With spring — and its mercurial weather — just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to consider adding a transitional garment or two to your closet. We’re talking a piece that can seamlessly switch from chilly mornings to sunny spring afternoons. From a stylish vest to sweet sneakers, here are four transitional spring styles that will get you through the sartorial season shift.
The latest collection from Foot Locker Women’s creative director Melody Ehsani features varsity-cool pieces that are both sporty and chic. Available in sizes XS-3X, the range includes shorts, pants, tops and more. Among the release is this cool striped rugby-style shirt dress, which is the perfect colour-blocked piece for spring.

This vest from the Canadian brand Moose Knuckles offers essential warmth without the bulk or weight of a full-on winter piece. Made from a lightweight nylon ripstop fabric that boasts a diamond quilting, the St Clair Vest hails from the brand’s new Air Down Collection. The style features a slightly longer fit and a sash belt at the waist for added fashion points.

If your sneakers are looking and feeling a bit tired after the winter, consider stepping into spring with a fresh style like these Sorel Women’s Kinetic Impact II Strap Sneakers. The slip-on design is available in a rainbow of bright colour ways that are perfect for spring, while new design elements such as “foot-to-floor” cushioning and a lightweight, molded Livelyfoam midsole ensure sore feet are so last season.

Update your intimates with a new minimalist collection from Canadian brand La Vie en Rose. The collection includes stylish bra and underwear styles that are stripped down to emphasize smooth fits and fabrics rather than eye-catching design elements. Among the release is this Lightly Lined Wireless Minimalist Bra, which promises to provide comfort and support while looking smooth under everything from sweaters to T-shirts.
