Ways to Wear: Transitional styles to buy and wear now


As your inbox begins to fill up with messages about the Autumn/ Winter collections and how to wear them, you might wonder how we’ve got to this time already?

At Whistles we understand that you are probably still planning that summer getaway, or perhaps you’re staying put in the city battling the temperamental British weather. So whatever your plans, we’ve handpicked some of the best transitional styles to buy now and wear for the rest of the season.

1. Bohemian state of mind

For an edgier approach to the modern bohemian trend, the Scarf Print Midi Dress is both directional yet distinctly wearable. This free-spirited vibe is achieved by the simple fitted waist and relaxed bishop sleeves with tie fastening details. Pair this look with cosmic jewellery and laser cut sandals for now, then rework with suede boots, a classic leather biker and a playful crossbody for the colder autumn months.

2. Everyday effortless

Whether it’s an A-line, pencil or fit and flare silhouette, no wardrobe should be without a leather skirt. Cut in the softest leather, the clean shape of the Jessie Leather A-line Skirt features a front zip fastening and subtle panel details. Stay true to the classically cool values of the leather skirt by pairing with a shrunken tee and minimal trainers for effortless off-duty style. For the colder months, choose pristine shirting with statement earrings and a forest green fur gilet. No matter what your autumn/winter style is, the Jessie Leather A Line should be part of it.

3. Evening allure

The little black dress needs no introduction. If you decide it is time to update yours, make a beeline for the new in Off Shoulder Frill Dress. The uncomplicated design of the delicate straps, fitted waist and fluted sleeves creates a feminine and classic silhouette. We recommend pairing this style with gold earrings and block heel sandals for summer eveningwear, while mid-block court heels and a luxurious sheepskin coat will elevate this dress for winter.

4. The seasonless staple

You may feel slightly ridiculous as you walk out of a Whistles store carrying a fully-padded, faux fur lined parka in the heat of July, but you can’t help it when you’ve found “the one.” Taking you from mild winds of autumn, to the “it’s cold out there” months of December, the Cassie Casual Parka will be your winter favourite for seasons to come. As practical as it is versatile, the Cassie Parka stands out with it’s contemporary patch pocket detailing and contrast faux fur collar. Wear it to work, or while walking the dog, we just don’t recommend wearing on the underground.
