Spring Summer Fashion Formula #2: Bridge Winter and Spring with Layers

April 3rd, 2009

Spring Summer Fashion Formula #2
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

How do you dress when the mornings are cool and wintrish, but afternoons feel like Spring?  We have the answer: layering, layering, layering.  Here’s a lightly layered outfit that’s just a bit coquettish:

1.  Start with a floaty dress, layered over a pair of jeans for warmth.
2.  Layer on a cardigan sweater.  If you want to mix things up, you can try a patterned sweater - or a sweater in a bright color.  And for really cool mornings, try a thicker, chunkier knit and/or toss on a jacket.
3.  Accessorize with a rich handbag, a brightly colored hat, and a pair of bow-adorned flats.  We love how the yellow hat makes the outfit instantly playful - and how the rich royal blue of the shoes really pops against the yellow.

How do you dress for weather that’s half Winter and half Spring?  Share your style with us in the comments!

    My favourite way to feel spring-y when it’s still cold out is a spring skirt with warm tights and fun rain boots. And at this time of year I’m almost never without my thin knit beret; it goes a long way in keeping me warm without adding a lot of bulk, and helps protect my hair from the rain.

    My favourite dress at half Winter and half Springs is thick. I dont use thin clothes. Because half winter is enough for making people sick. But my soul is feeling the spring too much that time from without not to be sick. Thanks.

    My favorite winter to spring transition piece is a scarf in a springy color!
