Add in the challenge of dressing a curvy frame and you have yourself one huge fashion nightmare. So how do you face changeable weather, look sleek and sexy all whilst remaining bang on trend? Check out our key style pieces for transitioning seasons below and feel gorgeous whatever the weather.
The Go to Mac
A good mac is hard to find and at their worst they can look like you’re wearing a crumpled carrier bag. But at their best macs and trenches can be chic and form enhancing all whilst being light enough to roll up in your handbag to make sure your prepared for anything the weather can throw at you. Go for quality fabrics that don’t crumple and are easy to store in a hand bag or shopper. We think paying a little more for a good quality jacket is always worthwhile as this is a versatile piece that will see you through the seasons. Look for designs that stop mid-thigh rather than around the waist, this is a much more flattering line for most women and choose a style with a belt or drawstring to allow you to create that flattering waist. Think you can’t look stylish in a storm? Thing again with a gorgeous Mac.
The Fabulous Shawl Scarf
An oversized light knit scarf or shawl is one of the most versatile pieces a girl can own. Use a wrap to ward off the chill or as a cover up to disguise problem arms. It can also be worn loosely around the neck to create a long fluid vertical line that will elongate and slim your body. If you get too hot sling over your handbag or tuck away easily. This is one piece that will make seasonal transitioning a breeze so don’t leave the house without it!
The Easy Wear Cover-Up
Transitional season dressing is all about layering up easy to wear pieces that you can adapt to the conditions. An easy wear jumper or cardigan in a light weight fabric is the perfect layering option for difficult weather days. This is all about picking styles that won’t crease or lose their shape when you are changing up your outfit in the day, so try a thick jersey for a flawless look. Choose dark block colours for a slimming finish and pick V neck and long line styles for a slimming effect.
The weather may be a bit miserable but you don’t have to be with our key wardrobe pieces for changeable weather. So grab a big bag and your umbrella and go rock a transitional look!
