The Summer Fall Out
September is upon us. The leaves are turning along with the weather and we find ourselves once again stuck in sartorial limbo. While it is high time to invest in some all new autumn winter garms, this tricky transitional period can also be the perfect time to get the last few wears out of those favourite summer pieces with the help of a few trusty tips.
Thought we’d gone through all the members of the denim family tree? Well think again. The girlfriend jean, a slimmer fitting version of its boyfriend counterpart, is perfect to pair with sandals for those unseasonably warm days. Then when the real autumn chill hits add socks and brogues for effortless smart casual attire. MOTO Girlfriend Jeans, £40, Topshop
Keep it Tight
Just because there’s a chill in the air doesn't mean you have to bid farewell to your favourite shorts and skirts just yet. Make like Versace A/W15 by teaming your favourite summer bottoms with a pair of this season’s must have patterned tights. Versace Autumn-Winter 2015-16
When it comes to prolonging those favourite summer items, layering is key. And it needn’t break the bank either as one of the best layering pieces is probably already hanging in your wardrobe. A classic white shirt is the ultimate partner for your summer staples, from strappy 90s dresses to lightweight summer pinafores. Clean Double Layer Crop White Shirt, £28, ASOS
Return of the Mac
If you’re not ready to cover those pins up just yet then a lightweight mac is the perfect cover up to keep out that autumnal chill. Whether you opt for a duster, trench, or traditional mac the classic lightweight style is the ideal accompaniment to your shorts and skirts through this transitional period.
