The Work Edit: Bring on the Spring(ish) Pleats
Feb 11, 2019
Even though there’s almost two-feet of snow in my front yard, it’s time to start thinking about the winter-to-spring transition. Pairing sweaters with springier pieces is a great way to blend the two seasons together. Here is a great outfit to get you through until the weather actually warms.
(Please be soon.)
This outfit blends a versatile navy turtleneck with a flirty pleated skirt. Adding the boots pulls the pieces together and keeps the look seasonally appropriate (or just keeps your calves from getting frostbite). Bring in some simple gold accessories, and you have a classic combination for surviving the nippy transition into spring weather.
Two. Washable knits are a miracle for those of us without access to reliable, affordable dry cleaning. Banana Republic has a lot of great options. I also like this crewneck sweater. Need a v-neck? This Bloomingdale’s cashmere sweater is a good option even though it’s not washable.
Three. I LOVE this skirt. It’s the kind of piece people will stop to ask you where you bought it, and no one will believe it was $72. Looking for a solid navy option? Try this pleated tulle midi-skirt from BR or this inexpensive Shein skirt. Plus-size? Modcloth has some great options, including this simple pleated skirt.
Four. A simple watch is a great addition to any wardrobe. This watch is a nice option. If you prefer something less fancy, this $99 Nixon watch is great.
Five. These cognac boots from Loeffler Randall are gorgeous. I love the lower block heel for comfort. Looking for something similar for less? These Kenneth Cole boots are nice. Or go with this short pair from INC for something more relaxed.
