Own Trans-Season with these AW17 Style Saviours!
Here we go again. That funny period between summer and autumn, when the weatherman may as well throw darts at a board of meteorological conditions, such are his chances of correctly
guessing predicting it. Dress for summer, and you can be damn sure those clouds are gonna gather the second you’re too far from the house to turn back round. For winter? And you just know that Sun’s gonna shine like an overplayed Take That song. So WTH do you do?
Two words: trans-season wardrobe (or is that three?). Either way, allow us to present four just-in styles that’ll see you through from summer-to-autumn and straight onto winter. Assuming you’re ok to pack a brolly, some sunglasses, possibly a bottle of sun lotion… and definitely an inflatable lifeboat. English weather, eh?
Red Strappy Culotte Jumpsuit
Not only is the jumpsuit a Monday morning godsend (we’re talking min effort, max effect… and at leat one extra hit of the snooze button!), but a deceivingly versatile style, too.
Indian summer? Blind optimism aside, simply throw it on with sneaks and a pair of fishnet socks. Job done. As the season cools, start by layering a block colour tee underneath, later a boxy sweater overtop, and eventually both a tee underneath and a sweater overtop.
Black Leopard Peg Leg Trousers
Being able to layer up an item of clothing is obviously important in the lead up to the colder seasons, but brisk winds and bitter temperatures aren’t the only things awaiting us at the other end of autumn. These next few months are also a countdown to the party season, and your wardrobe better be ready for it!
Which brings us neatly onto these black leopard print trousers. Sitting high on the waist for a flatter-all fit, the awk-length style works just as well as with a crop top and trainers, as it does with heels and a statement blouse once those post-work invites start doing the rounds. Trans-season in a nutshell.
Rose Mesh Long Sleeve Bodysuit
Another 90’s fave that went AWOL far too long, when it comes to mesh, it’s a case of making up for lost time! So it’s just as well the semi-sheer fabric’s such an easy win when it comes to trans-season.
For the next couple of weeks, it’s simple a case of tucking this rose-patterned bodysuit into denim. Perhaps a leather jacket on top. But as winter slowly arrives (and as any GoT fans out there will know, it might be painfully slow, but it will!), this mesh bodysuit is a layering dream, opening up all-new levels of warmth. Slip it under your jumpsuit, your slip dress or even a cami – its works just as well with all three.
Black Two-Stripe Tights
As far as trans-season’s concerned, these black two-stripe tights are an absolute style-staple. No. Questions. Asked. Not only do they add a so-now spin to skirts, dresses and playsuits alike, but you’ll get at least another couple o’ wears out of those frill hem shorts you definitely bought too late into summer.
