How To: Transeasonal Dressing

Fresh mornings and warm afternoons can make it difficult to organise your wardrobe! Make the transition easier with these top tips from our resident fashion expert Sophie Hart

It's become harder and harder to trust a weather forecast so I've pulled together a list of recommendations - place these items at the forefront of your wardrobe for ease of dressing this month. 

The Blazer

It's always handy to have at least one blazer in your cupboard. It will come in handy more than once! You can pair a great blazer with denim shorts, a bassike tee and flats or boots for the weekend. For work, pop it on over a dress or pair it with pants when running out the door in the mornings. They're light and easy so perfect to throw on in the morning and slip off during the day. Zara do some great blazers. 

Ballet Flats

A pair of ballet flats is an absolute investment for your wardrobe and perfect in the transeasonal months. If you're feeling excited, you can nab yourself a few colourful pairs which can jazz up your look a little. I love a pair of ballet flats with shorts and a cute fedora - hey, you can wear these with your blazer! For some fun styles, head to netaporter and search out the latest J-crew styles. 

Cigarette Pants 

Classic item and my recommendation is to ensure they fit perfectly otherwise they are not the most flattering. If you can pull these off, pair them with a blouse and your ballet flats, for a tres chic look. A black pair would also be great with some of this seasons items found at Country Road - the printed Kimono Top and a pair of pointy flats or black heels. My biggest recommendation when purchasing these is do it in store so you get the right fit. 


A great cotton knit will get you through the change of seasons, and will also come in handy during Winter, underneath a big coat. Try charcoals, whites and navy's this season. True to fashion, Basskike have released a great range of knits, otherwise you can try Witchery - they have some great grey pieces just in. 


Love 'em or hate 'em, they're great for this season. Pair them with a nice pair of socks if it's a bit chillier.
