Marcellas Reynolds working with Midnight Velvet Fashion Stylist

You may think by the title of this article, The Fifth Season, that I may have lost my mind! No, I have not!

In fashion there are these gray areas between Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter that I affectionately call “Fifth Season.” You know, how high end designers show Cruise Collections between Spring & Summer? Well that is what I call a Fifth Season! It’s the areas where the weather is changing & with it comes the need to update your wardrobe.

 

Fifth Seasons can be tough! Especially Summer into Fall. You leave the house for work in 90 degree heat & come home after & it’s 50! Now I know Summer just got here… And we are not ready to commit to thinking about cooler weather but a few cute, cool, key pieces will get you really excited about adding more!

 

Let’s talk layering. The easiest way to handle Summer into Fall is by adding chic layers to your rotation. Take a look at our Nisha Melange sweater. The colors work perfectly with your Summer palette & it’s so cute & cozy you’ll want to wear it right now! Pair it with jeans & a t-shirt for a cool late summer night. Or over trousers & our Breezy Blouse for work when the air conditioning is blasting!
And speaking of layering my FAVE MUST HAVE piece is our gorgeous lipstick red trench! What a remix on a classic by giving it an amazing jolt of color in our bold, sexy red! It goes with everything! In our new video I say “the trench is the perfect transitional coat & the perfect topper when you don’t know what to wear!”

Ladies do you have a favorite transitional or “Fifth Season” piece that you absolutely love? Tell me how you wear it in the comments section below! For Midnight Velvet I’m Marcellas Reynolds, your personal stylist.
