There are a lot of lightweight fabric choices out there when it comes to buying for the summer months. But now that winter is fast approaching, how can those looks be transitioned?
We should start off by saying that you will need to buy some clothes for the winter. This guide relies heavily on a good coat and solid shoes. You’ve gotta keep warm! I’d say your classic lightweight wool and cotton jackets will transition best into cooler months.
There’s really not a lot of ways to extend the life of a linen blazer or a flex wool blend, except with a scarf and skinny black pants. That being said, that is still an excellent look. My office likes to really crank up the heat in the winter, so I often wear a big, tailored overcoat outside and take it off immediately when I get to my desk. My light blue blazers save me in that sudden heat! I hate sweating and this is my best way around it sometimes.
I also often wear a thin sweater underneath for a really layered effect. I can mute my lighter colors with dark sweaters, dark ties, and a white collared shirt.
For your lighter weight wool and cotton jackets, the weight of the fabric makes them even more versatile than the linen and flex layerable ones! My favorite unexpected winter look is my khaki blazer, brown cords, boots, and a white shirt.
Just remember to wear a scarf or hat with the coat because any of these options won’t keep you as warm as your winter wool suits do. Just think about going for a look like this, albeit without sunglasses and with a coat.
