Winter to spring: 5 transeasonal wardrobe must-haves

Jul 31, 2021
We've pulled together our top five transeasonal wardrobe must-haves.

As we head into the last month of winter, warmer days are well and truly on the horizon. But instead of ditching your winter wardrobe transeasonal items like a lightweight cardigan or a breezy day dress. These staples will get you through the end of winter and the start of spring without freezing or overheating. Read on to learn our top five transeasonal wardrobe must-haves:

Quality pair of pants

You can’t go wrong with a pair of black tailored pants. They can be worn all year round and dressed up or down depending on how you style them, making them great for transeasonal dressing when versatility and laying is key. And the good news is, we stock a variety tailored pants on our Marketplace.

The Pencil Pant (pictured on our model below) comes in a variety of colours, including black, dark navy, white and red. We styled these pants with a three-quarter sleeve black top and a colourful shawl – perfect for when the temperature cools down in the evening and you need something stylish to keep you warm. You can pair these pants with just about anything, whether it be a button-up blouse (like this one from Goondiwindi Cotton) or a smart blazer (like this one from Anto Apparel).

Style notes

Pants: Pencil Pant (black)
Top: High-Low Shift Top (black)
Shawl: Lexington Shawl in Neon Leaf
Boots: Tesselli Travis (black)

Lightweight cardigan or shawl

One of the easiest ways to nail transeasonal dressing is to employ a little help from your trusty shawls and cardigans. Gone are the days when these items were considered old-fashioned or frumpy; these days you’ll find racks lined with stylish and bright cardis and shawls that are perfect for laying and seamlessly carrying your wardrobe through the seasons.

Here, we’ve styled a bright and colourful summer dress with the Jersey Waterfall Jacket in hot pink. This lightweight breezy jacket by OPM is perfect for dressing your wardrobe up and down, or even adding a bit of colour! The outfit is completed with a pair of white sneakers from Bueno Shoes, which add a casual flare to the ensemble, and a necklace from Ruby Olive. You can browse more stunning accessories from Ruby Olive here.

Cardigan: Jersey Waterfall Jacket (hot pink)
Shoes: Bueno Marnie – Ice White
Necklace: Genie Split Necklace (navy and hot pink)

If styling with a shawl is more your thing, you’ll love the Lexington Shawl in Blue Floral by Australian women’s brand Adrift. In the picture below, we’ve styled it with the Pencil Pant, High-Low Shift Top and Tesselli XD Odessa boots, but you can mix and match however you please. For example, if you’re big on colour, we’d recommend styling it with our Olivia Dress in dark emerald (pictured below).

Floaty midi dress

Nothing says transeasonal dressing like a floaty midi dress, and we stock a range of them on our Marketplace! We especially love this loose-fitting midi dress by Bamboo Body. We’ve styled it with a pair of black loafers (these are currently sold out but you can find more stylish flat-style shoes here) and a colourful necklace from Ruby Olive. However, if the weather is a bit more breezy, we’d recommend teaming it with a pair of boots (check out these stylish boots from Bueno Shoes) and a denim jacket (like this one from Adrift)

Dress: Olivia Dress (dark emerald)
Shoes: Bueno Mallorca (these are currently sold out but you can find more stylish flat-style shoes here)

Black boots

Boots are the perfect staple for transeasonal dressing. Pair them with your favourite summer dress or shirt and pants combo. In the picture below, we’ve styled the Tesselli Travis boots in black with the Pencil Pant, High-Low Shift Top, Bamboo Cashmere Wool Travel Wrap and Atlantis Pod Necklace by Ruby Olive.
