The snow is melting, and the sun is setting later than 4:30 p.m. It must be spring — which is wonderful for getting reacquainted with sunshine, the color green and fresh local produce, but a rather awkward time for personal style. You’re ready to shed your dark, woolly layers from the winter months, but it’s not quite warm enough for your summer shorts and sandals. What’s a fashion-conscious gal to do? Here’s how to put some spring in your winter-wardrobe step by mixing and matching pieces you already own.
Spring into summer
Summer dresses aren’t just for summer. Bring your summer frocks into spring this year by layering on your favorite winter cardigan or open-front sweater. Add a belt at the smallest part of your waist for an instant hourglass shape no matter what your figure. If Katie Holmes is doing it, you know it’s chic.
