Transitioning into the new season makes getting dressed a bit more challenging, but we’ve identified the key transitional wardrobe pieces that will help you ease into the colder months! Don’t go out and get a new winter wardrobe just yet…it’s all about making your current pieces go the distance. Get that creative juices flowing and mix it up!
Take your summer culottes into autumn by swapping your ankle-baring shoes for ankle boots. Not cold enough yet? Opt for an open-toe pair that’s ideal for that awkward in-between season. Pair it with a lightweight knit and you’ll look and feel autumn-ready.
Instead of throwing your floral summer skirt in the back of your wardrobe, style it differently. A boot in an accent colour will give it new life. Finish off the look with a bold leather jacket.
A loose shirt dress is your friend all year long. As temperatures drop, layer it over jeans – button it all the way; loosen a few buttons or throw it over a tank top. You can also dress it down completely with sneakers or take it up a notch with embellished stilettos.
We don’t reach for our strappy tops often as it gets colder, but you can breathe new life into these versatile pieces with clever layering. Show off your silky cami by wearing a lightweight knit underneath. Finish it off the fashion-forward way and layer with necklaces.
Wear your favourite summer dress all year long by pairing it with a long-sleeved top. Grab a printed shirt and wear it underneath – animal print is so popular right now; it’s hard not to be a part of this trend.
