There are many things we adore about Dallas. Topping the list, unseasonably warm weather during mid-to-late winter months is definitely a perk. However, dressing for such balmy days can prove challenging – must we invest in a complete transitional wardrobe to deal with these fickle fluctuations?
Enter this week’s bargain-priced finds.
Addressing the dressing dilemmas that plague many fashionistas this time of year, our pre-Spring shopping list features transitional pieces for less than $100. These picks are perfect for achieving a stylish, layered look now, and they’ll remain relevant once warmer temps are here to stay.
For The Girly-Girl: The print of this blouson sleeve top by Hinge works in winter, thanks to grey and brown undertones. Its boudoir-worthy vibe is also on-trend for the season ahead. Pair it with wide-leg trousers and a tweed jacket now, and white jeans and wedges later.
Pricetag: $88, Nordstrom
For The Bohemian: Maxi skirts provide vital versatility when transitioning your wardrobe. This fringed version from Nom De Plume by YaYa will look fab with a cropped sweater and booties. Come spring, swap for gladiator flats and florals.
Pricetag: $69, Urban Outfitters
For The Professional: This time of year, we could all use a bright spot – especially in our closets. Trade your wear-it-everywhere black blazer for this poppy-colored topper from MNG by Mango. Take it to the office with a statement scarf and neutral pumps.
Pricetag: $65, JCPenney
For The Romantic: We’re obsessed with amazing blush-colored pieces like this chic dress by BCBGMAXAZRIA. Pair it with patterned tights and booties right now, and channel your inner Parisian in warmer weather via delicate ballet flats and an oversized clutch.
Pricetag: $89, Dillard’s
For The Prep Set: If you love a classically East Coast aesthetic, snap up this vintage striped top from GypsyCloth. We love it under a twill blazer on a chilly day, and we’d rock it with colored denim and deck shoes later in the year.
Pricetag: $24, GypsyCloth
For The Optimist: Get happy in colorful pants, no matter what the forecast throws at you. We’d love these paired with chunky knits and platform booties. Transition with sheer blouses and your favorite leopard footwear for spring.
Pricetag: $49.95, Gap
