Spring Dusters + Jumpsuits

Sometimes spring is such a weird season, because winter's just ended, but it's not so warm like summer; you can't layer too much or you'll overheat, yet if you don't cover up enough you'll find yourself chilly.  The solution?  A lightweight jacket; make a statement, and keep yourself warm enough to ward off the cool weather, without overdoing it.

My favorite?  The duster, which I first saw on Kim K, and instantly fell in love (see for yourself in this roundup post + today's duster feat. in this post).  Duster jackets are so sleek and sophisticated, easily dressing up a simple piece-- like today's jumpsuit.

Duster: Forever21, old (similar) || Jumpsuit: aerie, old (similar) || 
Bralette: aerie || Booties: Lucky Brand, via Poshmark (similar) || 
Necklace: Forever21 || Sunnies: Wish app || Watch: c/o Fossil || 
Belt: Forever21 (similar) || Bag: J. Crew Factory 

I'm loving the pastel-y, steely purple of this duster, it's a pretty pop of color that's not so overwhelming; it's the perfect color to transition into spring with!

Even though this look is like 80% black, it still has a very spring-y feel to it thanks to the details.  The bralette that I've layered with this jumpsuit has a pretty, flower lace; so even though it's all black, there's still a chic nod to spring present.

Add a sparkly statement necklace, with the same colors incorporated from the jacket give the outfit a nice break from the dominantly black color palette.

A black jumpsuit, like today's, is a must-have that can be worn all seasons.  It's a blank canvas on which you can accessorize and style in a zillion different ways; dressed up or down, it's all how you wear it that day!

Another reason why I love staple pieces like a duster jacket, or classic jumpsuit, is that, because you can style it so many different ways, it makes transitioning from season to season that much less stressful.  A few good, classic pieces can be taken from season to season, and have a few special accessories added on to make them seasonally appropriate-- instant chic!

How do you layer up in spring?  :)
