Outfit 1: Dress + Skirt
Traveling? Make the most of your pieces. Adding the skirt disguises the dress as a top. Bonus: The bottom of the dress becomes a built-in “slip” to fend off the last of winter’s static cling.
To buy: $48; jcrew.com.
Outfit 2: Sweater + Blouse + Jeans
Leave the top’s ties loose and pull on the sweater to give this work-friendly blouse a cozier, ready-for-the-weekend vibe.
Kendra Scott Bracelets
To buy: Tiania Pinch bracelet set, $80; kendrascott.com.
Outfit 3: Scarf + Blouse + Jeans
Classics with updated details—statement sleeves, raw hems—combine to make a pretty date-night look any time of year.
Outfit 4: Dress + Heels
Thanks to the mix of dark and light hues, this floral print feels seasonless. Tall black boots look great while it’s still chilly; come warmer weather, swap them out for springtime staple neutral pumps.
Cole Haan Belt
To buy: $80; colehaan.com.
Outfit 5: Sweater + Jeans + Flats
Ditch the sweats—this casual sweater-denim combo is just as comfortable (and infinitely more pulled together).
