This time of year is always tough when it comes to shopping for me. I don’t want to invest in any more sweaters or cold weather items because spring is (hopefully) on the horizon, but I’m not into buying a ton of spring items just yet. If I can’t wear it right away, I don’t want it!
So if I am not adding sweaters or spring/summer items to my wardrobe what am I adding? Transition pieces! Items that can be layered and worn now and when the temperatures start to rise.
Cardigans have always been a go-to of mine. I really love to keep them casual, but I do love tossing them on over a dress from time to time to dress them up. Regardless of whether or not they are dressed up or down, it is such a great, layering go-to piece in my wardrobe!
A black cardigan is such a great closet staple, and there are so many variations! While a basic boyfriend cardigan is a great for everyday, I love wearing one with a little bit of a twist, like the peplum hem on this cardigan! It is really lightweight so it’s great for layering and transitioning into the warmer months.
There is something so classic about pairing black and white together. When all else fails and you aren’t sure what to wear, toss on a white tee, a pair of skinny jeans and an adorable cardigan!
The style of this navy cardigan is also a favorite of mine. I am always draw to an open cardigan that drapes. I feel like it is super flattering for me. Like black, navy is such a classic color. I consider it a neutral and pair it with so many colors-white, gray, mustard, green and even red!
These particular skinny jeans are really comfortable-they have a ton of stretch to them, which is important for me. I have got to have some stretch in the jeans I wear!
I am a sucker for a good graphic tee. I find myself wearing them day to day. With denim jackets, cardigans, or by themselves. This camo tee is a great alternative to your everyday solid tees. I love the length of it-I prefer longer tees-and it is super soft. Just like a lightweight cardigan, it is perfect to wear now with a cozy sweater and a pair of boyfriend jeans, or with a pair of distressed denim shorts when it gets warmer!
A good pair of jeans is another key item I like to have to transition from one season to the next. I personally prefer jeans over shorts, so I tend to wear jeans year round. I love the cuff of these jeans-they look cute with sneakers, but will look equally as cute with sandals!
What are some of your key pieces you keep in your wardrobe to help transition you from one season to another? Cardigans, graphic tees and jeans are my go-to’s but I would love to hear yours!
