It’s winter, so it’s cold, ya know? Although I’ve worked in the fashion industry for 9 years, it still annoys me that Spring pieces start trickling their way into stores and online late January/early February. If you live in a place that has a winter, you get it. Sure, it’s been pretty mild in New York City, but it’s still COLD. I still need my chunky sweaters and warm coats! Transitional dressing seems to be so hard to figure out – but hopefully I can help with these easy tips!

How To Tackle Transitional Dressing

Add a pop of color

While I’m not a HUGE fan of color (sorry not sorry), I do think adding some pop of color to your winter outfits is a good way to get ready for Spring. I gravitate towards sweaters – usually cashmere – in fun colors. Cashmere takes color SO well, and I love that I don’t need to necessarily wear them, I can throw them over my shoulders to complete the look!

Utilize commuter shoes

This is a tip for my people who go into the office. When we’re in this weird transitional period for fashion, sometimes I just don’t want to wear boots. I love my ballet flats so much, and sometimes they just go with the look I’m trying to achieve. If I know I want to wear a particular shoe to work, but the temperatures are telling me otherwise, I put on a sneaker, and throw my flats into my work bag.

Build a versatile wardrobe

I’m really trying to build out my wardrobe with pieces that I can wear most of the year. I mentioned the cashmere sweater above, and that’s usually my go to example of something that can be worn all year round. These pieces will allow you to switch up a look and make it more seasonally appropriate. Another good example of a versatile piece are these pants. I’ve had them for over a year now – and own them in 4 colors – and I can’t recommend them enough. They are a great, drapey fabric and are great for all four seasons!

Transitional dressing can now be a no brainer with the help of these tips – hopefully now we can just get dressed!!!
