Transitioning a wardrobe can be intimidating. While Vogue ads and fashion bloggers seem to have dressing for a season all figured out, I usually look at florals and pastels absolutely clueless as to how I’m supposed to make them look anything like me. Luckily, it’s not as difficult as I always imagined. All it takes is one or two statement pieces and the right attitude. So grab a tulle skirt, layered necklace, or high rise trousers and pair it with the every day pieces you’re already comfortable with. T shirts and button downs are flexible canvases, and not nearly as daunting as head-to-toe florals.
