The hardest days to dress for in spring are those, when it is not freezing-cold, but not warm neither. I call these days the neither-fish-nor-meat days which is a direct translation of the German “weder Fisch noch Fleisch.”

On such days, your best bet is to go for layering. The idea is that you can drop a layer at the office and/or when temperatures are up a bit during lunch break due to the Sun’s diurnal cycle. Other options than the one shown in the photos are to wear a layering top under or a sweater over a sheath dress with a jacket for the commute. Or what about replacing the denim jacket in the above outfit by a cardigan. What about ditching the denim jacket in the outfit shown in the photo and wearing a puffer vest over the blazer. In all this layering, the goal is to avoid wearing a winter coat that would provide similar insulation as the combined items, but would be too warm for the warm part of the chilly spring day.

You also may want to read how to look slim and what mistakes to avoid when layering.

What are your ideas on how to dress on these transition between winter and spring days? What are your greatest challenges in dressing during the transition season? Send me an email, I am curious.
