“Winter, we need to talk. You were great, spoiling me with hot cocoa and lavish selections of bulky scarves — but I am moving on. As much as I love you and fur coats, I have been getting closer to spring each day. Oh, and I am not returning your stuff. Love, Maggie.”

Winter wraps us in oversized knitwear, while spring brings us colors, prints, and those ever-endearing pale blue and white stripes. This time of year is usually when we say to ourselves, “I’m not shopping for any winter clothes.” Yet, we are stuck between winter and spring styles. What to wear?

With help from four local boutiques, we’ve put together some trendy outfits for both seasons. Whether it’s snowing, or warm with blue skies, we have you covered — or, if you choose, uncovered.


1. The Distressed Denim

The tapered boyfriend look is so hot right now, and Kristi Boutique has assembled two outfits featuring a pair of Henry + Belle denim. One pair of jeans and two looks for two seasons? Lucky us!

THE WINTER LOOK
Step into these jeans, and pair them with a refreshing indigo blouse. And, because it’s still cold, throw a cashmere sweater on top — tie it around your shoulders, or pop the denim collar underneath. Add a distressed brown and teal belt, moss ankle booties, and a delicate crystal-braided headband, and this outfit is perfect for any winter day.

2. The Black Dress

The traditional LBD meets transitional seasoned looks. The Picket Fence in Shadyside has created two unique looks featuring a cozy, yet seductive, little black dress. This infamous piece of your wardrobe just got a little more stylish.

THE WINTER LOOK
If you’re able to brave the winter chills, a black dress is a great staple piece for your wardrobe. Keep warm with a black and white striped blazer — perfect for day or night. Better yet, accessorize this look with a tri-tone, chevron necklace and unique cork clutch.
