Spring is on the horizon, and we’re more than ready to say so long to winter weather, but don't pack away your oversize jackets and cozy sweaters just yet. The temps are warming, but we’re still not in the clear. The days ahead promise plenty of transitional weather that can make dressing and staying comfortable tricky. If you’re wondering what to wear in 50-degree weather, we have a few ideas.
Take a cue from Farfetch Fashion Director Yasmin Sewell and layer a bell-sleeve top under a short-sleeve dress to avoid bare arms and add a bit of drama in one fell swoop. Consider MyTheresa Buyer Tiffany Hsu’s unconventional evening look for your next night out by pairing a knit turtleneck and denim jacket with your flounciest skirt (Prada’s pink marabou feathers optional but never a bad idea). Or try Tank CEO Caroline Issa’s easy, sophisticated combo of an olive green sweater and jeans under a tailored plaid coat. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
Below are 11 foolproof outfits to wear for a spring day that’s still a bit brisk, plus shop velvet jumpsuits, classic scarves, and statement outerwear that make layering a cinch.
