Lessons in Layering: 5 Outfit Ideas for Temperamental Spring Weather


How will the East Coast be celebrating the first official week of spring? With a sunny 20 degree morning and an impending Nor’easter! That just means a couple more weeks of strategic layering that meshes fresh, springtime looks with functional coverage. And luckily, loads of street style inspiration abound!



Simge Ozgoren lightens up her wintry black sweater and leather shorts from Zara with a floral H&M jacket, bare legs (hey, it’s fashion, right?), and bronze tasseled loafers from Topshop.


Hande Yuece brightens up her holdover black wool Max Mara coat with a triple-punch of fuchsia: a three-quarter length sleeve top from J. Crew, a luxe Herm├Ęs Birkin, and pumps from Ulseven.


Billur Saatci works a spring-ready streetwear look with a leather moto-jacket from Vsp Paris layered over a slouchy top and flounced midi-skirt from Mybestfriends. She’s also totally comfy-chic in a pair of stark white kicks.


Simge breaks out her summery white lace mini-dress in cooler temps by wearing it under a floor-length graphic coat from H&M. She brought the pieces together with a brown skinny belt and chunky black ankle booties from Twist.


Get some extra wear out of your fall cape (especially if it’s a leather one) by mixing it with vibrant, spring-ready colors. Hande had fun with bright hues: neon yellow peeking out with a long sleeve top and pumps by Christian Louboutin, aqua blue sunglasses, and a multi-colored clutch by Moschino.
