The transitional season: 5 essential items for your wardrobe
As we draw an end to summer, we can’t help but feel excited for the potential of a new wardrobe for the upcoming season.This transitional time brings the uncertainty of weather which can leave you feeling helpless when finding something to wear. We’re here to make that easier, with our top picks you can select the best pieces to wear now and through Autumn/Winter.
It’s time to switch the linen for something more substantialthat will also work into the depthsof winter with some clever and experimental layering. Choosing a brighter coloured knit will ease you into the transition of Autumn/Winter whilst still keeping you cosy as the temperature drops. Play around with the style of knit too, if you opt for an open knit this can be layered with a vest top now and then switched for a roll neck later down the line.
A smock is not just for summer, the voluminous and easy to wear style is perfect for cross-season dressing. With a quick change of shoes this dress can go from a picnic in the park to a stroll around the Christmas markets, which makes it the perfect investment this season. This fun and playful style can be styled with cowboy ankle boots or a heavier biker boot in the colder months – plus some tights, it can get pretty cold in the UK.
A cosy cardigan is like a warm hug on a cold night and we’re so pleased that it’s the season for them. A long line style will always feel elegant, it will look great when styled with a t-shirt anddenim jeans for something more casual. Or pair it with a printed midi dress when you want to elevate the look.
A shift in weather comes with a shift in footwear, banish the sandals for the ankle boot. This season we are seeing the resurgence of the cowboy boot and we are overjoyed! The chunky Chelsea bootand hiker style bootshit the mark for practicality as well as style. For something dressier, kitten heel boots hold the class of a high heel with us feeling much steadier on our feet. All the styles work with jeans and dresses, so you’ll be wearing them for months to come.
Blazers are reliable no matter the weather and with tailoring a key trend for this season this is the perfect item to add to your wardrobe. Whether you opt for a figure-hugging tailored shape or decide to go down the route of a contemporary oversized style, when simply styled with jeans and a t-shirt it’s a look that won’t fail.
