Transitioning to an autumn wardrobe is an art form that takes practice; no sooner have you packed away your lighter jackets and t shirts, you’re reaching for them again for an unexpectedly warm afternoon. Utilising layering is essential; jackets, knitwear, even a camisole over a t-shirt can instantly make your outfit more weather appropriate. The trick is to layer pieces that work well all year round, pieces you grab for and that make you feel great, allowing you to create unlimited looks that will take you month to month, and especially this trans-seasonal period.
It’s the perfect time to invest in beautifully crafted garments that will see you through winter and will easily adapt for spring-summer too, lasting for years to come. We have a range of cleverly designed pieces that can help with your transitioning wardrobe; all of our ready-to-wear collections are made in England, they are considered and created with you in mind.
Creating a wardrobe full of pieces that fit well, are well made and will be the base of unlimited looks, and make changing-season dressing much easier. It’s also incredibly beneficial for the environment too; slow fashion, and ‘buying less, wearing more’ cuts down on your carbon footprint. We’ve put together our favourite pieces that are easily adaptable and will make new season, autumnal dressing a breeze!
A good maxi skirt will always have a place in your wardrobe. Our Stawley skirt is versatile, not only for the changing seasons, but also for an occasion. With its beautiful layers of tulle and delicate spot print, it works well dressed up or down. Team with a silk cami (our Brooklyn cami would be ideal!) and nude heels for a summer wedding, or take it through to autumn-winter by adding an oversized knit and chunky boots.
Our Warwick jacket is exquisitely made from an intricate floral jacquard, with an exaggerated mandarin collar giving the finished piece a stunning silhouette, adding structure and glamour to any outfit. It’s perfect as a layering piece, easily dressed up or down whatever the season. Wear open over a t-shirt or camisole and pair with jeans or trousers for the days you may need that extra warmth in the evening, or wear closed with a maxi skirt for winter weddings and Christmas parties.
Another staple that you will find indispensable throughout the year is a pair of our Manhattan trousers. High-waisted and with a wide leg, these flattering trousers have limitless pairings whatever the temperature. Worn with light-weight blouses and t-shirts and sandals in the summer months, then easily adapted with a pair of boots and a chunky knit for when it starts to cool.
Everyone needs a go-to blazer, and our Boston is the perfect option. Again, perfect for layering, and incredibly versatile, this luxurious crepe blazer will work hard season after season. Layer over blouses, t-shirts and vests for an easily removable outfit maker in the transitional seasons. Also worn underneath coats for colder months, the Boston blazer will add style to any occasion.
The Soho is the perfect blouse all year round. With it’s classic, sharp cut and exquisite animal printed silk, it’s light enough for spring-summer, and easy to layer, perfect for transitional outfits. Keep it casual in spring by teaming with jeans and ballet pumps, and add a coat and boots for autumn days.
Christon Silk Dress
This classic shirt dress is one you’ll reach for again and again. Like all of the designs, Sassi understands the female form, and the Christon dress hangs perfectly on every figure. Ideal with nude accessories for a spring-summer wedding, but just as easily worn for winter occasions too, just add a blazer and black heels.
Chelsea Shirt Dress
The Chelsea dress is a great addition for transitional weather. Made with beautiful hand pleated lace, and coming in 3 colour-ways, it’s long sleeves give that extra warmth whilst allowing you to keep cooler in warm temperatures.
