Top 6 tips on how to dress between seasons
Posted on April 05 2018
Have you mastered transitional dressing yet? No, neither have we, so we've put together some tips that are easy to implement and they really work! With South Africa's mild climate, between season dressing is easier to achieve than in countries with big temperature fluctuations as the seasons battle for centre stage. What we're trying to achieve with transitional dressing is making sure we don't break into a sweaty meltdown in the middle of the day, by gently easing ourselves into winter, whilst still looking stylish. Easy, right?
Try one of our top 6 tips to make between season dressing a little more seamless...
10% of your outfit should be from the coming season, for example a leather jacket or pair of winter boots with your usual summer ensemble. Try and wear your dresses until the bitter cold end and warm them up with one winter piece.
Throw on a scarf that can double up as a wrap. A full scarf looks particularly good with jeans, a t-shirt and a pair of sneakers but can be thrown over anything as long as the neckline underneath is simple.
Add some layers you can peel off as the day warms up. Play with different lengths and textures and pair with pumps to keep the look light.
The skinny shirt under a slip dress is a familiar look from the 90's and it's back! Keep one item plain and pair with loafers or sneakers.
The kimono has great, full-length coverage and creates a sense of wrapped up warmth or breezy freedom as the mercury shifts.
Pack a shoe alternative in your bag to make sure that you're not left out in the cold. If you're wearing boots, pack some pumps, if you're wearing brogues, pack sandals. Browse our between season shoes by filtering for pumps, loafers, sneakers, moccasins and ankle boots.
