Layering is The Name of the Game
Just like Spring, Fall is infamous for having what feels like 3 seasons in one day. Mornings are crisp cool like Fall, afternoons are warm like Spring and evenings are cold like Winter. That’s why dressing is layers is perfect for this time of year. We’re not talking bulky winter layering, this is all about close that work together smoothly for a great autumn look.
Start with a hi-lo layered top. Looks great on its own, or perfect for layering with a cardigan. We have several cardigan styles and colors to choose from. We just recently got in these great sleeveless open front cardigans, perfect for those Spring like afternoons. For when it’s chiller in the morning and evening, these long sleeve drapey cardigans contributes warmth without bulk.
These leggings are great for layering. That’s because they come in bold colors and patters, ensuring that most everything else you wear will be neutral colors like grey, black, or white, making it earlier to coordinate several layers. We have patterns, colors to match any style.
Never underestimate the power of scarves when it comes to proper layering. Scarves are easy to put on and take off as desired, and come in so many sizes, patterns, colors and materials. For example, we have chiffon and cotton scarves as well as wool and patterned and solid colors. Check them all out!. They can also be worn in a multitude of ways.

April can be a temperamental month but that doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous. Be sure you’re ready for anything and still look chic.
April weather can be a bit unpredictable. Even though the temperatures are finally warming up, we can often be bogged with sporadic rain showers and the temps can still vary from the 40’s to the 60’s and even 70’s. The trick to April fashion is being prepared for any weather and still looking great.
The weather this time of year can call on practically any outfit you have ready in your closet. One day can have you feeling like it’s winter again and another can force you to bust out your summer clothes. The best thing to do to counter this is to layer. Layering will ensure that you are prepared for any weather as well as any random or unexpected weather changes. The best items to use are light clothing, like a loose cardigan, that when combined can create warm, cozy combinations that aren’t too warm, and can be easily removed if you need to cool off and breathe a little. The fun thing about layering is that you are basically wearing several outfits in one, which can definitely come in handy if something comes up or if the weather spoils an item or two with a random rain shower.
While it can rain any time of the year, the spring and late fall are when it’s at its worst so it’s best to keep ready. Wear shoes that are naturally water resistant or be sure to carry a spare in your bag if you’re unsure of the weather. Shoes with fabric made of suede or fragile canvas materials can easily become ruined when wet so it may be best to keep the suede for autumn and winter and hold onto some canvas shoes until summer, unless they are the kind that can be easily washed. Leather, patent leather or even pleather are all great materials to use in rainy weather and can be made extra resistant with a water sealant spray. If you still feel like rocking your favorite shoes that happen to be more sensitive to moisture, then be sure to be one of those people who carries an extra pair or shoe covers on hand.
Regardless of playing it safe, feel free to break out those bright pastel colors to welcome the spring. Regardless of what the forecast is, these colors will brighten your mood and pump you up for the warmer temps to come. Let your outfit match the excitement of the season by incorporating lighter shades and tones into your look.

Cardigans are indispensable items to any girl’s wardrobe. Keep a few on hand at all times to match any occasion, no matter what the weather is.
Even though spring is here, it does not mean that the cold is gone completely. Layering is just as vital and as fashionable now as it is in the winter time. When the weather is unpredictable and constantly indecisive, shifting from rain to shine or giving us cool mornings and chilly nights with moments of warmth in between, layering definitely comes in handy. And while you may associate sweaters with the bitter chill of winter, they are just as useful (and just as cute) in the spring. A loose cardigan is an indispensable spring item and it is something everyone should make sure to have in their wardrobe.
Cardigans can be worn as an accessory or as a main feature of an outfit. They can be worn with dresses, with a tee and jeans, skirts, and even as a makeshift jacket over a pair of shorts and more summery outfits. Their power really comes from their ability to layer. When the weather is chillier, it is best to wear them with skinny jeans and boots. But they can also be worn when the weather is warmer as well. A cardigan over a spring dress can still be open and breezy in the sun but will protect you from the chill of the wind or in the shade. These handy accessories can also work just as great as a light jacket on cooler summer nights.
Cardigans are one of those wardrobe staples that come in handy when you have a few of them. It’s always handy to have a neutral color to match a majority of your outfits, but it’s just as useful to have some in varying colors. A statement color or print can do a lot to add oomph to a basic outfit if you’re dressing on the run or want to add some flare to an old outfit. Not only that, but they can be used to match any look, whether you’re going for romantic, daring, rocker chic, bohemian and can even extend to the general casual and professional looks. Their versatility is limitless. Wear them simply draped over your outfit, cinch it with a waist belt, layer it with a scarf, or button it up for a more preppy or professional look. These cozy items are perfect for mixing and matching and can do a lot to extend your wardrobe. Be sure you have a few that match your personal style as well as accentuate it.
