At Fashion Week I once has a conversation with fashion anthropologist Kenny Jules Morifi-Winslow about layering. We both hate it and would rather add some outerwear over a tee or a strappy number to instantly switch between cool and warm mode. 

We don't do cardigans.

I adore the ease of a leather jacket, an oversized blazer, a vintage sweatshirt, a puffer, a trench or a denim jacket over a dress or tee for an easy transitional outfit. 

This one got snapped up by @andreaduplessiss but we got some rad new merch in store ??

If this is also your approach to transitional wear, here's what to shop now: 

Old Khaki, Alexia Velvet Bomber Jacket, R799

Shop your local vintage store for budget-friendly retro trenches, oversized vintage denim jackets or colourful sweatshirts.
