How many times have you heard the word transeasonal over the past two weeks? Probably a lot, and prepare to hear it a whole lot more. That period between one season and the next can be a tricky transition alright, but with a few style tips, it can become a breeze. The key? Layering. We’ve hunted down the hottest pieces to layer and love now and loosen up later – see below for our seven favourite finds that make – yep, you guessed it – transeasonal dressing a doddle.
A sumptuous silk shirt is a style saviour – layer it over a vest and under a cardigan and let it sit free come spring. Pure Collection Relaxed Silk Blouse, £62.50 available at John Lewis
A timeless trench is an effortlessly chic way to keep chill at bay until the sun arrives. We love Jaeger’s long trench coat with its slightly looser fit that, when belted, creates a cool cape shape. Jaeger Long Cotton Trench Coat, £199, available at John Lewis.
Channel the relaxed vibe of L.A with a pair of cropped boyfriend jeans – not only are they super flattering, they’ll work with all your staples from smocks to sweaters. AND/OR Venice Beach Boyfriend Jeans, £89 available at John Lewis
Shorts are still around for spring, but you can work them now, too – just add a pair of opaques and a chunky knit. Reiss Lana Plisse Shorts, £110 available at John Lewis
Bite back at the breeze with a light knit that’s cosy enough to curl up in without ensuing a sweat – try pairing with chinos and flats for a downtown preppy look. hush Mavis Stripe Jumper, £79 available at John Lewis
When it’s too cold for sandals but you’re bored of your boots, a pair of peep-toe booties become the perfect transeasonal piece – we love Mint Velvet’s peep toe sock boots for easy day-to-night edge. Mint Velvet Dee Peep Toe Sock Boots, £139 available at John Lewis
Adding a pop of crayola colour will keep your wardrobe feeling fresh. Jaeger’s cool cobalt and leopard print scarf is the perfect way to bring a spring zing to your style until the new season arrives – plus, it doubles up as a wear-forever wrap. 7.
