Top 10 Transition Pieces Under $100

I don't know about you, but I become wary when shopping in the early months. On the one hand, all the winter stuff is on sale, but you aren't quite ready to buy those cute white eyelet shorts (especially if you are living in Canada).

So what do you need? Transition pieces. Things that you can wear when the weather is cold, butstill get your moneys worth during the spring and summer months. And you certainly will get your moneys worth, because all of these are under $100!
You're welcome.

Theory - cord mini
contrary to popular belief, cordury is not just a fall fabric. It looks cute and classy worn like the model in the picture, but pair it with a cute light-weight button-up and cowboy boots for spring and your friends will be wondering how you make so many fantastic outfits on a budget!

Marc by Marc Jacobs - polka-dot sleeveless blouse
a little rock-and-roll under a black blazer with skinnies and ankle boots...a little Mini Mouse-chic tucked into black or white high-waisted shorts and wedges (spots are very hot for spring...but more on that later ;) )

LNA - leggings
these lace leggings can be worn under a sweater dress in the cold, or under a cute white sundress in the spring for a sweet, tea-party-ready look

Juicy Couture - plaid flannel mini will keep you warm with tights, but will still work at the country club.

J Brand - white jeans

fashion "laws" be damned! White jeans can be worn year round, because you want to look good year round, don't you?

on Sale for only $70

Corpus - dainty patterned dress
ruffle dress can be worn over thick wool tights and a turtle neck, then go bare in the spring...the tiny floral pattern and colours work year round!


Vineyard Vines - nautical scarf
The great thing about the nautical trend is that it defies the laws of a trend: it has come back so often that it is considered a classic. Therefore, you see sailor-inspired jackets in the fall, and anchor adorned dresses in the spring

Forever 21 - printed skirt
This skirt is in a flattering a-line cut and in a fun yet versatile pattern that can be worn with anything from sweaters and boots to a halter top and Bonannos

J.Crew - Ruffle Tuxedo Blouse
Your basic preppy shirt with a fresh twist that can be worn peeking out under a corduroy blazer or with the sleeves carelessly pushed up over your favourite khaki shorts and cinched with a braided leather belt...hmmm...I can't wait for summer!

J.Crew - cashmere crewneck cardigan
Your favourite cardigan for 4 reasons: spring, summer, fall and winter
