Instantly Double Your Wardrobe With This Trick For Spring Skirts

By now, we're all itching to bust out some of those light, breezy spring pieces — but one step outside proves that it's not quite time to make the switch. However, when we spotted this outfit on Michelle Clements, a textile designer for local fashion label MIRI, we got inspired to sample the best of both worlds.
Here, she's mixing a silk pencil skirt in a sunny, decidedly spring-y citron hue with heavy winter layers — because, you know, it's 38 degrees outside — and it totally works. We love how she balances the delicate skirt with a button-up shirt, boxy coat, and short boots for an effortless, boy-meets-girl vibe. The perfect finishing touch? A bright, punchy pink lip — spring awakening, indeed! What do you think: Are you down with mixing spring's lighter textures with winter staples?
