Top Buys: Transitional Pieces

While some of us like to live in the moment, others like to plan ahead, and others still like to fall neatly between. No matter which category you belong to, however, here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone we believe January is the perfect month for plotting out your transitional wardrobe—or, to be specific, the pieces that will take you from winter into spring. After all, is there ever a bad time to shop? Not so much. On that note, today’s Top Buys story is jam-packed with pieces that will help you make a smooth transition, so read on for all the need-to-know details!

The first thing to keep in mind when putting together your transitional wardrobe is layering—when the weather is up and down, having the ability to slip in and out of different pieces is a must. With that in mind, let us first introduce you to Topshop’s Pearl-Embellished Jacket ($190). There are two reasons to love this jacket. Firstly, the cropped, lightweight silhouette ensures it will work on both warm winter days and chilly spring days. Plus, the pearl embellishments make it the perfect piece for a girl-on-the-go, who needs something that will take her from a casual business meeting to a night out with friends. The Guan Patchwork Denim & Plaid Shirt ($490) by Etoile Isabel Marant is another great layering piece. On warmer days, this would look amazing layered over a simple white tank top, while on colder days, you can layer this shirt under an army green anorak. By the same token, Joie’s Yolanda Sweater ($238) is a great piece for these transitional months. Its slouchy silhouette gives it a casual twist, while the soft color palette adds a light, airy feel to it. We would pair it with skinny jeans and ankle boots on colder days, then swap out the jeans for a pair of cut-off shorts as the weather warms.

With all these tops, you are bound to need some bottoms, and we are pleased to report that we have a couple of cute options. First, make sure you check out the Cropped Stretch-Corduroy Straight-Leg Pants ($195) by James Perse. They have a casual-chic vibe, making them perfect for vacations, early-spring barbecues, and days out on the town, plus they would look just as chic with heels as a pair of flats. We also recommend you sneak a peek at Vanessa Bruno Athe’s Leather Mini Skirt ($338). What can we say about this skirt? It can be worn as the centerpiece of your outfit, or layered under a sweater and jacket for a more casual look. Plus, the laser-cut detail gives it a chic twist.

If at heart you are a dress girl, we have plenty of options for you. For casual days, we recommend you check out the 1×1 Maxi Sweater Dress ($75) by T by Alexander Wang. This is a seriously versatile piece that can easily be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. Our preference? We see it with a cropped leather jacket a la Kate Moss. If you need something a little dressier, make sure you take a look at the Good Girl Gone Bad Bodycon Dress ($108) by Free People. The almost-metallic lace detail gives this dress a glam twist, while the knit fabric and longer sleeves ensure that you will stay cozy when necessary. Once again, this is a great choice for the girl who needs a day-to-night option. Finally, we have a must-have accessory to wrap up today’s story: the Houndstooth Haze Scarf ($52) by Madewell. A lightweight scarf is always a great piece to have on hand during the transitional months. When it is chilly, your scarf becomes an extra layer. When it is warm, however, you can give your handbag a chic twist by knotting the scarf on the strap. Happy shopping!
