On the first day that really feels like spring, we find ourselves reaching for breezy statement dresses, short-sleeved tees, and lighter jackets – all of which make for the perfect transitional spring outfit. These are likely looks we’ve been eager to wear for months, stowing them away to pull out at just the right moment. But after those special pieces have been worn, the days get longer, and we’re in the midst of a standard morning rush, it’s natural to crave an easier answer.
Since it can be confusing to decide what to wear for iffy, in-between weather, we’ve gathered some street style inspiration to help you reimagine pieces you already own – including open-toe sandals, floral dresses, and neutral, wear-with-everything bodysuits.
