How to Transition Your Toddler's Wardrobe From Winter to Spring

As the days warm up and the first signs of spring show, dressing your toddler becomes fun with brighter colours and versatile outfits. You can start to swap out the heavier winter clothes and shed woolly scarves and hats in favour of lighter fabrics. 

Transitioning your toddler's wardrobe from winter to spring can seem like a daunting and expensive task. However, preparing your little one for warmer temperatures does not need to break the bank, as there are many savvy and practical ways you can seamlessly shift their wardrobe so it's spring-ready. 

In this article, we guide you through some great ideas for dressing your toddler for spring weather while saving money and making use of those warm winter clothes. 

  1. Reuse winter pieces

Before you rush out to buy a whole new spring wardrobe take account of your toddler's winter wardrobe. Spring can still have cold temperatures so winter pieces can be repurposed. For instance, those cosy jumpers can still be worn over lighter T-shirts or paired with dresses instead of heavy trousers. 

  1. Layering is key

Layering is the ultimate solution for transitioning between seasons and is a great way to incorporate new pieces. Instead of bulky winter coats, opt for lighter jackets that can be easily added or removed as temperatures fluctuate throughout the day. A long-sleeved shirt under a sleeveless dress or a denim jacket over a t-shirt can adapt to changing weather conditions effortlessly.

  1. Embrace versatile clothing

Rent or buy versatile clothing items that can be worn across seasons. A floral long-sleeve dress can be paired with leggings and a cardigan during cooler days and worn on its own when the sun shines brightly. Look for clothing with classic designs and colours that will pair well with any winter clothing you already have and allow you to seamlessly transition from one season to another.

  1. Renting rather than buy

Instead of buying lots of new items of clothing for spring, consider renting clothing for your toddler. This works great as you rent the items you need for as long as you need them.

You can rent seasonal bundles from Borro that help you easily transition from winter to spring. Renting also allows you to be more playful with bright colours and bold spring patterns as you can try them out for a short period and easily return them if you change your mind. 

Items such as this cute reversible spring jacket are great for layering over t-shirts and this waterproof puddlesuit is perfect for Spring showers. These spring essentials can be matched with existing items in your toddler's wardrobe allowing you to save money on those Spring clothing essentials

  1. Keep essentials in mind:

Don't forget Spring essentials such as sun hats, sunglasses, and a waterproof jacket. Swap heavy winter boots for lighter footwear options like trainers, or Wellington boots. Ensure that clothing is comfortable, waterproof, and durable for all the outdoor adventures the beautiful (and often wet!) spring weather will bring. 

Transition from winter to spring with ease

Transitioning your toddler's wardrobe from winter to spring can be an enjoyable and cost-effective process. By reusing existing winter clothing, embracing layering techniques, and considering rental options you can create a stylish and practical spring wardrobe without buying numerous new items. Enjoy the process of dressing your little one for the lively adventures that await this spring!
