Double Duty

Let’s not beat around the bush, retail can be a little confusing at this time of year…in one breath you could be contemplating a bikini and in the other a fur lined parka.  Confusing huh? Well, fear not because the new season drop at WSd gracefully transitions summer into autumn and means you can wear forward seasons now. This week’s case in point is the oh so fabulous MINKPINK…

The Now or Never dress (£50) is a fresh take on the suede trend with its vibrant red tones. Effortless yet glamorous, this beauty will take you through the balmy late summer months into the inevitable chill of fall. Satisfy your lust for feminine yet sexy and rock this staple now with bare legs and accessorize with the Bell & Fox cross body wristlet (£95) and the Moda in Pelle Larez shoes (was £69, now £55). Despite what its name may suggest this shift dress isn’t a now or never piece…when the temperature wavers pair with opaques and a roll neck. Simple.

Boho chic is typically associated with the summer months…think ethereal fabrics, celestial silhouettes and floral prints. Well the Mildly Obsessed blouse (£48) from MINKPINK proves that the land of Bohemia knows how to handle the seasons. A classic monochrome palette ticks the box for seamless transition while lightweight fabric makes this perfect to wear solo now or use as a base under a suede or fur gilet in a few months time. Showcase this pronto with cut off denim shorts and the Sol Sana Tobi Heel (now £70) then effortlessly ease into autumn with a pair of Vero Moda skinnies (£35) and Hudson Mirla boot (£150).

Transitioning your wardrobe from season to season is often thought of as a masterful fashion feat but Sarah proves its achievability by pairing the Vero Moda Poet frill cold shoulder top (£20) with the MINKPINK cord A-line skirt (£48).

Dungarees have been much lusted over this season and the MINKPINK Bibbed Skirt (£48) is a nod to the trend but with a fresh and updated vibe.The toughened up corduroy texture keeps this piece in line with autumn while the camel tones and split skirt detailing keep it current. Team with this season’s must have Bardot top and make the most of the shimmer of the sun on your shoulders. When the wind bites build up layers, starting with the MINKPINK Henley Rob bodysuit (£38).

So a heat wave is predicted for the weekend, yet what will next week bring?! Britain is a bit of a commitment phobe when it comes to the weather so there’s no right or wrong time to pick up a knit. The MINKPINK Smoke on the Water jumper (£58) will be your season-to-season staple, while the tassel trim keeps things fun and fresh for the rest of the summer.

Who knows what the seasons will bring but at WSd HQ we‘re forecasting spells of sunny pieces with scattered autumnal staples!
