I thought Id try something a little different when it comes to styling and thought about transitional pieces instead. Last week I picked up the Vans SK8-HI which I've been after for the last few months and decided to style them for 3 different seasons.

When it comes to summer styling, I kept it simple with an interesting patterned tee, neutral socks and then a more relaxed pair of shorts. I wore this outfit the other day and I think its perfect for summer as its versatile as you can swap the tee for a vest when it gets hotter, or layer jumpers or shirts over if the weather clouds over.

The second look is more something I would wear during the Autumn, where its still warm but at night it gets a little colder. With this look, I would tie the shirt round the waist to add another element to the bottom half with the shorts/leggings and boots combo. The cut off vest is a staple for layering as its thin enough for when it gets warmer, but is perfect under a shirt, such as how I styled it.

For the final look, I looked towards Winter for inspiration and the uniform of shirts and jeans. I picked a pair of skinny jeans that I would cuff so that you still get a bit of exposure without being freezing (Ive done that before, and learnt!) and then paired it with the thicker, oversized shirt. The look reminds me of a 90s skater where theres a juxtaposition between sizing and the nonchalant attitude when it comes to pairing pieces together.
