The best way to make the most out of your wardrobe budget? Buy styles you can wear now and later. You probably already know how to make your jeans work all year, but when it comes to sweaters and shorts, things can get a bit trickier.

J.Crew dress. Rebecca Minkoff bag. Rachel Comey mules.

In the colder months, layer a dress over a tee or button-up. Just add a warm coat, ankle booties, and tights. In the spring, pair with cute open-toed mules.

Theory dress. Old Navy jean jacket. Coach bag. Rachel Comey mules.

Stripes are everyone’s favorite spring staple, but I love them in winter. A striped sweater dress is the perfect transition piece. Wear it over skinny jeans for a surprisingly chic outfit.

  • Choose a pick-me-up to brighten dull days.

Wear a colorful sweater in the winter to liven up any outfit. In the spring, one of my favorite combos is a sweater with shorts. Unexpected and oh so cute.

Do flares with a striped sweater and clogs for a 70s-inspired look. As it warms up, pair with a printed button-up in a pastel hue and swap the clogs for sandals.
