Is it cold, is it hot, or is it lukewarm somewhere in-between? The weather flip flops so much this time of year that it makes it impossible to know if you need a parka or sandals for stepping outside. While a new season of clothing has arrived in stores and we couldn’t be more excited for the warmer months ahead, unfortunately, winter is still holding on strong and the next few weeks can be the most challenging days to dress for. So, here are 4 and inspiration that’ll make getting dressed a whole lot easier.
We’ve all been basking in the warmth of cashmere sweaters for months now and are thrilled at the thought of feeling the actual sun on our skin. But before you immediately disqualify your big chunky sweater and toss it into the “see you next winter” pile, try wearing it in a new way. Instead of wearing a big sweater with jeans or tights, try it over a lightweight chiffon maxi skirt or culottes. It’s simple and chic, and when paired with bold accessories you’ve got yourself the perfect transitional outfit.
Slowly brighten your wardrobe by moving denim toward a lighter, brighter wash. Cropped oversized denim jackets are trending and will continue to do so all year, so don’t be afraid to invest in a good silhouette.
A trench coat is the perfect weight and length for transitional weather, especially if you need to spice up your closet. This is a key piece to throw on over a flirty dress for when it’s too cold to stand alone. Try different materials such as silk—this will keep you warm without being too heavy and is still visually appealing.
If we have to pick a transitional add-on to walk you through these tricky days, it would have to be scarf - a LONG scarf to be exact. From rainbow stripes to fair isle patterns, a multi-colored printed scarf will instantly lift up any wintery looks without adding any flashy colors. The length is the key, though - it can be turned into a good cover-up when the weather randomly acts up.
