5 Transitional Spring Pieces You Need Right Now

spring-transitional-pieces

The last few months of winter can be particularly challenging when choosing an outfit. It’s either too cold for that sexy LBD you’ve been dying to wear or too hot for those thigh high leather boots with the fur. Have no fear, we’ve chosen a few Bombette-approved pieces that will make getting dressed in the AM a breeze.

 

Long Sleeves… a must. These months are still fairly cold so long sleeves are great if you want to opt for a coatless look.

 

Lighter colored coats make any outfit pop and it is also an easy way to change up your drab-dark winter wardrobe. We love a good beige coat because it works well with any color.

 

Scarves are essential regardless of season, however, they are most helpful when you want to wear less but still stay warm. Wrap it around as a shall or double it around your neck, either way, it looks great.

 

Nothing is more “cozy causal chic” than white jeans in the winter! Our favorite way is to combine them with a cashmere sweater, oversized scarf and little black booties. Try our go-to pairs below!

 

Hats are chic, convenient when you’re having a bad hair day and help keep your head warm. Check out the ones we have in our closet!

Valentines Day Gifts From The Heart

Red Lips

The old chocolate and roses thing is great, don’t get us wrong. However, if you want to really impress your significant other then we suggest getting them something that they’ve had their eyes on for a while. It makes the gift more personal and meaningful. For the record, women love gifts. Whether we want to admit it or not, we just do. Men (and women) should know that old saying “less is more” does NOT apply on Valentines Day. Trust us and we promise you will be getting a handsome reward later.


Here’s our edit of standout gifts:

Mastering Airport Style

Because vacation starts the moment you step into the terminal.


  1. Shoes: Opt for a closed toe flat shoes. If you can’t do without wearing heels, wear heeled boots.
  2. Pants: Pants with a little stretch are essential. I prefer black stretchy skinny jeans, however, yoga pants or boyfriend jeans work just fine.
  3. Top: Keep it simple. Cotton is best. I like to pair a white tee with blue jeans or a black tee with black jeans.
  4. Cardigan: A thin long cardigan that covers your rear will keep you moderately warm throughout the terminal and is great layering piece underneath your jacket.
  5. Outerwear: This is the most important piece! It shouldn’t be too bulky but you should be able to dress it up or down.  A leather jacket, black blazer or wool robe works best.
  6. Accessories: Glasses and oversized scarfs are a MUST and definitely pull the airport look together. My favorite glasses are ones with oversized lenses or colorful frames.

The Only Holiday Dresses You Need

#1 THE SPARKLE

They say fashion comes and goes but style lasts forever. The sparkly dress has stood the test of time and is thee style piece to be worn in December. This is in large part due to (1) daylight savings ending and being that it gets darker earlier, we want to wear something that stands out and (2) trying to outshine the Christmas and New Years decorations.

#2 THE SHEER

Imagine a sheer dress like a cookie jar. You can see inside just enough where it makes your mouth start to water, and you can look but you can’t touch. Sheer dresses work in this manner, and the more the fabric covers the sexier it becomes.

#3 THE SLIP

The Slip is a soft and sensual staple piece that can truly go from daytime to night time. Dress it up with a fur coat, wear it down with jeans and a white t-shirt underneath or make it business casual with a blazer. It’s simply the most versatile piece and it takes up the same amount of room in a suitcase as a little black dress! The best way to wear it for a more elegant look is to mix it with different fabric mediums like leather or velvet (preferably of the same color) so that it compliments the luminosity of the slip.

Up Your Jewelry Game

Stackable Rings (2)

This fall, layering is no longer just for clothes–jewelry too! We are loving stackable rings because they are a great way to accessorize without going overboard! They are soft, elegant and can be worn multiple ways. When buying stackable rings, think unique rather than complicated. Maybe the ring isn’t a perfect circle or the diamonds are extremely tiny, maybe the metal is engraved or has a different texture–whatever the detail may be–go for a ring with just enough detail to make it look interesting when stacked. Also, don’t be fooled by their small size, these rings can make just as much of a statement as large fashion rings do (which are totally out by the way).

Stack one on each finger for a dainty look or stack them all on one finger for a little more bling.


This is also an incredibly thoughtful gift for Friendsgiving or Christmas! I have about 6 stackable rings which were ALL given to me by my dearest friends and family! Tip: Make sure you know what color jewelry they like to wear (silver, rose or gold). Stackable rings look best when they are all the same color!

V for Velvet

Velvet is just one of those fabrics that can be spotted from miles away and is irresistible to touch! This makes it perfect for dressing up any casual outfit while making a few heads turn in the process. Especially with all of the holiday parties coming up, velvet is my #1 go-to fabric when I want to be festive but still look chic!
