I know it’s only February, but I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t already started mentally shopping my spring wardrobe. Because at this point, it feels like retailers are begging me to. They’ve swapped their winter wares for spring options—leaving me perusing swimsuits, sandals and spring skirts every time I go to mindlessly kill time by online shopping. It’s not like I’m seeking it out—these spring pieces are at the ready. And when they’re right in front of my face, I’d be a fool not to even look at them, right?
Conflicts about spring shopping in what can only be described as the middle of winter aside, the truth is: Stores really have swapped their winter collections for spring selections. And I’m of the mindset that planning ahead isn’t really a bad thing—especially when you’re just thinking one or two months into the future. Sure, it feels a little strange to stock up on swimsuits and sandals while the threat of snow still looms overhead. But spring skirts? They seem like a pretty harmless way to dip my toes into the spring shopping universe. If I really had to, I could probably make a spring skirt work in frigid temperatures. (The same cannot be said for swimsuits or sandals—no matter how much sartorial creativity you’re bringing to the table.)
Though the phrase “spring skirts” might summon visions of pastels, ginghams and lightweight ruffles, the reality of the genre is a little more diverse. There are structured spring skirts and breezy ones, colorful ones and darker ones, linen ones and knit ones. Like fall clothes, spring clothes tend to walk the line between winter cold and summer warmth; though many of us recognize it as an extended beginning of summer, spring is really just a transitional season—and spring clothes tend to exemplify that. This season’s spring skirts are no exception. (Which is really yet another excuse to let yourself off the hook for shopping—or at least, eyeing—them now.)
