The transition between seasons presents a few style challenges, as the weather can vary wildly and you find yourself lost somewhere between coats and swimsuits.

1 PIECES, 3 WAYS
Well designed, pared back pieces lend themselves to loads of different looks and are the building blocks of any good wardrobe, especially effective for in between season styling. I've styled the MUJI Rib Big Silhouette Sweater in 3 different ways to show how to achieve the perfect trans-seasonal style with just one quality basic...
Pairing a sweater with a pencil skirt, particularly a midi, is a perfect way to go when dressing in between seasons. The skirt provides enough coverage for the legs and in the pencil cut it works to balance out the relaxed fit of a sweater. Style in an ankle boot (white is THE boot trend right now!) and you are good to go.
A sweater paired with a denim skirt is a great option for those mid season days when it's sunny and you want a relaxed look but it is still not quite warm enough for shorts and sandals. Distressed denim is the way to go for adding texture and detail to an otherwise quite simple look. A heeled ankle boot is perfect for some warmth and height, with a fun hat an optional extra to add some personality.
If you feel the cold but are not quite ready for coats, a wide leg pant with a sweater can be the perfect answer. Paper bag waist pants are an on trend and effortlessly stylish piece to pair with a basic sweater, creating a long and relaxed line from head to toe. A pointed boot ensures the look isn't too frumpy and elongates the legs. Try going all the one colour for a stylish, tonal look. Some statement sunglasses will make the whole look pop and give it a fashion forward edge.
The fabric, cut and colour palette at MUJI is incredibly well thought out - their pieces are designed for the ultimate minimalist looking to invest in quality, ease and style without the hge price tag.
