A new season is almost upon us, but before we fully immerse ourselves into the throes of summer, take a look outside the window. Whilst fashion may be moving at a lightning pace, the weather is dragging its heels and remains cold, wet, and windy. So, while we wait for Mother Nature to catch up with the fash pack, take a look at these must-have transeasonal pieces brought to you by plus size clothes retailer, Curvissa.
The Trench Coat
Sure to keep you looking stylish come rain or shine, the classic trench coat is a wardrobe essential, providing waterproof protection against wet winter weather, and light warmth against a soft summer breeze. Wear it long or short, dress it up or down, and choose from a selection of colours and prints to find a design that best suits your style. Either way, you’ll evoke notions of old-school Hollywood glamour all year round.
Stay one step ahead of next season’s style in brilliant brogues. A great way to incorporate the androgynous look into your everyday wardrobe, brogues are quirky and versatile, providing the perfect shoe for everything from sweet summer dresses to wintery warmers. They look particularly chic when worn with rolled up jeans and a tee or when teamed with tights and a vintage dress. What’s more, there’s a huge selection of colours out there, so you’re sure to find the perfect shade for your outfit.
When tights are no longer weather-appropriate, slip into a pair of failsafe leggings. Ideal for protecting your pins from the inevitable summertime chill or for staying warm when the sun goes down on sunnier days, leggings also form a staple item throughout the colder months, providing a thickness often unavailable from tights. Play it safe in black leggings teamed with an oversized top, or be bold and embrace the latest trend of leg wear in an adventurous print.
When it comes to transeasonal workwear, the blazer should form an essential component of your office capsule wardrobe. Adding instant cool, fitted blazers are a timeless item that will smarten up any outfit without sacrificing your sense of style. Blazers that nip in at the waist and flare at the hips are also great for adding shape to your figure and accentuating your curves. Balance the masculine lines with a feminine shift and heels, or play up the androgyny in smart jeans and a chic shirt.
