Transitional Treats

7.24 scarf 2

7.24.01

As stores slowly push out their colorful summer dresses and wool jackets styled with warm scarves come creeping in, we know that its time to start investing in staples for Fall. Meanwhile, we’re still sweltering in the underground as we await metro trains, and above ground as well, when it becomes so hot that we need to take little gelato and iced tea breaks between errands.

Our solution at the Sheena Trivedi team is to stock up on pieces that we deem transitional—versatile enough to get us through whatever-the weather and layer-proof so that we can take on (or off) the extras. Our picks? Our black cotton silk Ana top with an elongated back and our striking red, gold, silver, and black Sara scarf detailed with leather fringes.

These pieces are easy to combine with other garments to achieve maximum comfort as we navigate through those moments where we can feel the chill of late August approaching, but we remember to still bask in the summertime sun.

Remembering that compromise is key,

Back it Up

5 3 2Show off your summertime tan lines this week with our back-revealing Anna and Tasha tops whose leather and silk georgette combinations will keep you edgy but elegant for a night out on the town.

Striking an enviable balance between showing just-enough-yet-not too-much, these tops are flattering, chic, and incredibly versatile. Their open back dips provide just the right amount of daring and mystery.

Team either of these tops with long trousers for a neat, urbane aesthetic.

Back’s out,

Ever feel like you should have been born in a different era?

We certainly have, but the combination of our mini Basanti Skirt paired with our gorgeous Sonali sweatshirt takes us back in more ways than one.  Throw on this outfit, add some mascara, practice your doe-eyed look, and you will be left feeling like Twiggy strutting through the swinging 60’s of London.

Not in the mood for makeup? This schoolgirl inspired look might also remind you of the skinned knees and sounds of recess bells from your own childhood. But don’t worry if you no longer want to be told when playtime is over—the leather detailing in these pieces have us feeling that the girl in this outfit lives life on her own terms and will be making up her own rules from now on.

Play fair,

Longing for summertime romance but not sure what to wear this date night?

Try our stunning Bella dress in green and blue, which not only drapes gracefully in the back, but also responds beautifully to the slightest hint of wind. You will be left feeling like an old Hollywood starlet, albeit a contemporary one–an exotic, exciting, re-imagined Marilyn Monroe.

The combination of silk and georgette in this piece will ooze elegance, but the leather detailing will keep things interesting with its subtle suggestion to that special someone that there is more to you than meets the eye.

Enjoy (and don’t blame us when the flowers arrive.)
