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 23. Cut from leather for a luxurious feel, it’s perfect for layering over knitwear and jeans when the colder weather sets in or with painterly dresses when you want a more elegant feel. 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 matching black 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. Crafted from durable leather in black 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 Sleeveless Knit

The knitted tank has shed its business associations and now graces catwalks and influencer feeds alike. Crafted from wool, this variation has been crafted from wool and is ripe for layering over relaxed T-shirts, sleek shirting and printed dresses from now until deep in winter months. The nude shade lends itself well to signature denim in mid blues and leather accessories too.

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.
