Ways to Wear: Transitional staples to wear now and later

Although it’s never easy to say goodbye to the summer, there’s probably a host of autumn/winter trends that have already started to catch your eye. The good news? There’s easy ways to style the new pieces you can’t resist with staples you already have in your wardrobe.

To make mastering the in-between a little easier, we’ve handpicked six versatile essentials that you can wear now and later this season.

1. Easy elegance
 

The simple shirt dress has been refreshed in a forest fern print this season. In a slim fit with a ruched waistband, our Claris print design is a fashion-forward staple for work and weekends. The long sleeves ensure the overall look is demure, while the fabric is featherlight making it easy to team with contemporary trainers and bare legs. When winter arrives, layer it under longline coats and contrasting knits for an effortless finish.
 

2. Corduroy gets cool
 

This feminine A-line skirt is cut from a soft cord fabric in a wearable shade of dusty pink. With a button fastening and above-the-knee length, it was designed to be paired with simple tees and chunky sweaters. For work, polish your look with textured ankle boots and polo neck knits. We’ll be wearing ours with lightweight outerwear and statement earrings until winter.
 

3. Grown-up tailoring
 

Give outfits a purposeful finish with a mensy blazer. In a hardworking navy hue, our cord double breasted style is the transitional jacket you’ve been waiting for. Not only is navy perennially sleek, the clever cut of this design means it will always be on heavy rotation. Lend a whole new meaning to your jeans-and-tee combo by shrugging it on at weekends, or add an androgynous edge to printed dresses for work.
 

4. Slogan staples
 

Slogan tops continue to lead the way for autumn/winter and are the perfect way to add a modern touch to outfits. Our You Me Oui sweater is crafted in a relaxed black cotton-jersey with statement white handwriting. Style yours with pleated skirts and wide-leg trousers now and add cosy layers later in the season.
 

5. Throw-on and go
 

Designed in a comfortable fit, these navy Helena trousers feature a sporty side stripe and drawstring waist that feels distinctly now. Wear with a refined shirt and boots for an office-appropriate look or with white trainers and t-shirts at the weekend. When temperatures start to drop, they’ll look just as good with cashmere knits and faux fur coats. A true wardrobe investment.
 

6. Wild thing
 

Animal prints are continuing to have a moment, so add something wild to your wardrobe this autumn/winter with our most-wanted wrap skirt. Designed in a flattering midi length with a fitted waist, it’ll look cool with a slogan tee now and signature knits later on. Fancy going all out in leopard print? Pair it with our Rosa T-shirt for maximum impact this season.
