Whether you’re in one place, heading to the next or buying into the current season, today we are extremely aware of the most testing periods of fashion. We all love the cosy weather that’s up ahead of us and, if you’re stuck deciding on what to wear for that Sunday brunch with your friends, I have the fix for you.
When your wardrobe is filled with only work clothes or weekend clothes, you tend to feel like you’re wearing the same things repeatedly. It might seem easy to dress up for a night out, as day looks are harder to put together during this weather. But guess what? This transitional season is perfect to pull out those statement jackets, pullovers or even waistcoats.
Here are two ways to style some existing pieces in your wardrobe for a hot cuppa of coffee or a quick breakfast run this month.
The Casual look:
As work wear becomes more casual and casual wear gets smarter, it becomes easier to interchange the two. A versatile wardrobe can take your casual look a notch above with a statement jacket or even a drawstring bag. For this look, I have paired a blue turtleneck with a felt detailed denim jacket, straight cut denim, brown sneakers and, a drawstring bag.
Rather than seeing this as a time of styling desolation, try to view this puzzling scenario as a positive – an opportunity to experiment, plan ahead, redefine your personal style and pick out/try on those pieces that really catch your eye.
The Formal look:
Let’s face it, wearing a suit all day, every day can be a bit tiring. Mixing up your workwear with a few classic pieces in your wardrobe can give you a more transitional look. In this look, I have paired a white button-down full sleeve shirt with a plaid waistcoat, slim fit denim, a black tie and, tan brown perforated oxfords. To complete the look, I went ahead and rolled up the bottom of my denim just to give the look a more casual and outgoing vibe.
