Switch your slim-fit trousers for a wide-legged style this coming season. Figure-flattering and seriously on-trend, wide-legged trousers are both comfortable and chic. Team with a lightweight knit, blazer and a pair of platforms to elongate your legs. Look out for colors such as navy or khaki that will work equally well in both winter and spring.

A medium-weight jacket is an essential transitional item that every woman needs in her wardrobe. You may already have a black leather option, but why not shake things up with something different? Try a classic utility jacket, perfect for casual lazy days. Team with jeans and a tee for a dressed-down look. Or, go for a grungy edge by pairing the utility jacket with those girly dresses in your closet.

There’s no better time than spring to start introducing bolder hues into your wardrobe. While it can be daunting to wear head-to-toe color, incorporating it into your accessories is an easier way to brighten up your look. A colorful scarf or handbag is one of the quickest ways to add some bright colors into wardrobe.

Lightweight Knit

Bulky jumpers are difficult to wear when the weather is unpredictable. Instead, cultivate a small selection of lightweight knits. They’ll be your best friend during the transitional season. Pair them with jeans, skirts or under blazers for effortless layering. Nautical stripes or single-color styles are amongst the most versatile.

Sleeveless Blazer

Layering is the key to navigating the transeasonal period in style. And, one of the chicest ways to layer is with a tailored waistcoat. Perfect for both workwear and downtime, a sleeveless blazer pulls together any look. Wear over a silk camisole if the weather is warm or over knits for cooler days.

Ankle Boots
