  • Outfit Ideas For Seasonal Transition

    With our unpredictable British weather, transitioning from your spring to summer wardrobe isn’t always a simple process. A summers day in Blighty might leave you sweltering, but more often than not, it can bring freezing temperatures and spitting rain, leaving you wondering what on earth you’re going to wear that day.

    The answer here is layering. A well-layered outfit not only looks chic, but also keeps you warm and comfortable when the British weather isn’t on your side. Thin knits and jackets are perfect for wearing over dresses and tops, whilst lighter dresses are great with sandals in warmer weather and with tights if it’s a little bit chilly.

    The super-chic, Refa Tailored Jacket (LR01) £85 is just the ticket for layering up for both smart and casual occasions and can be worn open or with its two-button fastening.  Team it with an easy-wear top like Poppy's Ribbed Scooped Neck Top (JP245) £24 and Carr & Westley’s comfortable and versatile wide leg Seashell Trousers (CT60) £55 for a fantastic seasonal combination.

    Carr & Westley’s new, limited-edition Bibury Dress (D908) £79 is perfect for the warmer weather due to its pure cotton, cool and comfortable fabric. From our customer-inspired Joy collection, it can be worn on its own or under a lightweight jacket like Poppy's Edge To Edge Jersey Jacket (JP094) £32.

  • Outfit Transitioning Advice From Carr & Westley

    The weather has definitely made a chilly turn now Autumn has settled in, but yet it’s not quite time for winter woolies, hats and scarves. We’re in that tricky stage, the transitioning stage between seasons, where it can be difficult to know quite what to wear. Between Autumn and Winter, the answer is in layering, adding warmth and texture and giving a different look to your outfit.

    To get you started, Carr & Westley has put together a selection of key items to  make the transitioning stage a little easier…

    Boucle Lumber Cardigan (£58) – a very popular, round neck boucle knit cardigan by Poppy. A favourite warm knit style for an extra layer, it can be worn over a round, crew neck or polo top (both long and short sleeves). For example, team the silver colour way with Betsy's Dragonfly Roll Neck Top (£36) with its cosy neckline and long sleeves. A fantastic relaxed, everyday wear option.

    Betsy’s Check Knitted Jacket (£65) is a super cosy, wrap-style jacket which makes a stunning throw-over for the colder months. Or try Lady at Double Two’s Smart Casual Jacket (£60) which makes the ideal option for that smart casual moment when you want to dress up a little. Layer over a thin, long-sleeve top of your choice.
