With the Wisconsin winter finally melting away and the sun beginning to cast its first conquering springtime rays on the Midwest, piecing together weather-appropriate ensembles can be tough. Chilly mornings often give way to afternoon heat waves and everything in between. Attempting to select transitional outfits is not an unfamiliar spring ritual to the Wisconsin native. This Fashionista effortlessly nails the art of bringing the perfect spring look back to life.
The first piece that immediately catches your eye of this Fashionista’s ensemble is a pair of army-esque jeggings. The forest green, slightly cropped pants feature leathered knee patches, instantly giving the look a fashion-forward feel while a comfy and casual long sleeved T-shirt dress is paired on top. This contrast makes the look ideal for class or weekend plans. Extra layering of an oversized, cozy and charcoal-colored cardigan on top of the T-shirt dress is the perfect transitional piece for inconsistent or varying spring weather.
However, what really tops off and completes the entire look is this Fashionista’s choice of spring accessories. A perfectly styled straw fedora balances out the dark color palette of the ensemble and provides an essential springtime vibe. Stacked silver and rose gold rings in addition to a beaded statement necklace keep the look funky, fun and playful.
How To: Style some of your favorite fall and winter pieces by accessorizing them with spring accessories! These can include your latest pair of sunnies (round and retro cat eyes are my current favorites), a straw fedora, as modeled by the Fashionista above, or killer lace-up flats. The transition from winter to spring is the perfect time to mix and match all seasonal pieces within your closet. Have fun! Juxtaposition is always eye-catching.
