Spring has sprung! But just because winter has left the building doesn't mean it's bare leg season quite yet. For those of us on the east coast, serious layers can stay in our wardrobe rotation until well into April. If you're jonesing for a taste of spring but still can't go outside without putting on a little more clothing than you'd like, it's time to get creative with these stylish finds.
By the beginning of April, I typically want to get as far away from my winter coats as possible. They're bulky, take too long to get in and out of and can make you feel so stuffy. Since April can still get quite chilly at night, it's important to still wear a coat, but a nice way to transition into the warmer months is with a colorful trench coat. Try this mod-themed colorblock one.

Hot pink pants? Oh yes, ma'am! For days when the weather is too nippy for your new spring dresses, throw on these hot pink ankle pants. They'll keep you warm but also infuse a dose of much needed color into your in-between weather wardrobe.

Let's face it, ladies, you need to tote around a lot of stuff every season. If you're dying for some color this spring to get you through those last few weeks of sporadic snow showers and nippy temps, try this colorful charmer on for size.
There’s something so sexy about a sheer blouse, don’t you think? Worn with a camisole, sheer blouses can be a great option for those in between weather months when it’s not quite warm enough to let your arms go bare but it’s too warm for a stuffy sweater. I’m crushing on this one.
Tights are basically a gal’s best friend. They suck you in, cover you up and offer dimension to any look. This spring, cover up but stay bright with a colorful pair of opaque tights. These from would look darling with your favorite LBD!

I love me a cardigan. They’re great layering pieces, can be worn in multiple ways and can add a nice pop of color to a T-shirt and jeans or your favorite dress. Cardigans are the perfect in-between weather piece for the sheer fact that they can be easily tossed on or off. Choose one in a neutral color to wear over any of your fave ensembles this spring or go bold with a bright hue to punch up any outfit.
