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,

If you’re lucky enough to be spending this summer at the beach, don’t forget to pack our Star Bra and Moon Panties, whose blends of silk and georgette will keep you turning heads as you run along the shoreline while the wind blows in your hair or as you relax at your favorite seaside bar with a piña colada in hand.

This Bollywood-meets-Baywatch combo is perfect for the beach, but don’t limit yourself to wearing these pieces only on the sand. Throw over our matching silk and georgette Azza dress and consider the opportunities for wearing these pieces in the city. Our Star Bra teamed with long high waisted pants for evening? Our Azza dress over a fitted cami at an exhibit opening? The possibilities for these pieces are endless.

How will you wear them?

The Best of Both Worlds

Wink at the past with our Jass Corset whose shape will transport you to the tides of the 18th century while grounding you firmly in the present. A feeling of sophistication is guaranteed, the nude coloring is sure to show off your summer glow, and the piece can be worn casually at the beach or over leggings in the city for a powerful, trend-setting look. The back of this corset also features gold eyeholes that lend the wearer an always-welcome dose of sass and edge.

The best part? No whalebone allowed. The materials of this piece blend supple sheep leather and cotton silk for a feel so comfortable we can’t even begin to imagine how jealous Marie Antoinette would be.

It turns out you can have your cake and eat it, too.

Bon appetit!
