Cool Spring Style @ the Second City Store

Fountain of 30

May 29, 2008 • Shopping

We’ve been inspired lately by The Sartorialist‘s coverage of Spring cool-weather looks. Maybe it’s because we really haven’t quite seen a consistent Spring in Chicago yet, or maybe it’s because these looks are just quirky and cool…either way, we’re smitten. Sweaters, scarves, and layering for Spring… who would have guessed we wouldn’t be sick of this after Winter?

We also think these looks might be a little easier to achieve that it appears… with some help from our designer friends at the Second City Store! Our favorite pieces for the layered Spring look include:
