Hot? Cool? In between? We asked Westchester style mavens to recommend terrific transitional pieces that you can wear now right through autumn.
By: Marisa Iallonardo and Laurie Yarnell
1. Sweater by Goddess, $220
“This sweater can be worn four seasons a year. It’s lightweight enough to wear when it’s warm outside, but the long sleeves make it useful when it gets chilly.”
—Marcie Kesten, owner
Contact, Rye Brook
2. Jacket by Sanctuary, $190
“The tipped item jacket can be worn with a tank and shorts on a summer evening, or a turtleneck and jeans as we move into fall.”
—LaVelle Olexa, SVP, Public Relations,
Lord & Taylor
3. Schumacher skirt, $480
“This skirt is seasonless—it can be worn summer, spring, and fall because of the weight of the silk. Thanks to the colors, a woman can wear it in the summer with a crisp Hanro tank and metallic bronze sandals, and then in the fall with a riding boot or suede knee-high boots with a chunky cashmere sweater.
—Lori Land, fashion director
On the One, Mount Kisco
4. Sam Edelman flats, $95
“Bright colors such as orange add a great pop to a light summer wardrobe.
Bold-colored clothes and acccessories can kick-start a dramatic fall look.”
—Meryl Lefkowitz, public relations manager, Bloomingdale’s. White Plains
