Transitional Layering



It’s fast approaching that awkward time of the year where the spring weather is starting to creep in but it’s not time to ditch the knitwear just yet. This transitional period between the winter and spring months can be a struggle for shoppers who aren’t sure which season they should be buying for.

At Moores, we think the trick to bridging the gap between these seasons is layering. With lots of lightweight pieces, you can layer up or down depending on the weather. This is an ideal approach to transcending the seasons and also accounts for the occasional rainy day.

We have put together two ensembles of lightweight, easy to wear pieces that we think are great for layering. Let us know which items are your favourite on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.


Joules Go To Gilet, Esprit Melange Hoodie and Gant Merino Beanie.

The Joules ‘Go To’ Gilet is the ultimate layering piece for any wardrobe. It is both stylish and practical, filled with soft faux down that provides warmth without the weight. It is easy to wear and looks great over the Esprit Cotton Blend Hoodie, an additional lightweight layer with a melange finish. We have topped this ensemble off with a Gant Merino Beanie as they say the best way to stay warm is with a hat. This look is a great sporty inspired combination for those cold or rainy days throughout the transitional period.


Gant The Airie Jacket, Esprit Fine Knit Cotton Jumper and Joules Hewney Shirt.

The key piece of this outfit is the Gant Airie Jacket, a slim and lightweight bomber style jacket. It can be packed away compactly as and when it is required, making it the perfect layering piece. Underneath we have chosen to pair the Joules Hewney Shirt in Navy Gingham, and the Esprit Fine Cotton Knit on top for a cool, preppy look. This smarter casual style is a great layering option for those fresher, more spring-like days.
