With spring just around the corner, it is time to break out that wardrobe of dresses, skirts and hip sunglasses suited for the warmer weather. The transition from winter to spring can be tricky when the weather is not warm enough for a T-shirt and shorts, however, incorporating a light jacket and boots, like this Fashionista has done, is perfect for those early days of March. Being outside with friends, especially on the weekends, is a great opportunity to put together a stylish, spring look. So do not be afraid to dress up!

I caught this Fashionista on her way to Saturday brunch with friends. She explained that she was experiencing an “in-between” with her wardrobes, as she was not completely in spring weather mode yet and was still hanging on to her favorite winter leathers. So…why not include both looks?

She chose to wear a simple, light dress paired with a chic, leather jacket for her weekend adventure. The black of her fringe boots complements the striped dress perfectly and balances the bottom half of the outfit with the top. The higher neckline of the dress peaks out from the solid black of the jacket, giving the neckline a nice touch, as well as bringing the eyes up to meet her trendy Ray-Ban shades. From blue to black to those jazzy sunglasses, this Fashionista knows exactly how to work both winter and spring in one look. Overall, a perfect mix of color and texture!

One Simple Change: Not only is this look perfect for a brunch with friends, but it can also be transformed into a great outfit for class during the weekdays. Perhaps swap the leather jacket for a longer black, knit sweater? Something a bit cozier and more casual for your day-to-day routine. Happy brunching and cheers to spring! We are ready for you!
