It is of course wonderful to realize that your warmest winter clothing like thick sweaters, cardigans, and warm boots and fake fur coats are no longer needed. So it’s about time to put away your thick winter clothes. It just takes up less space and you have more overview.
The perfect place to store your winter wardrobe is in a cool, dark, dry and clean place in plastic trays or garment bags and with mothballs or lavender. Before storing your items for long periods of time, make sure everything is clean. Also check if no buttons are missing on your winter coat and your knitted fabrics have no holes. Put everything in the washing machine, polish your shoes and bring items that you still want to wear next winter, if needed, to the tailor and/or dry cleaner. This way they’re ready to use as soon as the weather gets cold again.
And now ready for spring! In the wind, it can sometimes still feel icy cold but in the sun you can sometimes sit on a terrace without a jacket. You can’t t put on your summer wardrobe just yet. So just put on layers such as a (silk) camisole, a cardigan, a trench coat. You can enjoy spring sun with your bare arms and still have plenty of garments to keep you warm at the end of the afternoon when the temperatures drop.
Brighten up your wardrobe with color! Combine dark tones with the new fashion colors: sunny yellow, apple green and aqua blue. When it’s cold, just wear your winter coat and finish it off with a bright scarf. Replace your black bag with a natural or colored leather bag, your heavy winter boots with light suede boots, ankle boots or trendy sneakers in for example copper or taupe. Make something out of it!
