Is this weather crazy or what? One day, it's 80 degrees and sunny. The next, we're subjected to freezing temperatures and frigid winds. The office is freezing but the outside is hot. Puffer or trench? Tights or bare legs? Are open-toe shoes a bad idea? These are just a few of the questions we mull over each morning when checking the forecast. Because, in the early weeks of spring, anything is possible. But, I came up with some tips to make sure dressing for the season isn't quite so guess-and-check.
1. Mix and match new purchases with your wintertime staples so that the unpredictable weather doesn't get the better of you. Maybe a spring dress with some leather boots and a maxi cardigan.
2. Go basic: Pair your black and white pieces for a fresh-off-look. Leather pants and a lightweight jacket (with sleeves you can roll up) create a look that's cool-girl dressing at its best.
3. Wear a pastel colored shirt and wide-legged pant. it's an easy and on-trend way to brighten up your closet without breaking out shorts yet.
4. Layers are better than a thick sweater. You don't want to be melting in the middle of the day.
5. Wear your dark jumpsuit with a denim jacket to give a fresher look, and maybe some colored heels.
6. Go simple but modern: Dark-wash denim and a colored graphic tee for those casual days.
Last weekend I didn't know what to wear for dinner since it was 65 degrees at night but during the day was 75 degrees, so I chose to mix and match new purchases with wintertime staples.I wore a light weight short black dress to show some legs, chunky boots and a gold/black bomber jacket to finish the look and to NOT be cold :).
