As we head into the official last month of summer, it’s the perfect time to start considering pieces for autumn. And while the weather is definitely still warm enough to keep our summery pieces out for a little longer, it’s a good idea to start thinking of outfits in preparation for when the weather cools down. Keep scrolling for inspo for now, while bookmarking a few looks for later…
Casual dressing takes on an edgy feel with relaxed pieces worked back with a statement piece. A touch of animal print lifts this look while a tee and sandals make for the ideal low-key pairing.
A long sleeved maxi dress is the ideal transseasonal piece making it a great piece to wear now and wear later. Pop on a cardi or jacket when the weather cools down while still staying cool during the day.
Play with volume this season as an easy way to change the look and feel of existing outfits in your wardrobe. A top with a great statement sleeve is one way to rework an ensemble.
If your jeans are feeling a bit tired consider experimenting with the silhouettes that you pair with it. In this instance a top with a power shoulder instantly reinvigorates the look and feel of skinny denim.
Speaking of jeans, don’t forget about how chic a wide legged style can be. What you can pair with it is endless—a cute jumper, a simple tee or button down shirt can all be worn with this cut. Pop on some great accessories and you’re set.
Don’t forget that blazers are a forever wardrobe staple. If however your current collection is in need of a revamp, consider a more cutting edge style like the one above. The two tone colour palette and strong shoulder give it a distinctly modern feel.
Don’t be afraid to layer textures and prints. Leather worn back with tweed and silk make for a truly luxe ensemble. Adding a pop of colour via animal print heels is just perfection.
Jeans and a striped tee should be a go-to in any woman’s wardrobe because of its sheer simplicity and oh-so chic feel. Whether you wear it with a punchy coloured blazer or a classic trench, this is one combination that will never fail you.
Sometimes keeping it simple is really the only way to make an impact. This pared back dress with elegant finishes touches is the kind of style that can be worn in so many different ways. Accessories in rich tones complete the whole look.
Extend the wear of long sleeved dressed into autumn (and even winter) by pairing with boots. In the meantime, enjoy wearing it with beautiful sandals or heels.
If you’re scared of being swamped by a tailored wide legged pant, this is a prime example of how you can still elongate your frame and create a cinched in waist. A knotted shirt is subtly sexy but maintains its classic feel. If you don’t want to bare skin, simply pop on a white singlet underneath.
Tailored pieces in earthy tones look modern and classic at the same time. You could switch the turtleneck for a cami or tee now and go for a long sleeved option later.
