Though spring has officially sprung, the final dregs of winter can linger on like annoying houseguests who have long overstayed their welcome. On the plus side, this fickle hot-cold weather tends to offer opportune days for fun in-between seasonal dressing.

To help you transition with ease, ahead are five lightly layered spring looks you can wear right now. And since warmer temperatures also mean you’ll be inclined to show more skin, each look is paired with a must-try beauty tip, from lathering with Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash and Beauty Bar for silky-soft skin to swiping on a bold liquid lipstick with all-day hold. Put away those chunky knits and heavy parkas—it’s time to lighten up your OOTD.

The Dress & Pants Ensemble 

One of the easiest ways to start wearing your minidresses immediately is to wear pants underneath. Our favorite pairing with a short number is with generously cropped pants or breezy culottes for that swingy, flowy silhouette. Finish the look with modest grandma heels, a timeless piece of jewelry, and a jewel-toned satchel.

Beauty tip: Hot showers can be a major culprit in drying out skin, so use a formula that’s designed to not only retain moisture, but also hydrate. Good thing Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash and Beauty Bar leaves your body feeling soft and smooth all over—which means your silky skin should be revealed ASAP.

The Funky Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits are springtime favorites because you can literally throw ’em on and go. This season, why not go for something a bit more off-kilter with a bold print? A thin kimono outer is the perfect cover-up for chillier days, and nothing completes the look better than a bold clutch and oversized sunglasses.

Beauty tip:

Sun’s out, toes out! If you’re going to bare the little guys, do so with pedicured feet. Red polish is a classic for a reason—it’s the perfect vixenish hue to have peeking out from simple pool slides, which also complement a whimsical jumpsuit well.

Dusen Dusen Blue Lines Jumpsuit, $350, at Bona Drag; Milo Leather Slide, $49, at Urban Outfitters; Long Kimono Jacket, $89.50, at Madewell; Tortoise Triangle Sunglasses, $180, at Dusen Dusen; Clare V.

The Floral Power Suit

It’s not officially springtime unless floral prints have invaded the streets. Luckily for the professional set, this all-over pattern is a bit more relaxed and subdued, making this matchy-matchy combo completely office-appropriate, even in a corporate environment. Just strap on a chunky heel and grab a clutch that transitions seamlessly from day-to-night.

Beauty tip:

Your outfit’s in full bloom, so have your eyes to match—with a mascara that promises to lengthen and curl those lashes with a single stroke. For maximum oomph, coat your eyelashes a few more times.

Elystan Jacket by Unique, $435, at Topshop; Elystan Trouser by Unique, $250, at Topshop; Sleeveless Top, $14.99, at H&M; Marc Jacobs Red Patent Leather Elle Heels, $450, at Ssense; Edie Parker Jean Glittered Acrylic Clutch, $895, at Saks Fifth Avenue; Benefit They’re Real!

The Girly Tomboy

Spring’s biggest denim trend—the un-hemmed finish with a wide-leg silhouette—is a must for every easy-going fashion girl. Add a sleeveless hoodie, neutral baseball hat, and an everyday bucket bag for major style points on the streets. Bubblegum-pink kicks keep things feminine and fresh.

Beauty tip:

Tomboy style admittedly can feel dowdy sometimes, so keep the vibe super polished by swiping a bold color on the lips. This particular formula has incredible staying power, for all your day’s adventures.

Current/Elliott Denim Culottes, $248, at Farfetch; Adidas Gazelle Suede Sneakers, $106, at Mytheresa; Drawstring Purse in Black, $140, at Baggu; BP. Baseball Cap, $18, at Nordstrom; Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick, $24, at Stila; Adidas by Stella McCartney ‘Yo Crop’ Hoodie, $85.92, at Farfetch.

The Elevated Grunge

Grunge will never go away—it’s a fact. Besides the obvious that flannel, tough boots, and unkempt layering are forever-favorite styling maneuvers, grunge is also perennially cool. Spring-ify the look with a side-slit plaid dress and heeled Chelsea boots. On colder days, throw on a slouchy grandpa cardigan with a matching beanie.

Beauty tip:

The trick to pulling off any kind of grunge is having the devil-may-care attitude to go with it. And that’s as easy to achieve as spritzing a few pumps of salt spray into damp or dry hair for that textured, disheveled frizz.

Long Check Dress, $49.90, at Zara; Saint Laurent Polished Leather Chelsea Boot, $895, at Bergdorf Goodman; Rhiley Cashmere Blend Knit Beanie, $29, at BCBG; Nili Lotan Ex-Boyfriend Cardigan, $308, at Steven Alan; R+CO Rockaway Salt Spray, $25, at Barneys; Sophie Hulme Mini Rucksack, $850, at Shopbop.
