One minute it’s snowing; the next it’s sunny and beautiful; then it’s below freezing and windy. The few weeks of late Winter and earl Spring are fashionably unpredictable and sometimes, it is impossible to tell what to wear or what to bring. Here are a few tips for looking stylish and being weather appropriate.
- Always be prepared to grab the umbrella. When you wake up in the morning, check the local forecast (you don’t even have to get out of bed).
- Dress the part. Say goodbye to the chunky, bulky, heavy-knit winter clothes and start to balance more pieces that you can transition into the spring. Less bubble coats and hoodies, more blazers and A-line coats. Less Uggs. Or rather, no Uggs ever again.
- Layers, layers, layers. Mix structures, neutral tones, patterns, and fabrics. Contrast and pattern mixing is very trendy, but be sure not to overdo it. A tank top, sweater, and trench-coat is a do. Three t-shirts stacked is a don’t. Cashmere and cotton or merino wool and silk look great next to each other. Tan, navy blue, maroon, and hunter green can easily be mixed and matched with one another: you can’t go wrong with earthy tones.
- Dare to show some skin. If it isn’t raining, ditch the knee high’s or stockings. Bare legs and ballet flats are doable, especially if you pair the flats with a longer top (perhaps a dress or a trench). Real shoes look better than your go-to Hunter’s.
Hope these tips are helpful!
