The Art of Transeasonal dressing

With adaptability, elegance and a little colour: wool, flannel, suede and corduroy will lift your spirits during the gap in season. Here’s some guidance on what to wear.

The practice of transeasonal dressing is a long corridor, flanked on either side by doors - each offering different possibilities of dressing. Picking your way through one room that is filled with cashmere and coats is going to spruce up some uncomfortable moments, where drastic weather ordeals from one end of the spectrum to the other can quite easily collide in a day. In order for you to flourish in this tricky part of the year it is going to take a frill of stylistic nous to elect fabrics, cuts and colours from each of the two key seasons in fashion, with the aim to muster up an outfit that is comfortable, cool and foolproof, whilst keeping stylish.

One of the most influential artistic styles of the twentieth century, Cubism was about representing reality by bringing different views of subjects (usually objects or figures) together in the same picture. Pioneers of the movement such as Picasso and Georges Braque were cunningly able to break down objects and figures into distinct areas to show different viewpoints at the same time and within the same space. It is an accession shrouded in complexity, but the basic approach of separating seasonal codes to form one is not an outlandish endeavour and if creatively constructed, you can end up having some real fun with your style.
