Take Your Wardrobe from Spring to Summer
Trunk Club

One of the best parts about the weather transitioning from spring to summer is that your wardrobe doesn’t require a complete overhaul. You can take your favorite spring pieces straight into summer and still get just as much use out of them. Ahead, we’re showing you our favorite warm-weather staples and how we’re styling them.

The trend: 

Light denim

Why we love it: 

No matter the silhouette, jeans with a brighter wash bring a refreshing feel to any outfit.

For spring: 

Since the weather can still be a little unpredictable, we recommend pairing your denim with a breathable long-sleeve tee. Choose a top that features a unique detail, like a subtle color-blocked design. For a trendy finish, round out the look with an unstructured bag in a pastel shade and a pair of stark-white booties.

Into summer: 

First, trade in your long-sleeve tee for a breezy cotton top featuring a sunny color scheme. Switch out your shoes for a retro-inspired pair of sandals—the more colors on them, the better. Then, carry all your things in a round jute bag that is perfect for wearing from farmer’s markets to brunch.

The trend: 

Floral top 

Why we love it: 

Florals for spring may not exactly be groundbreaking, but we’re still big fans of the whimsy they offer to warm-weather outfits. 

For spring: 

A neutral color palette is great this time of year, because it feels unexpected and cool. Pulling inspiration from the floral pattern, we chose complementary earth tones for our pants and a third piece to create a cohesive look. Slip-on mules with woven detailing give the outfit an effortless finish.

Into summer: 

Who likes short shorts? We do. Especially if they have a darling scalloped hem design. Just be sure to give your top a casual half-tuck—it’s our favorite way to help create the appearance of longer legs. And to really add height, we’re looking to espadrille wedges in a bright shade of sunshine to get the job done.

The trend: 

Bright accessories

Why we love it: 

By strategically choosing the right shoes and accessories, you can easily take a look from day to night.

For spring: 

We love pairing a casual dress with sneakers because it strikes the perfect balance between dressing comfortably and looking cute. Begin by choosing a dress that has a flattering silhouette, then add a loose-fitting jacket overtop. Kick your look up a notch by adding sneakers in a bold color or pattern and finish off with equally edgy sunglasses.

Into summer: 

Going from sporty to sweet is a simple task with just a few easy changes. Start by trading in your sneakers for slide sandals. We prefer a bright pair with a block heel—this silhouette is cute and versatile enough for evening wear, too. A coordinating purse and matching earrings add the perfect touch of glam.
