The spring fashion collections are arriving daily instore and online and all you want to do is to wear the latest colours and styles to brighten up your wardrobe. However, the weather has other plans, and with rain, sleet and plummeting temperatures forecast for the next week at least the warmth of your winter attire is still your go to outfit.
You may have heard of 'transitional style' - fashion's name for the bit between the seasons - it's those outfits that will still keep you warm but have a nod to the new trends. It's also those items of clothing that you can buy now and wear with existing pieces in your wardrobe and then wear later once the weather has caught up with the start of the new season. This style is the perfect antidote to wearing the new trends now.
The monochrome look is one style that transcends the seasons. Over the past few years this look has migrated from traditional black and white with grey and cream and navy and white coming into the mix. From stripes to checks, the monochrome look can bring a touch of Spring to your style by adding a pop of pink, red or orange to the look through a scarf, bag or pair of shoes.
This year it's all about red and white, with red and white stripes a popular choice when it comes to the new season collections. Add a touch of red to your monochrome look and you will be stepping into Spring in style.
Here's just a few of our favourite transitional pieces to help you get the look:
