Transitioning your wardrobe between the seasons can often be challenging, especially after the ‘warm’ October we’ve had, it can be difficult to know what to wear when the weather isn’t always how you’d expect it to be for the time of year. I’ve styled an outfit that shows you my favourite way to transition my wardrobe from the hot summer, to the cold autumn / winter. I find that the best way to transition your wardrobe for autumn, is to take some of your favourite summer pieces, and style them with some new (or existing!) autumn pieces. In this outfit, I took a skirt that could’ve been worn throughout the summer, and paired it with a jumper, to help keep me warm in the colder months – I’m already making a sacrifice for my legs, I can’t have cold arms as well!
This skirt is perfect for autumn, whilst the weather has still been fairly mild for this time of year, and I love that I’ve been able to wear this skirt as part of my transitional outfit. What really stood out to me with this skirt is the colour – it’s literally perfect for autumn, with its burnt orange colour and faux suede texture. This combination is a must-have for an autumnal outfit! I also love the black button detailing down the side of the skirt, which gives it that extra bit of definition, whilst still keeping it quite simple, yet stylish. The material is super soft and really easy to style – you could definitely dress this skirt up for an evening look, but I decided to keep it fairly casual for more of a daytime / autumnal walk look.
Like I said earlier, the best way to transition your wardrobe from summer to autumn, is to take some of your summer pieces and style them with a few autumn pieces, so I took a summer skirt and added a new autumnal jumper, which is ideal for this time of year. It’s really soft inside, which will help to keep me warm, and I love the oversized style. You can’t really see it, as I tucked the jumper into my skirt, but the bottom of the jumper is ever so slightly cropped with a raw edge. You could wear this jumper with some high-waisted jeans, and it wouldn’t show any skin, it’s not really cropped, but it’s definitely slightly shorter at the bottom, compared with the oversized sleeves and baggy style. The stripes can be really flattering, and the brown / orange tones in the jumper go really well with the colour of the skirt, making this the perfect outfit for transitioning from summer to autumn / winter!
I chose to complete this outfit with a pair of black heeled boots, which are great for both a daytime and evening look – I’ve worn them for both occasions before, and they really make an outfit stand out! The faux suede material complements the same material in the skirt, and black goes with everything, so it was ideal to wear these with this outfit. They’re also really comfortable to wear throughout the day, as they have quite a thick heel which definitely helps! I also styled this outfit with a black chain cross-body bag, keeping the accessories and details quite basic in colour, whilst still adding a touch of style.
This whole outfit is from Primark, which is great for not breaking the bank, but extremely difficult to link the exact products, as their website isn’t fantastic, and they don’t have all of their products listed on there. I’ve linked the closest products I could find below, but you may find them in-store a lot easier.
I also included this outfit in my Autumn / Fall Lookbook, which you can watch here if you haven’t already!
