Icy cold breeze in the morning, slightly warm rays of sunshine at lunch and ‘summer’ sun out in full power by the afternoon…….welcome to Autumn. The most challenging part of dressing in mid-season is the effort and time required to create outfits that will have you covered for three seasons in one day! Especially over on the West Coast, it practically feels like summer can extend right up to the month of June and that’s no exaggeration!
It can be quite the task to step out of the house wearing the correct clothing, lucky for you this weeks’ post is all about creating a tran-seasonal look that will stand the test of the weather and still be incredibly stylish. With three key pieces of clothing including a pair of white distressed jeans, a print tee and longline cardigan you can be sure to nail your trans-seasonal wardrobe.
Start by selecting your favourite pair of distressed jeans, the pair I am wearing is by Bardot. If you’re not a fan of the distressed jeans or prefer to simply opt for a blue or black denim, that will work just as easily. Now, start thinking about your separates and try to keep everything in the same colour palette.
The key to nailing a tran-seasonal look is to ensure that you have two main separates that will work easily into your look. I decided to choose this Stussy grey foiled printed tee, because it’s light enough to wear in the warmer weather and complements the white denim. The added bonus of wearing the print tee is that when it gets too warm you just take off your jacket/cardigan and you have a great second option.
In an attempt to stay within a lighter colour palette, I deliberately chose to wear this cream/beige longline cardigan by Bardot. I still wanted my outfit to feel fresh and light as we are not quite into the winter season just yet. The purpose of wearing a longer cardigan was to be able to stay warm when it’s very cool but that is also easy enough to take off and fit into my bag. However, depending on what pieces you already have in your wardrobe then you might even want to try teaming a denim jacket over a print tee for the same effect.
Finally, let your shoes and bag be the ‘accessories’ of the look as this is all you will need. I chose to go back to my faithful mules instead of sky-high stiletto heels, just as my tan bag is also my favourite choice to complement the different colours of the look. Don’t be afraid to introduce a cross-body bag for some added edge to your look and even swap mules for sneakers as a fresh change. It’s entirely up to you
