The shift between seasons can be a hard time for styling. It's not too hot, it's not too cold, so what do you wear? No one wants to load up on coats and jumpers only to hold them for the rest of the day when it gets warm as much as no one wants to be freezing because they thought they could get away with only a long sleeve t-shirt.
We think there is no better option for this strange time of the year, than to invest in beautiful, cotton knits.
I can see you recoiling at the mere mention of the word 'knit' anywhere near warm weather. And this may be true if we were talking about wool or cashmere - that are both known for keeping you extremely cosy, and also being packed away as soon as the weather gets warm. Cotton, on the other hand, is completely different.
Cotton is our go-to fabric for all seasons. You would have heard the saying, it's cool in summer and warm in winter, and that's completely true! Cotton is super breathable, wicks away moisture and helps to regulate temperature. It's also extremely versatile. It can be jersey, woven or knit - so there really is a cotton for all seasons.
In the trans-seasonal months (we're talking Spring and Autumn) is where cotton really shines. You won't have to wear unnecessary layers with cotton, simply throw on a cotton knit t-shirt with your favourite cotton cardigan for the perfect trans-seasonal look. We also love a cotton cardigan layered over one of our summer dresses, taking what is typically for warmer weather, straight through to the cold months.
With cotton having so many amazing features, you'll love wearing it not only for transitional weather, but all year round.
What are your favourite benefits of cotton?
All our love,
