Either you deserve a new sweater because you’ve made it this far into the winter without going crazy, or because your autumn is just beginning and you are ready to get in the mood!
But an accent 2nd layer – with or without a coordinating tee shirt or blouse – can bring a lot of new life to your cool weather wardrobe…
note: all of these pants are the same as I shared last week; you should be able to wear a good pair of pants a dozen different ways!
This might be a smart time to grab a cotton cardigan and lightweight tee shirt – these pieces would be useful WELL into the early summer:
A pretty spring color can give you a little bit more mileage for your corduroy pants:
You don’t HAVE to wear matching sweaters and tops! This cardigan would go with almost anything…
And your “cardigan” doesn’t have to actually be a sweater; I’m personally getting a lot of mileage out of shirts over tee shirts these days:
Maybe you’re somewhere that is better suited for warmer, darker colors – or you’re taking advantage of finding these things now, and will have them ready to hand NEXT autumn…
Maybe you’ll find a couple of garments that you can wear with your dark neutral now, and then wear with your lighter neutral when the weather warms up. This shade of periwinkle would be lovely with light grey, or navy, or white…
I’m already keeping my eye open for good linen tops – the really nice ones sell out fast!
p.s. Nine years ago, I shared with you a travel wardrobe (based on 2 scarves) in beige, mint green and bright blue… I think it’s still pretty lovely!
