Top 4 Mid-Season Wardrobe Saviours
If you haven’t noticed, we’ve just stumbled our way into August. That’s right, August. Somehow, without even realising, we’re more than halfway though 2016.
It might be hard to believe, but we’ve reached that point in the year when dressing for the appropriate season starts to get a little tricky. Summer is fading away – if you were lucky enough to have one that is. The jury’s still out in Scotland – and the shops have upcoming winter trends in their sights.
Whilst this means there are plenty of bargains to be found, it’s also more than a little frustrating when you’re not quite ready to return to your winter wardrobe staples.
With that in mind, we’ve hunted down a few of the best pieces from this summer’s offerings and put together a quick guide on how to work them this mid-season.
Slinky Plunge Maxi Dress
The hero of festivals and exotic beach breaks, maxi dresses can seem a little daunting once the sun goes away. The truth is, they’re actually a really stylish way to enjoy the best of both worlds.
The plunge style of this red maxi dress is perfect to see you through day or night. Layer with a checked shirt, long-length necklaces and chunky platform boots for an edgy daytime look Rihanna would be proud of. For drinks that evening, just take off your shirt and let the cross strap back do all the flirting.
Flared Culotte Trousers
The most surprising thing about culottes is that literally any shoe works with them. Whether you’re feeling excited about your new statement stiletto sandals or the Disney Vans you finally managed to get a hold of, now’s your chance to show them off.
For the perfect sports luxe look, team these navy culottes with a cropped white vest, statement necklace and trainers.
Choker Style Top
A flattering and subtle nod to the 90s, wear with jeggings and peep-toe boots for a look that’ll see you through even the most miserable of rainy autumn days.
A really simple silhouette and colour, this top is crying out for accessories. Treat yourself to a manicure and tap into the latest metallic nail art trends to add a bit of sparkle.
Pleated Chiffon A-Line Skirt
Mixing fabrics and textures is a top styling trick that instantly adds interest and a luxury vibe to your look. Create some contrast to the chiffon by adding chunky knitwear and sequin heels. The pleats add movement, making this a feminine skirt for any occasion.
With the right styling and attitude, it’s easy to transition from summer to winter dressing without having to splurge on a whole new wardrobe. Follow our advice and put your signature style on a few key pieces to see you through the mid-season slump.
