Style Ideas. Spring It On! How To Layer When There Is Still a Chill in the Air. Second City Style Fashion Blog

March 16, 2007 • Fashion

Me too! I am so sick of cold weather and my winter clothes. Once March 1 hits, I’m ready to get lean and mean. Clothing wise that is. I may not be able to peel away the layers, but I can make them lighter and brighter. Heck, daylight saving was early this year, so I am officially declaring it spring!

So let’s try to figure out how to layer it on, strategically.

Starting with the first layer…


The basic long-sleeve t-shirt. I love these by American Apparel. Soft and in every color imaginable. This Sheer Jersey Long-Sleeve T is in slate ( yes, I own this color) for $26 at American Apparel


Next, toss on this stunner silk number by Orlando Espinoza. Just make sure to tuck the straps in. Orlando Espinoza Silk Dress with Straps & Bias-Cut Skirt
$425 at SecondCity


Well, you’ll need a jacket to help chase away the chill. Why not this adorable bomber jacket by Marc Jacobs for $895 at eLUXURY?


These are the perfect day into night pump for this outfit. Fornarina Greta $201.56 at Zappos


Gotta have the right bag! Here it is…a Felix Ray Jungle Mesh Clutch for $128 at Shopbop.


Just in case it rains, you should have a great classic trench in a not so classic color. Try this Burberry Islington Nylon Trench in slate for $595 at Net-a-Porter
