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.
