Fashion, like most essentials in this decade, is now a global affair. The days of waiting weeks for stores to adapt to new fashions and the delay of information in regards to fashion designer trends across country lines are no longer. This environment sets up the perfect conditions to evolve your wardrobe between seasons. As it may be winter in one hemisphere and summer in the other, your wardrobe can withstand these seasonal changes, to fit right in-between.
The Fashion In The City team compiled a list of essential Fall and Winter pieces that everyone should have in their wardrobes, that will go well with Spring trends.

Wide-brim hats are a stylish addition to any outfit. Good tactics to use these hats season to season, is to own them in neutral, muted colors. Tan, camel, light rose, and black are your best buys to add them to elevate any outfit year-round. Minimalism is everything!

A comfy sweater is a good carry-on item for every season. A cashmere sweater, though an investment, lasts longer than the average sweater and becomes softer with each wash. When you catch a breeze during the Spring and Summer seasons, slip on a nice sweater; not only will it keep you warm, but it will also add an extra flair to your outfit.
Boots and Booties

Although we usually picture boots in a Fall and Winter setting, the combination of a sun dress and a nice pair of boots is a lovely combination. Combining traditionally feminine pieces with sleek boots or a heavy pair of booties creates an outfit with an edge. For an extra flair, play with bold-colored boots such as reds, blues, and purples, and materials such as velvet and vinyl.

The defining piece of most outfits: a jacket. It might seem counterintuitive to wear a jacket during those warmer months, however there are plenty of styles that utilize lighter fabrics and more breathable designs. A good jacket can elevate any simple look, whether you wear it as usual, drape it over your shoulders, or just tie it around your waist.
