Three exciting ways to wake up your style while you make the move from winter to spring: (This list does not include wearing our favorite summer dress with leggings and booties)
KICK IT OFF WITH COLOR
We have been living in our all-black everything. Some adventurous days see a splash of tan, navy or grey. Winter whites look fabulous on Pinterest but the reality of it is, well, different. So here is what you can do: Ditch your black skinnies for a jewel-toned culottes. Or start with your basics (be it black, blue or greige) and slowly add a dash of color. A printed scarf here, an embroidered bomber there or even a fab lipstick.
Current crush: Vibrant tassel earrings — somehow they seem to work with just about everything!
IT’S ALL IN THE LAYERS
The key to smart transitional style lies in the jacket. Not too heavy but not too light; needs to go with most things but definitely can’t be boring. We can think of bombers, cozy cardigans, moto jackets and modern army jackets.
Current crush: Duster coats (originally worn centuries ago to protect clothing by when riding in open cars) get our third piece MVP award. They take any outfit from basic to anything but.
Take a deep dive into the spring-summer trends and pick some you can work with around this transitional phase. Bring in a dash of greenery (Pantone Color of the Year but house plants are equally welcome), introduce some rainbow bright stripes, innovate with the button-down or have fun with the Eighties… flirting with some of upcoming trends before the season kicks off is a great way to (literally) warm up!
Current crush: Standout sleeves, standout sleeves and more standout sleeves.
