Spring is definitely around the corner, and I cannot wait! I am a little tired of dressing in sweaters and heavy coats, and ready to shed the “drama” of winter. However, I should remind some folks that spring is not summer, and while the temps warm up, we still must be aware that there is still some chill in the air. So, what does one wear while we transition from spring to winter when the weather can be so unpredictable? Here is one simple style trend that you can make your winter to spring transition easy, and of course, keep you looking your best.
Have you tried styling midi skirts for your spring transition outfits? Midi skirts are the perfect transitional piece that you can layer as needed and style appropriately for whatever occasion. What I admire about the calf-length skirt is the versatility it offers. You may choose to wear a midi skirt with knee-high boots and a sweater in the winter time, or a crop-top in the spring. It is definitely one of those pieces that can transition with you from season to season, and are flattering on everyone.
I found this gorgeous faux leather, pleated orange midi skirt from Zara for $12.99, during their end of season clearance sales last year. You should know that I love Zara’s fashion, but not their “non-sale” prices. But, trust me when I say that their sales and clearances are amazing and worth the wait.
I immediately fell in love with this midi skirt when I saw it in Zara. Of course, with a $12.99 price tag, this was an easy buy. Here, I paired this orange midi skirt with a dark wash chambray shirt. You have seen this chambray shirt styled on the blog before here and here and you can expect to see it in the future again, as chambray shirts are a wardrobe staple for me. These shirts are are super versatile and a great pick for that casual look.
As I wanted a casual feminine look, I tucked the shirt into the pleated midi skirt, and rolled up the sleeves. A chambray shirt is a perfect, lightweight pick for the warmer seasons, and therefore, a must have for transitioning the seasons.
I completed this look with these Nine West animal print pumps that I got from TJ Maxx for $29 on clearance. I think the heels provide that extra “slay” in this outfit.
