It’s Time we Discuss Trans-seasonal Dressing: The Modern Girl’s Guide
Things are finally cooling off in Wollongong but as we move into autumn, we know that there will still be warm days ahead. This brings us to the topic of trans-seasonal dressing because whether you live in Wollongong, London or LA, there are always those timeless, versatile pieces that you can carry from season to season given their non-trend led nature.  In other words: trans-seasonal clothes look fresh and new, they freshen our wardrobe in the depths of winter and at the close of summer. In summary: cool, modern, wearable fashion.
