Despite the six more weeks of winter that Phil has promised, cold weather pieces are quickly making their way on to the sales racks in the back of shops as airy, springtime pieces invade their space. I have always struggled with that magical time of year when the fashion seasons change (not to be confused with the actual seasons.) I tend to get super excited about new trends and the possibility of change and buy pieces for the upcoming (real) season far before it makes sense. (It is hard to wear a sundress when it is 25 degrees outside and just as hard to pull off a sweater in 80 degrees for that matter.)
If you are like me (i.e. impatient) and want to wear everything new you procure immediately, then it is important to know how to winterize. Thankfully opaque tights and bulky knits continue to be practical as well as stylish when paired with sheer, flowy pieces. Go ahead and break out that new breezy maxi or delicate blouse and add fun thick tights, a baggy sweater, and boots. I have already totally rocked my gorge new cream, pleated skirt that I snagged for spring while shopping at Panello last weekend with my friend, Ashley, or as I like to call her, The Commander.
I really love this Tunic, also from Panello. The color is one of my favs and the “tails” in the front/uneven hem line make it more interesting than your average tunic. I initially picked up the skirt and tunic as separate pieces loving them both on their own, but when I tried them on together, it was instant outfit swoon.
