Light sweaters & cardigans are good pieces to keep in your closet to help make the transition from the colder Winter months to the more breezy & cool Spring days.
Polka Dot Sweaters: Chinti & Parker Polka Dot Cashmere Sweater ($560) vs. Old Navy Printed Pullover in "Navy Polka Dot" ($24.94).
Snow Leopard: Rebecca Taylor Leopard Print Button Hoodie ($149) at Last Call vs. Old Navy Printed Pullover in "Animal" ($24.94).
3/4 Length striped dresses are a good transitional staple; they offer lots of layering options and pair well with tights, cargo vests & bright solid print scarves. I chose lavender skinnies as a good transitional piece (I make my own rules here). I wear jeans all year long and am particularly enamored with the all of the color options I'm seeing lately.
Lavender Skinnies: Current/Elliot The Ankle Skinny Jeans ($198) vs. Rich & Skinny Legacy Jean in Lavender ($56.99).
