January is finally here and what better way to say goodbye to 2020 and hello to 2021 than with some outfit ideas! In South Central Texas where we are the weather starts to warm up a little bit and most days are sunny and a cool seventy degrees. With the weather change, we start to pack up our sherpa coats and wrangler jackets and transition into our spring wardrobe. One of my favorite ways to transition my winter wardrobe into spring is to pick out 3-4 winter staple pieces and find different ways to mix and match them.
For example, you can never go wrong with velvet. Velvet is the perfect transitional piece because it’s classy, warm, and can be dressed up or down. Pair that velvet top with a necklace, cute jeans, and boots and you’re set! This outfit would be perfect for work or dinner with the girls. The best part about it is that on a colder night you can throw a jean jacket on top and it still looks great! It’s a win-win.
In a colder area and can’t completely ditch the coats yet? Don’t worry, we have an outfit for you too! Transition that jacket over to the spring by pairing it with a fun, light-colored button-down. The light colors are great for spring and serve as an extra layer of warmth on the days when it gets really chilly. Throw on your favorite pair of dark wash jeans and top off the look with your felt hat and you’re good to go!
We love tall boots as much as the next girl, so we can’t stand to pack them up yet! Pair your tall boots with a pair of skinny jeans, we love these jeans by Vervet, and your favorite Johnny Was blouse. Now you’ve got an outfit that’s perfect for those cool Texas January days. Johnny Was tops are ideal for a winter day here in Texas. The long sleeves will keep you comfy during the chilly mornings but are light enough you’ll still be cool once it warms up in the afternoon.
