Must Have Transitional Pieces for your Wardrobe
And just as quickly as it arrived, August begins to come to a close, turning us towards thoughtful layers and transitional pieces that will stand the season’s change. These crucial staples not only inspire us to get the most out of our cherished lightweight summer pieces but bring a visual interest that we dearly miss in the hottest months of the year. We’ve pulled our favourite transitional pieces — textures and colours with the early elegance of fall, so you can get the most out of your summer wardrobe.
Light Weight Knits
There is something special about the lightweight knit, marrying effortless style with thoughtful layering, mixing weights and textures of fabric that are the key to transitional dressing. Pairing this lightweight, airy Wool and Cotton-Blend Lurex Stripe Cape by Fabiana Filippi with this beautiful Cotton Gabardine Trouser by Forte Forte will be the perfect mix of luxe fall texture and breezy summer fabrication to help you layer like a pro.
Neutral Colour Pallets
Keeping your looks cohesive and elevated in-between seasons can be a challenge, as the season’s colour pallet starts to skew from bright, vibrant prints of summer to deep, rich tones of fall. As you navigate the perfect pallet, try mixing in light neutrals in luxurious creams, beiges, and whites using tones that fuse your look together flawlessly. Add the perfect accessories in rich sunlit gold, like Jenny Bird’s Hidden Hearts hoops and bangle for a subtle nod to the golden hour of summer. Top off this lightweight look with the Flat Brim Paper Braid Hat by Jeanne Simmons and the versatile Les Second Mini Tote by Frame, completing a look that is ready for a weekend getaway, a patio dinner and everything in between.
Breezy Linen Shirts
Enter the most polished fabric in your wardrobe, linen. Linen is your closet hero when dressing between the warm air of summer and the cool, flowing breeze of fall, bringing an effortlessly seasonless charm. Find your sense of summer play with the Elieen Linen Shirt by Frank & Eileen, paired with the Spello Wool Pleated Trouser by Fabiana Filippi for easy dressing. Though the luxurious fabrics feel elevated, this casual styled pant adds a subtle hint of sophistication while still showing an effortless look. The feminine detailing of the shirt offers classic style that is mirrored in the beautiful Ophelia Heart Stud Earring and Bobbi Necklace by Jenny Bird, showing a sense of play without sacrificing style. Finish off the look with the Ines Large Tote by Fabiana Fillipi, that will bring you through to September without a second thought.
