Layering is key during springtime when most regions of the United States can go to work in the morning with temperatures in the forties and leave work to temperatures the sixties. Plus, you can't beat this play on a classic neutral-tone look. Mix masculine components like a collared shirt and button-up sweater with feminine midi skirts and point-toe ankle boots.
