When the weather went into a 70+ situation, it took some serious investigation in my closet to come up with a solid solution for transitional styling. Since the up and down temperatures require major layering, I went straight for my thin knits in breathable fabrics along with my denim, military and leather jackets. By relying on these staples, I’ve come up with a few key looks that can get me through the next few weeks when the weather is allover the place.
Here are some tips to style yourself well in-between seasons.
It’s still too soon for going sleeveless, but short sleeves –or even better– a long sleeve dress will do you right in the unpredictable temps. See if you’ve got something in cotton or silk, then add a lightweight knit to start your day. When the weather heats up, pull it off, and don’t forget your scarf. Put your wool one away, and instead opt for something lighter and brighter. It’ll provide protection against the cool breeze while making your spring ready statement.
Yes, we are wearing cropped pants this spring. Whether it’s a culotte or in simple denim, you’ll be loving the fresh air your ankles feel when you slip them on. A bright blazer is the perfect transition piece to wear over your printed button down blouse. And sneakers without socks (or teeny peds) will add a comfy cool vibe to your look.
A midi skirt will be your best friend right about now. Pair yours with an easy-to-pull-off cotton sweater and 3/4 length tee underneath which will be worn on its own in the afternoon. Wrapping the sweater around your waist makes a cute fashion detail while also providing a simple stash solution for the unneeded layer.
