A Month of Outfits to Get You to Spring

For senior stylist Sarah Rose, outfit planning—yes, even twenty-eight outfits in one shot—is a game of optimizing. One that involves a hyperstreamlined palette (peppered with pops of color). Chameleon-like classics to mix, match, and mingle as you see fit. And: some season-shifting styling aids that’ll show you just how resourceful your closet can be.

WEEK

The trick to making your wardrobe work smarter, not harder, is to stretch the layers throughout the month. See the drawstring denim jacket? The classic stripes? The creamy bomber-style sweater? Hang on to those—they’ll come in handy later, too.

Stylist’s Note: “I love denim on denim—it’s a total cool-girl move. And the Blair jumpsuit is one of those unicorns that you can wear with a jean jacket for errands, then top with a cardigan for lounging to give it a completely new vibe.” —Sarah Rose

WEEK

When you’ve got emails to draft, work wives to Zoom, and a midweek workout you penciled in with your wellness tracker, you’ll want pretty prints, darling waist-up details, and a totally practical sweatdress to ensure all bases are covered.

Stylist’s Note: “When in doubt, don’t be afraid to double down on the details: The puff is a goop trademark, the dots feel a little retro, and the pajama-style jumpsuit—which can go loungy or dressy—reminds me of an old-school Diane Von Furstenberg from the ’70s.” —Rose

WEEK

All it takes are a few strategic swaps—sweatshorts in lieu of sweatpants, a collegiate sweatshirt that feels right at home over a crisp collar, and the aforementioned bomber-style sweater over a utility jumpsuit—to make the foundational pieces you leaned on all of week one feel fresh.

Stylist’s Note: “A good rule of thumb: Opposites attract. Pull a big comfy hoodie over an A-line dress to keep that pretty poplin from taking itself too seriously.” —Rose

4

WEEK

Swishy shapes, skimpy shorts, and shin-baring silhouettes: Week four is a love letter to warm-weather dressing in all its forms. All those in favor of a spring-ready switch-up say: aye.

Stylist’s Note: “I’m obsessed with Thursday’s outfit. It’s actually a puff-sleeve shirtdress I tied around a pair of wide-legs for a look that’s a little more unexpected, with a modern twist—something you could wear anywhere, really.” —Rose
