What to wear?
It’s a familiar problem and one that only gets harder to answer as we move from one season to another. That pesky period when it’s not quite summer, not quite time to dig out your winter woollies.
But between-season dressing doesn’t have to be a headache. Solve the dilemma of trans-seasonal clothing with these 6 wardrobe musts.
#1 The jacket
Put the puffa down! There’s no need to turn yourself into a walking sleeping bag just yet, but you will need something to sling over your shoulders as the cold creeps in.
Blazers, leather, and denim jackets are great for this, and can easily be styled up and down.
Need something more practical or just uber keen to keep your bangs dry? Go geeky chic and cover up with a parka or trusty trench coat. With a longer cut, they will protect your outfit and, if you go for a hooded option, you can keep your hair dry too – yas queen!
#2 The shoes
If you’ve been baring all in strappy sandals and flip-flops, it’s time to cover up. But before you go into full foot hibernation mode with thick socks and boots, the best transitional wardrobes will rock a lighter option.
Our fave? Trainers. Big in the fashion stakes for some time now, they’re super comfy and stylish. What’s not to love?
Chuck on with your floaty summer dresses and a cardi for a perfect ‘between’ season look.
Sneakers a no-go in the office? Step into your daily commute with a trendy pair of penny loafers instead.
#3 The trousers
It’s all about the wide-leg trousers as we head into autumn. Pair with trainers for a laid-back look or style with heels. Either way, they’re super comfy and look great. Offering more warmth than a short summer skirt, thanks to their loose fit these on- trend trousers will still keep you cool if the mercury does creeps back up.
They work equally well with a basic tee, shirt, skimpy top or jumper – so depending on your vibe for the day…and the weather outside…you can switch up your look.
#4 The shirt
Oversized shirts are still key for autumn/winter 2022. Wear open as an extra layer over a vest top or dress and use it to double as a jacket, giving you a cute look that’s completely flexible – button up if you’re chilly or take it off altogether if the sun comes back out to play.
#5 The crew neck
Hold up! It’s not quite time to crank out the polo necks and chunky knits just yet, but a lightweight jumper will help you to look hot without breaking into a sweat!
Emerging British label Libby Loves, do a great collection of lightweight jumpers. Check them out for funky patterns and a great range of fresh colours guaranteed to keep the spirit of summer alive.
#6 The pop of colour
Pink has been the colour crush of summer and the love affair looks set to continue.
If you’ve pinked up your wardrobe, then don’t think you need to push everything to the back of the rails. Pull the colour through to autumn. A pink tee will look great with a pair of mom jeans, trainers and a leather jacket thrown over.
Wearing up key summer pieces will not only save you money, it’s also a great way to keep your wardrobe looking vibrant – and stop the dreary winter blues from setting in.
