The Model and Me: Surafina

Nikki ParkinsonFashion, The Model and Me 6 Comments

My wardrobe consists of two extremes.

The winter extreme and the summer extreme.

In between you’ll find the majority of my clothes, all clothes that fit into the trans-seasonal category.

These are clothes that consist of light layers – layers that can easily be added or taken off as the day warms up or cools down.

It’s the area of my wardrobe that I get most wear out of for most of the year, so it’s the area that I pay the most attention to when it comes to making sure that everything in it works for me.

Queensland-based online store Surafina knows and understands the power of the trans-seasonal, offering relaxed designs that suit a multitude of occasions.

Today I’m featuring a three-piece outfit that will serve you now and well into spring.

A girl can never have too many shrugs, capes or kimonos in her trans-seasonal wardrobe life.

They not only have the practical advantage of keeping you warm when it’s not quite sizzling outside but they also add interest to your outfit because you’ve added an extra layer.

The top underneath is a free-size halter style which may not be everyone’s cup of tea. The necklace is flattering but you will need to wear a strapless bra with it – unless you keep your shrug on and said shrug covers the bra straps, which I may or may not intend on doing.

I’ve already featured this style of pant but in khaki … blue is so hot a colour for spring that I feel fresher already for donning this hue.

This is an outfit I’d wear to a cafe meeting or lunch with the girls. Such versatility wins out every time for me when making new wardrobe choices that I know will go the distance.

What are your key trans-seasonal wardrobe wonders?
