For today’s post, I wanted to focus on fun colors. It is so dreary and cold here that I decided to create a “now and later” post that details how to take winter clothing and transition to spring or summer. Starting with two staple items makes this task a little easier; a beautiful and simple teal tank top from Forever21 (that comes in 5 other colors) and a pair of skinny yet forgiving ankle pants are two great pieces that can be transformed based on the skilled pairing of accessories. During the winter, a beautiful cream blazer would look fantastic with the tank and pants. Winter white has become more and more popular over the past few years, and don’t let the old adage “don’t wear white after Labor Day or before Easter” deter you from investing in a piece if you really love it. This Kate Spade scarf, while very expensive, plays up the colors beautifully and in a very sophisticated way. It emits a warmth that is still very chic. I thought about pairing a d’orsay pump with the outfit, but when I saw these phenomenal Zara shoes on sale I knew they were the ones. The stacked purple heel is an unexpected twist that is professional and fun at the same time. A large leather bag is the perfect accessory for winter since you can stash so many extras in it (such as gloves, a hat, and a portable heater.) Fast forward a few months and take yourself to a warm May afternoon; pairing some bright coral sandals and huge gold necklace transform this look into beachy-chic. I have never been brave enough to wear a fedora but think it would look fabulous tied into this look. A big yellow bag and pair of sunnies finish off this look with minimal effort for maximum effect. Do you all have any tips for transforming looks between seasons? I’d love to hear them! Xoxo!
