Gone are the days that require heavy coats, scarves, and boots. While it’s not quite time to rock a tank top and sandals just yet, it is time to transition your wardrobe and put those bulky layers away in exchange for lighter layers. Warmer days and chilly evenings are ahead, so make sure you’re prepared to make the most out of your spring with the layers to shed when the sun’s high in the sky and put back on as the evenings grow cold.

Cargo To Go

Layer Away

No matter what the trend report says, black and white is always a perfect color combination. This houndstooth blazer will shine over bold solids like blue or yellow, and can even add pizzazz to a more neutral ensemble.

Sheer blazer

A blazer with sheer paneling helps you stay cool while maintaining a professional look. As the temperatures climb, swap out your heavy blazer for a lightweight option that’s office-ready and summer-friendly.

The Right Light Jacket

Denim jackets shine brightest in the spring and fall when we’re in between heavy coat and tank top weather. They work with just about any casual outfit, be it jeans or a dress. Add a warm layer like a chunky knit sweater underneath for maximum warmth or a thin tank to keep your cool.


Trench coats are a classic and the perfect layer for fall and spring. Got a gorgeous spring outfit that isn’t yet seasonally appropriate to wear? Just add a trench. Rocking your winter staples but need a lighter coat? The trench is the perfect topper!
