Some people take the shock route towards transitioning their spring wardrobe. Eager for the weather change, they throw on their sandals, light skirts, and sleeveless tops….all at once. It’s like jumping straight into cold water. Instead, I take the slow approach. One step at a time. I start with pants in lighter, spring shades. Gradually I add closed toe sandals, then skirts. This buys me some time in the color department when it comes to the ghostly looking limbs made visible by spring skirts. The key pieces consist of a light trouser, crisp button, dark sweater, lighter shoes, and simple accessories. After a week or so of lighter basics paired with simple accessories, I add skirts and simple flats.
