Transeasonal dressing can be tricky, especially when the weather is unpredictable. One minute it is warm enough for bare legs, and the next you need jeans! As the leaves begin to turn and we longingly wave goodbye to the last of the light, hazy evenings, ex Vogue-writer Christina Miller (@christinadaydreams) shows us how she styles her favourite Jones picks to last far past the final days of summer.
As many of us look to create a more sustainable wardrobe, built up of key pieces which we love, treasure, and, most importantly, will wear time after time again, transeasonal versatility is key. Often dubbed a ‘capsule wardrobe’, creating a carefully curated wardrobe is the perfect way to ensure that you get excellent cost per wear per item, which is not only great for our bank accounts, but for the environment too. Basics in no way have to be basic, as Christina shows us, styling classic pieces in versatile ways offers fuss-free dressing and chic silhouettes. Sold!
The Classic Espadrille
A chic wedge espadrille is the perfect way to get a touch of European cool into your everyday wardrobe. High enough to give a boost of height, but comfortable enough to wear all day, Alyssa is just the ticket for day to evening dressing. A great piece to invest in, a pair of espadrilles in a neutral shade will give you maximum versatility throughout Spring, Summer and beyond. Paired here with black straight leg jeans and a simple t-shirt, Christina shows us that minimal pieces have a maximum impact.

The Leather Mule
Seen on off-duty supermodels, influencers and fashionistas alike over recent seasons, the slip on mule is most definitely here to stay. For a premium look that will work with both days and evenings, opt for quality leathers for a sumptuous look that will stand the test of time. Monte Carlo’s wooden block heel gives a little elevation, whilst the braided detailing is chic, contemporary and classic at the same time.
