It was a beautiful day in New York. The sun was shining, the temperature was perfect, and there was the occasional slight breeze. It has been an unusually snowy, wet, cold winter here so everyone is waiting with bated breath for actual spring weather. Hence, why there were so many people inappropriately dressed people walking through the streets of Manhattan today. This is the season for transitional wear, not full on summer attire.
Layers are your friend. If you have a warm weather top that you’re dying to wear you can do so if you pair it with a light outerwear garment. A denim jacket is nice contrast to a silk blouse for example. As it gets warmer throughout the day take it off, and when the temp drops at night throw it back on.
Light outerwear is key. You can trade in your heavy, lined coats for lighter ones. Keep it stylish and opt for a cropped leather biker jacket, which will go nicely with boyfriend jeans and relaxed t-shirt.
Updated cardigans and blazers are key layering pieces. These aren’t your mom’s blazers or your grandmother’s cardigans. Choose blazers in fun shapes, colors, patterns, and textures. A blazer with no lapels can be a chic finishing touch to a nice pair of boot cut pants and heels. You can add shape to an open cardigan by adding a waist belt and statement necklace for a complete look.
Vests are a great spring outerwear piece. Go for denim or leather for a cute grunge look.
