It’s the day before spring begins and we’re still not 100 percent convinced. We’ve had some deliciously warm days and shockingly cold ones and today is right there in between. It’s March, what do you expect? No wonder this fashion report is all over the weather map – are we supposed to bundle up in boots or to dance into spring in our ballet flats – maybe we should just keep it casual in sneakers until we’re absolutely sure?

But whatever your thermometer is telling you, one thing is for certain and everyone agrees – leggings are hot! You can also do the slimmest fitting jeans you can find. It’s all good and it’s all very leg-conscious. And it’s not just the ladies; in Istanbul men are pretty darn fashionable as well.  Today, wintery super-slim pants in black and denim and black denim and cozy prints were all out on the street in tony Nisantisi. A few women were sporting the tutti-frutti, fresh-and-cutie colors of spring. I couldn’t help but think of honeydew and cantaloupe and lemon icies, it’s just that it feels a little too cold for all that.

Luckily, we have plenty of options – jeans that keep you in the slim, leggings that give you a leg up and footwear for whatever crazy March throws at you. April is just around the corner and this being Istanbul can stylish rain boots ranging from Hunters all the way down to your friendly-neighborhood-bargain galoshes (here are mine that I got for 20TL) be far behind? Nope, and don’t forget your umbrella.
