Step into the new season in style and check out our edit of the chicest transitional wardrobe buys...
Feeling uninspired by your current wardrobe wares? Finding the tricky transitional weather difficult to master style-wise? You’re not alone.
As we head towards a new season, naturally, our wardrobe feels a little less wearable, but fear not, for a few clever buys will help you on your way to a chic September wardrobe, whatever your budget.
The key is to choose carefully, and keep colours neutral.
Cool new season staples to consider are roll neck knits (Topshop’s sleeveless version is our top pick), over the knee boots (Isabel Marant’s flat version is a must-have, and well worth the splurge) as are chunky capes, chic co-ords and suede jackets.
Some summer staples will continue to work with your new wears, think midi skirts, denim dresses and khaki shirts, and styled carefully, you’ll move easily into the new season, with very little effort.
