Trans-Seasonal Dressing 101

It’s that time of the year when the weather is unpredictable and it feels like winter in the morning and summer in the afternoon. The temperatures can literally rise or fall 15 degrees within a few hours – a nightmare when it comes to dressing appropriately.

This is why your current wardrobe needs to be trans-seasonal. But, how do you do that? Basically, it’s all about having a few key items in your closet and knowing how to combine them. So on that note, ladies, this is the trans-seasonal 101:

1. Get the right jacket

For those low temperatures in the morning and at night time, you need a light jacket that you can throw over your outfit at any time. A trench coat is perfect because it not only suits pretty much every outfit, but it is light enough to carry around during lunch time when it’s warm and sunny. A really good alternative is a leather jacket for the same reasons.

2. Ankle Boots

Even though you’ve lived in slide sandals all summer long and would love to keep wearing those oh-so-comfy shoes during winter, please don’t start wearing them with socks. Instead, get a good pair of ankle boots with a medium heel. They will keep your feet warm – but won’t make you feel too hot on warmer days – and can also be just as comfy as slide sandals.

3. Invest in a good scarf

I cannot stress enough how useful a big cashmere scarf is in trans-seasonal weather. It’s chic, it will keep you warm, it doubles as a blanket, and when it gets too warm you can simply put it in your handbag. Get one in grey, black, or navy blue so you can combine it with most other colours.

4. Layering

This is easily the most important thing to remember for trans-seasonal dressing: It’s all about layering. Wear a summer dress with tights, a cardigan, a trench coat, and that cashmere scarf we were just talking about on your way to work. During your lunch break, leave the scarf and the trench coat on your desk. It’s like two outfits in one.

If you keep these few tips in mind (and carry around an umbrella), the unpredictable weather will never make you feel bad about your outfit choice again.
