We’ve hit that time of year when getting ready for the day starts to get a little tricky. You look out your window in the morning and things are looking cloudy and cold, but by the time early afternoon hits, the clouds are gone and things have warmed up. These late months of winter and early months of spring provide a challenge, and we are here to help! Take a look at our top wardrobe essentials for transitioning to warmer weather.
Cardigans are at the very top of our list for a reason. They make it incredibly easy to add an extra, lightweight layer to just about any ensemble, making them an absolute must for maintaining comfort and style in tricky weather.
What’s so great about cardigans is that they’re easy to take on and off. If you have one on to shield yourself from the morning chill only to find that it’s warm out a few hours later, there’s no need to change your entire outfit. Simply take off your cardigan and you’re good to go.
Skirts are a fantastic option for the transitioning weather. Easily pair your favorite pencil skirt with a sweater or a cute, long-sleeved blouse. If it gets warm out, it’s easy to roll up your sleeves and carry on with your day. With so many different ways to style a skirt, we firmly believe that they’re a must all year-round, but especially when considering what clothing to wear when the weather is changing.
The Right Jacket
Having the right kinds of outerwear is something you will be so happy to have during these funny months! Perhaps it’s an especially windy day, or an unexpected rain shower comes. Having a good, lightweight jacket to keep you warm and protected is definitely something that you will want to have on hand. Look for something in a color that is easily paired with other items in your closet, such as rust brown or olive.
Long Sleeve Dresses
An easy way to look effortlessly put together is to wear a cute dress. One piece of clothing and you’re ready for the day, what could be better? Consider getting a handful of long sleeve dresses for the months when you’re dealing with transitioning weather. If you find the weather warming up throughout the day, it’s easy to roll up the sleeves on your dress and carry on with your day, no problem.
Top off your outfits with the right accessories to round out your ensemble and serve you well. You might consider keeping a bunch of lightweight scarves on hand to add some extra coverage to your neck when needed. You’ll also want to make sure you have a good purse. Think about it – there’s a possibility that you’ll be shedding quite a few layers throughout the day. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a place to put them so you don’t have to carry them in your hand?
So as you consider what you need to do to prepare for the changing weather, be sure to take some of our wardrobe must-haves into consideration! Finding the balance between comfort and fashion doesn’t have to be complicated – with the right pieces, it’s easy to put together outfits that are cute and serve you well.
