As we look forward to a fresh new season ahead, visions of flowers blooming, the sun shining, and birds chirping come to mind. However, lest we not forget, there are plenty of breezy, cloudy, crispy days too—hello yo-yo weather that is spring. Therefore, to accommodate fluctuating conditions, we’re wearing sweaters that ARE dresses, layering chunky knits with floral frocks, and styling slimmer silhouettes over-the-shoulder—and it feels so right.
With Florals Because Spring
As the weather shifts, so begins our desire to lighten up, with sweaters on the top and lightweight styles on the bottoms. Think a chunky mock neck pullover paired over easy-breezy neutral prints in every silhouette, from baby-doll mini dresses to floral midi skirts and maxi slip dresses that recall ’90s grunge.
A Sweater, But Make It A Dress
Nothing says chic like a matching tonal sweater dress worn with an oversized cardigan à la Gwyneth Paltrow’s character in Great Expectations. This combo is high on the list of faves to go from second to the third trimester (aka winter to spring) in style and warmth—and that, mamas, is what they call a “two-fer.”
Toss It Over-The-Shoulder
For a quick-cute spring getup wear a lightweight sweater over your shoulders. This styling go-to adds a touch of warmth and an instant cool-factor that’s ideal for cloudy-ish days which are neither hot nor cold—and we’re here for it.
With Denim, Always
When it’s still just a little too chill for a dress, reach for a thinner knit on top and jeans on the bottom for a spring-perfect off-duty look.
