One thing I’m definitely going to miss when the warmer weather comes in spring is my favorite pom pom hat. I love transitional dressing – dressing for the in-between seasons, because it let’s me layer on. Layers are such an easy way to achieve a cool look. Add a bit of this, and a layer of that peaking underneath, mix in some great textures, and you have a killer spring outfit. The same formula works for fall outfits as well.
Layering is my way of coping with transitional weather style. I’ve always found dressing for transitional spring weather or transitional fall weather more difficult than dressing for weather that’s definitely hot or unmistakably cold. But the one upside of transitional weather is that it lets me play with layers. And I think layers are very chic. Layered looks let me combine the same old pieces in a new way and give me a completely different look.
This casual spring look combines two of my favorite staple pieces – a leather jacket and a fur vest, that up until now I’ve always worn separately. Worn together, both pieces take on a new meaning and become almost unrecognizable. It’s a really chic way to freshen up a transitional spring look without having to buy anything new. Because why buy anything new when, less is more and minimal is chic.
