Transition Clothing Inspiration

Living in England means you and your wardrobe have to be prepared for a change in the weather. Most of the time it's raining and miserable, but occasionally we get surprised by the odd ray of sunshine, or temperatures above 15 degrees.

This means transition clothing is a big must for me. So here are some outfits, all of which can be mixed and matched into different outfits, so you can survive the changing seasons in style!

An ASOS love affair.

When it comes to fashion, my style doesn't always have one label. I've recently been loving a very minimal and casual style, with college leaving me little time to choose a killer outfit. Since starting college, my favorite thing to do is throw on a pair of jeans or leggings and a comfy top, then a few simple pieces of jewelry.
    However, after searching the web, I have found ASOS that have some great minimal and key pieces that will transform your wardrobe ; providing outfits to carry you through the seasons!

 Firstly, since it's currently winter, I love wearing a great statement jumper. I find it completely transforms an otherwise dreary outfit, seeming like you have spent hours putting it together when in fact, you've thrown it on after realizing you only have 5 minuets to catch your bus. When I looked through ASOS I found tonnes of great jumpers suitable for everyone's budget. I've picked out some that are defiantly worth the investment, as I believe they will go well with most things in my wardrobe.

Secondly, I have noticed, as of late, there have been a lot of people wearing jumpsuits. I think these are a great idea for 'on the run' style as they are literally so easy to just throw on. Also, since they're so versatile, you could go smart and wear it with a plain chiffon shirt, a fedora and some statement boots. Or, you could dress it down by putting on an old band-tee and a pair of Doc Martins. Here, I have chosen some of my favorite jumpsuits, from their minimalist range.

Bottoms! No, I'm not being rude...when putting an outfit together, I like to start with the bottom half (skirts, jeans, leggings etc). I find it easier to get a staple item and work around that. Lately, I have been loving mom and skinny jeans paired with a slouchy top or jumper. Alternatively, a buttoned front midi skirt, a crop top and a statement coat, to get a comfy, yet, put together look. I find this style is perfect to carry over the seasons, by swapping a few items to suit the climate.

Finally...Shoes! I have managed to get my love for shoes under control...for now. But who am I kidding, every girl needs a great pair of killer footwear (or ten). I like to tell myself that, by wearing a pair of kick-ass boots, it will revamp any outfit. This is true...but it's normally said right before I buy "just one more pair". ASOS, again, have some great buys that will last even through to A/W 2017.
