Ask tristinstyling: How do I transition into spring wardrobe?

Q:

It’s still a bit chilly but I’m over my winter sweaters. Besides, it’s not too cold nowadays that I really NEED to be wearing such heavy clothing. How can I dress more in season with this up and down weather?

Also, where can I go to get some cute spring stuff without spending too much?

A:

So maybe the midwest isn’t lucky enough to get the hundred degree heat that friends in L.A. keep whining about (right now) but hey Chicago, sixty degrees beats snow so I say let’s unpack your warmer weather threads and spruce it up with hot buys to get you stylin’ as we spring into summer fun!

For now, hold on to your lightweight layering accessories like scarves and tights so you can still keep from feeling chilly until the weather begins to stay warm a little more consistently.

If you want to give your entire look an update without having to buy a whole new wardrobe, buy a few interesting pieces like the ones below to make one stunning ensemble or… add just one interesting item to different simple outfits (like colorful shoes or a hot purse with jeans and a t-shirt) to create a “focal piece” that turns boring, into, “So cute! I love your shoes!” or “Where did you get that purse?”

Ruche is a great place to shop for inexpensive, vintage inspired pieces.
