Figuring out what to wear this time of year is a chore. You’re sick of your sweaters and it seems premature to break out a pretty spring dress. Or is it? In a recent In Her Shoes, Net-a-Porter’s Elizabeth von der Goltz, makes a convincing argument for how to wear a dress when it’s still 40 degrees outside. The trick is to find a long-sleeved number that you can layer with high boots and a sharp blazer. You could go with a solid color, but printed dresses happen to be very on-trend for spring. It’s an easy outfit on days you feel like you have nothing to wear.
