How To Nail Transitional Fashion: Top Do’s and Don’ts
Autumn can be a tricky time when it comes to fashion. You may be leaving for work in bitterly frosty conditions yet heading home in bright, pleasant sunshine. So, just how do you adjust your outfits accordingly?
From those all-important seasonal layers to the best autumnal footwear, join us at Shoon as we talk you through our top transitional fashion do’s and don’ts.
Do use light layers on cooler days
Autumn is all about light layers, and the operative word here is most definitely ‘light’! Yes, you may feel like you need a big winter coat when you first get up in the morning, but by mid-afternoon, you may be left hugely regretting your choice.
Instead of going all out on a coat, opt for light knitwear and scarves that you can layer up in the morning, yet easily throw in your handbag if not needed later on in the day.
Don’t get rid of all your summer dresses
You can lose a whole vital portion of your wardrobe by cutting out your summer dresses! Instead of packing those much-loved dresses away until next summer, instead, try working them effortlessly into your autumn wardrobe. Simply add a transitional pair of tights and your favourite ankle boots, then complete the look by throwing on a cosy chunky cardigan or a denim jacket.
Do opt for a chic autumnal colour palette
What’s the point of autumn if you can’t have fun with those classic autumnal shades? While colour trends come and go, there are some autumnal shades that will never go out of fashion. Think falling leaves, and look out for clothing and accessories in pretty red, orange, yellow, brown and green hues. A mustard coat, khaki jumper or a pair of rich tan boots, for example. will instantly inject stylish autumn vibes to any look.
Don’t blend into the background – have fun with prints!
While we love some muted tones come autumn, switching to your new season wardrobe shouldn’t necessarily meaning dulling it down altogether. Prints are a great way to have fun with your look in the cooler seasons. From a plaid scarf to a pair of leopard print shoes, autumn and winter are still prime time for making a bold statement!
Do choose your footwear carefully
We’re afraid the days of throwing on a pair of pretty summer sandals are behind you; your footwear needs an update to suit the new season. Footwear across the autumn months needs to be comfortable, warm and, of course, stylish.
Boots are your new best friend for chillier days. From ankle boots to sophisticated long boots, there are a whole host of options available just waiting to transform your seasonal ensemble. On those pleasant milder days, simple yet stylish flats such as loafers or fashion-forward trainers are ideal for completing your look.
