The Inbetweeners

The Inbetweeners

Transeasonal outfits’ otherwise known as what to wear in that tricky ‘in-between’ point of the year when it’s not quite winter, not quite spring and the only fashion option that seems to exist consists of whatever’s left on the sale rails.

For those in search of fresh styles ahead of 2017, allow us to introduce our capsule collection of chic new pieces, handily available right now. Think of these delightful styles as trusty building blocks from which to assemble your new season wardrobe around. The early bird does indeed catch the worm.

We asked Lucy Nicholls, Boden’s social media content producer and founder of ShinyThoughts blog, to bring the styles to life through two outfits that would work for a whole host of occasions now and in the new year. Over to you, Lucy.

“I’m known to be a colourful dresser with a penchant for print so I’m always after new styles to add interest and vibrancy to my wardrobe. Our capsule transeasonal range launched at just the right time, helping to distract me from all the presents I’m yet to buy and wrap.”

“The hint of Sixties style in the jumpers and coats are an easy way to inject some much needed newness right now, as well as being relevant next season.”

PASTELS

I’d wear this on a chilly day when I’m searching for somewhere to have a hygge brunch like here at London’s only Danish restaurant Snaps and Rye.  Pastels are perfect to wear now in the run up to Christmas, but they’re also a subtle way to do colour in January.

“In terms of accessories, the silver crossbody bag  (coming soon) is my favourite item from the range. It’s neat, minimal and the perfect shade of metallic for a girl whose alias is Shiny Thoughts. I’ll be wearing this with everything from my New Year’s Eve dress to my Richmond trouser and silk shirt outfit for work.”

PRIMARIES

My second outfit really hints to Spring. This print dress will look so seasonally appropriate in the warmer weather but will also look great now paired with a cashmere  cardigan.

“The best thing about this dress is the pockets. Everyone needs them to house all of life’s miscellaneous items! I’ve added a cardigan and a pair of blue slipper shoes for a girly look.”

“The yellow coat is another stand-out piece. Surely nothing can pull you out of a post-Christmas dinner slump than putting this ray of sunshine on with your boots and heading out on a bracing walk.

“Come Spring I’ll be standing proudly at the bus stop in this piece while everyone else trudges past in their grey and black overcoats.  I think of it as doing my bit for my neighbours by perking them up in the morning.“
