Styling hacks: How to wear your summer styles in autumn/winter
Just as we were setting into the carefree vibe of summer, filled with off the shoulder pieces, spaghetti straps and mini skirts, before we knew it that summer breeze is starting to feel a just that lit-tle bit cooler. While there is not much we can do to control the weather, the good news is you can still rock your summer styles in the cooler months – and look good. We reveal a few simple styling hacks that will have you layering like a boss.
1. Throw on a knit
Read: Do not pack away the minis’, shorts and dresses. Simply team them with a knit and you’re next season ready. Choose a light knit for autumn and step up to a chunky jumper for winter.
2. Layer up
With some simple layering, you can wear your slip dresses, tunics and playsuits all year round. Base layer with a classic white tee, turtleneck or long sleeve top and you’ll keep warm while rocking that fresh summer vibe.
3. The Sleeveless Vest
Not only can sleeveless vests layer on top of anything – they look amazing. Dresses, tees, shirts, skirts, pants and more. It’s a simple layer that adds some warmth and a whole lot of style.
4. Wrap up
For those days where it is too warm to warrant carrying around a jacket, but cool enough that you want to avoid the goose bump look, a wide scarf will be your saviour. And with the variety of colours and patterns available, a bold scarf can also double up as your outfit’s statement piece.
5. Boot it
Boots. They have to be one of the most exciting parts of winter. Not only do they look great and are so much fun to wear, they can be worn with almost everything! Throw on a pair of your favourite black or tan boots with your summer dresses, minis’, shorts and skirts and stay warm while oozing street style cool.
6. Invest in a Staple Jacket
It might sound like the most obvious, but a staple jacket is one of the most overlooked wardrobe pieces. Choose a classic style, and you’ll be covered across all occasions, moods and seasons – to the point that there is no reason to ever put it away. From a casual brunch to a night out, a leather jacket will keep up your style game, and add a splash of street chic. A classic biker cut jacket will pair with most looks and take you from day to night, week day to end and is guaranteed to be become one of your best all-season buddies.
