Trends you can wear now and spring

Now that the seasons are changing, the question on everyones’ mind is what to wear? What outfits will keep you warm in the morning and at night when the temperatures drop, yet cool during the day when its warm! Picking pieces that will work now and into spring can be a little cumbersome. That is why I created a look that taps into both seasons. This outfit not only works for the up and down weather but it also incorporates both fall/winter and spring trends.

April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, however it’s been raining in Atlanta and New York for the last couple of weeks. I guess it’s fair to say that we will get May flowers in March. The fast-forward weather means that it’s time to start transitioning your wardrobe, and planning for dicey weather. I was in New York two weeks ago for fashion week, and found myself caught in the rain quite a few times. Not only did it rain, but the weather was unseasonably warm. I found it hard to create looks that would work in the rain and unpredictable weather, hence I figured If I’m having issues, you might have these issues too. That is why I came up with this look and some pointers for creating outfits in unpredictable weather.

Pointers for creating a transition outfit

Although long skirts are not ideal for rain, they are a great pick for unpredictable weather. A sheer floral skirt taps into the spring floral trend, and the long length will keep your legs warm when temperatures drop. A lose-knit chunky sweater may be bulky, however the lose knit makes it light weight and easy to wear. This feature makes the sweater effortless in ever-changing temperatures.  A light weight leather pair of booties are also a great transition option. Calf leather is breathable and with the help of a pair of socks work well in cooler weather. It also helps that wearing booties in the spring is a major trend. If you don’t have a pair of stylish calf leather booties, grab a pair now. Last tip, because chunky knits are bulky consider belting them or style it with a belt bag like I did.
