Prints at the ready! Here are some great transeasonal pieces (in the form of floral prints!) to mix with all your wardrobe essentials. Every season Isabel Marant's embroidered trousers are a must-have piece, and these hawaiin-print floral jeans are perfect for this time of year; they'll look great with a basic crew sweatshirt for English spring weather (e.g, minus 8 and snow? who knows?) or boxy t-shirts when summer does arrive! The plain grey sweater is T by Alexander Wang, but if you prefer something with a motif on it, opt for this Topman 'New York City' sweater (trust me, it's super warm!).
This Acne fringe top is great for teaming with mid-length skirts (or the jeans aforementioned); Christopher Kane's beautiful princess skirt (no really, it's actually called the 'princess' skirt) and at that price it should make you feel very royal indeed! If you're looking for something that won't break the bank, the structured mid-length white skirt by Topshop Boutique would look great with any t-shirt/sweater essentials too.
Alternatively if you're not a fan of skirts, these Alexander Wang floral graphic-print shorts from SS12 are perfect for teaming with any of the tops above! Or even swap the grey sweaters for coloured ones to make the shorts pop! They are the perfect length too, long enough for work but still with the transparent detailing to give it an edge. Still not convinced? They are 65% off at The Outnet! And it doesn't end there, the amazing cut-out black 'Danica' heels are also Wang, so highly coveted when they first came out and, again, 55% off at The Outnet! (Race you to the checkout.)
To accessorise pick a bold statement clutch, like this Pierre Hardy one, or for something more novel the Olympia Le Tan Caviar purse is just too fun! And yes, featuring another pair of Bekket sneakers because I dare you to find an outfit they don't go with, or maybe my obsession is now a problem and I need help? Finally mix all these pieces together and see how many outfits you can make from them! Now i've justified all these potential purchases for you, shop them here:
