Use Color to Offset Heavier Knits

You want to embrace the change of seasons head on, but you still find yourself shivering if you leave the house in just a T-shirt. Try pairing a warm sweater with pants or a skirt in a classic spring shade, like daffodil yellow or delicate lilac.

Go Short, Then Long

Pairing a short skirt with a long jacket will help give the illusion of mile-long legs.
