Summer is right around the corner.
Afternoons of sipping Pimms, catching up with friends for a fresco dining, and escaping to the beach are all on the horizon. With the unpredictability of British weather, you want to incorporate transitional pieces that can take your spring staples through to summer. Whether it’s drizzling or record-setting heat, you want to be prepared for whatever the summer might throw at us.
Transitional pieces are the perfect ones to invest in for your closet. They’ll see you through every season and can be mixed and matched with seasonal pieces. We’re spotlighting a few of our favourite pieces to help you spring into summer – whatever you have in your social calendar.
Whether you’ve got a garden party or small-scale wedding to attend, you want to have a tea dress hanging in your closet. The versatility of a tea dress means you can style it by itself on warmer days or layer up with a blazer to keep warm against the evening chill.
Our new season Plum Blossom Tea Dress is made using crepe de chine silk, making it lightweight and breathable to take you from spring to summer. If you prefer to make a statement with an on-trend colour, we offer our Lily Tea Dress in green and purple. The versatility of the silhouette means you can wear anything from open-toe stilettoes to ankle boots.
Another dress you need in your transitional closet is our iconic Victoria Porcelain Dress. This piece is a staple as the short sleeves make it ideal for layering with a cardigan or blazer. If the temperatures are rising, you can work on your summer tan while staying cool. One of our favourites is the Derling Embroidered Dress, a summer-appropriate version of our iconic Derling Gown.
As spring turns to summer, it ushers in the wedding season. With restrictions easing, our social calendars are filling up with engagement parties, weddings, family events, and functions to attend.
Our Short-sleeved Qiaochu Embroidered Peacock Dress will see you through them all. Add a light shawl to your look to make it evening appropriate for when the temperatures drop. We also offer our Qiaochu Dress with a three-quarter length sleeve and longer silhouette to transform it into a mixi-dress.
Blazers are a girl’s best friend. They’re a seasonless staple that you can wear year-round, making them the perfect investment into your closet. Our Yanxi Embroidered Jacket has a peplum silhouette and can be worn with any dress as a transitional piece.
We’ll be wearing these transitional pieces through some of the most iconic streets of London. If you’re looking for inspiration for where to take your new SKYLENCE staples, we recommend grabbing brunch in Notting Hill and shopping through the streets of Knightsbridge. Don’t forget to pack your sunglasses and SPF into your bag!
