Here's What to Wear When It's 70 Degrees

Sure, it's officially spring, but that doesn't mean the weather is always spot-on in terms of predictability. Rather than looking forward to the really hot days of cropped tops and miniskirts that the summer season traditionally calls to mind, we're still left wondering what to wear in 70-degree weather when we're frankly pretty tired of our weird transitional spring-to-summer wardrobes

Fortunately, fashion week street style offers some ideas when it comes to fresh outfit ideas. Rather than pulling out the same linen dresses and eyelet tops they've been wearing since forever, It girls been opting for richer textures, bolder colors, and more put-together ensembles, taking some of the tenets of spring fashion and tweaking them for more summer-like weather.

And for those of you who live in California or another region where temperatures tend to stay pretty consistent year-round, consider this an all-season guide. Below, see 10 outfit ideas to try now, and shop cropped denim and ruffled tops to wear now and layer later.
