The weather outside is cold, but your favorite stores are already selling spring clothes.
Many of us are tempted to buy those items now because you're probably sick of all your sweaters and turtlenecks.
The editors at Marie Claire magazine have found some amazing outfits you can wear now and wear again in the spring. Editor-in-Chief Lesley Jane Seymour shares tips and her favorite looks with The Early Show's Hannah Storm.
Seymour says the rule about transitional clothing is there are no rules. Wear white, floral and different fabrics all year long. Pair heavy fabrics with light ones — it's all about personal style.
Look No. 1: White Jeans
Go ahead and wear white jeans all year long. In the winter, layer a vest and oxford shirt. In the spring, ditch the layers and pair jeans with a chiffon blouse or tank top and embellished sandals. Don't forget to accessorize!
Grand Total: $172.49
Grand Total: $390
The difference: Fabric is key. The Paper denim & cloth jeans are a more tailored fit.
Look No. 2: Floral Skirt
Seymour says floral will continue to be a big trend this spring. You can wear a floral skirt with a darker sweater or jacket and dark shoes. In the spring, wear with wedges and a pretty tank top. Don't forget to accessorize with a belt.
Grand Total: $112.80
Grand Total: $428
The difference: Here again it's the fabric and fit. The Escada Sport skirt is silk while the splurge is made of a cotton blend.
Look No. 3: Shirt Dress
The shirt dress is a big "it" item this coming season. It is a style that looks great on all figures. Wear it with boots and a turtleneck. In the spring, trade the boots in for open-toe shoes and take off the turtleneck.
Grand total: $147.90
Grand total: $356.62
The difference: Here again fabric is the big difference. The Chaiken dress is made from a heavy twill fabric while the steal is a cotton blend.
