Nothing in the world is better that cheap things that look damn fancy. Nothing.
It’s March already. Mind. Blown. And apart from being terrified by the fact that the year is disappearing at an uncomfortably fast rate, I’m starting to get concerned about my trans-season wardrobe, namely the fact that it’s crappy.
What the eff is “trans-season”, I hear you mutter.
Well my friends, trans-season is that in-between time where it’s not really hot enough to wear float-y summer dresses anymore, but not really cold enough to go full layering with pants, boots and jumpers. (Read: a bloody hard time to get dressed.)
Trans-season doesn’t last that long, so you don’t want to spend trillions on pieces you won’t wear all-year … enter this list of chic sartorial buys that are less than a hunge. Move quickly, some of them are on sale, NOW.
Go, go, go…
1. ‘Wally’ tan croc leather heels from Wittner.
Stable enough for you to make the walk into work without your face meeting the pavement, high enough to say, ‘I mean business and you better not get in my way while I’m doing it’. These are heavy and chunky enough for autumn and in winter you can go all Alexa Chung and layer with socks.
2. Sia stripe dress from Saba.
The is the most flattering dress you’ll ever wear. Hear me out… It falls beautifully, it hits at exactly the right point on your legs and it cinches beautifully at the waist. Serious winner.
3. Abby zip tote from Seed.
Look at it, just look at it. A timeless black tote for less than $100, what’s not to love? You will tote (geddit?) it forever.
4. Diane grid print over-sized long sleeve shirt from Boohoo.
It’s all about a shirt in 2015: they cover the upper arms, and be button-right-to-the-top for an on-trend take, or left low for evening. Do the only-one-side-tucked for a really FAR-SHUN look. Wear with anything you want to make look more polished.
