Transitional Dressing Top Picks

There’s nothing quite as British as unpredictable weather. You can leave your house with the sun shining in clear blue skies and come home drenched by a sudden downpour. With the season changing, transitional dressing is key. With the right clothing choices, you will be ready for both the chill of the wind and bursts of sunshine. Here are some of our favourite picks!

Layer Up With Cardigans

Cardigans are the perfect piece for transitional dressing. With the right cardigan, you can create some beautiful layers to your outfit. If you’re looking outside and you can’t figure out what the weather will be like, add a cardigan to your ensemble so you can stay warm or take it off if the sun appears!

Whether you prefer a Soft Knit Cardigan or a Cable Knit Cardigan, make sure you add this vital layer to keep you warm on grey days. Why not choose a lighter colour like yellow to fill your day with something bright, even if the sun hasn’t shown.

Layer Up with a Fleece Gilet

This Fleece Gilet are perfect for the transitional period. They're a great piece of outerwear that keeps your core warm when chilly weather strikes. They help you regulate your temperature by keeping your torso warm and your arms free. Plus, they're versatile and great for layering up or down according to the temperature of the day!

Summer-Ready Trousers

With the weather turning every day, you need clothes that are versatile for any British climate. Lightweight trousers combine both style and comfort with their simple patterns and textured fabrics. Featuring an elasticated back and flowing material, you’ll be comfortable all day long. They will keep you warm when it’s sunny and protect your legs from chilly winds.

Midi and Maxi Skirts

If you want something a bit cooler than trousers, a beautiful midi or maxi skirt is a great alternative. With stunning prints and colour choices, skirts are great if you want something a bit more dressed up.

Whether you choose simple or vibrant, these midi skirts are great pieces for spring and summer. Perfect for keeping you cool on warmer days but still covering your legs from the wind. The floral prints will remind you of gorgeous spring days – even if it is grey outside! If you need a skirt that provides more warmth, choose a thicker lined skirt.


No outfit would be complete without some essential accessories. With the weather changing so frequently, the most helpful accessory of all will be a stylish new bag. We all know what it’s like when it’s grey and drizzling in the morning then bright and sunny just two hours later. Save yourself the hassle of carrying your jackets and jumpers around all day with a large handbag.

This Butterfly Canvas Shopping Bag has plenty of space for you to put your things. Featuring a beautiful butterfly design, it’s sure to suit any transitional outfit you put together. Alternatively, this gorgeous backpack will hold all your things and keep your hands free for added convenience.

To add an extra bit of flair to your outfit, try a beautiful silk or chiffon scarf. These fabrics are delightfully soft and can be used to complement any colour choice. A lightweight scarf like this can help keep you warm without being too thick and heavy like a winter scarf.
