1. The Long Cardigan

The long cardigan is your office bestie whether there’s a chill in the air, or if you want an added layer of cozy to pair with pre-spring dresses that we know you’re longing to wear. The long, lean lines of this layering piece helps you to make easy, comfortable style look and feel a little more polished. So, go ahead and get all wrapped up.

2. On-The-Go Cargo Jacket

When you want to give your raincoat or denim a rest, a utility-chic cargo jacket is the way to go. Keep your look light and easy with this all-weather staple. Cinch the waist with a belt for a defined silhouette, combine it with a blanket scarf with boots and boyfriend jeans for added warmth, or cuff the sleeves and add joggers for a relaxed athleisure-ly weekend look.

3. Quilted Vest

Minimize bulk without sacrificing warmth in a quilted vest. Go for contrast with a dark vest and a lighter top, or vice versa. This layering piece works well with a turtleneck or long-sleeve knit. The best part is that, depending on the weather, you can choose heavier or lighter layers to adjust to your temperature needs.

If it’s cool outside, casually rock it with a pullover or zipped hoodie and your favorite joggers. Take your style to task at work, and try a dark denim jacket with a subtle floral dress, tights and booties.
