7 Transitional Items Your Closet Needs This Year

Keeping your outfits fresh season on season isn’t always easy, even for the most discerning trendsetter. It’s time to start making your closet work harder for you, and opting for pieces that work fluidly season to season. Check out our top picks to put together the perfect transitional wardrobe this year.

1. A Soft Knit

A knit top, dress, or skirt will take you from the warmer autumn months right into the depth of winter by keeping you snug yet stylish. Wear on its own if it has long sleeves or layer a sleeveless vest over a crisp white shirt for a cool Gossip Girl aesthetic.

2. Sweatpants

The epitome of leisurewear turned top of the trends, sweatpants are a style staple for 2021. Pair with a longline crop top and an oversized jacket. Add some fresh-out-the-box white sneakers and a cross-body bag and you’re good to go!

3. A Pair Of Leather Shorts

Leather shorts are having a real moment and can be paired with just about anything for a smart-casual vibe. In the cold winter months wear with tights and some biker boots or if you’re feeling brave opt for bare legs with over the knee heeled boots and a chunky turtleneck sweater.

Play around with different styles, if you love high-waisted pants then paper bag shorts should be your go-to, whereas long Bermuda shorts are great for those days you head straight from the office to the bar.

4. Some Chunky Boots

First seen this season on the runways of Prada and Fendi, chunky boots are super easy to wear – plus they’ll save your feet from running around in heels! Wear with a tiny minidress for a night on the town or under mom jeans for a coffee outing.

5. A Grandad Blazer

An oversize grandad blazer will be the hardest working item in your closet in the colder seasons. Great to finish off any outfit, be it casual or super elegant. If you’re looking to smarten up a lazy day outfit it’s perfect thrown on over a tracksuit, yet just as at home when paired with black pants or a pencil skirt. Plus it will double up as a coat in the milder months such as autumn and spring so you’ll really be getting bang for your buck.

6. A Slip Dress

Silky, slinky, sexy slip dresses are back from the nineties with a bang. Channel your inner Rachel Green and wear a short and sweet style over a plain white tee in the autumn months. For winter opt for a longer version and dress up with some strappy court shoes and a sleek leather jacket for Christmas parties.

7. Drip In Jewels

Even wrapped up in the biggest of teddy bear coats, you can still make a splash with jewelry. Pile on several gold chains and large signet-style rings for maximum impact. The trend this year is definitely more is more so don’t be afraid to be a little blingtastic!
