It's that time of year when your ideal closet is in a constant battle with the weather. All the stores are stocked full of the latest spring fashions, yet the weather still screams winter. We are all dying to get out of the hot and itchy layers and into more easy and breezy pieces. Most of us are also ready to introduce more bright colors back into our wardrobe in preparation for spring and summer. It's easy to beat the winter fashion blues if you just remember one tip: When creating an outfit, choose 1 spring piece and mix it in with other winter pieces. This way you'll still be warm, but just a little brighter and fresher. The easiest way to do this is mixing chunky sweaters with your skirts. Whether they be maxis, sheer, flowy, or minis, this will add a pop of spring into your outfit. Check out the stylish ladies below for some more fashion transition inspiration:

Here's a great idea for layering: a bright spring blouse under a sweater, paired with fun shoes and chunky accessories. The bright blue clutch adds a pop of spring color yet still looks completely season appropriate.
