Dressing For The Transeason

 The 'between' seasons make for an unpredictable climate, and dressing for the day can can be tricky. It's crucial to build on a capsule wardrobe, appropriate for bridging the seasons. We've sourced some hot tips from VOGUE's transeasonal 'how to' guide with advice from the globe's leading fashion buyers.

'Transeasonal dressing is about working key fashion staples including lightweight trench coats and bombers, denim, a great tailored blazer and plenty of neutral basics to be used for layering. It’s about living outside the seasons.' — Teneille Ferguson, David Jones Buying Manager

'In many ways transitional dressing is code for how women really dress. Season-less wardrobe essentials that can tackle any weather and always look chic. A beautiful trench, a sumptuous sweater, the perfect pair of jeans, a trophy shirt, a great sweatshirt, a sophisticated shirtdress—these are items that are not bound to any season (or locale) and can be adjusted and layered as needed.' — Coco Chan, head of womenswear Stylebop.com

'Invest in wardrobe stables that can work with heavy knitwear or light cotton e.g. a white shirt, a statement trench coat, bold blazers, ankle boots and statement heels. And if you buy well and look after your clothes, you can shop your own wardrobe; I almost always find something from years ago that is a take on what’s trending now – a good spring clean can often be the rediscovery of some forgotten gems.' Candice Fragis, Farfetch buying and merchandising director
