Unsure how to tackle the transeasonal weather that comes with Autumn? We've put together a quick guide on how to get the more out of your Summer wardrobe this season. Hint, the key is layering!
It's a tale as old as time.
You buy yourself a beautiful new Summer wardrobe in anticipation of the lovely sunny season (and to help keep comfortable in 30 degree heat while pregnant!) and next thing you know it's the end of February and Autumn is looming up at you like an unwanted house guest. "But I barely got to wear my Summer clothes!" you find yourself saying, "what a waste of money".
The best news is that, if you layer properly for the funny transition from sunny to rainy, you can re-wear your favourite Summer pieces again and again!
One of the most defining parts of a season change is the varying temperatures throughout the day. It may say it will be 26 degrees but when you leave the house in the morning it's 10 degrees and freezing! Your best bet is to pick out a gorgeous Summer dress or outfit that will keep you cool and feeling confident when it's super hot but wear a cute cardigan or jacket over the top in the morning to ward off the cold. A full winter coat is too much to carry around once it gets too hot but something light that can easily be transferred to your handbag is a winner.
These are our favourite layering picks:
This blazer is the perfect piece to throw on in the morning over your sunny day outfit. It's not bulky, is easy to carry around and looks uber cool paired with a black dress or our Mila Maternity Denim and a plain Tee! The coated texture will help transform a simple outfit and the leather look it creates will give you an easy confidence.
Our new and revitalised Scarlett Maternity Cardigan is such a versatile piece to keep you going all Autumn and Winter, the waterfall style is extremely flattering on any body and can be dressed up or down depending on the outfit, which means you can take it from desk to dinner and let it do the heavy lifting against the cold. Now all you have to do is pick your favourtie colour!
This ultra luxe wool vest is your go to piece this season to stand out! Have a top or dress with a fun sleeve and don't want to cover it up with long sleeves? Our Frost Wool Vest will keep you feeling cosy without sacrificing your fun personal style! In 2 gorgeous colours you can go super bold in Marine or keep it chic and casual is Camel. Keep an eye on the website too becuase we'll be bringing out a lovely cool grey for winter!
This cardi is a super cute option for those who don't want to wear a 'full on' cardigan when the days are still feeling so warm but still need something as a light buffer in the morning. The Aspen Cardi is extremely versatile and can be worn with nearly anything without taking away from your outfit, plus it's so darn comfy!
Last but certainly not least is our gorgeous new Grace Pleat Back Knit. This fantastic knit is perfect for trans-seasonal weather as it is uber comfy and warm whilst the back cotton shirt deatiling is fun and fresh and will keep you from overheating. The best bit? when winter is actually here you can layer a coat over the top for (extra!) warmth, meaning you'll really get all your wear out of it!
