Spring Fashion: Wear it Now, Wear it Later
Colorful, dreamy, fresh, and springy—the stores are full of bright colors, filmy fabrics, and loose, blousy silhouettes.
The streets, on the other hand, are full of snow. And it’s 30 degrees outside, not exactly the right weather for those springy separates.
But if you can’t control your shopping impulse to stock up on warm-weather favorites, take heart—with a few styling tricks, you can wear them later and wear them right this minute.
In the winter, pair creamy pastels with crisp black boots and separates. Once springtime arrives, a white top and nude sandals are more seasonal. Skimmer jeans, $69.95
Lace Crop Top
In the winter, wear this crop top underneath deep V necks or jackets as an extra layer. Lace crop top, $30
Ash Wedge Sneakers
These wedge sneakers will be your summer footwear go-to, but while it’s still frosty, use them to keep your feet warm. Use them to add a dose of style to a typical jeans-and-coat look. Ash wedge sneakers, $265
Chiffon Sequined Blouse
For big meetings or big dates, wear this sequined tank as a shell underneath a blazer. Later you can wear it alone to show off toned arms. Chiffon sequined blouse, $60.16
You can wear this filmy button-down as a swimsuit cover-up or as the perfect long-sleeve option. Make it cold-weather friendly by using it as a layering piece under sweaters or vests. Convertible-sleeve shirt, $49.90
Kate Spade Mondrian Shopper
This tote is made of coated poplin, so it’s safe from snows and showers. That means you can pretty much carry it year-round, and we encourage you to do so. Mondrian shopper, $148
These will be your signature stepping-out shoes with flirty sundresses, but for now, wear a pair of black tights underneath, or wear them with skinny pants on dry days. Peep-toe T-straps, $89.95
McGinn Collection Silk Dress
You’ll wear this dress to work, to weddings, and to brunch once it gets warmer. For now, pair the silky texture with a chunky, nubby cardigan sweater. Silk dress, $116
Trina Turk Corbin Shorts
To make these springy shorts winter-appropriate, wear with cream-colored cable-knit tights and ankle booties. Colorblocked shorts, $228
Replace a solid blazer with this graphic floral version. Once spring hits, it’ll be the perfect light jacket for chilly nights. Floral blazer, $24.99
