STYLE GURU STYLE: Don't Say Goodbye

STYLE GURU STYLE: Don't Say Goodbye

As we head into summer, we begin to say goodbye to our favorite fall and spring pieces. I don’t know about everyone else, but there is something a bit sad about parting ways with your favorite coats and boots. But of course, the beautiful weather makes it all a bit easier.

Mixing pieces from each season is a good way to make the peaceful transition into warmer weather, but this is often easier said than done. The simplest way to do this is by adding a layering piece. Layering is also great for this prickly and indecisive weather we’ve been having.

This season, lightweight, duster-esque trench coats have made their way into Fashionistas’ wardrobes again. Thankfully, I bought this gray-beige piece a few years ago and have been dying to reintroduce it into my everyday looks.

To bring this piece into the warmer seasons, pair it with a breezy white T-shirt and a fitted denim skirt! Pairing the short hemline of the denim skirt with the long hemline of the coat plays with dimension and helps to elongate your body in an otherwise shortening look.

I finished off the look with a favorite fall/winter trend of this past season: the loafer and fishnet socks combination. Adding another cold weather trend helps round out the look, and makes a somewhat bipolar ensemble appear more cohesive. It also adds a bit of edge to an otherwise soft and classic outfit.

So, Fashionistas, begin parting ways with the old and making room for the new by mixing and matching different trends and seasons. It’s also a fun way to play with your style as we await the days where its just too hot to wear anything but a sun dress.
