It doesn’t matter how closely you like to adhere to those old-fashioned rules of style — I think we can all agree that wearing white between Labor Day and Memorial Day is not only okay, but totally chic. From sweaters to footwear, here are five great pieces to help you rock the trend right while we wait for warmer weather.
Be forward-thinking in any sweater purchases you make for the remaining months of winter. You’ll want to nab pieces that are going to work in early spring, too. This Gap cocoon sweater is a lovely option and will work now with a few layers, and later with just a tank beneath. $49.95.
Layer on the chic with an infinity scarf that hits the right note. A gauzy, owl-detailed option from Etsy seller LitoPinkOwl is on my current Affordable Wish List. At only $18, it’s an item handmade by a fellow mama and designed to add some whimsy to all your favorite ensembles. I’m picturing this as a great transition piece for now and into the spring.
Play dress-up in a frock that’s just as functional as it is cute. Anthropologie’s Meli cable sweater dress features a forgiving shape, flattering pattern, and trend-right cowl neck. Perfect for pairing with tights and boots. $148.
Call me crazy, but I strongly believe that the one item your closet is desperately missing is a laser-cut faux leather pencil skirt. No, really. Effortlessly chic, this piece will be an absolute stunner come spring. But that’s no reason you can’t nab your now and wear it as a surprising antidote to the sea of black skirts all around you. Wear with black tights and moto boots or pumps depending on whether you’re headed out for a date night or a day at the office. $109, Ann Taylor.
You may say I’m a dreamer, but someday I’ll stash away enough cash for a splurge bootie like this style. Acne Studios’ Jensen Contrast Pebbled Leather Ankle Boots have me in Swoon City over here. $550, Saks.
