5 Autumn Transitional Wardrobe Essentials
When we move our wardrobe away from summer brights, but we are not quiet ready to embrace the dark side, transition your wardrobe from summer to autumn with the addition of some key pieces that will help make the most of what you already have in your wardrobe, making everything work much harder for you but make it easy and most importantly make it work for you! Embracing the autumn colour pallet which unlike summer can be a bit more simple. Incorporating some of the on trend colours like Orange for AW23 and this will take your Autumn Transitional wardrobe from Meh....to WOW.
The most hardworking pieces in our wardrobes are tops and blouses. Layer like a pro for the best transitional options. Keep the sleeves short until the temperature requires something a little warmer. Purchase some inexpensive basic pieces that will work through the Autumn season.
So faux suede is a hard-working fabric because it brings just enough warmth to take a transitional outfit where it needs to be, soft hues in a suede jacket are a great way to move the colour pallet from summer to autumn and look stylish too. Faux suede as a man-made fabric has a lovely stretch to it so can take an extra layer underneath when needed too.
Who is not delighted that the wide leg trouser is here to stay for another while! The most flattering and comfortable shape in trousers for all body types. Long worn with flat shoes or cropped with heels, flat shoe or boot for the ultimate in chic styling ! But equally embrace the oversized look by pairing PU or ponte leggings with an oversized top or knitwear.
Nothing says versatile and transitional like a dress, from smart shirt dresses for the office teamed with a nice flat court shoe to comfortable and cool midi dresses that can be worn with a short boot until the season changes and again the dress can be work then with a high leg boot for warmth and a really chic style.
Petit totes in a pop of colour with enough space to hold the essentials are a good way to add some colour to a transitional wardrobe. Autumn accessories especially handbags need to be prepared for all weather eventualities so a top close or zip option will prevent the contents from suffering from water damage.
