It may be unthinkably cold outside still, but in a few short weeks, Mother Nature will throw a slightly warmer day at you. When that first happy day (in what seems like a century) arrives, don't completely lose it and dig out your shorts and tees — it's not going to be that hot outside, people. Layering is still crucial; you'll just be able to forgo the four sweaters and three thermals you've been wearing since December.
To give you some inspiration — and to keep your layering acumen at an all-time high during this in-between time — we styled the six looks ahead. Each comes with tips for what to take off and put on in order to keep comfortable this season. Click through for your new go-to March look. Remember: These tricks will come in handy all the way through June, when you can finally wear those cutoffs and nothing else. (Well, probably a top, too — or not! You do you.)
