Spring Cleaning: How to Prepare Your Wardrobe for the Spring

Spring is almost here!

You’re probably already noticing shorts, T-shirts, and floral prints at your local stores, getting you in the mindset for warmer temperatures. If you’re already shopping for spring items, you also must consider giving your closet an overhaul for the upcoming season.

This doesn’t need to be a massive undertaking. You can be spring-ready simply by making a few tweaks and adding some key pieces to your wardrobe. Here are our tips on what items you should keep and put away for spring.

What to Pack Away

The biggest items taking up space in your closet are, no doubt, your jackets and coats. Packing away those bulky items will free up tons of space. However, it’s a good idea to keep your light sweaters and jackets available as they can easily be layered over your spring outfits and can be useful on those chilly spring nights.

Other items exclusive to winter — such as bulky scarves, boots, socks, long underwear, and beanies — should be packed away for next year. If you have any items made of a thick fabric, such as sweater dresses or vintage polyester dresses, you might consider switching them out for lighter fabrics this season. For layering in the spring, make sure to keep your tights and over-the-knee socks in your drawers to pair with shorter dresses and skirts.

What Trends to Make Room For This Spring

This season designers are clearly inspired by the 1980s—think strong shoulders and nipped waists. You can expect to see fashionistas don clothing with asymmetrical necklines and off-balanced silhouettes. Comfortable ruched dresses will replace stiff corsets. Longer lined pencil skirts are making a huge comeback.

Lace-up sandals are all the rage and brighten up any outfit. Among the gamut of bag trends, one stands out from the rest—the fanny pack or belt bag. Fanny packs are here to stay and come in sporty as well as dressed up versions. The explosion of millennial pink is also likely to be replaced by pastel lavender come springtime.
