5 Trans-seasonal Pieces To Keep In Your Forever Wardrobe
Whether the spring is in full swing where you are at or the temperature is falling, it is that time of the year again where the weather can swing wildly from one day to another (and sometimes between morning and afternoon). For times like these, the question of what to wear has got to be amongst the worst. But, fret not! We’ve got the answers to all your fashion problems.
Having a few smart pieces that layer well and work seamlessly with your edit is great for unpredictable weather. Plus, it is better for our conscience as trans-season fashion helps us shrink our wardrobe by having fewer but more useful pieces. Below we have curated a list of five key pieces that every girl needs to have in her trans-seasonal wardrobe. Shop these online and give your collection a mid-season upgrade.
We all are very well aware of how practical and versatile the blazer is – work appropriate, date appropriate and the list goes on! Over the years, it has been modified very well with some excellent tailoring and classic cuts. This season, blazers are all about longlines and loose fits. They are more lightweight than the thick coats but warmer than a cardigan, making them the ultimate trans-season pieces to add to your edit. Simply team it a white tee, your favorite denim and this season’s must-have Birkenstock sandals, to create a look that is understated yet head-turning.
A Classic Shirt Dress
An obvious trans-seasonal choice, shirt dresses have the potential to stay. No matter what occasion you’re dressing for, consider these classic pieces a sartorial saviour, thanks to their clever blend of practicality, prettiness and polish. If unsure, opt for a maxi style that subtly cinches the waist while offering an ultra-flattering and chic silhouette. During the hotter months, wear it with luxe leather sandals and a bamboo basket bag for an elegant look, and when the temperature drops, layer over with a soft knitted cardigan and tall boots.
Boasting just as much wearability and versatility as jeans but with a little added chicness, wide-leg pants are the ultimate wardrobe essentials you never knew you needed in your forever collection. Styled correctly, these straight-legged bottoms are leg-lengthening and body-sculpting and can elevate your look within a snap! Just be sure to opt for a pair that fits perfectly at the waist. To offset the exaggerated proportions, balance the look by teaming these with a second-skin sweater, or if you love to make a statement, accentuate it with a billowing blouse, either tucked in or out.
A Second-skin Knit
You’d be thinking there’s no way knits could slot into your off-duty closet – but with light, skin-fit knits, you can unlock a whole load of options and incorporate these versatile pieces into your everyday wardrobe. Far from looking overly weighted like your classic cable knits, the allure of these understated pieces is their featherweight, making them non-negotiable must-haves for when it comes to contemporary winter dressing. For a chic low-key look, pair it with a slip silk dress or a skirt and a baguette bag.
