There’s no denying that Autumn is slowly making it’s entrance. The chillier mornings and evenings require versatile transitional dressing pieces to take us through to the Autumn and beyond, into the Winter.

One of the best approaches for this time of year with unpredictable weather is having great layering options which offer both practicality and style. Layering can be a bit of a minefield… whilst it offers all the practical and oh so stylish fashion feels, you do need to go careful as over baggy layers can ruin your style aesthetic!

For easy layering, focus on versatile pieces that will take you through seasonal changes effortlessly. Here are some useful pieces to add to your transitional wardrobe:

1. Lightweight Polos or Crewnecks – either fine knits or jersey for adding warmth without bulk – ideal for layering underneath clothing.
2. Chunky Sweater Vests – super versatile and can transform a variety of outfits, adding texture and style.
3. Trenchcoats and Blazers – timeless and effortlessly chic
4. Biker Jackets for that edgy, on-the-go look.

Top Tips for Nailing your Layering Game

• Add a turtleneck under a midi dress or slip on a blazer over the top to add depth and style.
• A sweater vest can transform a classic shirt or midi dress into a cozy, autumn appropriate style
• Keep it tonal – experiment with tonal colours like ivory, mocha and camel, or different shades of grey or blue. Layering them together creates a chic and stylish look.
• Don’t let layers overwhelm your shape – add a belt over or under a knitted garment to help keep your silhouette and provide a focal point.
• Get the most out of your wardrobe by taking your summer dresses through to the new season – layer a chunky sweater over the top, tucking the sweater up and into a belt worn under it to keep your waist highlighted.
• Elevate your look by adding a blazer and boots for a very current look.
