Two Spring Transitional OutfitsNow that the weather has finally started to cooperate and the sun has come out of hiding, it's that time of year when it's hard to dress for the days that can go from hot and humid to suddenly very cool and chilly very quickly. During the transitional seasons like Spring, layering is the most easily and stylish way to look great, but still be able to stay warm or take off a layer if the warm sun makes an appearance.
Adding a cardigan or sweater is the most common layering technique, but a fabulous alternative to just throwing on a sweater is to turn that sweater into the top!
Kimonos have been popping up everywhere for that last year and they also look great as a layering top piece - just add a belt and viola! This Vero Moda kimono is so versatile, it looks fabulous with a long tank dress or here when I paired it with my large brimmed hat and Lady Dutch moto jeans. And changing a kimono or cardigan into a top works great on long pieces too! I posted about changing my favourite long Forever 21 kimono last year that looks great.
These looks are perfect for a sunny (or cool) day out, enjoying all the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography exhibits throughout the city!
