Ever wondered how the style set effortlessly transition their wardrobe from spring to summer? Vogue.co.uk editor Lucy Hutchings reveals the clever additions to invest in now
When transitioning between seasons, light layers come into their own. “Consider this scarf-print design your perfect mid-season day dress,” says Vogue’s Lucy Hutchings. “It will also seamlessly bridge your work and weekend wardrobes.”
“Loungewear dressing is also a must right now,” says Lucy. Try a pyjama-inspired set to fully embrace the trend, or simply pair the top with jeans for a more subtle take.
“If you’re not in possession of a trouser suit, now is the time to add one to your repertoire,” says Lucy. “A laid-back cut brings a modern edge to traditional tailoring.”
Equally, swap starchy fabrics for fine knitwear like this forest-green sweater. To elevate your look, wear a tonal hue from head to toe. “Classic pieces feel instantly smarter when paired with a coordinating shade,” explains Lucy.
There are some pieces that never go out of style – but what if you took those wardrobe heroes and gave them a twist? “A new staple for the transitional wardrobe is the sleeveless jacket,” says Lucy. This beautifully structured piece is crafted from butter-soft suede, making it the ultimate layering piece to covet this season.
For the classic white shirt, Lucy recommends trying the new season’s off-the-shoulder trend. “It’s fashion’s new erogenous zone.”
