Transitioning from Winter to Spring can be complicated when it comes to your wardrobe. Mornings can often be 30 degrees, while afternoon temperatures can rise to 50 degrees or more.
We, at the HB offices, often found ourselves lugging around our heavy coats instead of wearing them when midday hit and then rushing to put them back on come evening, so we asked our resident celebrity stylist Becca Alexis to help us.
Here are her tips on creating transitional outfits that look and feel good at any temperature!
For the Utilitarian:
“Pair a long-sleeve pima cotton shirt with a long-sleeve chunky knitted cardigan, then top it off with a suede vest! I like to get vintage men’s suede jackets from the 70’s and take the sleeves out! Belt it to keep feminine and modern.”
For the Sophisticate:
“Layer a silk blouse over a long-sleeve fitted shirt, then pair it with a bright convertible sweater and a light cotton scarf.”
“Wear heavy winter coats if the highest temperature of the day is below 40 degrees. Anything above that keep the bubble coat in the closet! Instead, wear wool or cashmere coats.”
