I know what you're thinking...no way can you survive that tricky, in between Seasons time in style with just five, easy pieces?! But it's true! Trust us, we've got over 18+ years experience of styling women and these are the foundation pieces for your wardrobe that will make getting dressed in the morning that much easier!
A little hint: anytime you are investing in a new garment, consider how it will work back in your wardrobe. We always like to show our clients at least three or four ways they can wear their new piece! We've chosen these five wardrobe heroes for their versatility and timeless style, so their a great place to start if you are building up your wardrobe!
Here's how to navigate trans-seasonal dressing like a pro:
1. The Shirtmaker Dress
Like every piece in this list, the shirtmaker dress is timeless and versatile. Everyone can pull off this style too! A long sleeve shirtmaker in cotton or silk means that you can wear it in Winter with on-trend boots and a denim jacket. As the weather heats up, roll up the sleeves, wear the collar open and style with chic flats. P.S. prints can be a great way to add a fresh new feel to your style - just be conscious of the colour palette! Shop our Floral Print Shirtmaker.
2. The Mid Weight Jacket
2021 has been the year of the Trench Coat Renaissance! An investment piece, the classic beige trench instantly adds a sophisticated feel to any outfit. Whether you're in a LBD, linen pant suit or just your basic jeans and a tee, throw on your coat and you will feel (and look) like you're ready for the streets of Paris! When the sun comes out, drape it loosely over your shoulders - c'est trés chic. Shop our Classic Beige Trench.
3. The Boyfriend White Shirt
We have lots to thank Audrey for, the oversized white shirt being one of them. Another classic that is particularly on trend at the moment, the boyfriend white shirt not only offers comfort but also that cool-girl vibe we all want to pull off. Buy one in cotton or linen so that you can wear it at the end of Winter with your jeans and sneakers, but then as we hit high Summer it will be gorgeous with casual linen pants at the beach! Shop our Classic Relaxed White Shirt.
4. Wide Leg Pants
The wider leg silhouette is a cut that feels fresh and decidedly modern. This is a great trans-seasonal piece since you don't have to worry about how to style it with boots! Sounds like a trivial thing, but the versatility of a wide leg means you can style it with ankle boots, sneakers, heels (such a great look!) or ballet flats. You can easily tuck in your sweater or cotton tee, but we really love playing with proportions with a wide leg pant. Try styling your oversized white shirt loosely over the pants and wearing wedges for added height. Shop our Wide Leg Cotton Trouser.
5. Relaxed Tailoring
Be it the everyday suit, a softly tailored sports jacket or high waisted trousers, relaxed tailoring is essential for that put-together look we're all after. Polished, perfectly tailored pieces are a trans-seasonal staple as they allow you to add a twist to your go-to garments. Your leather pants at night get a preppy twist styled back with a sleek, linen blazer. That slouchy cotton sweater will look instantly edgy when you do a french tuck into your tailored check trousers! Not only can you style a classic, tailored jacket or pant in between seasons, but these pieces will also seamlessly transition from your work to weekend wardrobe. Shop our Relaxed Tailored Pieces.
