Beverly Hills, CA
I swung back to New England for the holiday weekend and the air is crisp, fresh and a bit chilly. Everyone is embracing the sunny weather though. I actually saw a guy driving around in a convertible, which made me laugh. In LA this weather would be considered frigid and back when I was living here I remember doing the same thing. 50 degrees in April?? That's what I used to call shorts weather!
Because I don't have the stamina I once had in high school, it's important to incorporate transitional spring pieces into your outfit. I'm talking short-sleeve sweaters, lighter trench coats and yes a good pom pom cardigan (like this one from Goodnight Macaroon). As you start to incorporate more and more warm-weather pieces into your regular outfit rotation, interesting knits will keep you warm and give your look a unique little twist.
For days (on either coast) when it’s not too hot and not too cold, this sweater is a great alternative to a jacket. I love wearing this in my office (any season) because the AC is always dialed on the colder side. Plus, it effortlessly adds more polish to whatever you're wearing. Toss it over a dress, pair it with high-waisted trousers, or simply wear it over your favorite tee-shirt and jeans (like I did here). A textured, pom pom cardigan is the perfect spring staple piece. It gives your outfits that elevated, cool, yet cozy feel and is perfect for today's New England weather!
