The transition from winter to spring can be rough. From rain storms to mornings that start cold and afternoons that end warm to weather conditions that are generally unpredictable, figuring out what to wear to be comfortable and look cute can get rather complicated. What’s a Mieux girl to do? Be prepared, of course! Check out some of our helpful hints for staying stylish throughout the seasons.
Add some tights. We all know the transformational power of a great pair of tights. They can truly make or break an outfit! The perfect addition to an all-season wardrobe, tights (and/or socks!) are a great tool to add both style and warmth for under $20. Our favorite picks this season include print, colored opaques, and trompe l’ oeil–as modeled by our owner Kelsey above. Whether you layer a sheer black pair under shorts with boots or go wild with oxblood lace, hosiery is an absolute essential in any fashionista’s wardrobe. Naturally, Mieux & Mieux has a fabulous selection of legwear if you’re looking to update your collection!
Change your shoes. What girl doesn’t want more shoes?! Arguably the easiest seasonal adjustment comes in swapping your footwear. Try your favorite winter skinnies with a new pair of statement flats for spring, or rock a spring dress with some classic leather boots. I’ve even seen a romper–summer’s fashion staple–adapted for winter with the addition of ankle boots, tights, and an infinity scarf. Don’t be afraid to mix and match! Make sure to pick up some wedges and a pair of wellington boots to cover all of your bases – no matter the month or the weather. Combining shoes from all seasons to form new, cohesive looks guarantees the most bang for your buck!
Layer up! …Duh, right? The between-season phases are the perfect time to pile on the layers, so wear all of your favorite pieces! Take advantage of cool morning temperatures by wearing a light jacket, zip-up, or cardigan–belted for shape. As things heat up, ditch the sleeves in favor of a trendy denim vest. Don’t be afraid to go go bare this summer, but consider stowing a favorite scarf in your bag for cool or rainy nights. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wished I’d had a scarf in a freezing movie theater! Lesson learned: The right scarf can be worn in any season and is always a super chic addition to an ensemble.
