Transition your wardrobe

in this economy who has money to go out and purchase a brand new winter wardrobe?!?!?! not I... so I am going to give you a few examples of how to "winterize: your spring & summer pieces into looks for the fall & winter by following these basic trend reports. First up:: black tights under your shorts. I did not like this trend at all to begin with, but it has really grown on me, why should you have to hide your shorts for 3-6 months. Slap some black opaque stocking under those shorts & with a great pair of boots and keep it moving into this chilly season. You can pair the look with an oversized cardigan or a statement blazer. I'll blog tomorrow on another transition trend:: turtlenecks with spring dresses!


And here are a few looks I created via polyvore, I really love these looks!

I wasn't a fan of this with jean shorts in the beginning, but it has grown on me also. I have always loved it with tweed and other non jean type fabrics. I have a dark navy cotton romper that I have styled with black tights and a blazer, and I love it!
Can't wait for tomorrows post.
