Between the season's style discover how to make the most from your wardrobe and what to buy now and wear through Autumn into Winter.
Between the summer season coming to a close and the appearance of the autumn season sits an in-between time filled with changeable weather that can halt even the most seasoned fashionista in their fashion tracks
But these dressing dilemmas shouldn't prevent you from stepping out in style every single day, providing you've got a few between seasons staples close to hand.
While the summer season is all about keeping as cool as possible, the period in-between summer and autumn can throw more than a few chilly days our way. But a layered outfit will see you through clammy commutes and breezy lunch hours, which is at the top of our between-season dressing must-have list.
When putting together a layered outfit, start with the lightest layer and build up to the heaviest. An oversized linen shirt can be thrown over denim jeans and a tee for a relaxed weekend off-duty look. It's also a good idea to up your knitwear game, particularly as cardigans fit easily underneath an array of lightweight outerwear and look easy breezy when worn over dresses and linen trousers.
Blouses are another must-have layering piece. A statement printed blouse can be worn underneath a fitted blazer for a boardroom-ready outfit or beneath a knitted vest for a more casual look. On warm mid-season days, blouses can be paired with wide-legged cropped trousers or with leggings and sandals for when simplicity is the order of the day.
Midi length pieces offer maximum versatility, keeping you cool in the warm weather and being supremely easy to layer up whenever the weather takes a turn. One of the easiest ways to wear a midi dress is with trainers and light outerwear.
And you're guaranteed to be extra grateful when those ominous looking clouds appear - which they will - if you've chosen a light jacket that will resist those rain showers.
Play with Texture and Tone
Although there are no hard and fast rules, every season presents a fresh opportunity to incorporate different tones and textures into your outfits. As we move closer to the autumn season, coats become an integral part of our wardrobes and they come in a vast array of styles and materials to suit all weathers.
A quilted shacket offers some protection from the rain and can be worn with tees, blouses, jeans, leggings and more. Similarly, a printed open blazer style jacket can bring an element of autumnal colour to your look as well as some structure to an otherwise floaty ensemble.
If the weather app says there's a chance of rain, it's often best to err on the side of caution and skip the sandals for a closed-toe loafer or mule. They have a much more summery feel than chunky boots but won't leave you stuck with soggy soles that can really put a dampener on your day.
