Texas weather is a temperamental thing to deal with, especially when it comes to deciding what to wear on a daily basis. Our 75 degree days started in late January and left us nostalgic for our favorite winter pieces. Here are some ways you can still incorporate your favorite signature winter pieces.

Leather jackets can make any outfit look edgy and are usually a trademark of the colder seasons. Whether they’re cropped, embellished, classic or multicolored, leather jackets are always a great staple piece for your wardrobe. Instead of wearing it with heavy sweaters and jeans, try pairing a leather jacket with a flowy floral skirt and a cream-crocheted tank for the perfect balance of sweet and cool.
Sweatpants are the winter essential that provides the perfect balance between comfort and warmth. Complimenting these sweatpants with cream or grey sneakers will allow you to stay comfortable and fashionable in the cool spring evenings.
Giving up the soft texture of knitted sweaters is a huge sacrifice when transitioning your wardrobe for the seasons. Natural colors like tan and green are trendy for the spring and look great in any knit. Try tucking in your light sweaters in high-waisted shorts paired with some funky sandals for a fresh look.
The 50s bomber jacket has been a trendsetting piece this past fall and winter. The light fabric makes this piece perfect for the windy days. Loud colors like plum purple can step up your game and work well with any spring outfit. Either rocking the bomber jacket as the main focus of your outfit or to accentuate a cool T-shirt, this jacket is definitely a spring necessity.
From Chelsea to combat, boots come in a variety of styles and can be worn all year round. Pairing your favorite booties with a pair of ripped light wash boyfriend jeans and a simple T-shirt will evoke a casual look and vibe in the mild weather. Lace-up booties are a stylish combination of a spring open-toed heel and a winter boot.
Don’t leave these treasures hidden in the back of your closet to gather up dust until next winter. Bring these winter staples back, and make your street style the best this spring season.
