When new season is right around the corner, a wardrobe update becomes a necessity. You need first to fill in the gaps of your basics, and then enrich your transitional weather looks with some fashion statements. Think of eye-catching motifs and bold colors, but also of sharp tailoring and great texture. Add some comfort requirements to your list, because comfy clothes give you more confidence. Pay attention to the fabric and the functional details. Busy ladies need lots of pockets, form-adjusting materials, and zippers. Let’s go through the specifics!
Florals, checks, and other cool patterns can be parts of your casual and formal wardrobe. In the morning, spice up your skinny jeans or A-line skirts with this Marissa Webb Leona Off-the-Shoulder Printed Top. Every time of the day you can really mix your flared pants with this Escada Sport Printed Silk-Blend Blouse. For party time, just slip into this fabulous Alice + Olivia Imani Cap-Sleeve Lace Fit & Flare Dress.
The more you have, the most efficient you get on special occasions. A good ‘easy’ cocktail dress must fit all settings, flatter your body contours, and mix & match with your accessories and outerwear. Fit & flare, sheath monochrome or subtly patterned dresses belong to this category. As your next flirty LBD, get this chic Theory Leainna Fixture Ponte One-Shoulder Dress.

Often tops are the most important pieces in our closet. A top at a seated event is first impressions. It frames our face and enhances our head-to-toe silhouette. Most of them work with jeans anyway. In the morning try the elegant and neutral Sandro Gabrielle Ribbed Fine-Knit Buttoned Cardigan. In the evening, indulge into the magic of this seductive Veronica Beard Velvet Gage Top. In places where temperature is still very low, trust the Zadig & Voltaire Asa Cashmere Crewneck Sweater.
At this point you can wear summer dresses, but whenever there is a breeze or wintery conditions, you need to layer a modern piece of outerwear. For your party dresses think of this Helmut Lang Faux-Fur Surplice Vest. For your jeans or workwear basics, try this cozy Theory Faux Fur Clairene Jacket. For all of the above, including sweaters, T-shirts, and camisoles, this IRO Han Leather Biker Jacket is a very convenient edgy option.
