Some 50 years ago, fast fashion companies created a tactic to push consumerism during the Industrial Revolution, requiring people to update their wardrobe constantly. This tactic is called Micro Seasons. Fashion corporations make new styles rapidly so that consumers’ current clothes go out of style at the same rate. This pushes the consumers to buy new, cheaper clothes constantly. Over time this practice hurt the environment. Thankfully, designers and fashion factories become conscious of their surroundings and changing times that trans-seasonal outfits are born.
With the rising concern in climate change and environmental issues, plus this unprecedented time we live in, trans-seasonal fashion is what we need now more than ever. It not only is beneficial to the environment, but it can also literally weather down temperamental seasons and can last over time.
Simply put, these pieces are fashion basics that you can wear in between seasons and in most kinds of weather.
In Aura, almost all our creations are trans-seasonal. We create well-thought designs so you can style and reimagine them in many ways. Moreover, our clothes are crafted consciously using sustainable materials that help reduce the negative impact on the environment.
Here are some of these iterations that we pre-select for you:
1. Cannes Shirt
Long-sleeved blouses give a little more coverage than your basic T-shirt but are light enough to layer under jackets and oversized cardigans.
A long-sleeved cotton shirt is suitable for a sunny day as well as for rainy, chilly days, just like our Cannes Shirt. You can wear this timeless and multifunctional piece buttoned-down and tied in front with our Florence Shorts in Sage that fit a sexy summer vibe during warmer days. On the other hand, you can wear it buttoned up and match it with our Monaco Pants during rainy or colder days. However you wear it, overall, it gives off a total chic trans-seasonal look.
2. Roma Top
A nice sleeveless top is also an excellent addition to your wardrobe. Sleeveless tops are comfortable to wear when basking in delight under the scorching sun and easy to layer with on windy times.
Designed for those who know their style and make their trends, the elegant Roma Top is a comfortable loose top with a flattering square neckline. You can wear this as is with vintage-style jeans and a denim jacket. Pieces of denim are another perfect trans-seasonal pairing. The vintage-style jeans, in particular, provide the versatile hue and forgiving shape that work pretty much with anything. You can also layer the Roma Top with tight-fitting long sleeves underneath and the Florence Shorts in Tuscan for a more on-the-go look at the onset of cooler months. Lastly, Roma Top goes perfectly well with the Monaco Pants in Tuscan, whether for a relaxed lounging during the day or a chill veranda outing at night.
3. Florence Midi Dress

One simple sundress can transcend all fashion seasons. A midi dress is a solid fashion investment, no matter what the season. It is the most versatile and easy to wear piece. Soft, flowy, airy, and light floral printed dress is all you need to serve a transitional look.
Our limited edition Florence Midi Dress is an exquisite piece that features a beautiful print in warm, earthy hues. We use flowy rayon fabric that complements the flattering V-neckline. These smocked shoulder straps allow you to adjust the strap width, a cinched waist that helps create a form-hugging figure, and a subtly pleated hem rendering graceful movements. This delicate piece is perfect for dressier functions and excellent for both daytime and evening occasions.
Throw on a lovely kimono and a cover headscarf to complete a dazzling boho look for spring/summer. On the other hand, put on a nice knitted sweater and over-knee boots when the fall-winter comes.
4. Satin Wide Leg Pant
