As the weather cools and summer comes to an end, your wardrobe can sometimes feel in seasonal limbo, with the unpredictable weather and the impending new season questioning everyday style. Our guide to transitional dressing offers a pre-seasonal perk up for your wardrobe, with key pieces that work whatever the weather.
As the weather cools down, faux fur stoles and collars can be a fitting compromise as we wait for coat weather. Add crisp whites to a look with a luxurious gilet, or anticipate autumn with an adoption of the season’s favourite hues, most notably burgundy. The mixture of textures add interest to an urban look, giving it a luxe appeal on top.
THE WIDE TROUSER
Bridge the gap between the short and the flare with a pair of cropped trousers, the silhouette of the transitional season and oh-so office friendly. Embrace these new lengths for a non-committal nod to pre-autumn cover-ups that compliment the recent flare revival.
THE SHIRT DRESS
Swap classic plaids in safe cuts for boxy shirt dresses in flowing silhouettes. Layer up for that luxe feel, or add a hat and brogues for the ultimate urban edge to the look.
Move seamlessly into the new season with a summer skirt/autumn knit combo. Dare to bare in wrap skirts and pleated pieces, paired with oversized jumpers in relaxed shapes for an effortless look.
The weather is unpredictable at this point, but that doesn’t mean you have to scramble for your heavy winter coats just yet. Keep summer’s vibrant colours alive with impact coats in kooky prints and stand-out colours.
When it’s too chilly to wear a mini, the long skirt swoops in to save the day. Its versatility is endless, so keep it wide and below the knee, the brighter the better.
The start of the new season may be exciting for some, but take advantage of the milder weather with subtly strapped tops, with their dainty details adding a luxe feel to an end of summer outfit.
