As the ice melts away and we greet spring (with huge, huge smiles, obviously), we’re all facing our closets with similar questions. It’s no easy task dressing for the in-between seasons, when it’s not warm enough to go bare legs, but not cold enough to wrap up in layers. Here’s one tip on pairing your favorites from both season into one great look, care of style blog Swellmayde, featured below.
This look includes a great medium wash denim jacket draped over a black floral dress (the color of the dress, or lack there of, makes it perfect for early spring), with a black leather bag and booties. Both of the accessories have a nice touch of metallic hardware, making this the ideal ensemble for between seasons. See more photos here.
