Any way the wind blows doesn’t really matter. Trust clever layers to carry you through the eye of any storm.
If you had begun building a wardrobe around transitional pieces, you might have the following pieces in your wardrobe: first, the big blazer, for layering over either chunky knits or ribbed tanks; the short trench coat, for inclement weather; or the lightweight denim jacket, to brave bouts of wind on an otherwise balmy day. These are garments that could never do wrong, but if you feel that your looks are becoming a bit repetitive, move back toward your wardrobe basics, reimagined through subversive layering for new modes of wear.
For the cold, tie a jacket around the waist to break up a monochrome ensemble, or wear your white shirt backwards for visual interest (over a turtleneck, for an added layer of coziness). And for the heat, balance comfort with a bit of flair; coverage doesn’t necessarily equate cooler, as long as you find the right fabrics. Look for second-skin layers with sleek lines: a sheer crew neck long sleeve T-shirt or, for something a little less clingy, a mesh shift dress to add contemporary edge without raising your body temperature.
