Cropped co-ords are a personal favourite for the transitional season – you might have seen me wear this amazing piece during New York Fashion Week for the Lapointe SS23 show! The cropped top half is perfect to keep you cool when the sun comes out, while the full bottoms is there to save you from chills. The best part: They’re SO stylish. Co-ords give you that chicness as you would when wearing a suit while giving that subtle element of playfulness. I’ve put some amazing ones below for you to try!
One key styling item for transitional season style I’ve been seeing a lot lately is the oversized jacket – like this braided bomber from Shop3ny I wore to the Cynthia Rowley runway show. However, it’s not just the usual oversized blazers and bombers, it’s also motorcycle jackets! Styling chunky jackets unlocks another level of serious ‘coolness’ that is different to your usual lightweight trench coats or denim outerwear. Pair your chunky jacket with combat boots to complete the ‘tough’ look. Also, just a tip, make sure whatever you’re wearing underneath is lightweight (like a crop top) – it’ll keep you from getting too hot.
If you haven’t already got a few oversized shirts in your wardrobe, you’re really missing out. GET SOME NOW! They are a huge staple for many of my outfits, especially for transitional season weather. Simply, throw it over a dress (like I’ve done above) for that casual chic look, or wear it as a dress with some knee high boots, or use it as a layering piece over some knitwear. The possibilities are endless! Some of the best oversized shirts are in the men’s section in thrift stores – Etsy also have a great selection. Alternatively, below I’ve listed some branded shirts for that distinct look you might be going after. Oversized shirts are one of the most forgiving of style pieces, so why not use it to pop some colour to your looks like this hot pink number?
