We have good news, and we have bad news. The good news is spring is only 20 days away. The bad news is spring is traditionally a tough season to dress for. Ideally, spring dressing involves breezy dresses, open-toed shoes, and nothing but a light jacket to keep you comfortable and stylish, but the reality is spring involves drastic temperature changes, rain, some optimistically warm days, characteristically cold days, and more rain.
To keep up with the inconsistent climate that comes with this time of year, we sourced our favorite off-duty retailer, Free People, for all our transitional-dressing needs. Rain boots, jackets, and layer-able sweaters and cardigans are a must, but we also urge you to start incorporating some warmer-weather pieces into your look while still keeping them seasonally appropriate. Think maxi skirts with sneakers instead of sandals, sweaters with peekaboo details, mock turtlenecks, and, of course, new on-trend denim. Scroll to shop the looks now.
