Is it just us, or is everybody in Chicago totally sick of winter? Seriously, our weather is nothing if not fickle — wreaking total havoc on our outfit decisions and wondering just how to dress for these in-between months. That's why we're taking notes from local blogger, Liz Schneider of Sequins + Stripes, to create the perfect crossover look. With an outfit this fierce — spring can wait!
Here, Liz shows us that layering for chilly temps doesn't have to be all about functionality — you can have some fun, too. Take a walk on the wild side with an animal-print coat (cheetah is certainly having a moment), and relish the post-blizzard era with these eye-catching heels. An understated clutch ties the look together, making this perfect ensemble for those tricky day-to-night plans.
