Recently I was working with a friend to update and prepare her wardrobe for spring. There were several fall pieces that we kept in rotation because, when paired with lighter fabrics and brighter colors, they created perfect combinations for the transitional weather we experience as the earth continues to move closer to the sun.
Outfit #1: Boho Chic
Pair your burgundy jeans with a flowy tank, funky fringe booties and a long beaded necklace and you’re ready for “festival season” (can you believe the fashion industry created a “season” based on Coachella?!).
Outfit #2 : Brunch-Ready
Create a causal, weekend look, perfect for spring mornings at the farmer’s market, by layering a chambray shirt over a striped tank. Add a heeled sandal for just an ounce of sophistication.
Outfit #1: Black & White (with spots)
Break out the white jeans, but tie in your black blazer with a silk shirt that has both neutrals in the pattern. Add a slingback sandal and the look is polished, even with the distressed jeans.
Outfit #2: Cool Preppy
Mixing styles and textures can add interest to an outfit. Pair your blazer with a casual tee and cargo-pocket track pants, and you instantly elevate an otherwise casual look. Add fashion, slip-on sneakers for an extra cool touch.
Outfit#1: Edgy Sophisticate
Wear your favorite heeled booties with a tailored dress and bare legs (bring them out of hibernation!). Then add a little more funk with a hooded denim jacket and a graphic scarf.
Outfit #2: Laid-Back Cool
Ready to take-it-easy in the spring sunshine? Pair a slim-fit, boyfriend jean and cropped sweater with your classic bootie. Make sure to keep the rays off your face with a fun fedora.
What’s your favorite way to transition a fall staple into the spring rotation? Please keep your feedback coming…and thanks for reading!
