Intuition is in! Perfect for changeable weather and spring dressing, we’ve rounded up six transeasonal looks that eschew the rules, celebrate pick-and-mix dressing for your mood, and solve some wardrobe dilemmas – whether it’s how to wear a slinky slip on a cooler day, or what to do with that additional sweater (other than stuff it in your handbag).
Don a demure sweater with an after-hours slip skirt for ultimate ease. While you’re at it, throw out the colour wheel and go for an unexpected array of shades that spark joy.
