Yep, it's the first day of spring — technically speaking. The weather is still anything but springy, but we're nevertheless prepping our closets with a few seasonally timed updates — denim-on-denim, billowy dresses, and neon sandals. This way, when the sunshine finally shows up, we'll be ready to spring into
This is our life, in squares.
Natalie Joos braves the cold sans outerwear, showing off her impeccable mixed-texture game. Cable knits and leopard prints: an unlikely match made in style heaven.
Shiona Turini teaches us two important fashion lessons: First, Celine makes sweatpants; second, with the right statement coat and heels, even the baggiest trousers can look sleek.
Since the groundhog's shadow didn't work in our favor, we're bundling up to greet February. @taramillionaire gets ready for six more weeks of winter with a speckled coat and oversized scarf.
Who needs a pop of color when you've got an eye-catching mane? Eugenie Grey keeps her layers slick and monochromatic from the neck down -- with the exception of her coated, burgundy pants.
How do bloggers cope with six more weeks of winter? Sonya Karamazova incorporates a springy color palette into her cold-weather wardrobe, staying bright against a snow-covered backdrop.
Let Susie Lau brighten up your Monday with some top-notch print-mixing: The blogger pairs a Shrimps faux-fur coat with a knit ensemble from House of HAD and patterned sneakers from Mother of Pearl.
The calm before the New York Fashion Week storm is cold and dreary. But, blogger Margaret Zhang stands out against the wintry streets of Manhattan in a green trench coat, layered over a moto jacket and turtleneck for optimal warmth.
All the excitement for fashion week makes us want to jump for our #OOTD. Yuwei Zhangzou celebrated the end of Paris haute couture with a leap, looking forward to spring in a peachy faux-fur coat.
Mother Nature is clearly as excited about New York Fashion Week as we are; she's sending some mid-afternoon snow to welcome fashion folk to the city. Aimee Song covers up her on-trend winter whites in an olive-hued parka, because bloggers need to stay warm, too.
First Kendall Jenner, now Negin Mirsalehi: We've got a long-vest trend on our hands. The blogger's sleeveless cardigan (with pockets!) looks extra-good on a freezing day like today, layered under some extra-warm outerwear.
Showgoers spend so much time planning their New York Fashion Week looks, a little freezing forecast isn't going to deter them from showing off their street-style finest. Valentina Siragusa raises the winter accessories bar, topping off her all-white ensemble with a warm, knit beanie.
A little snow won't put a damper on Natalie Joos' #OOTD game. The blogger braves the elements to show off a wild pair of trousers, keeping warm all the while under a sensible, hooded coat.
Nothing makes us want to spring forward like a good old, eye-catching floral print. Leandra Medine has to layer hers with a knit sweater and skinny trousers, but the bright pattern will have its moment soon enough.
Nicole Warne doesn't have to wave a cab down: Her bright-yellow dress does the trick. On the last day of New York Fashion Week, the blogger -- intentionally or otherwise -- gave a nod to the Big Apple taxis with her #OOTD.
Fashion Month has moved across the pond to more moderate climates, so Natasha Ndlovu can get away with just a moto jacket as she hits the shows. The blogger borrows a few breakout trends from NYFW, though, channelling '70s chic in a fringed topper and suede miniskirt.
When in London, the best accessory truly is Big Ben. Rebecca Laurey reps the U.K. in an all-Topshop look for the brand's runway show, simultaneously winning the prize for Most British #OOTD of LFW.
Eimar Varian Barry takes her winter whites to the next level by mixing textures: The long, linen top, paired with a sequined pencil skirt (and contrasted with Eimar's light locks), adds a surprising layer of contrast to a monochromatic look.
Little Red, is that you? Bo of Sea of Bees has seemingly pulled her scarlet coat straight out of a fairytale. The jacket-over-the-shoulders styling trick, however, is an unmistakable blogger touch.
Valentina Siragusa challenges our notion of "high-low," pairing a super-short dress with an ankle-skimming coat. With fun-sized accessories (an adorably tiny bag), the blogger is ready to take whatever Milan Fashion Week throws her way.
Yes, the forecast is still giving us goosebumps. But, guess what? It's March now -- which means it's about time to (slowly) start transitioning our wardrobe into spring. Blogger Adrienne Kwok-Lundy begins the process with a bright, printed bomber, which she layers over a wintry color palette of navy and black.
To cap off Milan Fashion Week, blogger and photographer Tamu McPherson turns the camera on herself to reveal a springy, pastel ensemble. Feminine florals peek out from under a white cocoon coat, to signal that warmer days are coming -- right?
Eleonora Carisi throws her deuces in the air, in what we can only assume is a peace-out to winter. (Or, at least that's what's implied by her suede mini skirt, lack of tights, and overall sunny disposition.)
Is Hanneli Mustaparta showing off her shoes -- or her impressive barre moves? Either way, she's taking advantage of the Parisian sunshine to don some springtime essentials: peep-toe heels and a mini dress.
A voluminous skirt like this deserves a twirl. Jenny Bernheim takes her eye-catching maxi for a spin, adding some edge to the feminine ensemble with a no-fail leather moto jacket.
Nothing says springtime like a colorful maxi skirt. Kayla Seah is decked out in Kenzo in honor of Paris Fashion Week, but we're copying her bright, pastel look to celebrate this unusually (but wonderfully) warm day.
Feeling blue never felt so good. Shiona Turini suits up in Dior, as one does in Paris. Barney Stinson would be proud.
Tamara Kalinic gets some fringe benefits from her twirl-friendly skirt. And, because it's the last day of Fashion Month, the blogger tops off her ensemble with a French-girl special: an Isabel Marant sweatshirt.
Flared hems and faux leather: These two trends seemingly populate separate trouser universes. But, when brought together by Lainy Hedaya, they make so much sense together.
Nothing says "weekend-ready" like a sleek pair of overalls. Angela Fink has the look down, topping off her ensemble with a camel coat and mirrored sunglasses. Brunch outfit: Check!
It's here — the moment when you can finally peel off those thick, wool socks that have been suffocating your feet for the past four months and set your little piggies free. But, are the sandals that have been lurking under your bed since last summer super-tattered? Are they sporting stains from many years of city
Next-level frames to inspire your spring sunglasses game.
By now, you’re completely done with winter and the clothing associated with it. Those clunky boots next to your door? No thanks. That tired parka? Can’t even look at it. Well, the good news is that relief from this particular form of bad weather is coming soon. But, once the last pile of slush melts, we can count onread
