It’s no doubt that Chicago has four seasons, but it depends on the day what season you have! Especially now that it is between winter and spring. It can be 70 degrees and sunny one day, then 30 degrees and snowing the next. What is a Fashionista/Fashionisto to do when the weather is so unpredictable? Layer! Stop debating about wearing a sweater or a T-shirt. Wearing layers is key to crazy weather, because when the temperature drops, you can bundle up with a warm cardigan and jacket. But when the sun comes out, the layers can easily come off.
This Fashionista perfectly layered up for another unpredictable day in Chicago. She even captured a pretty spring color palette! Her rose pink shirt and army green cardigan are both from T.J. Maxx. Her tan jacket is from Garage, which layers very nicely and allowed her to stay warm when out in the park. Her jeans are Dollhouse brand from Goodwill, which she rolled at the ankles above her Kohl’s brand brown booties. Her floral statement necklace is also from Kohl’s and adds a nice pop of color.
Even though I live in Chicago now, I never leave my apartment without my mom’s voice in my head saying, “Rachel, did you bring a jacket?” There are so many ways to fashionably stay warm. Layering can include everything from cardigans to bomber jackets to vests and even scarves. Having layers also allows for mixing and matching to change up your look every day. Even if you’re not in a state with four seasons, layers are also important to keep warm when the sun goes down or in air-conditioned places. Stay fashionable and warm, Fashionistas/os!
