With the spring season less than two weeks away, many of us are thinking about getting our closets ready for warmer weather and sun-filled days. I asked Wine Country stylist Malia Anderson of Style by Malia to share with us what items she suggests we add to our wardrobes to spruce it up in time for spring.
Malia scoured Sonoma County and found these 5 pieces, sure to add a dose of springtime to your style.
All About Yellow!
Malia suggests adding yellow, a fun and cheery color that’s on-trend, to your wardrobe and says, “Yellow is a must this season! This stunning reversible hoodie is the perfect way to add it to your spring wardrobe.”
Transitioning with Layers
Spring temperatures range from chilly to warm to chilly again on any given day in Sonoma County, so transitional dressing with layers is a necessity. Malia suggests this asymmetric sleeveless dress from Les Lunes, soon to open their first Sonoma County location in Healdsburg in April. She calls it the “perfect dress to layer for spring. Just add a little jacket or wear as a tunic over jeans. It’s a spring must-have.”

For Spring Showers
Just because the weather is warmer doesn’t mean the rainy season is over. Put away the heavy rain coat in favor of a light and stylish version. Malia suggests this water-resistant gingham coat from Talbot’s and says, “This is the perfect transition piece. As the weather warms up, this lighter weight coat is a stylish and functional option.”

Flowers and springtime just go together. Try the embellished denim trend with these jeans from Chico’s. Malia tells us, “Embellished jeans are the perfect way to add some floral to your wardrobe this spring.”

Malia suggests a pair of linen pants for the spring and summer seasons and says, ‘”for all those outdoor events we have here in Wine Country, these are the perfect pant.”
