It may still be January with it’s chilly, gray days and stores filled to the brim with picked over sale merchandise, but two warmer than normal, sunny days have me looking ahead to spring.
Navy is always a good way to transition to spring and you often see it pop up in many early-spring collections. It less harsh than black but doesn’t scream spring like bright or pastel colors and it works well into your current wardrobe. It’s no wonder that these two items from designer Markus Lupfer caught my attention, they have a springy look but can easily be worn now layered and with denim. Both items available at www.net-a-porter.com.
I love this cute, quirky Hello Sailor extra long t-shirt, it will look great worn with skinny jeans and booties layered under a scarf and light colored cardigan; come spring it will be just as versatile worn with baggy boyfriend jeans and flats or paired with worn chinos and Jack Purcell shoes.
There has been a fair amount of buzzing that stripes will be hot for spring and this double layered cardigan will be perfect to wear now and when spring finally pushes winter away. It provides you an easy way to wear layers and stripes while looking bright and fresh. Pair it now with a crisp white button down and dark denim and wear it later with skinny cropped jeans, a white tank and flats. It will even look cute worn over a gauzy summer dress. The stripes are far apart and separated a bit by the blue under layer so they won’t make you look wider.
