5 Transitional Wardrobe Staples Our Founder Recommends for Seamless Seasonal Style
Embrace the beauty of transitional dressing with our EIC Maria.

As we transition into a new season, whether you're in Melbourne feeling the cool breeze or elsewhere enjoying warmer days, the challenge of dressing appropriately yet stylishly persists. I'm here to guide you through this sartorial shift with five essential pieces that have become the backbone of my own wardrobe and are sure to elevate yours.

1. The High-Waisted, Wide-Leg Jeans
These jeans are a game changer in the world of denim. Flattering for almost every body type, they bring an effortless elegance to any outfit. I’m particularly fond of the Outland Denim Ellie High Rise Wide Leg Jean in Stellar for its flattering shape and deep indigo hue. Pair them with ballerina flats for a casual chic look, or dress them up with a kitten heel. For an alternative, the Tomorrow DeTMRW Brown Jeans in Bilbao offer a classic, straight-legged style that’s equally versatile and stylish.

2. The Timeless Shirt
A well-made shirt is the epitome of versatility. This season, I'm gravitating towards the striped Kow Tow Daily Shirt. Its classic collar and cuffs, combined with a comfortable flare through the body, make it a perfect layering piece under knits and blazers, or as a standalone item. Its striped pattern adds a dimension of casual sophistication, making it a staple in any wardrobe.

3. The Elevated Singlet

Moving away from the basic ribbed cotton versions, today's singlets are about refined style and fit. The ELSE BLACK V-NECK TOP IN GOTS ORGANIC SILK is a testament to effortless elegance. Its relaxed silhouette and organic silk fabric blend seamlessly with both casual and formal ensembles. Another excellent choice is the CREPE KNIT RIB SINGLET by Scanlan and Theodore in Cream, offering a sophisticated option for everyday wear.

4. Slingback Pumps
The perfect transitional footwear, slingback pumps, especially the Prada 55mm patent-leather slingbacks, strike the right balance between comfort and style. Their minimalist design and kitten heel make them a versatile choice for any outfit, be it formal or casual.

5. Classic Eyewear

To round off your transitional wardrobe, a pair of classic sunglasses is indispensable. TOM FORD's Maxwell aviator-style sunglasses are my go-to choice. Their timeless design suits a variety of face shapes, and the subtle ombré lenses add an edge of sophistication.

These five pieces are not just clothing items; they are an investment in your style, designed to carry you through the seasons with ease and elegance. Mix and match them to create diverse looks that are both functional and fashionable.

Until next time, stay stylish and embrace the beauty of transitional dressing.
