Layering

It’s easy to see the weather report say 65 and sunny and think it’s time to break out your spaghetti straps. Trust us when we say, that temperature is not as warm as you remember. With windchill, the mid-60’s can be more of a light sweater and jean jacket kind of day.

Our advice? Layering is key. Layering with any light cotton, including button downs and sweaters, will provide you warmth when you’re outside and won't have you overheating once you get indoors. Adding a jean jacket is a great piece as it can act as your outside jacket, or as the finishing touch to your outfit that can easily be worn indoors. It's especially useful when the office air conditioning gets crazy cold.

Neutrals

When in doubt, stick to neutrals. The sun may be shining but your lime green tube top might be a premature pick for the transitioning temperatures. Save those fun colors for when it’s consistently no-jacket weather. In the interim, break out the army greens to give subtle saturation to your outfit. Sneak in those brighter tones more subtly through pairing accessories like scarves and bracelets with your neutral colored dresses, shirts and/or jackets. Army green tends to pop best when teamed with creams, salmons or purples.

Patterns

Just because you’re holding off on wearing your brightest hues, doesn’t mean your outfit has to be drab. Be playful with your prints to add depth to your ensemble. Stripes are a spring staple and very easy to style. Tucking a navy striped sweater into a long jersey knit skirt is perfect for an effortless weekend look.

Want to pack a bigger punch? Have your outfit bloom with florals. Cotton-finds like a floral knit maxi dress can be dressed up or dressed down for a work lunch or dinner date and because of the breathable fabric, it can be taken right through into summer months flawlessly.
