Every year, when summer starts to fade, I found myself staring at my closet thinking to myself “I have nothing to wear now”… such a cliché, I know, but isn´t this the same conflict most girls have?
When it comes to clothes, I usually think about the present, if I like something that will look amazing on that warm sunny day I would buy it without thinking. Its like an instant reflect I guess, but when it comes to making the seasonal transition I end up feeling unprepared for the cool days and therefore, I have to go shopping & buy things that we´ll be perfect for that cold day. Now that I come to think about it, it’s a very odd vicious cycle, but how can we make the best out of our summer wardrobe and avoid turning it into a useless bunch of clothes for the next 6 months?
While drinking my morning cup of tea and looking at all the online shops and Pinterest boards, I thought, maybe, if I bought a couple of key pieces, I could still used them even in the coldest months. Its all about thinking ahead and building a basic collection of “transition” pieces that will come handy when braving the weather.
For this post, I chose two of my favourite 2014 trends and turned them into “transition” pieces that can easily be used on warm / cold days. Starting with the bomber jacket (which always reminds me of going to the cinema with friends in Junior High school for some reason), which is one of my all time favourites and that are having a huge comeback right now! They are so informal but if they can work amazing as the chic element of a serious outfit. You can see how much potential the bomber jacket on this picture, were I teamed this green one with a super feminine and casual outfit and then it goes the opposite way with a more winter friendly but chic set. If you like what you see, I think the best bomber jacket will be waiting for you at a vintage/thrift store but I take it you will see them everywhere!
Our second “transition” piece is the summer favourite, tribal print. These cool prints will stretch their way into the fall trends this year so please don´t think on storing that festival tribal t-shirt! Just add a few cosy elements such as a cute beanie and a large kimono. When the temperatures drop, the tribal t-shirt will look awesome with black jeans, hiking boots and a big fluffy parka.
So there you go, hope you find these tips handy and face the weather transition like a pro, with a lot of style but most importantly, feeling good!
