Every girl needs a few key pieces for transitioning into a new season. Whether you’re transitioning your wardrobe from winter to spring or summer to autumn, these few pieces can be really helpful in the “in-between” seasons.
1. Denim Jacket
I don’t know why I’ve held off on this trend for so many years. While planning my packing list for my trip to Los Angeles, I decided I needed to invest in one. I’ve had SO much wear out of mine since then (take a look at this post). It looks so great paired with a maxi dress, playsuits, white denim jeans and pretty much everything you currently have sitting in your wardrobe. One of my favourite ways to wear a denim jacket is with a formal cocktail dress because I think it’s a gorgeous way to style a “smart casual” look. I absolutely love this one and this one. Honestly, If you take nothing else from this post, be sure to add a denim jacket to your wardrobe!
2. White distressed jeans
I love a great pair of white denim jeans all year round but they really are a great way of freshening up your wardrobe during a change of season. White is such a versatile colour and it is so easy to mix with every other colour under the sun. When you don’t feel like thinking too hard about what to wear, grab a crisp white shirt and your pair of white denim jeans and you’ll be dressed to the nines without much effort at all.
3. A great pair of neutral heels
A nude pair of heels is an absolute essential in my wardrobe. In fact, the bulk of my shoes (flip flops included) are a nude shade. Again, this makes them incredibly versatile and I know that I can simply reach into my wardrobe and grab a pair of shoes that won’t clash with my outfit. I simply LOVE these shoes. They look so chic paired with anything from a bridesmaid dress right down to a pair of shorts.
4. A bold red lipstick
A red lipstick is another way of giving your wardrobe a quick refresh and it’s the quickest, most cost-effective transitional wardrobe tip that I have for you today. My two favourite red lipsticks are this Elizabeth Arden one and Ruby Woo by MAC. They’re always a crowd pleaser and for good reason – they’re gorgeous!
