Oh, the weather outside is…weather. We’ve got allergies like it’s springtime, but yesterday, it was snowing like mid-winter. It’s sunnier, but also still cold. This isn’t what Miley meant when she sang about the best of both worlds.
This is all to say that this year, it feels like transitional items are more important in our wardrobes than ever. So we asked Kourt’s longtime stylist, Dani Michelle, to share her must-haves for navigating this blurry transition from winter to spring.
Shop her picks below.
“Lightly knit dresses are the perfect transitional piece between seasons. They’re easy to throw on, and they create a smooth line when wearing a long jacket for warmth. Or wear it by itself on warmer days. Khaite did a beautiful job showcasing the many ways in which knitwear can be worn all year long, and some of my other favorites are from YSL, Tory Burch, St. Agni and Aritzia,” Dani tells us.

“Another of my favorite transitional pieces—and a staple for myself and my clients—is the long sleeve mini dress. I love these with a little loafer (Proenza, Margiela, By Far) in the spring, a knee-high boot (The Row, Gia Borghini, Paris Texas) and stockings in the fall, and a heeled sandal (Studio Amelia, The Row, Manolo) in the summer,” Dani says.

“I love leather pants! They’re a chic and sexy must-have that suits both day and night. They’re really a staple ‘cause a pair of well-fitted leather pants seamlessly work year round—with a little tank in the summer and a statement jacket in the fall,” Dani says.

“A classic, white button-down is a staple in my wardrobe. I like to make this a bit more preppy in the fall with a mini skirt and tights, maybe even a vest on top. Then, as the weather starts to warm up, I love to pair an oversized white button-down with denim for that chic, effortless look,” Dani says.
