Achieving an effortless look is something most women dream about. Curating a stylish outfit can feel like it requires a lot of effort, but this spring it doesn’t thanks to the Big Spring Sale going on at Amazon. You’ll find dozens of deals on women’s clothing items that are ideal for creating the perfect transitional spring wardrobe. Below are some of our favorite pieces with prices starting at just $17.

What makes clothing transitional?

Simply stated, transitional pieces are those items in your closet that can carry you through multiple seasons. That light jacket you can layer with a cardigan and denim in the fall or wear with shorts in the summer would be considered a transitional piece. Basically anything that stays in your wardrobe throughout the year falls into the transitional category!
