3 FLY TRANSITIONAL LOOK COMBOS TO WEAR IN IFFY WEATHER

STYLED BY SHARRA 

So, I'm sure I'm not the only one who's been inspired to do a closet audit! Something about Spring makes us want to start fresh and level up, especially style wise!

One thing about March is that the weather is still usually pretty inconsistent. It can be really chilly one day but warm and sunny af the next. The good thing about early Spring though is that you can mix both Winter and Spring staples to create a look that’s interesting and unique, while still being season appropriate. Think mixing vibrant colors with traditional Fall boots, pairing cozy spring trousers with sexy open toe sandals on sunny days, and adding eye catching prints to dark ensembles.

Stay ahead of the curve with a few of my personal fave chic styles that you can easily layer (or unlayer) when adapting your wardrobe to the weather, along with my style guides on how you can rock each one.

(P.S. I've curated similar shopping links for you to shop since the app that I originally created these looks on is no longer available!)

ALL BLACK & A POP OF COLOR

Bold patterns in bright colors scream Spring. But what happens when Spring is not quite in full bloom? That’s when I like to tone down my favorite vibrant pieces with darker shoes and accessories.

How to Wear it: Pair a busy printed bottom with a sexy top make it season appropriate with sleek boots. If it’s chilly, you can layer it with a cropped leather jacket, which still shows off your shape while keeping your arms warm.

CARGO PANTS + ANKLE BOOTS

Shop a similar look  : bardot top,  cargo pants ,  gold bag ,  ankle boots ,  necklace .

Shop a similar look: bardot top, cargo pants, gold bag, ankle boots, necklace.

Lounge pants with a bomb heel is my go to “dressy-cas” vibe. Pairing khaki and olive tones with lively yellows and golds can Spring up a dull look.

How to Wear it: If you go slouchy on the bottom, go bodycon up top, and vise versa. Choose an ankle boot or open toe sandal to show off the hem of your pants of choice. Build up the look with metallic accessories.

OFF THE SHOULDER TOPS + LEATHER BOTTOMS

     Okay, these BETTER stick around because my closet is full of 'em! Always classy and charming, with a hint of sultry, off the shoulder tops are a never-ending closet must-have. It gives you the best of both worlds, covering up your arms while showing some shoulder. The interesting texture of leather skirts, shorts, and pants, can give your flirty tops some edge.

How To Wear it: Add on a pair of drop earrings to draw attention to your bare shoulder. Throw in pops of warm colors to show you’re ready for the Spring.

Mixing separates like these can drastically increase the shelf life of your wardrobe during the in between seasons! #styledbysharra

" A SARTORIAL STROLL" WEB EDITORIAL : BY SHARRA GREENE STYLING, D. RICE PHOTOGRAPHY, SOPHIA YESHI, AND BRITTANY MAIN

     This editorial started as a daydream of mine... a daydream of a woman dressed in styles inspired by the 90's high fashion street style stories that we'd see featured in Vogue, Elle and other major publications (specifically, Tyra Banks and Susan Holmes for Elle US 1993), but with some modern look updates. For onlookers, the woman is extremely hard to miss. Her bold sense of style, self-evident confidence, and radiant beauty that shines from within, all disrupt whatever street she's strolling and strutting on. People want to know where she's headed, why, and who's lucky enough to have her time. Of course, she is the definition of walking art.

     I wanted to convey the theme through a series of looks that featured the mixing of busy prints and patterns with rich textures, sultry silhouettes and cut outs that reveal just enough, along with statement jewelry and accessories that accent the body impeccably. 

     My team and I chose a downtown area filled with versatile scenery, cute shops and bistros, that visually complimented the attire.  Onlookers gaze at Sophia as she strides in gorgeous shots, some candid and some with intentional strong, emotional deliverance.
