Fashion tips

Transitioning your wardrobe from summer to autumn

Layer up your outfit

As the leaves start to change and the temperatures begin to drop, it's time to bid farewell to the breezy days of summer and embrace the cosy charm of autumn. Transitioning your wardrobe from summer to autumn doesn't have to be a daunting task; with a few strategic choices, you can seamlessly update your look to match the season. Here's a style guide to help you make the shift.

1. Layer up

Autumn is all about layering. Start by incorporating lightweight, versatile pieces like cardigans, vests, lightweight jumpers into your wardrobe. These layers can be easily added or removed to adapt to fluctuating temperatures. Consider investing in a classic denim or leather jacket for added versatility.

2. Embrace earth tones

Autumn fashion often revolves around earthy, warm colours like burgundy, forest green, mustard yellow, and rich brown. Incorporate these hues into your wardrobe through clothing, accessories, and even nail polish to capture the essence of the season.

3. Transitioning your tops

Swap out your summer tops and tees for long-sleeve shirts and blouses. These pieces can be paired with jeans, leggings, or skirts to create stylish autumn outfits.

4. Update your bottoms

While shorts and mini-skirts were summer staples, it's time to bring out your jeans, leggings and tights with skirts for autumn. These will keep you warm and stylish as the temperature drops. Don't forget to include a classic pair of boots to complete your look.

5. Footwear matters

Speaking of boots, autumn is the perfect time to showcase your footwear collection. Ankle boots, knee-high boots, and Chelsea boots are all great choices for this season. Opt for versatile colours like black or brown to ensure they complement various outfits.

6. Accessorise wisely

Accessories can play a significant role in transitioning your wardrobe. Swap your straw hats and sunglasses for cosy scarves, beanies, and leather gloves. Add statement pieces like chunky necklaces or a stylish belt to elevate your outfits.

7. Outerwear essentials

As the weather gets chillier, invest in a versatile coat or jacket that can be layered over your outfits. A classic trench coat, a warm puffer jacket, or a tailored blazer are all excellent options.

8. Don't forget about dresses

Transitioning to autumn doesn't mean you have to abandon your dresses. They can be paired with boots and a jacket and mini dresses can be layered with tights. Our sweatshirt dress is a perfect dress option for the cooler months.

9. Wardrobe organisation

Lastly, take this opportunity to declutter your wardrobe. Store away your summer clothing and bring your autumn essentials to the forefront. This will make getting dressed in the morning a breeze!

Transitioning your wardrobe from summer to autumn can be an exciting process, allowing you to experiment with new styles and cosy textures. Embrace the season's colours, layer up, and accessorise strategically to create fashionable and functional outfits that will keep you looking and feeling great as you welcome the new season.
