The Spring Style Guide For Chilly Climates

Photographed by Heather Talbert.
By now, you're totally ready to break up with winter and go zero to 100 with spring (does anyone even remember a world without tights?). But, the reality is that Mother Nature's likely going to strike with a few more cold spells before it's really over. Before you spiral back into your default winter wares of all-black everything, take a few cues from Liz Adams, the style and brains behind Sequins & Stripes

Based in Chicago, where winter can drag on for more than half the year, Adams has become a master at dressing for spring even though the temps may be playing catch-up. Not only does she have all sorts of inventive sartorial tricks to keep her style unhampered by the much-needed layers, she also proves that it's never too early to bust out those springy palettes we're salivating for. Ahead, Adams shows us three season-shifting looks featuring the latest from Old Navy.
