Transitional shoes can be tricky. They’re the pariah of footwear - not boots, but not shoes either. We’re sometimes left scratching our heads: “Can I wear this shoe right now? Is it too hot outside? Too cold?” As a result, transitional shoes can fall into fashion’s black hole, lingering in the back of your closet for the rest of eternity. However, when it comes to crafting a smooth sift from winter wear to spring attire, these shoes are the answer! Lately, we’re LOVING Jeffrey Campbell’s Lita shoes/boots. The toe-heavy booties comes in an endless array of colours, with a heel that is thick, comfortable, and every-day appropriate. You can wear your Litas under jeans during the day and with your cutest dresses at night.

While a woman’s wardrobe is not complete without timeless pieces like a black blazer, a white cotton button-down shirt or a little black dress, new classics are staking claims on closet space. As seen on fall catwalks such as Chloe, Prada and The Row, clothes and accessories sporting an animal print are set to become wardrobe staples. Think cheetah and python for easy to wear looks that instantly add interest to the simplest of outfits. Wear a leopard print belt with your classic LBD or wear a snakeskin blazer, if you dare.
