A fresh new season calls for a fresh new round of outfit inspiration. Now that we’ve welcomed the start of autumn it’s time to turn our wardrobes to trans-seasonal dressing. This can often require some clever outfit planning to contend with the slightly unpredictable weather. Armed with airy knits, strategic layering and a few lightweight toppers, you’ll be breezing through the next few months with ease (and a stylish wardrobe to match). To help you get started here are a few style ideas to copy and paste into your own looks.
A neutral trench
A classic trench can be used to dress up jeans and a tee and add an element of polish.
Long sleeved dresses
A long sleeved dress is a great trans-seasonal option as it will keep your arms warm without being too hot. When it gets cooler just add a pair of tights and boots and you’re good to go.
Even if the weather is going to start getting a little colder you can always rely on the help of bold accessories to brighten up a look on a dreary day.
Shades such as beige, black and navy are great, versatile coat options but sometimes you just want something a little brighter and punchier to lift an outfit.
This season layering will become your best friend. To make it a little more interesting swap a plain shirt for a printed version to give your look more energy.
Have fun with footwear this season. Ankle boots are an autumn/winter staple but why not switch up your trusty black pair for a coloured pair instead?
You’ll be living in knits for the next few months so get your wardrobe off to a good start by investing in some neutral sweaters. They will become the easiest go-to for those days when you need to keep warm but it’s not so chilly for a jacket.
Over the knee boots
Update your boots this season to an over the knee pair. You can pop them on with a dress or over jeans and leggings and remain nice and cosy without compromising on style.
Striking oversized sleeves make this a piece that can turn an ordinary off duty ensemble into something quite eye-catching.
If you don’t already have a black skivvy in your wardrobe you need to track one down, stat. They work well with everything from skirts to pants and layering underneath dresses.
A beautiful printed midi dress can form the centrepiece of a chic and ultra feminine trans-seasonal look. This is also a great example of how to extend the wear of your spring/summer wardrobe by layering pieces with spaghetti straps with long sleeved tops and topping with a gorgeous coat.
This is a great riff on formal suiting. Black jeans paired with a black blazer style jacket and simple black loafers make for a classic look with a little edge.
