Transition Easily With Neutrals

PhotoGrid_1485831505197I cannot tell you how many times I been so excited for cooler weather and have ended up dressing too warm.  Why? The mornings start off cold. I pull on my sweater and boots only to end up sweating like a pig later that afternoon when the sun comes out. Conversely, after a long cold winter I’m super excited for Spring. This time, I wear my favorite floral maxi dress only to end up freezing later on when the cold front comes in. Yes, it can really be a challenge to figure out what to wear when transitioning from one season to the next!

The answer: neutrals!

“With good basics you’ll have endless options.” -Kapten & Son

Neutrals are seasonless because they are basic colors. Black, tan, white, gray, cream, and camel can be easily paired with just about everything. And when put together they make the perfect color palette to transition from one season to the next.

The Black and White Colorblock Dress is a great example of a neutral color palette than can go from Winter to Spring. I love the soft material! Size small was the perfect fit for me. At 5 feet 7 inches tall, the dress hits my legs mid thigh. I choose to wear this dress as a tunic by placing black skinny jeans underneath. With 3/4 quarter length sleeves I was not too hot in the sun, nor too cold in the Spring Breezes. Today’s high was a sunny 75°F. With a full day of sun in the forecast, I choose to add more neutrals to this look with the tan wedges and matching a handbag. However, had there been overcast clouds on the horizon I would have paired my dress (now a tunic) with sleek black over the knee boots and a matching handbag for warmth.PhotoGrid_1485831732164PhotoGrid_1485831271353PhotoGrid_1485831205607PhotoGrid_1485831360362What about jewelry? I like sticking with metallic jewelry. Gold looks best against the warm tones of my skin. This time Rocksbox, a monthly jewelry subscription company, sent me rose gold. I was really surprised to enjoy the softness of of the rose gold.  I’m now a fan. Which do you prefer?

      Thank you so much Steph! I’m so glad I was able to wear it as a tunic. I’m too tall to call it a dress.
