paNASH Style Client Examples: Spring Layers

So yesterday morning I walk out of my house with wishful thinking that it would feel like spring, but instead I walk out to 46 degree temps. I immediately knew it was going to be one of those know the kind, where it's cold in the morning and then in the afternoon, no matter what your age or gender, you're having hot flashes. Yes, it's that in-between time of the year you usually see me blogging about in the late fall and early spring. It's LAYER time!

Below are a few examples of some layering action I've put together for some paNASH Style clients with items right out of their own closet.

When layering for spring, you can incorporate spring pastels such as the light blues found in the skirt on the right or flowery spring prints like in the short-sleeve top on the left. These spring touches can work with some of your warmer layering pieces that are of neutral and pseudo neutral colors (pseudo neutrals include denim, burgundy, and natural greens). The natural green camisole in the picture on the right works well with the colors in the skirt, and the chambray shirt's sleeves can be worn long in the chilly morning and rolled up as the temperatures rise.

Finally, don't forget what I refer to as your "completer" pieces: a belt and/or jacket. These items are called completer pieces because they pull the look together, giving it definition. Belts create a cinched-in, hour-glass look, and so does a jacket that nips in at the waist. And of course, lightweight jackets are the best way to keep you warm in the cool of the morning or in cold air conditioned buildings without being too bulky. They work with jeans, skirts, and dresses.

Have your own layering ideas? We'd love for you to share them! And if you send us pictures we might just feature you here on our blog!
