Spring is the perfect time to mix and match prints and fabrics. The variations of outfits are endless and could easily make your wardrobe more fun and refreshing. Mixing and matching your clothes is an excellent skill to have when transitioning from season to season as it enables you to find creative ways to use both your old and new clothes.

This Fashionista mixed a closet staple with a transitional spring piece by pairing a denim button-down with a floral dress. The floral trend is perfect for spring because it directly correlates to the blooming of flowers that we’ve all seen in spring 2015 collections. The shirt was a great substitute for a denim jacket because it’s not very heavy and could be extremely beneficial when temperatures warm up during the day. She paired this with thong sandals and minimal gold accessories that balanced the ensemble out as a whole. The black sandals coordinated well with the colors of the dress and the jewelry added a nice finishing touch. The necklace and watch created a subtle yet classically elegant feature that contrasted from the mix and match of the dress and denim shirt.

One Simple Change: To go from day to night, swap the floral dress with a floral shirt and high-waisted black jeans. This will create a comfortable look that screams playful and effortless. The shirt and pants combination for a night out is always the simultaneously safe and stylish route to go. Top it all off with your favorite go-to black heels and your outfit will have the perfect charm for a spring night.
