While the changing temperatures can mess with your mind—sunny one day and back to freezing temperatures the next—they’re my favorite time of year for fashion. Not only is it exciting to start donning some of your favorite Spring pieces after a long Winter, but the temperamental weather forces you to get creative with layers, which always make for the most interesting looks.
I bought this magenta jacquard midi dress last summer but didn’t end up having the chance to wear it. Employing my favorite layering trick, I wore a classic white collared shirt underneath and belted a tailored blazer on top for this Winter-meets-Spring ensemble.
