12 Of The Best Pieces For Layering

What to wear when the weather can’t make up its mind

By Felicity Robinson

Spring has finally arrived, heralding what’s widely acknowledged to be the most difficult moment in the fashion calendar: trans-seasonal dressing. One moment, it’s t-shirt weather; the next, you’re pulling on a sweater as grey clouds scud across the sun.

As ever, the key to dressing for this changeable season is layering, says stylist Lucy Wood, who chose this week’s neutral-toned pieces, below. “It’s also a matter of choosing clothing that slips easily into your wardrobe.”

The Venroy scoop-neck top is the kind of hardworking item that looks great with jeans now and a silk skirt or shorts on warmer days. Similarly, Lee Mathew’s v-neck dress in khaki and tan layers beautifully with a fine knit underneath or a chunky sweater over the top.

“These are pieces you’ll wear for a long time and they’ll work brilliantly with clothes you already own, particularly if you lean to a more classic look,” says Lucy. Add a modern touch with a chunkier-soled sandal, such as the shearling Camilla and Marc slide, below, or any of the refined black leather sandals now appearing in stores.
