Spring is practically here and I am beginning to dig into my transitional wardrobe pieces. The biggest thing I’ve noticed so far, is that I’m lacking in layering pieces, so I’ve decided to take to the stores and online boutiques to find exactly what I need for the changing seasons. Moreover, the pieces I’ve found are great for both spring and summer, maybe even fall!
Let’s begin with the basics! When it comes to layering pieces, I feel like a lot of people assume a jean jacket is the only option, but there are a ton of trendy and capsule finds that are perfect for your closet. You’d be surprised at which trends stick around for awhile. Maybe try even going for pieces you haven’t owned yet.
Firstly, sweaters are a classic, casual way to layer up and keep warm while the seasons begin to change. For instance, I have been obsessed with Maridruna sweaters, each piece is hand-knitted and can take around 20 days to make! Can you imagine how much hard work goes into that? It’s truly amazing to see such talent! Sweaters are such a great option for layers that can easily be taken from day to night. I love supporting such hard work and the sweaters are gorgeous. Cardigans are very on trend at the moment, especially cropped.
Furthermore, everyone needs a jean jacket in their closet! It is a staple item and these can be worn with literally anything. Jean on jean even is in style now! However, it’s totally acceptable to pair different jean washes together or the same to complete a look. I personally love wearing them with dresses or matching sets.
In closing, moto jackets are so in style and honestly, I don’t think they’ll ever go anywhere. They are a great example of a capsule staple item. I recommend them to be an option to be dressed both up or down- any outfit works with them and they keep you warm. They also look so good draped over your shoulders, in a chic, casual way.
Let me know what your favorite light layers are. I know there are so many cool trends these days and I love to keep up to date! What are you reaching for this season?
