Dress: Target, This dress with a cap sleeve is a little more classic and would be great for the office. But I love the detail on the bottom of this dress and you can't beat an $18 price tag! // Bomber jacket: H&M, Mine's only available in a size 2, but the olive color is available in all sizes. This jacket and this bomber are very similar and both come in a couple of colors with all sizes in stock! // Heels: DSW, These come in 5 colors, leather and suede and are only $40, so you can totally get these in a few colors. // Clutch: Nordstrom, This is the most perfect dupe for the designer version and you can't tell the difference. // Star earrings: SugarFix, These only $13 and also come in silver. // Sunglasses: Ray Ban, These are my favorite sunglasses and I wear them daily, so I think they're totally worth the investment. // Lipcolor: Estee Lauder in 'Tumultuous Pink'
I love fall and long for the days of boots, sweaters and coats, so when spring and summer roll around, I get a bit nostalgic for those chilly fall days. And like some of the other fashion myths I believed when I was younger, I always thought that clothes could only be worn in their designated season. Well obviously that's not the case...you would think as a fashion blogger I would know better, but apparently not. So I've started mixing in 3 of my favorite fall wardrobe staples with my spring and summer pieces to add more variety and challenge myself to create more interesting looks this season.
This was a hot jacket in the fall and it's still a fun one for spring. I've seen tons of pink, floral patterned or light colored ones, but like most black things classic black will always be in. And despite what you might thing you can wear black year round. The key is to pair it with lighter colors or flowy fabric. This will keep the outfit feeling summery and edgy without feeling dark and heavy. It makes this pink dress feel a little less sweet and a lot more sophisticated.
Black Ankle Strap Heels
I know that people tend to shy away from black in the spring and summer, but I think shoes are pretty seasonless. Yes, there are certain shoe seasons like boots for the fall and sandals for the summer, but when it comes to dressy occasions a pair of black ankle strap heels is always in style. They go well with a flamingo dress in the summer and just as well with a pair of black tights and a sweater dress or a suede skirt and a chunky sweater in the winter.
I know that not everyone would agree with this statement, but I believe that leopard is a neutral that you can wear year round. There's nothing really "seasonal" about it, especially when it's a clutch. Before I found this clutch (which happens to be the best dupe every of this bag), I thought that I would use it pretty frequently, but I definitely use it more often than I thought it would. You can wear it with jeans, Converse and a white tshirt for a super casual weekend look or wear it with a pink dress like I did for fun evening look. It really is a chameleon purse, which makes it great to travel with too!
Do you have any wardrobe staples that you wear year round that are traditionally worn in a specific season? I'd love to hear what is it and how you style it for the seasons in the comments below. And if there's a piece you have but don't know how to style it for another season, let me know below or send me an email or drop me a comment on Facebook.
