Today’s look comes from Lucky Magazine’s “street style” photo collection. Their piece on 31 Looks for March is a great primer if you’re struggling with how to dress in the still-chilly spring weather. This outfit is perfectly layered, simply styled and in a color palette that doesn’t belong to any single season. Here’s how to recreate it.
I love a collarless coat. This navy one from Zara would be perfect for chilly spring days. Not a big fan of the collarless look? Swap in this Mango trench, or you can get the best of both worlds with this Asos collarless trench.
Short-sleeve sweaters look great over blouses (both short and long sleeve) and solo with pencil skirts and trousers. Land’s End makes a lovely, affordable short-sleeve sweater in misses, petite, plus and tall sizes. They also come in nearly two-dozen colors and cost under-$50, not a bad deal.
These ankle length pants from J.Crew have a slim but not skinny style. I tried them on last week and found they were a little too full in the thigh to be flattering on me. This is something that can be fixed with alterations, but I’d rather try a few other styles first.
LOFT has a pair of bi-stretch pants that I would like to see on a person who’s not a model. I also put these WHBM ankle-length “perfect” pants on the list. Plus-size? These Michael Kors ankle pants look like they might be worth a try.
For the accessories, I chose these Sole Society pumps because they expose enough skin to help lengthen the look of your legs. The pointed-toe also helps in this regard.
The bag in the photo is blue and white tweed, unfortunately I couldn’t find anything similar in a less-than-Marc Jacobs price point. This Minkoff printed bag is a good alternate choice. Need something a bit cheaper? This blue and grey jacquard bowler bag is a good choice at ($80).
I would complete the look with classic red nails and a low-updo. I like this combination because it continues the sophisticated simplicity of the look.
