As what seems to be the longest winter EVER slowly comes to an end, this fashionista shows us how to transition our wardrobe from winter to spring. In her outfit pictured below, senior Britta Dosch successfully mixes patterns and textures to achieve a look that is perfect for a day at work or an afternoon brunch.
When wearing a bold print like the black and white one featured on Britta’s tapered trousers from H&M, it is important to let that be the focal point of the outfit. This trendsetter does just this by pairing them with all black accessories. By choosing this neutral and staying in the same color family, the pants stand out and aren’t overcome by any other aspect of the look.
Since many people find it too risky to mix prints, Britta’s outfit expresses how to mix textures instead. Adding a fur vest like this one from Saks Fifth Ave and patent leather Oxfords from Joe’s Jeans gives the outfit more dimension without looking like an explosion of patterns and color. The vest and shoes are amazing transitional pieces that can easily be worn in winter or spring and perfectly compliment these trendy pants without overpowering them!
