Montana’s winter is nowhere near its end, but that doesn’t mean we don’t still have sunny days to remind us that summer is coming! While the weather slowly warms up, it is the perfect opportunity to start bridging the gap between cold and warm weather trends.

This Fashionista dives into the suede skirt trend and totally rocks it. These sorts of skirts are dominating the fashion world lately and are quickly becoming a must-have item. To combat the cooler temperatures, she pairs it with mock over-the-knee tights, a striped shirt, a trendy green jacket and a vintage coach bag she found on eBay. Score! And to finish off the look, a big smile!

In order to pull this fashion forward outfit together, this Fashionista had to pay special attention to the details. What textures and fabrics will look best together? What color best complements mustard brown? How can you add pattern to an outfit without the look becoming too busy? These are all important questions she had to ask herself and the results, I think you will agree, are fantastic.

How To: To imitate this look, first choose a spring or summer trend you love most such as a skirt, dress or tank top and build the look from there. Layers, layers, layers! Layers are your friend here, especially on colder days. A bandana scarf is the perfect substitute for a necklace that will also keep you warm without the bulkiness of a knit scarf. Leather jackets over flowing kimonos are great texture compliments and will also give you an extra layer of warmth. Don’t be afraid to play around and accessorize and remember, the devil is in the details!
