Little did Alessandra Ambrosio know that when she was out grabbing coffee in LA, she was simultaneously reminding us of the importance of lightness. Case in point: the Victoria's Secret Angel showed off how to colorblock softer Spring colors in the Winter. The model started off her daytime ensemble with a beige batwing turtleneck sweater, then styled it with a pair of rose-colored skinny corduroys. She then added just the right amount of camel via her Rag & Bone Harrow booties ($495). A matching beige leather fringe bag, oversize brown sunglasses, and a few gold baubles made for a shiny finish. We know Spring isn't here (yet), but why not start prepping by experimenting with lighter staples now?
