Springtime in Texas comes in many temperatures….from cold gusty winds to warm sunny days.  We never know what to expect!

Though one thing I know for sure….spring layering is a must! So let’s talk about coats. Spring is the perfect time of year to layer with a trench coat. Nothing says “welcome spring” like a trench worn with white jeans and sneakers. To dress up your trench a bit, complement it with crops and heels, and wear it as a raincoat when needed.

Let’s be honest though….sometimes we still need a warm coat in early spring. Think about adding color by wearing a yellow, pink, or white puffer….so many choices at Amazon Fashion.  And of course these are perfect for a spring ski trip! A wrap coat is another great option for spring transitioning.  Be sure to browse all the options on our Pinterest board!

No matter what the temperature, a tweed coat will definitely give you spring fever!  Anthropologie steals the show with their pink scalloped tweed coat shown with blue jeans and a white shirt.  For a fun preppy look, wear a blazer with a denim shirt. Two Pinterest looks we love feature a red blazer and a yellow blazer.  They are both layered over denim shirts and striped tees. If you are wanting a classic look, a navy blazer is the perfect introduction to springtime in Texas.  Bring on the fever!

Not only is it super frugal to transition an army green jacket from fall to spring, it’s also super trendy.  My style throwback is an army green blouse and jacket I like to wear with white jeans. To give it a spring vibe, I changed out my fall tote for a clear Luna tote from Boho Couture.  A camouflage jacket paired with white jeans and a blue chambray shirt is another way to transition from one season to the next.

Wondering what to wear Easter Sunday when it’s chilly out?  We love how Nordstrom’s style muse, Eadie Blair, shares her ladylike looks. With a beautiful coat layered over a skirt or slacks, she always adds a breath of fresh “spring” air to her style.  Another church style hack is to drape a blazer over a floral dress…so elegant! A denim jacket matched with a checked ruffled skirt and white wicker bag is guaranteed to add a little “spring” to your step!  And we are major crushing on a floral midi skirt and dressy pink purse topped off with a blue jean jacket. Who’s ready to hunt Easter eggs?

From coats to jackets, the whole idea of spring layering is to transition from one season to the next.  And guess what? I predict you will be wearing some of these looks throughout summer as well!
