Once we change our clocks to daylight savings time, I start itching to bust out my warm weather wardrobe. But living in New England, I know there will still be lots of chilly days ahead. One compromise is to start wearing sweaters in sunny colors that remind us of the upcoming summer months but will still keep us warm now. Once the weather heats up, they can remain in service as an extra layer for evenings or worn draped over our shoulders as an added style element to our outfit.
This season, pastels are popping up on every retailer’s website. Whether you gravitate towards pinks, lavenders, yellows or blues, I have found a spring sweater that will add a bounce to your step. Most are in natural fabrics like cotton and wool that breathe well and hold up season after season. All look fantastic worn with faded denim for that cool, chic vibe us BA50’s love. See my Top Ten below.
