The Transitional Checklist: 5 Wardrobe Staples To See You Through Autumn
Inspired by the notion of ease and effortlessness, our transitional selection offers wardrobe staples to wear again and again. From overshirts designed for layering to dresses you can style into the evening, these are the five pieces we’ll be turning to as temperatures and seasons start to shift.
The signature overshirt
The overshirt has come into its own in recent seasons, and its must-have status shows no signs of slowing for autumn-winter 21. It’s perfect for layering over knitwear and jeans when the colder weather sets in or with painterly dresses when you want a more refined feel for special events. We’ll be channelling a utilitarian mood with a button-up shirt that works for both the office and outdoors – or pairing it with tailored trousers in a tonal hue for a fresh take on the two-piece suit.
The enduring chelsea boot
Build your look from the ground up this season with enduring boots that offer ultimate transitional and winter-wardrobe mileage. After an extended period of time spent shoeless at home, now is the time to refocus our footwear and step out in style. Crafted from durable leather in black and burgundy variations and designed with sturdy soles, our Chelsea boots embody a luxury that will last. Easily styled under wide-leg trousers or paired with midi dresses, these staples will become a lifelong wardrobe ally for years to come.
The modern waterproof
Coats are a must-have that we eagerly anticipate adding to our wardrobes each autumn, and our latest waterproof has been designed as a fluid hybrid of casual and elevating. Cut in a relaxed silhouette and crafted from a water-resistant fabric, it’s been designed with bonded seams and a hood to see you through unexpected showers. Pair it with signature jeans at the weekend, or layer it over tailoring and an oversized shirt for a polished, midweek moment. This is a coat that will pull together all outfits to ensure they feel right, wherever you’re heading.
The day-to-night dress
This season our dresses are a seamless mix of elegant and every day, decorated in unique prints in midi lengths that ensure ease of wear with little styling necessary. Simply pull on and go. Pair our distinctive marble print dress with knee-high boots for a look to pull focus, or style it with sturdy flats and cosy knitwear in complementary autumnal tones for days on the go. Come rain or shine; this is an irresistible dress that will remain a favourite for years to come.
The throw-on cardigan
Cardigans aren’t going anywhere, and our transitional styles come with a handmade feel, in classic silhouettes and a range of colourways from effortless neutrals to more lively hues that exude a fresh energy. This woollen style comes in a green that will uplift your outfits and put some spring in your step – pair it with mid-wash blue jeans and a pair of Chelsea boots or trainers for a transitional look that can work for anything. And, if your weekend includes a more formal occasion, team a cardigan with a slip dress or skirt, strappy sandals and a clutch to achieve a cool 90s-inspired evening look.
