It’s that time of year where the term, sweater weather has lost its luster. We’re all dreaming of lighter layers and sunny skies, but… it’s still a little cool out.
The most common items I’m asked are: “what shirts do you recommend that are easy but disguise my tummy?” and “What jeans do you recommend?”.
I tried on 3 outfits that should answer both questions AND show you some options for styling your outfits during this moody weather season. One day it’s 60 degrees and the next it’s 40 and raining. I’ve got ‘chu mama!
If you haven’t watched my try on session in Stories, you can find it in my HIGHLIGHTS.
The weather going into Spring can be so moody, be prepared. What starts out as a cool day and ends as a cool evening may have some sunny and warm(ish) temps mid day– be prepared. Layer your spring tops and sweaters with light jackets and cardigans. Opt for tops with sleeves so that you can forgo the layer, but made of materials that won’t make you too warm.
Wearing white denim? Cool… it’s not too early! Try pairing them with leather or suede booties to keep it seasonally appropriate. Layer your leather moto jacket over a soft floral dress to create a fashion forward look that keeps you warm but allows you to wear that Spring dress. Pair your cozy oversized sweaters with fun and flirty skirts or dresses in lighter jersey or silky materials.
Did you know that monochromatic outfits are a stylists tip for looking like your outfit is more expensive than it is? We already know that all black always looks pulled together, but have you ever thought of monochromatic looks in light grays or blush? Maybe even oatmeal. Even if you aren’t sold on wearing one color head to toe, wearing muted neutrals is a great way to transition into Spring. Lighten up dark denim with a blush sweater. Throw a brown suede jacket over your oatmeal sweater and create a Spring forward, two tone style. Try losing the dark nail colors of winter and opt for an off white (like Essie’s marshmallow) or super light pink (Essie’s ballet slippers is always a fave).
I hope these tips helped you decide how to dress as this weather tries to decide how it wants to act!
