How to shop for transitional pieces

How to shop for transitional pieces


The days are short again and the temperature has certainly dropped here in London. Luckily, there's still plenty of fun to be had when it comes to fashion and styling in the winter months. Although I still like to wear my floral prints in the autumn and winter, styled with layers, jackets and tights, the clothes I start to buy in the autumn are much more seasonal. Read on for my top tips for shopping for transitional clothing.

Sticking to your style


As you may already know, I am much more of a summer fashion girl, so I love my floral prints and that doesn't stop in the winter. I recently received a Gucci floral print bag as a birthday present (blog post coming soon) and I've been wearing it with pretty much everything! Similarly, this red dress from Boohoo is feminine and floral but the sleeves mean that I can still wear it this time of year. It's important to stick to your own style, and if chunky layers aren't for you then don't invest in them.

Add to your current wardrobe


If you love a certain summer dress, why not keep wearing it in the winter but paired with clear tights and a nice jacket? Rather than splashing out on new winter clothes, I definitely believe in getting the most out of your clothes, so I love to add to my wardrobe and buy pieces such as jumpers and jackets that I can pair with my summer clothes.

Colours and fabrics


I still like to keep my wardrobe bright in the winter months, so you'll still see me in red dresses and pink coats. So stick to what you like and just introduce pieces that will help your wardrobe transition. This could include cardigans, boots and even gloves.
