What JS Editors are Wearing To Transition from Winter to Spring

It’s come again, Jetsetters—that tricky time between February and March when it’s still cold outside but spring fashion is beckoning. After much experimentation, our editors finally found the perfect outfit combos that’ll take us from freezing to fresh (and probably back to freezing again, since NYC weather can be fickle like that). Below, see how we’re dealing with the seasonal style dilemma, and shop our transitional looks below.

Clara Sedlak, Executive Editor

“For spring, I’m all about this striped blazer paired with skinny jeans, plus a transitional trench coat for when the temps get warmer. And, of course, I’m never without a great pair of booties and a wallet with a pop of color.”

Lately I’ve been drawn to cutesy accessories, especially barrettesI just ordered this sparkly one from Urban Outfitters. I’m also starting to think spring, which means straying from my usual neutrals and incorporating some color into my look. This buttery leather bag is on my radar, along with this J.Hannah nail polish in a classic red shade. Temperatures are still cool in NYC, so I’m sticking with warm sweaters for another month or so, plus jeans and ankle boots that will easily transition into spring.”

“I’m officially ready to pack up my parka and my all-black winter wardrobe. To replace it, I’m gradually adding some color, like this pink hoodie and lighter wash denim. And no NYC outfit is complete without a tote bag—I’ve been eyeing this one from Filson that’s equally as handsome as it is durable.”

 

Lindsey Olander, Editor

“Can you believe it’s almost March?! I’m excited to start adding pastels back into my almost-spring wardrobe. For now, though, it’s still cold as hell in Manhattan, so I’m playing it safe by layering a loose sweater with an oversized coat. It keeps things cozy without having to over-bundle.”

 

Jackie Homan, Editorial Assistant

“Right now I’m layering a knit turtleneck under this black denim dress from Reformation, but when the sun starts to come out, the dress will work just as easily on its own. I’m pairing with cool Western-inspired ankle boots and lots of gold jewelry to pull the look together.”

“Transitional weather can definitely be hard to dress for, and I’m the type of person who goes from cold to hot in the blink of an eye. To make it work, I wear a stylish tee under an equally stylish jacket—the casual yet ‘sort of knows what he’s doing’ look is kinda my thing. Add sneakers, rolled-up jeans, and some low-key statement accessories, and I’m good to go.”

 

Saman Westberg, Style Correspondent

“I’ve been in full-on parka mode all winter, and the sight of mine now makes me wince. It’s still so cold, but with the freeze letting up, I’m pulling more overcoats instead. I’m also not ready to say goodbye to heavier boots and cozy sweaters, but pairing them with white pants switches things up. A pretty print blouse also always works with anything.”
