How To Series – Layering for Cool Mornings & Warm Afternoons

It seems like we’re all in that weird seasonal transition period, and it’s definitely a struggle to stay temperature-appropriate. When you leave the house you never know if you should dress for the arctic tundra or a bright and sunny spring day. The key is layering!

The flannel shirt is an awesome and versatile piece for layering. Button it up if its cooler outside, then unbutton once it gets warmer in the afternoon. If it’s really hot by the end of the day, you can just take it off altogether, revealing a cute tee underneath.

Warmer weather calls for tucking away your go-to jeans and pulling out your go-to spring transition dress. Go for a long sleeve option paired with tall boot and a scarf or cardigan, and by the end of the day you can tuck the scarf away in your bag and tie the cardigan around your waist. Tights or tall boots can also keep your legs warms on cooler mornings!

Layer a white tank or tee with a chambray shirt, a sweater and/or cardigan can be layered over that for a preppy yet cozy look. Once it gets hotter, lose the sweater and let the chambray shirt hang open over the blouse.
