Style to Steal: 3 Layered Looks for a Rainy Weekend

It's nice right now, but the forecast calls for gloom. Stay cozy in these easy outfits we spotted on Washington style bloggers.

Boo, your fun date plans got rained out. Curl up on the couch with Netflix and a big bowl of popcorn instead. Tania of What Would a Nerd Wear has a perfect look for the occasion. Pair a loose lace dress and a pretty necklace with high socks, a blanket sweater (more of those here), and classic riding boots. Voilà! Consider yourself ready for cuddling.

Calypso St. Barth lace sheath dress, $359; Ralph Lauren cashmere wrap sweater, $636; Elva Fields Bursting With Pride necklace, $168; Halogen riding boot, $219.95; Rabens Saloner socks, $21

We totally dig the irreverent pajama look E of District of Chic is pulling off right here. If you’re brave enough to pull off palazzo pants, pair ’em with an easy graphic tee and some ’80s-inspired accessories, and polish everything off with an loose-fitting boyfriend blazer. Now you’re ready to head to brunch at the cool new spot in Shaw you keep meaning to check out.

Elizabeth and James wide-leg pants, $345; Jack Wills wool blazer, $328; Juicy Couture T-shirt, $65; ASOS lion-head belt, $26.86; Delia’s ten-piece bracelet set, $12.50; Steve Madden suede slipper, $119.95.

Stay warm while you catch a movie ( Hunger Games, anyone?) in light layers à la Caitlin of Style Within Reach. Mix spring staples like a sleeveless vest with the fur collar you wore all winter, then slip on ankle booties–a heel is key for keeping your maxi skirt from dragging through the puddles–so your toes stay warm.

Wallis Maxi skirt, $61; T by Alexander Wang long-sleeved tee, $81; Sam Edelman booties, $160 at Singer22; Victoria’s Secret faux-fur collar, $19.99; Old Navy twill vest, $29.99; Michael Kors gold watch, $180.
