As the morning chill in the air begins to settle in for good, it seems that we’ve well and truly bid farewell to summer.  It’s not all bad news though, as with autumn comes a plethora of new sartorial options. Get ready to cosy up in knits, coats and boots that will see you through to Christmas and beyond. Read on for our top three fundamentals of transitional dressing.

Learn to Layer

Transitional Dressing - Millbrook Coat

Millbrook 4 Button Jacket £120

The number one rule of transitional dressing? Layering. Choose a foundation of basic tops, knits and jackets that work just as well together as alone. We’d recommend limiting yourself to a few key colours to ensure everything works in harmony; our top picks for AW17 are a base of navy, khaki and grey with a pop of red. A mohair knit in a paprika hue will instantly update your existing wardrobe. Choose layers over a chunky knit for a chilly morning and you’ll avoid sweltering should the afternoon offer some sun (here’s to wishful thinking). 

Try Texture

Transitional Dressing - Aspen Shearling Reversible Coat

Aspen Faux Shearling Reversible Coat £200

Steer clear of prints that you’ll be sick of by November, try adding some interest early by incorporating textures instead. Velvet, leather and lace pieces will all add a contemporary twist to Autumn ensembles. The Aspen shearling coat adds a luxe finish to any outfit and has the added benefit of being reversible; double the outfits with just one piece. 

Upgrade your Outerwear

Transitional Dressing - Ladies Winter Coats

Mercury Checked Coat £150

Coat season is very nearly upon us. Avoid the last minute panic once the weather truly turns and invest in a new season silhouette early this year. Oversized shapes are at once current and practical and are roomy enough to throw over a chunky knit in the coming months. Alternatively try a tailored style for a timeless finishing touch to any outfit.
