Transitional fashion

The transition from summer to autumn can be a difficult one as the weather is so unpredictable and it can be hard to decide what to wear. One minute it’s raining, and the next the sun decides to come out.

Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your summer clothes and what you need to help as the seasons change. Hopefully these tips will help you avoid walking out in the cold with a jumper, only to find the weather warms up.

Layering is key as the seasons change, light weight tops such as camisoles will be comfortable to wear if the weather warms up. Pairing them with outer layers, such as a cardigan or jacket is perfect for colder weather.

There are a few transitional staples worth investing in, such as a trench coat; they tend to be light and versatile in relation to colour and length etc. They can easily be layered and aren’t too much hassle if you end up taking it off. Cardigans are also a good staple to throw on when the air gets cooler and they’re just as versatile. I’d also recommend rain macs, they’re light but obviously very helpful when it rains.

Autumn doesn’t necessarily mean falling into the pattern of wearing darker shades of clothing, unless you want to do that of course. A good way to get good use out of your summer dresses would be to simply layer them with a jacket, perhaps a biker jacket. If it works for you, you could always wear tights too.

Reds and oranges are in this season, so it’s likely you’ll see these colours pop up a lot in stores. Adding colours to your wardrobe is a great way to refresh your style.

If you’re someone that tends to go for more neutral colours, there are a lot of muted colours you could try out. This is the perfect time to mix up your style rather than falling into the same habits you’re probably sick of by now.
