What to wear for spring transition

Bonnet

Spring weather has it's moments, especially here in the northwest. One day it's warm and sunny, the next could be gloomy with thunderstorms. How on Earth is one supposed to dress for this? Clever accessories, of course!

A casquette cap is a great everyday style that looks great with a sweater and jeans. Pair the look with a cotton bag, which is a lighter and more season appropriate choice than leather.

Guys, stick with the long sleeve button down (roll up the sleeves when the sun shines!) or keep a lightweight jacket handy over a tee. All-weather hats won't be too warm and will keep you dry in case of surprise showers.

Layers are your best friend when it comes to unpredictable weather. Don't pack up the cashmere just yet, and carry an oversized cotton scarf with you to bundle up in a pinch. A cap is the perfect casual style to keep the entire look fresh and un-fussy.

Headed out to the coast? Pack an adjustable wide brim that stays put when the wind picks up, and keeps you shaded when partly cloudy becomes mostly sunny.
