Pretty Pleats Please!

After a very festive winter, pleats are exactly what we need to give an illusion of a slimmer silhouette, so boy, were we pleased to see it back in style for this season in light pastel tones. They can be worn as part of a more demure get-up or to complement a more daring style choice. Just take a hint from our favorite Chungha!

7. Puffy Sleeves

They are big, they are puffy, and they attract eyeballs like no other. Say hello to the enduring trend of the puffy sleeves. The everlasting appeal of the power shoulders comes down to the understated coolness that they exude, kind of like how a boxy fit gives off an air of casual masculinity, a flattering pair of puffy sleeves attracts attention and practically screams “I’m confident and I’m owning this!”

And who better to embody this than ITZY’s resident fashionista, Lia?
