Even though spring weather is notoriously hard to predict, it does give us a taste of the perfect 70-degree days we enjoy all summer long.
Still, every year, fashionistas have trouble figuring out what to wear as the temperatures slowly rise.
When it’s cool in the morning, hot in the afternoon, and cold at night, you need clothes that are both versatile and transitional.
Fortunately, layering is the answer to success.
Wearing a light trench over a floral maxi dress is an easy way to go from the office to a romantic dinner date.
Would you prefer something more understated?
Wear your favorite jeans and sneakers with a comfortable knit outfit for a laid-back look that will last all day.
There are seven tried-and-true wardrobe formulas to help you make the most of spring, no matter what your personal style is.
