The fashion world calls it resort wear, but here in Texas we call it year-round wear. Thanks to our mild, southern climate, these flowing, layerable, colorful pieces that transition from winter to spring to summer aren’t relegated to exotic locations. They are what to wear right here at home. Especially right now.
