It’s March, and by now technically Spring! But the fickle weather drags on. We’ve had a few fleeting moments of short sleeves, but every time it turns quickly back to wool coats. Shopping for this in-between season can be confusing, but there are a few great staples out there to get you through the next several weeks and keep working for you when the sun finally comes and stays out.
The trench is a must. Throw it over a sweater right now and keep it with you in a few months for your bare shoulders when it cools off at night. Trench by A.P.C. at apc.fr
The scarf-wave continues. This scarf/wrap is a beautiful layering piece today, and can soon be the only outerwear you’ll need! Looks great dressed down or up. Shadow Shawl by Virginia Johnson at barneys.com
Find a pretty dress that you can pair with tights and a cami this weekend, but that’s light and airy enough to wear with bare legs until Fall. Wrap dress by Rag & Bone at shopbop.com
And finally, the gladiator sandal. I’ve been dreaming about these; they’re tough enough to wear with jeans and sexy enough for shorts, a skirt or a dress. Gladiator sandals by Balenciaga at barneys.com
