As February temperatures remain icy, your summer wardrobe can seem like a very distant concept. However there’s no reason not to inject some newness into your rotation. The answer? Timeless pieces that can be layered from now until summer.
The Lightweight Jacket
A lightweight jacket is one of the most versatile pieces you can invest in. The sumptuous suedette of the Sian Waterfall Jacket make it an excellent option for the office or evenings out. Pair with wide leg trousers and a heeled ankle boot for a sophisticated ensemble that will take you seamlessly from desk to drinks. Easily layered over shirts and long-sleeved tops, it will look equally as appropriate thrown on over a summer dress come warmer temperatures.
Lightweight knitwear makes the perfect transitional layer. Pair with jeans and a jacket for cooler temperatures and as an outer layer once the weather warms up. A striped jumper is a timeless choice; the navy and cream combination of the Ronnie Jumper make it an especially versatile option. For a more summery outfit, tuck into the cream Sian suedette skirt for a look that is light yet warm.
Bomber jackets are a great off-duty choice for in-between seasons. A printed version makes an impression whilst maintaining a laid back look. Layer over jumpers for now or lightweight tops and dresses during cool summer evenings. Alternatively, transport yourself to tropical climes by pairing with the matching culottes; break up the print with a classic white T-shirt so as not to detract from the floral motif.
For a hard-working top to take you from winter to spring, look no further than a high necked striped jumper. The ultimate layering piece, it works just as well under jumpsuits and dresses as it does as a stand-alone piece. Use as an added layer under the polly ponte jumpsuit for warmth or pair with lightweight culottes for easy summer style on in-between days; an essential addition to any capsule wardrobe.
