How to Bring Winter Staples Into Spring

Tricks to master the art of wear now, wear later

Winter Sale

Seasonal shopping has its inherent risks. Once winter ends, it’s time to put away those cold-weather staples, right? Actually, wrong. Instead of stashing those winter favorites, challenge yourself with new ways to wear them as temps rise. Just think:

That open-front cardigan you paired with long sleeves all winter? It will look stellar over a belted sundress.

Booties can totally make the seasonal transition, especially if they’re neutral. All it takes is pairing them with the right ensemble.

A bright and colorful scarf makes a great belt. There are also approximately a million (well, almost) other ways to tie a scarf – no cold weather required.

You never need to retire cashmere. That’s just a given.

And lastly, don’t rush to abandon those ski jackets – they’ll still be handy come April showers. Just remove the insulated lining and voilà – instant waterproof shell.

Our Goodbye Winter, Hello Sale Boutiques are open now, but only for a short time longer.
