Bonus March Fashion
It’s nearly April, we’d like to think that spring is around the corner (Please tell us it really is coming!) and we’ve got transition on the mind. So we’re super appreciative of wardrobe staples that pull double duty between the seasons. Thankfully, several of the must-have garments in our March fashion feature, “Closet Classics” do just that! We’ve mixed and matched some of the same items from the magazine to give you three extra outfits that show how a versatile wardrobe can be taken from fancy to casual chic.
A Bold Blouse
A burst of color, so perfect for livening up office-wear, can also bring pizazz to your weekend ensembles. Pair a bright crew-neck top with leggings and funky flats for an attention-grabbing yet laid-back look. Blouse by Nic + Zoe, $98; Terese Zache Designs. Legging by Patagonia, $46; A Stone’s Throw. Necklace, $15; Hot Mama. Kicheya flats by Nine West, $50; Boston Store.
Dressed for Anywhere
A little black dress doesn’t always have to be dressy. When worn with a denim jacket and flats, this classy piece has a decidedly casual feel that’s still work-appropriate. Little black dress by Papillon Blanc, $170; Jan Byce Designs. Denim jacket by Kut from the Kloth, $78; Hot Mama. Earrings, $105; Terese Zache Designs. Cross-body bag, $44; Francesca’s. Greenland flats by Circa Joan and David, $67; Boston Store.
The Transitional Tunic
Are your closet’s swankier items being neglected? With riding boots and a pair of skinny jeans, a silk tunic traditionally reserved for evening can be the focal point of relaxed day-on-the-town attire. Tunic by Iris, $198, twiggy legging by Jame’s Jeans, $199; Terese Zache Designs. Necklace by Just the Two of Us, $60; A Stone’s Throw. Watch, $24; Francesca’s. Winter haze boots by Lucky Brand, $219; Boston Store.
