Stylist Annie Peck is Back with Some Great Transitional Pieces to Get Us Through the Last Days of Winter
With the lovely weather we're having I was inspired this month with transitional pieces to take you from winter to spring . . . and back to winter if we need to!
Try a bare leg with no hose and cotton layers to keep you warm, yet removable if the temperatures rise.
Long sleeve t-shirts and classic mini skirts are great staples to work into the rotation this time of season.
A NOT-SO-BASIC T AND JEANS
For a simple look without all the layers here is this great look of skinny jeans and a unique T. This peplum orange top from Phillip Lim is a simple t-shirt material, but elevated with the peplum style. You can have some fun with the shoes since the rest of the outfit is crisp and clean.
Phillip Lim Top, size 2, originally $75 now $42.50. Beaded necklace, originally $35 now $26.25. Chanel purse, originally $895 now $671.25. Burberry embellished flats, size 37, $95. Braided bracelet, originally $35 now $26.25.
CLASSIC MINI SKIRT AND FLATS
A discrete mini skirt is such an easy base to throw colors with. The trend now is not to wear hose and since the weather is warmer this will be a perfect look. The jacket is optional both for dress up and warm!
It's a safe bet to wear flat shoes or flat boots with a miniskirt – so then it won't appear too short.
Brunello Cucinelli blouse, size XS, $85. Floral cashmere scarf, originally $65 now $32.50. St. Pierre leather mini skirt, size S, originally $45 now $22.50. Bottega Venetta green handbag, SOLD. Feraggamo flats, size 7, $85. Marc by Marc Jacobs jacket, size S, $65.
LACE IS EVERYWHERE THIS SPRING
Lace is really in right now and so now is the time to really have fun with it! Mix metal tones in to add a little more edge.
statement blouse speaks for itself
This Hermes blouse speaks for itself and is very hard to come by – it's eclectic and beautiful! All you need is a simple pair of jeans and a fun shoe! Tuck it in or leave it untucked and flowy.
Hermes blouse, size 38, originally $325 now $243.75. AG charcoal skinny jean, size 28, originally $45 now $22.50. Manolo Blahnik sling backs, size 38, originally $75 now $37.50. Coach etched bangle, $60. Sterling silver necklace with amber pendant, $45.
COZY COTTON SWEATERS, NO TIGHTS
This is a great transitional outfit that takes your cotton and cozy sweaters and pears them with a skirt and booty… Only this time without tights. I recommend wearing your favorite white v-neck tee underneath, just in case you do get too warm by the end of the day!
Ella Moss sweater, size S, SOLD. Chanel skirt, size 38, originally $295 now $221.25. Cipriani wide brown belt, was $45 now $33.75. Coach handbag, $65. Chanel booties, size 37.5, $425. Vintage gold chain dangle earring, were $35 now $17.50.
