By now we’ve all stored our wool jackets and down coats until the next fall/winter season. However summer’s not quite here yet, so when it’s not hot but too chilly to go out without an extra layer, what do you wear?
The key to in-between season dressing is wearing layerable pieces. A well constructed trench coat makes for a great item to pull a look together on those unseasonably chilly days. This classic outer-wear piece can be layered over a tailored and sophisticated business suit for the office, worn with a pair of crisp white jeans for an elegant and polished daytime ensemble, or even over a denim-on-denim weekend look.
You only have a few minutes to pick out a look to wear for your Friday movie night date, what will you wear? For an option that gives an easy casual well put together look, reach for a playsuit.
