After breezing through life in linen dresses and loose bohemian tops, the first sharp wind of autumn is an unpleasant sartorial surprise.How can you keep up those happy summer vibes while still staying properly warm? With a few well-chosen transitional pieces, that’s how.
Our shopping editor Tara Morris suggests that you start by looking for a light-weight jumper in a cheerful pastel shade. You’ll still feel connected to summer, but you’ll have a piece you can throw in your bag for when the air turns cold.
Then, a denim jacket. Choose the all-time classic boxy shape and mid-blue wash that works over pretty much any look.
For shoes, Tara recommends a low-heeled sling-back. Your toes will be toasty warm but your heels will provide a cheeky kick of skin under a tailored pant.
Her final tip is, of course, layering.“Loose dresses can be layered with T-shirts, jumpers and shirts to keep warmer. By next year, you’ll be ready to wear them solo for spring.”
