Layer Up 

Smart layering is the key to dressing for the tricky in-between seasons, since you can pull on and peel off throughout the day depending on the weather. For example, consider combining a t-shirt, a thin roll-neck sweater, and a light jacket or “shacket” (an on-trend cross between a shirt and a jacket).

Faithful Fabrics 

Keep your transitional outfit from looking confused by editing out fabrics that clearly belong in one season. Save your light linens for summer and thick wools for winter and go for denim, corduroy, tweed, and flannel — all fitting in-between choices.

Super Stompers

In the Trenches 

When it comes to choosing a jacket, go for something lighter than a winter coat but warm enough to see you through cooler nights in style. While denim, bombers, or “shackets” work well, it’s the classic trench coat that’s arguably the trustiest (and chicest) between-season jacket of all.

In Close Reach

Cooler months also call for an injection of moisture-boosting products to keep dry skin and cracked lips at bay. Opt for clothing with easy to reach pockets — like the trusty trench coat – and keep your hydrating beauty saviors like lip balm and hand cream within easy reach while on the go.
