When you’re transitioning between fashion seasons, there are some items that deserve to stay in your closet twelve months out of the year. Here is a list of keepers—those 5 special transition pieces that are flexible enough to stick with your wardrobe season after season.
1. Mid-calf boots or booties
When it’s colder, you can tuck long pants into mid-calf boots or ankle booties and your whole body will feel warmer.
When it’s warmer, wear them barelegged with a dress or a skirt.
2. Slim ankle length or boot cut dark jeans
When it’s colder, wear a riding boot under the boot cut jean or tuck the slim ankle jean into the same boot style. Additionally, you can wear a pump with either style jean for a dressed up casual look, anytime.
When it’s warmer, wear a heeled strappy sandal and a loose top with the slim jean. Or wear a chunky platform with a slim-fit classic tee. Add jewelry.
3. Lightweight cashmere cardigan (pictured above)
When it’s colder, wear a long-sleeved silk or wool T-shirt under it. Add a heavier jacket when heading outdoors.
When it’s warmer, you can wear it open and loose over a tank and pants. Or on a summer night, drape the lightweight cardigan over the straps of your summer dress.
4. Long tanks
When it’s colder, wear a long tank under a cashmere crewneck sweater. The longer inside layer can be a color accent to your outfit and add more interest. It also allows you to wear a more cropped outer piece and have the modesty you need.
When it’s warmer, a long tank is a perfect layer for under sheer tunics or paired with a lightweight eyelet or lace jacket.
5. Lightweight wool scarf
When it’s colder, it’s great to wrap it around your neck and bundle up under a coat, cape or poncho. It can also be a great accent piece if it’s in a patterned print or bright color.
When it’s warmer, it’s a perfect wrap to throw over your shoulders in a chilly restaurant.

What is Your STYLE Personality?
Just as we have our individual personality type (if you are familiar with the Enneagram, you will know about types) that we automatically revert to as we deal with people and situations… we also have a STYLE personality that influences the way we dress and what we buy.
There are six basic STYLE personalities and the first time I was read what a “Classic” personality type was like, I couldn’t believe it!! That was ME!! I couldn’t stop laughing and nodding my head. Then as the rest of the personalities were revealed, we were all laughing and saying,” Oh that is my mother, or sister…”
Knowing your STYLE personality helps to give you a clearer picture of:
• Why you buy certain items
• How you wear things
• How you come across to others (without saying a word)
Join me at the next Living-room Lunch and Learn to discover your STYLE personality.
• What other types of style would you like to incorporate?
• Can you carry off that style? Why or why not?
• Why can your friend/sister where certain things and you can’t, even though you are similar body types?
• What kind of jewelry suits your STYLE personality?
