The end is near...and when we say that, we mean the end of winter! The long transition between winter and spring brings new colors, prints, trends, and silhouettes, with new fashion collections emerging as the weather changes in unison. Many take spring as an opportune moment to refresh, reset, and brighten our wardrobes with pops of color, pastels, and florals. As huge advocates of a seasonal closet facelift, it feels like the perfect time to slowly ready ourselves for spring. Since Punxsutawney Phil just announced a few more weeks winter, we have a nice window to battle the chilly outdoors and stay cozy in our winter wear. Transition your cold weather wardrobe by Injecting warmer-toned and functional layers to brighten things up while still feeling bundled up. We are easing into the next season with a fun guide geared to some end of warm winter tones on this week's Editorial.
With the effects of the pandemic in full force, we have all been having those days where we just can't even. We feel unmotivated to get glam and dressed up, hence a considerable uptick in lounge pieces doubling as “fashion” pieces as well. Rails has forever been our go-to brand for those playful prints and ultra-feminine wovens, but they have recently taken the athleisure and lounge world by storm. They are making the cut for our warm tones line up with the new Saga Popover in Cream Leopard Mix. Over the past few years, sherpa has been the trendiest texture of winter and fall, and this print mix is a fun update to the otherwise one-toned sherpa pieces we've seen in the past. This pullover style features a structured standing collar and loose-fitting sleeves in a creamy coloration. Blocked with a fun faux leopard print bottom, this popover gets a sporty update with a black quilted nylon pocket and snap button placket. Stay cozy while showing your wild side in this vintage-inspired athleisure teddy jacket. Go for a refined, relaxed look, and pair your soft sherpa with a semi-fitted jogger such as Alternative Apparel's Modal Interlock Jogger in Black. Smooth as butter on and off the body, you'd never know that Alternative Apparel's modal fabrication is actually made of wood. Their latest and most updated all-black jogger, Alternative Apparel uses TENCEL™ Modal and cotton fibers for long-lasting strength and softness. Lightweight yet durable, this sweatpant makes for the perfect year-round layer that you'll never want to take off. Finish things off with a sporty sneaker. Golden Goose is our go-to, but with the pop of leopard print from our sherpa centerpiece, go for a cleaner and more neutral take on the brand's usually eccentric styles. We went for a classic white and navy combination with the Superstar in White Cord Gum.
