Transitional Dressing: Wear Now or Later

Posted: Feb 03 2017

Choosing an outfit this time of year can really be a challenge, especially here in Southern California. The sun starts to shine a little brighter, and we are tempted to throw on our flirty dresses and sandals, but by sundown, the cold air returns, and we are reminded that the pleasant days of spring and summer are still far off.
Cue transitional dressing, the art of mixing seasonal apparel to create the perfect in-between ensemble. Mastering this skill is beneficial for staying trendy-yet-comfortable during these indecisive months. Read our list ahead for cute and stylish pieces you can easily work now, or during the upcoming warmer months.

Since spring is still considered sweater-weather, snagging some new pullovers will do your closet good. Pair your knits with a denim skirt, or distressed jeans or shorts. This is an on-trend way to incorporate both winter and spring fashion. Note: a sweater in a cropped silhouette will stay wearable for months to come.

Bomber jackets in bold colors and patterns are a perfect way to add springtime colors into your wardrobe now. Plus, it will keep you warm and cozy, and will be a cool statement piece come spring.

Layering is a between-season way to start wearing those new spring styles. For now, pair a knit cardigan over a flirty dress, or rock that new cropped sweater with a bomber jacket, skinnies, and mules. Down the line, wear your spring dress alone and flaunt some skin, and pair your cropped sweater with cutoffs for an edgier getup.
