Statement-Making Layers For Less

Share

It’s a sartorial quagmire: It’s not summer anymore, but it’s not full-on fall yet either. Chunky knits and heavy boots don’t feel quite right, and neither do summer dresses or casual cutoffs. But don’t fret: The plethora of international fashion weeks have garnered a steady stream of street-style shots in which to seek inspiration. Here, a LFW attendee perfectly illustrates a transitional look that’s practical, colorful and totally on-trend while we offer you an affordable version you can shop right now.

A Color-Happy Combo

A flash of ankle and sporty kicks keep this look from veering too far into cold-weather territory, and the calf-grazing sweater coat—punctuated by a brightly hued clutch—makes it seasonally appropriate.
