Ladylike layering, mixing textures & styling transition pieces

Spring is officially here, but during March it is pretty chilly where I live in West Virginia, so I am still sporting all my favorite sweaters–including this thrifted beauty. To keep my most-worn pieces looking fresh, I absolutely love to mix-and-match different textures, especially knitwear, satin, lace and leather.

For a casual look today, I layered a beige turtleneck over a pale gray slip dress. The delicate satin and lace accents on the dress add a feminine touch to the chunky knit sweater, which made the entire outfit look effortless.

I also added black stockings for even more texture (and to stay warm). Then, I polished the ensemble off with my go-to snake print booties; the worn-in leather always kicks any outfit up a notch. To ensure focus was on my outfit, I tied my hair in a low, messy bun, and opted for minimal makeup. Finally, I accessorized with my rose gold nameplate necklace and a few decorative rings for some sparkle.

While a fluffy gray coat kept me snuggly on this day, I cannot wait for warmer temps so I can pair this ultra-femme slip dress with a badass leather jacket and fishnets.
