We all get a little anxious as winter comes to a close and spring is not yet here to bring out the summer clothes. Here in Austin, we are quickly approaching spring, but in the colder states, I know you have a bit of time left. I used to switch my closet over in March when I lived in NY, but in late February I would start wanting to pull out a few of my favorite spring pieces, or want to wear new purchases. So what is ok to wear early and how do you pull it off? You can check out Episode #45 of Friday Live with Sierra or read more below for tips, tricks and great ideas for dressing during that in between time.

Posted by Sierra on 1/29/2018 to How To Wear It
This How To Wear It is an example of how playing with stripes and color blocking can create a simple yet bold and graphic look. I stuck with black, red and white in both clothes and accessories (with a pop of yellow on the top) and used stripes to bring in an extra element. Swap out the jeans for black pants to make it business casual, trade the heels for flats to make it more comfortable and of course, if you still have freezing temps, add an outer coat, scarf and gloves. Would you wear this outfit?
