All change for the new season! It’s always a bit tricky trying to figure out how to dress for this time of year, what with the chilly mornings and scorching afternoons.

The trick is to layer, and Elena is doing it right. Pair a knit or of-the-moment sweatshirt over cut-off denim shorts, and pop a trench coat on top. Follow Elena’s lead with flat knee- or thigh-high flat boots for when the weather gets cooler, opt for ankle versions, or go all-the-way casual with a pair of sleek sneakers. See below for some more inspiration for getting Elena’s look.
