Wonder what pieces would nicely transition your wardrobe from winter to spring? Banana Republic suggests that you create an outfit you love. Go back to basic such as the classic black and white, then add a pinch or a punch of bright colors through accessory, textured jacket, or fitting trousers.
Black and White
One of the winter trends that will continue to spring 2014 is black and white monochrome. I´m loving the polka dots and the white daisy prints on black, but you can still push the envelope by going for bold graphics. Think of how fashion-forward a mix-stripe fit and flare dress would look with pointed black pumps, or a two-tone textured pullover with a bright bottom.
Bright Clutch or Bag
A bright clutch or a colored handbag will quickly elevate a mono look. We all know this, of course. But how often do you actually grab a colored clutch? Try a fuchsia bow-detailed clutch which is very girly, or a multi-faceted colored bag which will bring you from grocery shopping to your every day affairs.
The easiest way to work texture to your look is through a tweed item, whether it´s a jacket, a top, or a tweed pencil skirt. If you want to know how to look professional in a tweed jacket, or how to add a punch of youth to it, read the two new ways to style a tweed jacket.
Go for a Parisian chic topper with classic silhouette, it´s more versatile than you ever realize. Amp up a simple black trouser with textured tweed top, or look fashionable at work with a textured skirt.
Skinny Ankle Pants
Going skinny is sexier if you opt for trousers that hit just around or above your ankle. Your choices starts from neutrals such as white, black and cobalt, to colored and patterned.
