From Shackets to Show-Off Socks, 36 Transitional Weather Essentials to Wear Now

From Shackets to Show-Off Socks, 36 Transitional Weather Essentials to Wear Now

When the weather is 42 degrees in the morning, 72 in the afternoon, and a brisk 57 in the evening, transitional weather essentials are superheroes in our wardrobes. Instead of overheating in a puffer coat, perhaps a shacket (half-shirt, half-jacket) is what you need? Or maybe it’s a lightweight leather coat or a classic denim jacket.

Transitional weather essentials go beyond outerwear; sleeveless turtlenecks are the best basics to have in your spring wardrobe. Layer them underneath an oversized sweater or with a strapless dress that you can’t wait to break out. If it feels too soon to commit to a sandal, try testing the waters with statement socks or play the fence with a middle-of-the-road loafer or clog.

You’ll find these and more transitional weather essentials, ahead.

The Shacket

Pair all of your crop, halter, and swim tops with one of these easy-going layering essentials. Pick a crisp white or leather piece for dressier moments, or go with a denim or plaid option for casual days ahead.

The Sleeveless Turtleneck

Take your base layers to the next level with a sleek sleeveless turtleneck. The peek-a-boo effect of the high neckline looks chic underneath blazers and chunky knits.

The Spring Coat

Trade your heavy-duty layers for lightweight, seasonally-appropriate styles—like the Ahluwalia’s magical trench or a polished raincoat from Rains.

The Show-Off Sock

Keep your toes and ankles covered with made-to-be seen socks. They’ll make for perfect partners with loafers or high-heel sandals.

The Denim Jacket

When all else fails, you can always count on the timeless denim jacket to get you through unpredictable weather. The jean fabric is warm enough to protect you from brisk winds and the silhouette is cool enough to tie around your neck or waist once temps heat up.

The Retro Windbreaker

Go back in time with a sporty chic piece that’s perfect for unpredictable weather.
