As the leaves start to fall and the breeze becomes that little bit crisper, you start to wonder what to wear in the awkward transition between light weight summer outfits and cosy cable knits. So how do you dress in this pre-fall period? There are easy tweaks that you can make to your summer outfits that mean you can dress both seasonally and stylishly!
Your favourite floral dress doesn’t have to be stored away for the winter months just yet! Why not couple with a light denim jacket and pair of ankle boots to make an effortless transition? Even add a pair of opaque black tights if the weather decides to become chilly. For a more effortless look throw on a lightweight knit over the top of a cute summer dress, so you can feel comfortable while looking great! Remodel your maxis, add a long knitted cardigan to a summer maxi dress or skirt and watch your outfit transform.
A pretty blouse is going to be the piece for AW15 and they can easily be worn in the heat of summer by pairing with denim shorts, however it can be just as easily worn in the early autumn months. Simply swap the shorts with a pair of dark skinnies and add a statement necklace for a different look that fits in perfectly with the tricky pre-fall season. Or for a more feminine look team with a pleated skirt, tights and a pair of knee-high boots.
Simply layering your outfits can mean you can stretch your summer wardrobe throughout autumn. For example add a black leather jacket and black tights to a white flowing playsuit to add a bit of edge to what you previously wore as a dainty beach outfit in the warm months. A must have layering item for this year is a poncho, this can be worn whatever the weather! Vero Moda vest tops are perfect for wearing on their own in the sunshine, or for layering underneath a lightweight knit. But remember to stick to only three layers, to avoid drowning in too many clothes!
A huge upcoming trend for 2015 is big textured coats; these can be worn all year round. Thanks to our temperamental weather it can be added to our summer outfits on those breezy summer evenings for a bold statement. For the colder days add tights and knee-high boots for a show stopping look!
Going forward, striking out there knits are going to be huge! This may include the pattern or some interesting detail, one of our fave’s is a cut out shoulder detail. These are perfect for now worn with little denim shorts and think tread sandals and then for the winter layer up and pair with equally chunky soled boots! Only and Vero Moda are always giving us a range of affordable gorgeous knits!
Use accessories to turn your warm-weather basics into outfits fit for the cold. Scarves in brown, camel and mustard can instantly convert your summer pieces to more fall appropriate combinations. For example casually loop a camel coloured scarf around your neck with a light dress, and match with a camel coloured handbag to complete the look. In contrary with these neutral accessorises, wear your bright and bold summer bags to spice up an all-black autumn attire.
