The transition from winter to spring can really take a toll on our health, as well as our sartorial choices. Dressing for the temperamental weather is challenging, to say the least. However, you can totally win at the game with lightweight layers, which look fabulous while getting the job done.
Don’t pull out those winter pieces, because spring layering goes beyond jackets and coats; it dives into the realms of basics. We’ve picked out five key pieces that you must have (if you don’t already) to weather the changes. Also, admit it, layers are slimming and so much fun to work with. Are you ready for them?
The bomber jacket transcends seasons and it’s the lightweight lining and quilting that can usher it into spring. Pair it with dresses or shorts and play around with prints and materials. A silk bomber will do just the trick for those uncertain temperatures while making you look edgy. For those extra chilly days, throw on a cropped sweater under the jacket and you’ll be good to go.
