Don't make spring's worst style mistakes

AVOID: All Black

We’ve all been guilty of settling into an all-black wardrobe in winter, but don’t let that come with you into spring!

CHOOSE: Black and White

A huge trend this spring is contrasting colors: black and white! Choose a dress like Blake Lively’s for your next dinner party.

CHOOSE: Black and White

Recycle your black pieces by pairing them with white: recreate Jessica Chastain’s look for a perfect office outfit.

AVOID: Letting Your Outfit Look Like a Crayola Box

We understand the excitement of breaking out all of your bright clothes for spring, but try not to wear them all on the same day!

CHOOSE: Neutral Pieces to Tone the Color Down

By wearing a neutral top, Jessica Alba keeps a skirt this colorful from being too overwhelming!

CHOOSE: Just a Few Colors

By going with these two bright solids, Pippa Middleton looks fun without being too funky.

AVOID: Too Much of One Print

Are you madly in love with stripes? How about leopard? That’s great, but don’t allow yourself to buy more than a few pieces of your beloved print.  To much is not appealing to the eye, and it’s important to keep variety in your wardrobe.

CHOOSE: Mixed Prints

When you have a variety of prints in your wardrobe, you can wear them tons of interesting ways.  We love Olivia Palermo’s look, patterned from her shirt to her shoes!

CHOOSE: Mixed Prints

Emma Watson shows a little bit of an edge in this look, amping up the sweet patterns with a leather jacket and bold makeup.  We’re loving the variety!

AVOID: Dark Nails

Dark nails are great for winter – but you must ditch them when the sun starts shining! Don’t forget your nails are a great form of expression – and accessory – and you should use them to their brightest extent.

CHOOSE: Bright Nails

Blues and greens are very in right now, and we’re loving this aquamarine color on AnnaLynne McCord.

CHOOSE: Bright Nails

Whatever shade you prefer, it’s fun to switch it up based on your mood or your outfit.  Zooey Deschanel is never shy with her nails, and spring and summer are the times of year when you can go wild!

AVOID: Trendy Outfits in the Office

Just because you saw lots of sheer and cut-out dresses on the runway doesn’t necessarily mean those looks are appropriate for the office. If you must, choose a classic version, and rock your trendier pieces on the weekends!

CHOOSE: A Classic Silhouette with a Hint of the Trend

Well maybe we wouldn’t choose a cape for the office, but notice how you can get a bit of that sheer trend in with this dress, but still keep it conservative enough for the office.

CHOOSE: A Classic Silhouette with a Hint of the Trend

Camilla Belle wore this cut-out dress with grace, and we love that it’s not in your face, but has that pop of color underneath the navy.  Throw on a blazer, and this would be great for work.

AVOID: Deep-Diving into a Trend Just Because it Went Down the Runway

Now we don’t know about you, but we don’t really have an occasion in our upcoming calendars in which a leather dress would be necessary, but we do love the leather trend. Just be sure to make it work for your lifestyle.

CHOOSE: A Leather Skirt

Skirts such as Laura Haddock’s are a great way to introduce some leather into your wardrobe, and keep up with the trend!

CHOOSE: A Leather Jacket

We ALL need a great leather (or pleather!) jacket – a piece that will fit into everyone’s life, keeping you stylish and comfortable.

AVOID: Too Much Pastel

We love pastels as much as the next girl, but wearing too many shades runs the risk of making you look like an Easter egg!

CHOOSE: Bright Colors

Bright colors and neon shades were on just about every runway this year, and are a perfect pop of color to add to an outfit, like Pippa Middleton’s hot pink jeans.

CHOOSE: Bright Colors

We’re in love with this pink and red dress worn by Emma Stone, and its bright shades are perfect for spring.

AVOID: Super Short Shorts

Don’t jump the gun with summer shorts – it’s not quite the weather out for those super short shorts, yet!

CHOOSE: Fun, Spring-y Shorts

These floral shorts on Olivia Palermo are lovely and fun – and great for springtime.

CHOOSE: Elegant Shorts

It’s not time yet for cutoffs (those are only acceptable on the beach) – though you may be ready to bare those legs.  Choose to do so like Nina Dobrev.

AVOID: Wearing Winter Coats in Spring

If it’s warm enough to be wearing shorts, you shouldn’t need a long or oversized coat.  (And vice versa!)

CHOOSE: A Leather Jacket

Leather Jackets are perfect for the transition into spring, when you need a little more warmth, but nothing too bulky.

CHOOSE: A Leather Jacket

This jacket Rachel Zoe is wearing is great for spring – from the color to the fit, we just love it!

The days are getting longer, the sun shines a little brighter, and the thermostat is creeping up. We can't be the only ones with a spring in our step.

But as the days get warmer, our closets have to transform with them. As you transition from your winter wardrobe to your spring wardrobe, be careful not to jump the gun into summer, or forget some of your great pieces that can make the transition a little easier.

We hope you've seen our list of Winter style mistakes people make far too often, now click through the above to see the mistakes you can avoid this spring!
