How to Make Your Winter Clothes Work in Warm Weather

What to do when it's warming up outside but you're not ready to commit to a full-on spring wardrobe just yet.

When you live in Houston, you never know what the temperature's going to be anytime of year. Take, for instance, this annual period at the end of the winter months when Houston seemingly starts to heat up, but a chill in the air is never too far away. What's a fashionable Houston gal to wear when it’s getting warmer but she’s not ready to break out her spring wardrobe? Here are a few ideas for making your cold weather pieces work during this transitional time.

When it was colder, I wore this tweed skirt with sweaters and long-sleeved tops. Now that some days creep up into the 70s, I'm pairing my skirt with a matching tweed bralette.

Samantha still wants to wear her beautiful grey fur vest, so she’s paired it with a light-weight maxi skirt and sequined bra top. Layered necklaces and a headband add to the the chic boho look.

I wore these leather leggings all the time this winter with cozy sweaters and high boots. Now that the weather is changing, I can pair them with a breezy crochet top and a little bralette instead.

During the holidays, Blaine wore her favorite sequined pants with sparkly party sweaters. Not ready to pack them up just yet, she styled them with a white peek-a-boo crop top and pumps to keep them in her wardrobe rotation a while longer.

Two of my go-to pieces this winter: a black faux fur vest and black jeans, which transition nicely when layered over a sheer lace top.
