If you live in the Northeast (Dia & Co HQ is located in New York City), you might be experiencing spring. Or really, you might just be experiencing the end of the longest winter in history. The combination of Winter of 2020-2021 and changeable weather have us emerging from a long style slumber and saying “what the heck should I wear?” When it’s 65 degrees one day and 42 the next, this is when transitional dressing comes in handy.
Not sure how to master it? It’s simple. Here are some key players to put the perfect transitional outfit together.
The Lightweight Layer
We’re obsessed with this easy to wear plus-size quilted jacket. Featuring diamond-quilted construction and plenty of pockets, this is the perfect completer piece when you’re venturing out (or planning a weekend trip away). Plus, it’s great dressed up or down. Try it with denim, skirts and your favorite work pants. It looks great either way.
Can’t quite break up with your quarantine sweatpants but need to look pulled-together all of a sudden? It’s true, people are getting back out there and if you want to stay as comfy as your cozies but still look polished, a jersey dress is the answer. Our Carnation plus-size jersey dress is a best-seller for a reason: the crossover neckline, empire waist and sweeping skirt makes for a dress that’s equal parts comfortable and chic.
Florals for spring? Call it groundbreaking. This season’s plus size floral dressesmake an optimistic statement even if the temperatures are still chilly. We love pairing a plus-size long cardigan over a floral dress when it’s still a bit nippy. A floral dress alone will become your hero piece in warmer months.
Transitional dressing 101: swap out your skinny jeans for breezy utility pants. You’d be surprised how versatile plus-size cargo pants and utility pants really are when you add them to your rotation. Perfect for adding a utilitarian look to your favorite sneakers and Tees, they’re made out of fabric that’s lighter than denim.
