Dressing for the highly unpredictable transition between winter and spring weather makes getting ready in the morning all the more complicated. How do you incorporate spring colors and prints without comprising your warm commute to work? Thanks to Lucy Hale's windowpane coat, finding the balance between spring and winter style just got a whole lot easier.
The actor was photographed while out and about in Los Angeles on Feb. 20 wearing a seasonally transitional wardrobe staple. Hale donned a white wool coat by Reiss, featuring a windowpane print, a longline hem, tailored pockets, and prominent lapels. In typical Hale fashion, she layered the subtle statement coat on top of a simple, black turtleneck that she tucked into high-waisted, straight-leg denim with multiple buttons.
Similar to many of her other street-style looks, Hale kept it casual in a pair of fur-lined slides with a soft, pointed toe. She carried a vintage-inspired tote bag by Salvatore Ferragamo, complete with a top handle, a flap closure, a logo print, and an industrial-looking buckle.
While her frequent hair changes have welcomed plenty of attention over the past few months, she opted for an understated hairstyle in the form of a swept-back low ponytail with a middle part, showcasing her copper highlights.
The fashion market was filled with heavy wool coats for fall and winter, primarily in darker shades like olive green, caramel, maroon, and of course, black. Although Hale's most recent addition to her outerwear lineup is just as warm as any winter coat, the soft color helps bring it into the spring sphere.
Make it as easy as possible by styling it exactly like Hale with a solid black top, dark-wash denim, and your favorite pair of slip-ons. If you're looking to dive even deeper into the world of spring tones, try layering your soft-colored coat on top of a neon green sweater, a light pink hoodie, or a lilac blouse.
