Continuing on the theme of trans-seasonal style, we've asked Stylist, Aysha Mattar, to guide us through some looks using her favourite pieces from Maison du Maillot.
Look 1: Prints and more
I would transition this staple linen shirt dress with a vintage blazer and my favourite recycled leopard print stockings plus a pair of sneakers. Soft linen is ideal for transitional dressing because it won’t make you too warm on those in-between days.
Look 2: To the beach and back
Shirt dresses, especially in white will be a wardrobe go-to for a very long time to come. This is styled for a summertime beach look that takes you from beach to a casual lunch.
I’ve paired it here with a rust colour printed pant to contrast with the orange in the Mara Hoffman bikini top. Metallics as always are the ideal accent to amplify any outfit.
Look 3: Back in Black
Layered with a sheer polo underneath, this silk jumpsuit from Mes Demoiselles gets an immediate cooler weather update. I must admit that more wear will come out of this piece the more creative I get with putting looks together.
I would also wear it with a long sleeve t-shirt and a denim jacket for a daytime casual look.
Look 4: Suit up
This is my ode to the 90s. This jacket is vintage and belonged to my mom during that decade. I absolutely love layering different tones of the same colour together. It automatically elevates an outfit and makes it look more put together and cohesive without going over the top.
Keep in mind, that when you add texture through different fabrics that elevates a look too. Wear this Lanhtropy dress with an oversized blazer with a belt as an option or buttoned up as a skirt to get more wear out of each item of clothing.
Look 5: 90s Comeback
This grey gauzy dress is the perfect investment piece if you’re a minimalist trans-seasonal dresser because it’ll take you from summer to fall just by adding a few extra pieces.
I’ve cinched in my waist to help create a more hourglass figure and added a pair of liquid jeggings and boots to guarantee I’m warm enough.
Look 6: Hints of pink
This is how I would transition this super bright & happy colour into spring or fall. By teaming such a bright colour with neutrals, greys and ecrus, it tones down the brightness to make it seasonally appropriate.
I’ve teamed it with my grey New Balance sneakers and a burgundy fanny pack by Jerome Dreyfuss.
