Between-seasons outfit ideas are tough. Your fall and winter clothes have been in rotation for months, but it's literally still January so you can't really think about shopping spring yet, even if it's beginning to filter into stores. Consider working citrus into your mid-winter looks suggests La Garçonne, which has published an editorial with some truly fresh ideas hinged on seasonal produce. Below, find four ways to introduce lemons, limes, and oranges into your day-to-day look.
Vertical Lime In Trouser Pocket
Select a lime with a long body and a fat center. Pull on your pants, and fasten them closed. Take the lime by it's longer sides and nestle it into a side pocket vertically for a surprising dash of color and nonconformist hip widening.
An orange pairs beautifully with blush pink and yellow-tinged camel brown. Settle the bottom third of the fruit into a front-facing pocket, then stand very, very still.
Classic Produce Bag
La Garçonne reminds us you can't go wrong with a classic. Relive grocery-shopping nostalgia with throwback produce bag, which looks great with a mix of lemons and limes. This versatile accessory choice looks great for day, and irreverent-cool for night.
Back 'Pit Crook
Elevate loungewear with a lime nestled into the back crook of your armpit. Enter a butterfly stretch and have a friend nestle the fruit into the valley between your back and upper arm. Voila: winter outfit boredom blues, busted.
