Spring Fashion: 6 Winter Pieces Reinvented for Warmer Weather
When the first hint of warm weather strikes (if it ever does...), your first instinct might be to bid adieu to any and all pieces that remotely suggest at winter, but don't store them just yet. Key cold-weather staples aren't exclusive to one season —they can serve as the perfect antidote to tricky in-between season dressing. That's why we took style cues from the stars and rounded up six essentials that work now and beyond. From chunky knits, like those seen on Jamie Chung, to flannel shirts, breathe life back into last season's clothes by re-purposing and re-styling them for a new, fresh (and spring-ready!) spin.
The Chunky Sweater
While a cozy knit is a winter must, it's also an essential transition piece. When temps start to rise, copy Jamie Chung and partner it with a floral mini. Roll up the sleeves to ace that effortlessly stylish look.

The Flannel Shirt
Traditionally, plaid is for casual fall-ready ensembles, but Olivia Palermo reworked hers for spring. Follow her lead and ground an otherwise too-formal skirt with a flannel top.
Flannel Top + Fringe Skirt
Don't store your turtleneck away just yet. Follow Chloe Grace Moretz's lead and layer the cozy piece under your sleeveless springtime dress. Genius!
Turtleneck + Sleeveless Dress
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley translated her love for leather bottoms from season to season, trading in her sweater for a breezy blouse (and worked in her favorite animal print along the way).

The Maxi Skirt
Miranda Kerr reinterpreted her dark maxi skirt for hotter climates by pairing it with a fun tie-dye tee-a clear, playful nod toward summertime fun.
