Transitional layering pieces for spring

Q. I’m super excited that spring is finally here, but I’m not sure how to deal with those days that just aren’t warm enough to go without a jacket or sweater. What can I wear that’s comfortable and practical?

A. I feel your pain. One day it’s bright and sunny, the next it’s so dreary you can’t believe it’s the same season. No doubt, the winter-to-spring transition can be tricky. The key is to select lightweight yet substantial enough pieces that are easy to slip on and off without a second thought — no-fuss cardigans, easy blazers and comfortable jackets that are appropriate to wear during those early days of the season. Layered over a pretty top and worn with anything from a pair of classic jeans to tailored pants to leggings to pencil skirts, these effortless pieces make life so much easier when the weather can’t quite make up its mind.
