We may only just be reaching the end of August but my brain is firmly planted into the incoming Autumn season. Luckily the British high street and many an online retailer agree that it’s high time we start embracing the season, unfortunately as always the British weather is being wonderfully erratic. Blazing 30 degree sunshine one day, buckets of rain the next!
Transitional fashion is tricky, but there are a few new seasonal items that should ease you out of your Summer dresses and sandals, and back into those oh-so-comforting knitted pieces and boots.
Check shirt, H&M | Suede skirt, Monki | Denim dress, H&M | Chelsea boots, Gap | Pointed flats, Zara | Mustard trousers, Mango | Wool tank top, Topshop | Khaki trench, New Look | Pleated dress, Zara | Wool scarf, Topshop
The transitional trends I’ve picked out all comes from this season’s take on 70’s inspired fashion – though this time it’s much less Stevie Nicks boho and much more Mila Kunis in That 70’s Show. But don’t let that scare you, this particular trend is perfect for this weird transitional fashion period.
Fabric-wise you’ll wanna dig out the suede and upgrade your Summer denim, wear both with minimal layering for the hotter Indian Summer days, but throw on a pair of tights and some Chelsea boots when the whether takes a turn for the worst. I’ve also thrown in some forever pieces (a trench, patent flats and a pleated dress) in the new season’s earthier colours.
