5 transition pieces to include in your wardrobe

5 transition pieces to include in your wardrobe

Whether you’re in the northern or southern hemispheres, you’re more likely than not going through a “transition” season – ie autumn or spring – which means the weather can be sunny and warm one day, then dip in temperatures the next (or even change in a single day – I’m looking at you, Melbourne!). For these seasons, it’s essential to have some pieces in your wardrobe that can deal with these fluctuations in temperatures, and that can easily be worn for the next change in weather.

TRENCH COAT

This is a classic piece that can take you from autumn through to winter, and makes prettu much any outfit look polished. Wear it over lighter layers if the weather is still pleasant, and then over heavier items to keep you warm on the commute to work (or the park). You could even button it up all the way and wear it as a dress with a pair of killer heels.

OFF-SHOULDER TOP

The off-shoulder trend shows no sign of abating, but to make it work in the transition months go with an off-shoulder blouse with longer sleeves so even if your shoulders get a little cold, your arms won’t! You could wear it with shorts when the weather’s warm, and then with jeans when it gets cooler. Throw the trench coat over your shoulders (don’t put your arms in the sleeves – wear the jacket like a cape!) when the weather turns cold.

DENIM SHORTS

Typically considered a summer staple, denim shorts are also excellent for autumn (when the days are still humid) and spring (when the weather starts warming up). Wear the shorts with longer sleeves, or layer with a light parka or even a blazer when the temperatures are cooler. On-trend lace ups and ankle boots are great footwear options with denim shorts for those cool days.

CHAMBRAY SHIRT

We’ve talked before about how versatile a chambray shirt is, and it is a perfect piece for when the weather transitions. It’s great as a piece on its own with virtually any pair of bottoms; layer it over a turtleneck, or under a chunky knit in winter.

STRIPED SHIRT

An essential piece in anyone’s wardrobe at any time of the year, the a longer-sleeved striped top is a great layering piece under the chambray shirt. You could also pop a white button up underneath the shirt, and it looks great with the trench coat as well as a duster cardigan.

Hopefully these pieces will help you keep stylish as the weather changes! Leave a comment and let us know – what else would you include in your transition wardrobe?
