    We’re done with duvet dressing but not quite ready for summer’s big reveal. So what to wear now? Trans-seasonal dressing (i.e. the tricksy art of styling oneself at times in between those key fashion seasons) is all about ankle flashing, smart layering and a decent dousing of fresh colour. So say these stylish stars…

    Embrace New Lengths, Says Gigi Hadid
    Get your ankles out. Daring, we know. But tailored culottes and structured midi skirts are the easiest way to ease yourself into the new season – not to mention two of the most versatile trans-seasonal pieces you can invest in. Dress them up with a white shirt like Gigi or down with a well-decorated sweatshirt.

    Get Some Fresh Wardrobe Injections, Says Olivia Palermo
    There are some key SS15 trends you can start trialling right away – why wait ‘til high summer to embrace the flares revival? Olivia’s giving a masterclass in layering, teaming hers with a sequinned knit and woven waistcoat.

    Revisit Your Classics, Says Hailey Baldwin
    This is the time of year for your non-trend-led items to shine. Your white shirt, your classic blazer, all the denim you own. Hailey cleverly plays with the proportions of her wardrobe staples to make them her own – you’ll be amazed at the impact details like a tucked cuff or a turned up trouser hem can have.

    Say Yes To Sandals, Says Kendall Jenner
    You’ll be amazed at how much lighter, slimmer and fresher your entire look will feel by simply ditching the winter boots. Start by teaming sandals with trousers and gradually up the hemlines as the warmer weather kicks in (we might swap the wrap crop top for a chunky knit, too).

    Do Spring Colours, Says Freida Pinto
    Lilac! Lemon! Bubblegum! Tis the (in-between) season to work those distinctly spring colours, especially when it comes to occasionwear. Keep cuts sharp and accessories edgy to stop the look from being too pretty.

    Lighten Up, Says Kim Kardashian
    Rule number one; swap your heavy winter coat for a lightweight silk duster. Rule two; work a top-to-toe palette of off-whites. That Kim Kardashian knows a thing or two about layering neutrals.
