It’s that awesome time of year when it’s 45° in the morning when we leave for the day and then 80° by noon. This usually leaves me regretting the sweater, leggings and boot I put on in the morning. Which made me think, what are some outfits I could wear that are easily transitional from cold to warm? Let me tell ya, it’s easier said than done! I really had to brainstorm about this but I actually thought of some options!
- My favorite & my go-to in most situations is a t-shirt dress with a jean jacket and sneakers. T-shirt dresses are my favorite piece of clothing because you’re wearing a dress that looks cute but it's a t-shirt! Honestly so comfortable but so adorable. A trendy oversized jean jacket over it always makes for a good outfit. I personally love oversized jean jackets because it's typically more comfortable. Next is the hard part: which shoes to go with? Obviously if its too cold in the morning, you don’t want sandals but if it’s going to be warm in the afternoon then boots might be too much. The perfect in between is sneaks. You could also add a cute scarf for the morning if its really chilly & throw it in your bag as the day warms up!
- A more casual & cute option is leggings, a tee & a flannel or shacket. You can literally never go wrong with this look. Who doesn’t want to wear leggings but still look cute? Either a plain white tee, band tee, or sports team tee with a fun flannel. If your favorite flannel is dirty you can always do a denim button down, too! This option is perfect because when it starts to warm up you can tie your button down around your waist or bag & still look adorable. Accessorizing this look is so simple because you can do cute mules or sandals for a simple & girly look or you can do sneaks and a baseball cap to be sporty. So easy & appropriate for this weather!
- Another dressier option is jeans, a plain tank & a duster. Majority of true duster are light weight material which is so breathable & ideal for this type of weather. It’ll keep you covered when its chilly out but will still be light enough when it warms up. The best part about dusters is that so many stores have them in different materials so you can utilize the proper one as the seasons really start to change. It’s the same idea with the shoes for this outfit: mules, sneakers or boots depending on the heat wave in the afternoon! This can also be made even dressier with white or black denim & layered necklaces and fun earrings. And of course, throwing on some heels always adds to an outfit!
These outfits took some serious thinking but these have been my go-to looks in the past few weeks. If you have any other outfit suggestions please let me know! I would love to share them. Hopefully this will help you out from overheating in the afternoon & being too chilly in your morning commute!
