Managing The Transition From Winter To Spring

Managing The Transition From Winter To Spring


Spring is definitely a warmer season than winter, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s warm! Here’s a foolproof guide to ensuring you stay cosy this spring, both in your clothing and in your home.  

Change your duvet

A higher tog rating means a warmer duvet, and a lower tog rating means it is thinner. It’s pretty obvious that you should use the first in winter and the second in summer. But what about in spring? Well, this is where you need to overhaul the type of duvet that you have. Invest in all all-season style. For one price you get two duvets. One of them is lightweight and great for summer, and one is slightly thicker and great for spring and autumn. Then all you do next winter is add the two duvets together to make a super toasty one! This guide will give you more info on different togs and materials.

Make sweaters your new best friend

More than a tee-shirt, less than a coat. Sweaters should be your go-to item for a cosy spring. Irish sweaters are made from high-quality wool, which is an ideal material for this time of year. This means that one will see you through a number of years and seasons. Sweaters are also one of the most versatile items of clothing out there. You can wear them over summer dresses and with boots, or with skinny jeans and flats. They’re also low-maintenance and don’t need washing, drying and ironing as much as some other items. Plus, they’re great for both men and women. So much so, you might even be able to borrow your partners. Or should we say steal!

Buy a heated foot warmer

One particular part of the body that can really suffer during the winter and early spring is our feet. Heated foot warmers are great because they concentrate solely on the area that needs the help. Another alternative is a wheat bag that you can warm up in a microwave. Once spring is over, you can store it away. You’ll be glad to have it to hand once summer is over and autumn makes its appearance.

Find a transitional coat

As the weather warms up and the trees start to change, you’ll start to find your winter coat too warm. The likelihood is, it will be very padded. This is great for cold temperatures, but once the sun comes out, this padding can make you stuff and hot. However, you’re still a few months away from a light jacket or no jacket at all! A great style of coat for spring is a long-sleeved trench coat. Although the material is thinner and not padded, it is still substantial. The long sleeves will keep your arms warm and the longer length will cover your legs. A further benefit to a thinner trench-coat is that it’s less to carry around if the weather does suddenly warm up. Here’s hoping!

However you decide to manage the transition, remember that summer and its long nights will be here before you know it!
