The Tricks To Transition

Loading Likes...

Winter’s arrival doesn’t mean parting ways with our favourite spring and summer pieces. As boss ladies, we enjoy having access to all our pieces year round. The key to looking season appropriate is layering. It’s a well known fashion concept, and this week’s post dives into the considerations you need to make when it comes to layering under dresses.

COLOUR COMBINATIONS:

Getting your colour combination right is a tiered approach. The first tier is your dress colour. Is it bold, or is it subtle? Bolder coloured dresses are best paired with basic tops. Neutral toned dresses have more flexibility. Gain an understanding of the colours that work well with your dress colour. Referring to guides like this will help clear any confusions you may have.

DRESS NECKLINE:

The best dresses to layer under are dresses with a high (turtleneck or mockneck) or plunge neckline. Under a high neckline, any layering piece will go, as only the layering piece’s arms will be on display. Under a plunge neckline, layering pieces with a tight fit look the most appropriate. A personal favourite is layering a tight mockneck under a dress featuring a v neck plunge.

Two other types of dresses to consider are overall dresses and slip dresses. These dresses allow for more experimentation because of their cut and fit.

A final consideration to note:

Whilst material and detailing is a personal choice, remember to strike balance with the pieces you’re layering. Bold, brightly embellished layering pieces are fine so long as the dress is simple.

OUTFIT INSPIRATION:

This Zara dress is a summer staple. It is a multi-faceted dress, appropriate for both corporate and cocktail. The dress’ plunge neckline is shown off by layering a cashmere turtleneck in black, for cohesion. To highlight the gromit detailing on the dress, the accessories and boots are simple, classic and understated. A well tailored charcoal grey coat with strong button detailing is the final layering element to pull the look together.

OOTN | THE WEEKND

Loading Likes...

When I think of The Weeknd, I think of moody, dark vocals, edge, sass and suspense. So why shouldn’t my outfit reflect the same?

When dressing for a concert where you know you’re going to break it down and scream your lungs out, comfort is key. I’m a huge believer in letting your outfit emulate the artist’s vibe. That’s why, for this look, I chose to mix black, metallics, texture and leather.

THE DETAILS

Since the concert was in the night, I paired my trusty Just Jeans black denim jeggings with an H&M invisible neckline top boasting sheer sleeves. To finish off the look, I wore a pair of black sock boots from Diana Ferrari, earrings and ring from Lovisa, a boutique studded bracelet and a red lip courtesy of Maybelline.

Other alternatives for this look include wearing a black camisole, high waisted tailored shorts or combat boots. Carrying a bag that’s size appropriate and fits all your belongings is also important. I’ve linked some other bags that would work perfectly for this look.

BAG TWO

When wearing an all black ensemble, you have free reign with the accessories you choose. I chose to stick to a metallic theme, and have curated two jewellery looks with different metals.

Because my skin tone is cooler, I went with cooler gold, silver and crystal tones. The ring and bracelet emulate the same shape; and the earrings add a bit of dramatic flair because of their unique shape. These earrings sit below your lobe, rather than on your lobe, which adds a new layer to this ensemble.

However, if you have a warmer skin tone, working with gold, bronze and darker toned silver jewellery is perfect. True to current trend, I created a bangle stack with a combination of claspless bangles, a dainty circle accented bracelet, and a dark silver bracelet to provide a bit of edge and drama. Perhaps my favourite part of this jewellery combination however, are the earrings. These earrings, reminiscent of the Dior reversible pearl earrings brought out earlier this year, can be worn with either a larger or smaller pearl, depending on your preference. You could even alternate the stud size to add a new dimension to the look.
