With the last of summers warm rays kissing our backs and cooler days heralding the change of seasons from our beloved Summer to Autumn our minds begin to wander to the cooler months ahead of us and it makes absolute sense that our wardrobes make this seasonal transition with us. Here at Chasing Unicorns, we believe that most clothing should be trans-seasonal and that you should never have to hide away your beautiful summer pieces when the weather gets cooler. With a few simple styling tricks, it is super easy to turn your wardrobe into a trans-seasonal collection that is sure to have you and others inspired to get the most out of the wonderful forever pieces that you already own, season to season, all year round! We’ve put together some transpersonal styling tips for two of our most treasured pieces from the Chasing Unicorns collection, ones that are far too incredible to not wear every day of the year.
The breathtakingly gorgeous Sugar Magnolia Midi Dress is the ultimate trans-seasonal dress style. Ideal for summer afternoon picnics teamed back with a pair of 70’s inspired tan wedges, woven cane bag and a glass of ice cold rose. To take this dreamy cotton dress through the seasons with you simply add a pair of statement boots in chocolate or the butteriest of tans and pair it back with a simple vintage leather handbag for a look that will have you ready to embrace Autumn in all your glory. When the weather really cools down this dress makes for the most wonderful winter wear when styled with a rust-hued velvet jacket or your favourite leather jacket, ankle boots and if you're feeling particularly inclined (or particularly cold!) you could even add a scarf and some fabulously textured wool stockings to the look. From vibrant summer days to those cool winter months, this dress has you covered!
Our beloved Waiting for the Sun Khaki Overalls are another piece from the Chasing Unicorns collection that are ideal for trans-seasonal wear. The lightweight cotton twill is the perfect fabric choice for those summer days when you prise yourself away from the beach and need to throw something over your bikini, sandy feet, sun-kissed skin and a killer pair of vintage sunnies is all you need to complete this look! To transition these fabulous and oh-so-practical overalls through to Autumn simply pair them back with a delicate blouse or tee and some much-loved sneakers or woven loafers for a look that is as trans-seasonal as it is understatedly cool. When those winter days get chilly it couldn’t be easier to reach for your overalls yet again and style them back with a knit in cream or white tones, your beloved sneakers and a beautiful handmade beanie for a look that is surf check, coffee run and school drop off perfection.
Here at Chasing Unicorns, we live by the ethos “BUY LESS, CHOOSE WELL” and making considered choices when purchasing forever pieces and looking at ways to utilise your existing wardrobe with just a few simple styling changes through the seasons of the year is just one easy and inspiring way that you too can contribute to this ideal.
