If you live anywhere east of California, then you don't need a fashion editor telling you how abysmal this winter has been. The endless onslaught of sleet, hail, and other forms of frozen precipitation hasn't let up, and everyone—particuarly our friends on the east coast—has basically reached her breaking point.
To help take you out of the storm (at least mentally), we think a good tactic is to overhaul your closet and stock it with pieces you can wear during any season. It might seem like a lofty goal, but we're here to simplify the process.
Keep scrolling to shop 17 pieces that will take you from winter to spring to summer and all the way back again!
Acne Studios Single Bi Crepe Blazer ($776)
Perfect for work or a chic going-out look, and great for layering under big coats if it's cold out.
AG Robyn Jacket ($215)
Often considered a staple only for brisk spring days, a denim jacket is actually a solid layer for any time of year.
H&M Leather Shirt Dress ($299)
Yes, you can wear leather when it's warm out! The shorter length on this piece makes it appropriate for all temperatures. Just opt for tights if it's chilly.
AG Nikki Relaxed Skinny Jeans ($215)
A pair of skinnies that aren't too skinny? Great for warm months when rolled at the cuff, and perfect for wearing over leggings when it's legitimately freezing.
ASOS ASOS Peg Trouser with Front Pleats ($55)
If you need a dressy look for a dinner on a cold night, look no further than your go-to workplace trousers.
Band of Outsiders Pleated Wrap T Shirt Dress ($495)
This piece is awesome because it stands alone as a spring dress, obviously, but you can also imagine it over leggings and under layers and layers of winter wear.
Chloé Drew Medium Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag ($1,735)
When it's basically too cold to function, you don't want your hands fumbling around with a clutch. This chic shoulder bag = year-round accessory domination.
Forever 21 Tasseled Woven Scarf ($11)
Yes, scarves can be worn all 365 days of the year. In a light enough fabric, it works for spring, and also as one of many scarves you bundle up in during winter.
J Brand Lais Leather Jacket ($1,295)
If you don't already have a good leather moto jacket in your wardrobe, it's time to change that. It layers well when it's freezing, and stands alone well into the warmer months with nippy nights.
J. Crew Thin Stripe Cropped Button Down ($78)
There are endless ways to wear this piece; our minds dazzle at all the options.
Mango Shawl Blazer ($40)
A fancier version of our friend the blazer, the tuxedo jacket reigns supreme as dressy date-night wear that crosses seasonal boundaries.
Oscar de la Renta Gold-Plated Cuff ($375)
The only category of clothing that remains essentially unaffected by the weather: jewelry. Have a ball!
Rachel Comey Mars Mule ($391)
With a closed toe and an open back, the mule is perhaps the ultimate example of seasonally variant footwear.
Reformation Distressed Denim Shirt ($68)
A chambray shirt is obviously a staple in the warmer months, but it's nice to layer under sweaters when it's cold.
Theory Ashtry Cashmere Long Cardigan ($415)
No matter where you live, it's always a good idea to keep a cardigan in your car (or otherwise nearby) at all times. If the temperatures drop suddenly (even if it's just the AC blasting), it's helpful to have handy.
Topshop Bonded Neppy Wrap Skirt ($60)
Great on its own when it's warm, a pencil skirt takes on a more modern vibe with tights and a long coat when it's chilly.
