12 outfits for travelling between hot and cold climates

Hi guys!

Since I travel a lot between Singapore and the UK, I have to deal with the changes in weather and figure out how to manage my clothes so that I don’t have to bring separate clothes for each climate. So I’ve put together a little post about it! This is how to make 12 outfits out of these items: a knitted jumper, a tartan button up, a plain t-shirt dress, jeans, shorts, tights, jewellery and shoes. A lot of these outfits are ones I wear to school in the UK, or out in Singapore so hopefully you’ll find this helpful! (i’m actually wearing a tartan printed t-shirt dress with tights and doc marts right now!!)


outfit 1:

This first outfit is the simplest, I basically just paired the t-shirt dress with these cute black sandals. Although arguably you could bring one pair of sneakers and wear it in both climates, I really like sandals or anything with open toes so I opted for two separate pairs of shoes, one for each climate. Depending on the look you’re going for, you could pair it with the chunky statement necklace, or a more dainty little necklace.

outfit 2:

The next layer of this outfit template would be to add the tartan shirt! The shirt gives the whole outfit a completely different vibe. There is also more than one way to wear the shirt, you can have it over your dress, or tied around your waist.

outfit 3:

I’m a lot more into dresses, but if you like shorts, these next two outfits are for you. This combination is effortless yet extremely cute (and since I’m not necessarily the most comfortable with my body, it’s a lot easier than crop tops or things like that). Putting your hair up into a wired headband and you’re good to go!

outfit 4:

If you run out of outfits within your limited clothing, tucking your t-shirt dress into your shorts gives it a cute layered look. Alternatively, you could wear the shorts under without tucking the shirt into them just so that you can be more active and move around lots more without risking any wardrobe malfunctions.


outfit 1:

This outfit is what I usually wear to the airport when I’m heading back to the UK. The sweater and denim combo is super comfy (especially my topshop joni jeans which are super stretchy). The statement necklace is a nice touch if you want to look a bit less sloppy (also I love statement necklaces HAHA)

outfit 2:

This look is just really effortless. The tartan shirt is just a really casual easy thing to throw on when I’m feeling lazy but don’t want to look like a complete slob. you could just wear the tartan shirt with jeans. but if it’s too cold even with a coat, you could add another layer underneath (the t-shirt dress) and wear the tartan shirt unbuttoned!

outfit 3:

I really love t-shirt dresses! This is the simplest way to wear it on a lazy day (like today) with a coat and tights you’re definitely going to be warm!

outfit 4:

Layering your sweater over your dress not only keeps you warm, it also gives you an outfit that looks like a sweater and skirt combo! Of course you could do a bit more colour, but I generally like sticking to the same white/black/grey colour scheme.

outfit 5:

This look is basically like the earlier one for hot weather except with tights to keep you warm. The thing I love about summer clothes is that you can layer them with warmer things and they’re functional, you don’t need a whole new wardrobe for each climate.

outfit 6:

One of the few times I’m comfortable wearing shorts is when I’m wearing tights with them so I love this look! It’s really comfy yet the statement necklace makes it look like I put some effort into my look (even if I really didn’t)

outfit 7:

Once again shorts and tights (because tbh I don’t own enough pairs of jeans). The tartan shirt gives the outfit a really nice pop of colour on the black base of doc marts and tights.

outfit 8:

Last one! Pairing t-shirt dresses with basically anything works really well so if you’re trying to change it up a little, or you just feel like you don’t look like you’re wearing pants, shorts are a good way to add to this combination!

Okay that’s it guys hope this was helpful 🙂 please leave any comments if there’s anything you’d like for me to blog about!
