spring layers - feature image

With warm weather around the corner, we can officially say goodbye to our heavy winter coats as we welcome the gorgeous spring weather. Transitioning your wardrobe can be tricky, particularly when you are traveling. During the day, it might be warm, but step into the chilly night without a jacket and you will surely regret it.

We love layering our spring clothing; not only for practicality, but because it is a fun opportunity to mix and match colors and textures. You don’t want to go overboard with too many spring layers, but if you find the right balance this is truly a fun sartorial season. Below, we’ve curated some luxurious layered looks based on the trends of the moment to spark your interest.

Look 1: White Suiting

Truthfully, white on white never gets old – especially when it comes to spring style. Bring a fresh perspective to your wardrobe by opting for layers of white or ivory; the more the merrier.

For the office or a dinner al fresco, this look easily transitions to suit all occasions. A faux leather white trench, like this one from Sara Battaglia, adds a bit of structure that brings a sophisticated quality to the ensemble. Add a touch of gold to this spring layer look with your accessories from this season’s Summer Box of Style for some eye-catching sparkle.

Look 2: Texture Play

Layering is the perfect way to explore unique texture combinations that strike a surprising balance for your spring style. Try mixing the masculinity of a denim button down with a soft floral silk scarf. Leather pants are always a woman’s spring clothing winner for transitional months. If you need another layer for warmth, slip a white t-shirt or turtleneck on first and leave the button down open as a jacket. Finish it all off with stunning eyebrows using a brow setting and shaping gel, like the one from Benefit Cosmetics in the Summer Box of Style.

Look 3: Bundled On Top

It’s finally the season to forego heavy trousers and opt instead for spring clothing like a mini skirt and knee-high boots, like this pair from Saint Laurent. This classic look is perfect from day to night in spring because it can be easily layered depending on the climate and is formal without being fussy.

Wondering how to layer these clothes and boots for spring? Match them with a plain white t-shirt or add black tights, a turtleneck, and a long black coat as a chic way to stay cozy. Grab a boho black handbag to complete the look, and you're all set from day through the night.

Look 4: Dress Over Tights

You are more than ready to pull out the floral dresses, but it is still not warm enough without a few layers. Wearing a pair of tights in an edgy pattern or solid hue underneath is an easy way to layer outfits when you need to beat the chill and bring an edge to your feminine ensemble. Adding a pair of white ankle boots adds a bright and surprising twist to this spring style. And no outfit is complete without glowing skin! Try a moisturizer with SPF for an ageless complexion that's the perfect complement to your spring and summer looks.
