How to Add a Touch of Spring to Your Winter Style

This post is sponsored by J.Jill.

Every year, the same thing happens. January hits, and I immediately start looking forward to spring. The problem is it’s still winter here in St. Louis, and hence cold. I get so eager to shake off the winter blues, though, that I must find ways to bring spring into my life. So, I begin to slowly infuse spring elements into my winter style by doing 3 things.

Colorful winter style

What I’m wearing: Linen top | Denim leggings

1. Wear bright colors.

When I first saw the must-have colors of spring, I was thrilled. Some of my favorite shades of yellow, blue, and orange are among the most popular hues. Why wait until spring to start wearing those cheerful colors?

My ombre-striped top (shop it here) features some of those IT colors. The blouse is a lovely combination of orange, blue, and yellow. And, for an extra dose of spring, there are accent flowers all over the print. It’s the kind of top you can wear now and on your next tropical getaway.

2. Rock fabulous leggings

Leggings are perfect this time of year because they can be worn as pants or as layers under longer tops and dresses. Right now, my go-to style is a pair of denim leggings from J.Jill (shop them here).  See them worn before here.

These denim leggings have such a flattering slim silhouette, which makes them perfect for layering, and even ideal for all-year wear.

Ultimately, I reach for these leggings often because they’re comfortable. The fabrication allows them to move when I do and hold their shape all day.

3. Rock colorful shoes

Shoes in vibrant hues, like my d’Orsay pumps, literally put a little spring in my steps. I love the contrast created when I pair them with my dark rise denim leggings too.

Bright colors. Comfy denim leggings. When my clothes look and feel great, I do too. Are you counting down to spring? How do you achieve your colorful winter style?
