It’s that time of year again: you wear your favorite sundress to work and are shivering by lunchtime, get caught in a rainstorm and ruin your favorite suede pumps, or have to drag your heavy wool coat all over town when the sun comes out unexpectedly midday. Spring is notoriously unpredictable, but Chic Girls know that the key to surviving a season in which it can be 70 degrees and sunny one day and 45 and rainy the next is a few versatile pieces that work with both your warm AND cool weather staples. Check out the lovely managers from Urban Chic Baltimore as they show you how to work a great item in multiple ways.
Transitional Item #1: Joie, Shara Top in Endive, $158
Ashley is rocking a printed Joie top that does double duty in cool and warm temps. Pair it with a drapey cardigan and boots to fight the chill; then show it off with cropped jeans, snake-print flip flops, and fun jewelry on nicer days.
Transitional Item #2: Parker, Cami Ruffle Dress in Baby Floral, $195
Jamie’s fun floral-printed dress screams gorgeous spring day, but luckily she knows how to style it even when the weather isn’t as pretty as this piece. With a chunky sweater, wide belt, and wellies, she can stomp through the puddles while still looking hot. If the weather is being agreeable, she can lose the layers and let the dress take center stage with nude pumps, a skinny belt, and a sleek gold clutch.
Transitional Item #3: 81 Poppies, Jacki Top in Multi, $184
Why save Christine’s colorful patterned top for a gorgeous sunny day when it can do so much to brighten a rainy one? She styled it with fun pink wellies, skinny jeans, and a jacket. But if the sun happens to peek out, all you need is a pair of crisp white bermuda shorts and fun flip flops to finish off the look.
