More wardrobe staples that you could wear all year round. Wear the skirt with the crisp white shirt or swop that for a silk top and strappy sandals on a warm day. Add a tweed jacket and flat pumps if it’s colder outside.
You could also wear a shirt with a straight pair of trousers and accessorise with a brightly coloured bag or earrings.
You knew that was coming, didn’t you? Nothing beats them for comfort in my book! But seriously leggings are a great option under a dress if it’s likely to get hot later in the day. Simply remove the leggings and swop from a pump to a sandal.
My favourites for trans-seasonal weather are the denim jacket and the classic trenchcoat, but depending on your style, you could also consider a leather jacket, either classic cut or biker style.
Or how about a blazer which will give an extra layer without too much extra warmth. You could roll or push the sleeves up too.
Another option is to tie a knit or denim jacket around your waist.
I don’t need to tell you how versatile scarves are, but a great tip is to make sure the weight of your scarf complements the rest of your outfit. So, don’t wear a huge wool scarf with a silky t-shirt. That said, don’t be afraid to add contrast and texture by layering different fabrics such as cotton, silk, or soft wool.
There is plenty of choice for a versatile, trans-seasonal outfit. Save your pennies even further by considering pre-loved and vintage finds in charity shops and do your bit for the environment by seeking out organic and Fair Trade cotton or eco-friendly fabrics like hemp or bamboo – the latter being particularly useful for us menopausal ladies which is highly breathable and four times more absorbent than cotton.
