Depending on where you live, transitional dressing can be very different. Back in my hometown in New England, it often means that you could be dealing with snow one day and 70 degree weather another. While in LA, it's never really too cold or too hot during the transition from winter to spring.
So what is the cross-seasonal piece you need no matter where you live?
The trench coat. It's the perfect weight and length for transitional weather. I love it because it keeps you warm without being too heavy and it's great for layering. And depending on your climate, you can grab one that's warmer or lightweight.
I love to throw it on over a fitted dress for when it’s too chilly to wear alone, with a pair of cropped skinnies or with a printed skirt.
I went classic with the tan color but you can pretty much shop a trench in every shade under the rainbow. I love the idea of a pink version of this, don't you guys? Oh and this particular one is under $50!
