5 Tips for Transeasonal Dressing

After a week of rain in Sydney all illusions of a long summer are gone. The icy feel of Autumn greets me every morning as I leave the house in darkness (losing Daylight Savings is the worst!) So what should I wear when it's neither hot or cold and the weather forecast is as accurate as a horoscope? For everyone in the Northern Hemisphere I imagine this is a problem too, except you lucky folk are feeling the beginning of sunnier days (not jealous, not jealous)
I've put together a little list of my best tips for decoding the changing weather and dressing your best between seasons:

1.Leather
Leather shell tops or skirts are great to add some extra warmth without having to layer up or throw on the dreaded jeans and sweater combo. A pair of cut out booties helps cover a bit more skin and just generally look 'bangin'


Leather and shorts



2. Knee High Boots
A great investment piece not just for over 40's! Wear them to death on rainy days, because if your feet are dry and warm, nothing can dampen your spirits. A shirt dress looks fab and casual with a tall leather pair but power to the boho babes who can rock some sexy brown boots! The summery bag is for a little reminder of what we're missing ;)

3. Blazers
Blazers should be your top wardrobe staple anyway, but they really shine when the weather can't make up it's mind. Light enough to throw over your shoulders, but covers enough to keep out the wind AND at home in the work place and bars! Buy one in every colour, yes, every colour!

4. Pencil Skirts
Not just for work, longer hem lines are on trend this season and can cover your wind chilled pins. Especially good for those of us who quit shaving as soon as March ends (Who me?!) I like to pair mine back with simple t-shirts and heels to give it a more 'I wake up like this' fashionista vibe.

5. Chiffon Shirts
Sheer and light weight yet those long sleeves are perfect for rolling up when the humidity hits! I could own a hundred of these (and one day I probably will) because they go with everything from denim shorts to patterned minis. Team with your cutest brogues or loafers and a hat (40% of your body heat is lost through your head!) for a warm/cool weekend get up.
