How to Make a Seamless Transition from a Summer to Autumn Wardrobe

As a change in season grows near, this is the perfect opportunity to take a look at your wardrobe and start to plan how you will make a seamless transition from your summer to autumn clothing. Because the weather doesn’t tend to do a dramatic change all at once, it makes sense to look for ways to incorporate the two seasons’ worth of clothing into one. We’ve got several tips that will help you do just that, making sure you look stylish and feel comfortable.

It’s time to embrace layers

One of the best and easiest ways to make that seamless transition is to embrace layers. Layers allow you to be prepared for any weather that you may encounter that day, and they are always fashionable. Just remember that you can be creative with your layers. It doesn’t always have to mean adding a cardigan or blazer; instead, you may want to layer under those summer items. For example, layering a button-down shirt under a favourite summer knit tank will create a luxe look that is ideal for cooler temperatures.

Wear lightweight breathable fabrics

Lightweight breathable fabrics are also a perfect option for this time of year. You’ll find that even in a long-sleeved top or full-length trousers, these fabrics will be cool and comfortable. At the same time, they will be more than enough on those crisp autumn mornings.

You can check out Luella for items made from all the most popular breathable and lightweight fabrics. Luella features clothing made from cashmere, linen and cotton – which make for perfect transition pieces. Their knitwear collections are so versatile that you can wear them all year-round.

Change up your accessories

Another way to make your wardrobe a bit more autumn-friendly is to bring in a different rotation of accessories. Choosing handbags and totes, hats, belts, and scarves in autumn-appropriate colour palettes is a common trick that expert stylists use. It’s just enough of a change to make the outfit feel fresh and stylish, yet you’re still getting use out of your summer clothing.

A few of the colours that will be trending this autumn include:

  • Indigo
  • Clay
  • Army green
  • Fuchsia
  • Red
  • Silver
  • Lilac

It’s all about the footwear

Perhaps one of the most impactful ways to make the transition between seasons is to change your footwear. This one tip alone will give every piece of clothing a different look and feel. Just imagine pairing that flowing summer dress with a pair of booties rather than strappy sandals. Suddenly it has a much different feel – which is perfectly suited to autumn.

If you’re in the market for some new footwear for the autumn season, be sure to look into the hottest trends which include booties, slouchy boots, knee-high boots, oxfords, clogs (flat and heeled) and chunky thick-soled loafers.

Using these tips will help to ensure that you are the picture of style and fashion as you make a seamless transition from your summer to autumn wardrobe.
