We are back to that awkward time of year when we find ourselves saying “what do I wear today”. I don’t know about you, but with it being the month of September I literally want to fill my wardrobe with Autumn/Winter clothes. We are seeing lots of new trends hitting the shops now too. However, the weather outside is still warm. So what’s a gal to do?
I would suggest picking the perfect items which are ideal to wear now, but can be styled many ways through these next seasons – transeasonal dresses. You also want to be investing into your winter wardrobe not just for this year but for many more, so it’s always worth thinking about classic styles and pieces that you’ll get longevity from too. So worry not, I have found two ideal dresses from Phase Eight which can do all of the above, perfect for dressing up or down, and will have you looking fabulous at the same time!
The Swing Dress
What do you think of the Zola Swing Dress. This semi-fitted dress has such a flattering shape due to the swing cut, short sleeves and curved seam waist. As you can see I’ve styled this dress very straight forward by adding a pendant and ankle boot, it’s the perfect work look. But you could easily add a statement heel and clutch bag should you want to carry this look through into the evening. When the weather gets colder, I would suggest adding warm chunky tights, knee high boots, a trilby hat and jacket for great winter layering style.
The Tunic Dress
The second transeasonal dress is the Matilda Tunic. Styled the same as the swing dress, I wanted to demonstrate how great it looks due to the stand out print – it’s like wearing artwork. The contemporary jersey tunic would also look amazing styled into the winter with leather trousers and a sleeveless jacket for an edgier look. Or for a more casual everyday style, I would definitely wear leggings and ankle boots to maximise the styling potential.
